New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum takes legal suspense to dramatic new heightswhen his hero, District Attorney Butch Karp, goes up against a ruthless union leader with too much power, too many secrets, and too many enemies to silence . . . or kill.
Prizefighter tough. Street-hustler smart. Pit-bull vicious. Longshoremens union leader Charlie Vitteli is like a cold-blooded villain straight out of Shakespeares Macbeth. Busting heads on the docks of New York as a brash union organizer, taking no prisoners as the newest president of the North American Brotherhood of Stevedores, Vitteli clawed his way to the top of the heapand no ones going to take him down now. Not if they value their lives.
Like Vince Carlotta. The union bosss fiercest rival has accused Vitteli of embezzlement, election rigging, and other abusesand even called him a crook at a union meeting. Now Carlotta is just another corpse on the waterfrontallegedly gunned down by an armed robber. It doesnt take a genius to figure out that Vitteli is somehow involved. But proving it is a whole other story.
Enter District Attorney Butch Karp and his wife, Marlene Ciampi. Drawn into the case by a friend who manages the East Village Womens Shelter, Marlene speaks to the abused girlfriend of a man who may or may not have been hired to kill Carlotta. Marlene follows her lead to three different assassins contracted for the hit. But connecting them to Vitteliand proving it in courtcould be the death of anyone who tries . . . unless Karp can uncover the one tragic flaw that could bring down the curtain on this Shakespearean villain once and for all.
Packed with ingenious twists, diabolical turns, and shocking revelations, Tragic is Robert K. Tanenbaum at his page-turning best.
