In this exciting installment in the bestselling “grittily realistic” (Booklist) series, district attorneys Butch Karp and Marlene Ciampi work to expose the corrupt and murderous leader of the longshoremen’s union.
A villainous union leader is willing to go to whatever lengths necessary to protect his corrupt longshoremen’s union. When a whistleblower tries to clean up the system, the leader sees his way of life threatened by this bold newcomer. He orders an open hit contract to kill the man, which is carried out by three of his underlings. Soon the law picks up on the trail, and Marlene Ciampi and Butch Karp team up to expose the man for the fraud and murderer that he is before the body count increases.
Exhilarating and action-packed from the very first page, Tragic is the latest Butch Karp thriller “guaranteed to keep fans hanging from a cliff” (Kirkus Reviews).
