Months after a brutal double murder in uptown Manhattan shocks the city, sensational newspaper headlines herald the arrest and indictment of Felix Acevedo, a shy Bronx teenager who confessed to the horrific crimes. But downtown, in the district attorney's office, Butch Karp is seething.

Threatening the integrity of his office, an ambitious young assistant district attorney seeking career advancement cuts corners to indict Acevedo, disregarding Karp's fundamental rule: Never charge the accused unless the evidence leads inexorably to proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Now, damned by a coerced confession and a frenzied media, Acevedo sits in jail while a vicious killer stalks the city.

Meanwhile, Karp's wife Marlene Ciampi hits the streets for clues that will save the unjustly accused defendant. What she discovers puts her on the trail of the true perpetrator - a drug-addicted psychopath with an ax to grind - and a disgruntled police detective who is willing to lie, withhold evidence, and kill to be labeled a hero.

From the gruesome crime scene to a trial that will leave readers on the edge of their seats, Robert K. Tanenbaum's electrifying novel unfolds at breakneck speed as Karp and Ciampi fight for justice in a dramatic and challenging case that will thrill readers to the bone.
