In his sixteenth novel featuring the indomitable prosecutor Butch Karp, Robert K. Tanenbaum blends real-life headlines into exciting plotlines, brilliantly combining the seedy underworld of rap and the scandal-plagued Catholic Church into a fascinating tale of betrayal and bloodshed. HOAX opens as the murder of a rap star, seemingly the victim of a gang-related attack, leads Karp into the shady realm of New York City politics. Further complicating the matter, the manipulative and dishonest Andrew Kane, a man who would be mayor, appears to be controlling the city's elite like pawns. Meanwhile in New Mexico, Karp's wife comes across a disturbing series of sexual assaults against children at the hands of exiled priests - an appalling chain of abuse cases that is traced back to New York and to the upper echelon of the Catholic hierarchy. Sensational plot twists, heart-racing action, and brilliant crime solving converge as Karp attempts to untangle a web of corruption and violence...
