A parentâ€™s worst nightmare sets the stage for the
exhilarating new thriller in Robert K. Tanenbaumâ€™s New
York Times bestselling Butch Karp series.
York District Attorney Butch Karp has no qualms about
putting David and Nonie Ellis on trial following the
excruciating death of their young son, Micah. To him, the
case is cut-and-driedâ€”reckless manslaughter. Helpless
ten-year-old Micah counted on his parents to protect him
from the effects of a rare but treatable cancer. Instead,
the Ellis family relied solely on prayer and the guidance
snake-oil salesman Reverend C. G. Westlund, of the End of
Days Reformation Church of Jesus Christ Resurrected, to
Westlund and his zealous followers set up
outside the DAâ€™s office, angrily protesting the
of their â€śbrotherâ€ť and â€śsister,â€ť but the charismatic
leaderâ€™s true objective is to create a diversion from an
alarming fraud. He coerced Nonie Ellis into signing an
insurance policy that listed himself and the church as
beneficiaries in the event of Micahâ€™s death, but he needs
the Ellises to be exonerated to get the payout. When
Ellis discovers the deception, no amount of faith can
him from his gruesome fate.
Amid the firestorm of
controversy surrounding the case, Karpâ€™s wife, private
investigator Marlene Ciampi, heads to Memphis to uncover
Westlundâ€™s past. The evidence she finds is enough to blow
the top off the con manâ€™s schemeâ€”if she doesnâ€™t get
blown away in the process. Back in Manhattan, meanwhile,
Karp is confronted by a deadly nemesis from the past who
explosive plans of her own. The edge-of-your-seat action
comes to a head at the annual Halloween parade when a
merciless struggle between good and evil metes out its
fatal form of justice.
