"Tanenbaum is one lawyer who can write with the best of them."
--Joseph Wambaugh, New York Times bestselling author of Hollywood Hills

"Tanenbaum is one hell of a writer."
--New York Post

"He has become a master of this genre, and Act of Revenge may be his most exciting and best effort to date."
--Vincent Bugliosi, New York Times bestselling author of Helter Skelter

A classic, pulse-pounding thriller from the legendary Robert K. Tanenbaum, Act of Revenge plunges the popular author's long-running series protagonists, New York City Chief Assistant District Attorney Butch Karp and family, into the lethal heart of a bloody turf war between the Mafia and ruthless Chinese gangsters. An elite member of America's contemporary crime fiction and thriller royalty--a master whose work stands tall among the novels of John Sanford, Lee Child, Robert Crais, and Brad Meltzer--Tanenbaum entertains magnificently, displaying true storytelling muscle with Act of Revenge.

This book has a tone that I haven't seen for so long--it took me quite a while to figure out what it was. This book was published before 9/11/01 and so, it's tone is very, very insular and un-paranoid. How refreshing. Anyway, an excellent read and how easy it was to sympathise with each of the characters is a testament to the skill of Mr. Tannebaum. I was Lucy when I was her age without the language ability and I've been Marlene and Butch too. Even Sweets has a place in my conscience as does Tran. Please read and redescover what book reading was like before the world descovered Terroism.
