A prosecutor defies the FBI, CIA, and Mafia to bring terrorists to justice in this thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of Justice Denied.
After hijacking a flight to Milwaukee, a group of Croatian terrorists inform the FBI of bombs they’ve planted across the country. If their demands are not met, the bombs will explode. The plan goes perfectly until one of the weapons goes off in the Bronx, killing a police officer—in assistant district attorney Butch Karp’s jurisdiction.
Prosecuting a few terrorist cop killers should be a slam-dunk, but Karp and his assistant, Marlene Ciampi, are getting resistance from unexpected quarters—including the NYPD itself. The Archdiocese of New York hires a top lawyer to defend the accused. And when the FBI, CIA, and Miami Mafia team up to undermine the case, it’s clear these Croatians are no ordinary terrorists. As Karp and Ciampi uncover powerful ties, and secrets that reach from anticommunist Cuba to Nazi war crimes, they realize their fight for justice has become a fight for their lives.
From the New York Times–bestselling author and former Manhattan assistant district attorney, Depraved Indifference is an insider’s “damning indictment of our court system and an entertaining exposé of the DA's office” (Publishers Weekly).
