The 17th of Tanenbaum's thrillers with the duo of Manhattan District Attorney Dutch Karp and his renegade wife, Marlene Ciampi, is the fourth of this series read by Lee Sellars. This time the plot is a combination of political corruption, police cover-ups, terrorist plots, kidnapping, and a professor's alleged rape of a student. The plot is a little too complicated, but Sellars's comfort level with the characters allows the story lines to flow. Without his experience, scenes involving Karp's "circle of friends" would be difficult to understand. Sellars clearly delivers the fast-paced dialogue and keeps the characters defined. In the final minutes Tanenbaum opens the door to book Number 18. Can't wait! R.B.T. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
