Manhattan’s homicide bureau chief investigates a murder at the UN in the New York Times–bestselling author’s “most powerful thriller yet” (Vincent Bugliosi).
While on his way to the UN, a Turkish diplomat is gunned down in the street. All signs point to an ancient blood feud, and the NYPD quickly tracks down their lead suspect: an Armenian nationalist they believe was out to avenge the Armenian genocide. He fits their suspect profile perfectly—so perfectly, in fact, that Chief Butch Karp is beginning to doubt the story.
With the help of his crime-fighting wife Marlene Ciampi, Karp digs into the diplomat’s death, uncovering a deadly web of corruption far more sinister than even he could have imagined.
Written by legendary prosecutor and New York Times–bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum, Justice Denied exposes the kind of dirty dealing that goes on in the shadow of the UN.
Justice Denied is the 6th book in the Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
