A chilling sequel to Fury finds the Karp family scrambling to handle the prison escape of murderous former mayoral candidate Andrew Kane, who harbors intentions of joining a terrorist group and organizing a major attack on New York City. 60,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
When betrayal results in the cold-blooded murder of a busload of schoolchildren to accomplish the escape from custody of vicious sociopath Andrew Kane, New York District Attorney Butch Karp finds himself embroiled in a raging quest for vengeance that could cost him, his family, and thousands of others their lives. With an intensive manhunt ongoing for the fugitive Kane, Karp and long-time colleague Ray Guma open a cold case and pursue murder charges against wealthy Manhattan power broker/banker Emil Stavros, whose socialise wife disappeared nearly fifteen years earlier.
Meanwhile, Karp's wife, Marlene Ciampi, has let her fascination with her husband's lesser-known family comprised of Russian gangsters pull her into a dangerous world of Islamic terrorists, Chechen rebels, and Russian agents engaged in nefarious events straight out of today's real-world headlines.

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.
