Now the guilty are filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city of New York, the police, and the two assistant DAs who tried the case.

Against a backdrop of Russian mobsters and corrupt lawyers, Butch and Marlene Ciampi are on a mission to restore the system's lost dignity and bring the rapists to justice. All the while terrorists are at it again, planning to blow the roof off Times Square on New Year's Eve.

Fun read, fast-paced, decent plot. Tanenbaum's characters are so good that even if the plot may not be the best at times, the book is still quite enjoyable
