display_descriptionBook Five of the bestselling Butch Karp legal thriller series: Karp goes undercover to take on mob ties to professional sports. When he goes undercover to bust mobsters who have infiltrated the sports world, Butch Karp glides effortlessly from the criminal courts he dominates as a prosecutor to the basketball court. Police have found the body of a pro basketball star in a car on the edge of the city, the glove compartment stuffed with cocaine. The investigation leads to a sophisticated ring of sports fixing and drug trafficking, and Karp's own background as a college basketball standout helps him close in on the crooks. But while Karp obsesses over a case that fulfills his childhood dreams, his wife and crime-fighting partner, Marlene, and unborn child will fall into mortal danger. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert K. Tanenbaum including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
