No Lesser Plea
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Roger “Butch” Karp has been around New York long enough to realize that the judicial system can be dirty and cynical. But he still believes in justice. So when a vicious sociopath tries to dodge a brutal murder charge by convincing the court he is incompetent to stand trial, Karp teams up with firecracker Assistant DA Marlene Ciampi to unleash the full force of their relentless energy, hardboiled wit, and passion for the truth to put the killer away for good. They will accept no lesser plea. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
I jumped right into this series. I have read the last several books in this series. I enjoy Karp. He is a good attorney. This might have to do with the fact that Karp is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Yet, don't let this confuse you into thinking that Karp is a sleazy attorney type. No, he is one of the good guys. Someone that you want fighting for you if you find yourself in trouble.
However, you might not really experience all of what Karp has to offer in this book. It was nice to go back to the beginning. Yet, I felt that this story was not one of the strongest showings. It seemed like half of the story had nothing to do with the main story. In addition, I was not really that interested in the characters. The court scenes are realistic. If, I was a new reader I might consider checking out the next book in this series. Luckily, I have seen the progression in this series and it does get better.
