About the Author

Robert K. Tanenbaum is the author of thirty-two books-twenty-nine novels and three nonfiction books: Badge of the Assassin, the true account of his investigation and trials of self-proclaimed members of the Black Liberation Army who assassinated two NYPD police officers; The Piano Teacher: The True Story of a Psychotic Killer; and Echoes of My Soul, the true story of a shocking double murder that resulted in the DA exonerating an innocent man while searching for the real killer. The case was cited by Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren in the famous Miranda decision. He is one of the most successful prosecuting attorneys, having never lost a felony trial and convicting hundreds of violent criminals. He was a special prosecution consultant on the Hillside strangler case in Los Angeles and defended Amy Grossberg in her sensationalized baby death case. He was Assistant District Attorney in New York County in the office of legendary District Attorney Frank Hogan, where he ran the Homicide Bureau, served as Chief of the Criminal Courts, and was in charge of the DA's legal staff training program. He served as Deputy Chief counsel for the Congressional Committee investigation into the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He also served two terms as mayor of Beverly Hills and taught Advanced Criminal Procedure for four years at Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley, and has conducted continuing legal education (CLE) seminars for practicing lawyers in California, New York, and Pennsylvania. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Tanenbaum attended the University of California at Berkeley on a basketball scholarship, where he earned a B.A. He received his law degree (J.D.) from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley.

Reviews

Tanenbaum's run-of-the-mill 19th thriller to feature Manhattan district attorney Butch Karp and his wife, Marlene Ciampi, picks up where 2006's Counterplay left off. Karp is recovering at Beth Israel Hospital, after being shot by his rival and fellow prosecutor, Rachel Rachman, who was in turn gunned down by Ciampi. Various members of the Karp family have helped thwart terrorist outrages aimed at the pope. The mastermind behind the plot against the pope, mayoral candidate and murderer Andrew Kane, is believed dead, but Karp suspects that someone at a high level in U.S. security circles fed Kane key information and remains poised to do the country further harm. Once again, Karp's plucky daughter, Lucy, becomes involved in a plot so improbable that the author has Ciampi comparing it with the far-fetched conspiracies of The Da Vinci Code. Series fans will be pleased, but those seeking sophisticated political suspense set in a post-9/11 New York City should look elsewhere. (Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"In "Malice", a unique cadre of crime fighters confronts its greatest battle yet -- to protect the streets of New York City from an international nightmare. Tanenbaum pens an extraordinary tale of crime, terror, and betrayal that illuminates the dark threats we face today while reminding us that American justice, fortified by brave men and women, can still protect all we hold dear." -- Catherine Crier, bestselling author of "A Deadly Game "
""Malice" is what we have come to expect from Robert K. Tanenbaum, the master of the legal thriller. It's another riveting crime story leading up to a terrific courtroom drama, the kind TV should have, but rarely if ever does." -- Vincent Bugliosi, former Los Angeles district attorney and author of " Helter Skelter" and the acclaimed "And the Sea Will Tell"
"The best legal thrillers have an authentic voice, heartstopping action, and a pace that doesn't let you quit till you've turned the last page. Robert K. Tanenbaum is guilty as charged on all three counts, and delivered another great crime novel with "Malice"." -- Linda Fairstein, bestselling author of "Bad Blood"
