    This is the 16th book of the Butch Karp Marlene Ciampi series It gets three stars not uite as good as some of the seriesStill Bruce and Marlene are always worth reading for me The books is the usally fast paced thriller Tanenbaum writes Drugs violence sex gangsta rap crooked cops and abusive priests all put into one bookI did like seeing Bruce and Marlene's twin teen aged boy Isaac and Giancarlo aka Zik and Zak inovovled in this case The relationship between the two twins in really well handeld they look so alike and yet react so diffently at times hoping to see them againA good entry in a long running mysterythriller series good dialogue; good characterizations; lots of humor sprinkled through it but still a serious legal thriller Recommended for any fan of mysteries; trhillers; action and adventure over age 18 Imho not recommended for under 16 due to uite a bit of violenceRead before I joined Goodreads so date unknown

    Again a short but engaging saga in Marleen and Butch world These two amazing characters can go to the ends of the earth and still have their paths and dramas collide So great things happen for the children also in this short book

    Read this for a book club Writing was okay but it was just so darn dark If you like that sort dive in For me felt like I'd been swimming in a sewer and need to wash the images from my mind Also characters are over the top Daughter speaks twenty languages? Aw shucks cowboy is so daggone cute and he rescues his lady love with a rope trick Bad guy Kane is SO bad you can imagine him twirling his mustache Snidely Whiplash styleNot for me

    Okay I like this series but hated this entry for a number of reasons And in case you didn't notice there are going to be a number of spoilers in this review 1 The coincidences Okay Marlene just happens to run into the American Indian who hunted her Vietnamese friend during the Vietnam War on top of that she stumbles across a conspiracy in New Mexico at about the same time that her husband stumbles into another part of it in New York Out of the fifty two states she winds up in the place with the bad guy 2 The Rehash The author goes into great detail reintroducing us to each character This should have been done with a paragraph or two I mean the comflict between Marlene and her husband Butch made for great dialogue and a great discussion of ethics and the law vs Vigilante justice but it did not make for a great rehash It was as if every character got mutliple pages of re introduction3 The recurring roles David Grale the leader of the homeless tunnel dwelling population is back ad nauseum C'mon how much can the author milk out of a character that is almost a rip off of the moleman villain from the old fantastic Four comic books Or how about the guy with Tourette's syndrome who always has a trivia uestion or two for Butch Interesting but EVERY NOVEL??4 The ridiculousness Marlene and Lucy drive off a cliff where their car is perched precariously on a tree Marlene gets a hand out and Lucy's new beau a cowboy rides up on a horse and throws a rope in the nick of time over Lucy's head and pulls her out as the car slides down into the gorge below C'mon5 The early revelations Let the reader actually wonder who the priest is but no the author reveals the identity of the priest early on and so there is no mystery on the reader's part no red herrings We don't want to see the priest in action and know he's the bad guy we want to discover him so the author lets us know WAY EARLY in the book who the bad guys are The only revelation is the leak from Butch's office What did I like about the book this time not much of anything While I love that each character his their own special gifts or flaws my favorite character Lucy need I pun that I love Lucy? gets short shrift in this one Sorry but I don't want to read a 25 page recap of all the novels to date and the author spent at least that many pages recapping This novel was way too long if the author had just given us a little suspense and little REAL detective work Sorry this one was not for me

    I don't know how a family could experience the multitude ofcatastrophes that the Karps have without deciding to relocate to a uiet farm somewhere and think of another line of work Now I realize I am reading one of a series number 16 about Bruce Karp and his family In order to fill 16 books lots of exciting stuff had to happen to them I really don't get Marlene Her daughter was kidnapped and raped in an earlier book Her 11 year old twin sons are attacked and one left blind again in an earlier book and she takes off to find herself or rehabilitate herself because she killed someone in an earlier book Not any mother I know; but her family instead of being resentful are just thrilled that she graces them with a short stay before she's off again to a retreat in New Mexico Well she does take daughter Lucy with her There isn't much mystery here We know who the bad guys are right from the start It's just a uestion of who's going to get caught in the crossfire before good triumphs The author gives a great deal of background about each character Sometimes than I needed or wanted to know My favorite character was the Indian sheriff I did enjoy this book I might be dense but I didn't get what the hoax was
