Bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum astonishes readers with Fury, his most explosive book yet in the staggeringly popular Butch Karp/Marlene Ciampi series. In Brooklyn, a female jogger is brutally raped; the assailants are convicted and later exonerated by the Kings County DA. 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. While the cops and the criminal justice system are under media assault and opportunist political demagoguery, Karp has suspicions that there is corruption within his own office. Against a backdrop of Russian mobsters and corrupt lawyers, Butch and Marlene 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. Alas, the Karp family finds itself in lethal jeopardy, and to survive, they must team up and fight their greatest battle yet. Robert K. Tanenbaum has written a mindboggling thriller involving a web of corruption and courtroom confrontations. Fans of Butch Karp, as well as the classic New York crime drama, will find plenty to sink their teeth into with Fury.

I have read these great books for years but I got tired of all of the violent drama that Mr Tanenbaum wrote in every episode. I recently read TRAGIC and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a great courtroom drama!!
I just finished FURY. So ..... Marlene has finally matured and I have to say I am very glad. Butch is still Butch and I'm glad for that. I enjoyed the way the book was written to take us back in time and then bring us back to present time with several of the characters. I like how all the mini-dramas came together for the courtroom finale.
What I did not like was the craziness in the tunnels, getting the entire family, young and old, in such a perilous situation. Give me a break Mr Tanenbaum - you write real stuff then you interrupt it with craziness. Please, you've allowed Marlene to mature, we need you to do the same.
I've always enjoyed Tannenbaum's books, but this one is an exception. Simply put, it seems to be a rather amateurish rewrite of his earlier book ''Resolved''. The plots are very nearly identical, which is bad enough, but the writing is not up to Tannenbaum at all...the similes are contrived and unnecessary, the plot drags badly in spots and the antagonists are like the antagonists in a bad Clint Eastwood movie -- no redeeming features at all.
There is a terrorist plot to blow up half of NYC with ammonium nitrate and gasoline (Resolved) - a crooked DA (Resolved -- altho' this one is in Brooklyn, and in this case, a judge is also involved), a crooked attorney on his own staff (Resolved), Karp shoots down the crooked lawyer and a lying witness or two with skillful courtroom badinage and procedural manipulation (Resolved) -- there's a fight in the sewers of Manhattan and Lucy's homeless friends are involved (Resolved) .
One gets the feeling reading this book that...
Ordinarily I really like this authors stories, I think he usually does a good job moving his stories along. However, this time I felt it just got a bit silly. The base story was a serious crime that the reader wanted to see justice served but the story took a crazy turn and took about a 100 pages of nonsense before getting back on track.
