Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Robert. K. Tanenbaum delivers his grittiest, most ethically challenging thriller yet, as New York chief assistant district attorney Butch Karp fights for his family in the wilds of West Virginia's coal mining country.
While New York City sizzles beneath a blanket of early summer humidity, the Karp family is happily taking refuge in their renovated farmhouse on Long Island's north shore. Karp's battles against the City's corrupt politicians are never-ending. His wife, Marlene, is training guard dogs on their picturesque acreage; Lucy is enjoying her summer brake from Boston College and playing the part of the dutiful daughter, assisting with the running of the business and tending to her two rambunctious twin brothers.
The tide quickly changes when Marlene befriends her beachside neighbor, Rose Wickham-Heeney, a northeastern aristocrat turned wife of West Virginia coal mine union leader Ralph 'Red' Heeney. Soon after the fun-filled weeks of family barbecues and lazy afternoons with the Heeneys, the Karps discover that Rose, Red, and their daughter, Lizzie, have been brutally murdered back home in McCullensburg. Irresistible force meets immovable object when the West Virginia governor appoints Karp as special prosecutor to bring justice to the corrupt town, its union chieftain, and his band of merry tugs. Marlene joins Karp as he searches for the killers and works to save his own family from an evil that runs as deep as the mines that fuel it.

    I thought it a bit choppy reading also. Wish it had more about the dogs. did have great humour. Maybe I needed to read a book before this one -- you sort of felt like you came in in the middle of something. Only so so But ok for long drive.

    It gave me something to listen to on my long drive, but after it was done, I realized that there were no parts where anything good happened. I prefer a little up and down in my stories. This book had only bad. Kind of a downer.

    I really love Tanebaum's books starring the Karp/Ciampi family. However, I really lost interest in this story. Maybe it was the abridged version, but the story seemed a bit choppy and disconnected. I found it pretty predictable and boring.

    A very compelling book with a wonderful sense of humor. I often missed dialog because I was laughing so loudly. I will listen to all of his books as a result of listening to this one.

    This was an absolutely predictable book with an absolutely bad ending!

  • Melissa Maurice

    Great, great characters! Interesting plot but the characters are what move the story through and keep you interested. If you are looking for an unlikely heroine, you'll enjoy this book.

    Was easy to keep up with characters, loved to listen to it.
