In classic Robert Tanenbaum style, Counterplaypicks up right where Furyleft off - hitting the ground running, literally, with corrupt, would-be mayor Andrew Kane escaping from prison. Kane, of course, has designs on killing Butch Karp and his family. Hence, it's no surprise that Counterplaybegins with the Karp family scrambling to conjure a viable plan to handle the escape.

What they don't know is that Andrew Kane's strategy is to join forces with a terrorist group and organize a major attack in New York City. Once again, Tanenbaum writes a masterful thriller involving the most memorable - and un-putdownable - corruption and courtroom confrontations. Counterplay, the latest book in the bestselling Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series, proves to be another full-bodied, riveting page-turner.

I didn't think it was nearly as good as the previous two books. Too many things happened that were telegraphed by the author so they weren't real surprises. Cliffhangers are good for TV shows but I think in books they are quite tacky

The Tannenbaum/Michael Grueber books are terrific. W/out Grueber to hold him in check, Tannebaum has been spectacularly dreadful.

What a shame from an individual who had formerely been an awesome attorney, NYC ADA and writer, albeit one w/an excellent ghost. Readers beware.
