Counterplay, Paperback / softback Book

Counterplay Paperback / softback

Part of the A Butch Karp-Marlene Ciampi Thriller series

Paperback / softback


Continuing the suspense in New York Times bestselling author Robert K.

Tanenbaum's previous legal thriller, Fury, readers will discover more shocking twists and exciting action in the Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series in Counterplay. When the prison escape of a former mayoral candidate turned sociopath, Andrew Kane, leads to the murder of a busload of schoolchildren, Butch Karp, New York District Attorney, takes the case knowing Kane's allyship with a terrorist group will put himself, his family, and thousands of others at risk. As the manhunt for Kane continues to rage on, Karp refuses to quit seeking justice, tapping long-time colleague Ray Guma for help as they open a cold case to charge a wealthy Manhattan businessman, Emil Starvos, with murder based on the disappearance of his socialite wife fifteen years ago. While Karp searches for the fugitive and pursues the murder, his wife, Marlene Ciampi, gets pulled into danger as she is threatened by Islamic terrorists, Chechen rebels, and Russian agents engaged in nefarious events straight out of today's headlines. Another thrilling page-turner by Robert K. Tanenbaum, Counterplay gives readers plenty of corruption, confrontation, and courtroom drama in the bestselling Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series.
