The former Homicide Bureau Chief in the New York District Attorney's Office, Tanenbaum is also one of America's most successful and famous trial lawyers - who has never lost a felony case yet - and former two-term mayor of Beverly Hills. Kane, of course, has designs on killing Butch Karp and his family. What they don't know is that Andrew Kane's strategy is to join forces with a terrorist group and organize a major attack in New York City. Once again, Tanenbaum writes a masterful thriller involving the most memorable - and un-putdownable - corruption and courtroom confrontations.

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Bring back Michael Gruber. October 4, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase.
The first books of the series were ghost written by Michael Gruber, a fact noted by Tanenbaum who dedicated most of these books to Gruber in acknowledgement of his contribution. The truly terrible quality of the last three books, culminating in Counterplay, makes it clear that Gruber is no longer assisting in the writing.
I can't believe that these books have been professionally edited. The plot is absolutely ridiculous Tanenbaum asks us to believe that Al Qaeda would align itself in planning a terrorist attack with Kane, the imprisoned bad guy from Fury, because he also sells illegal arms. Kane is clearly insane and carries more baggage than any dozen other arms dealers together but we are asked to believe that al Qaeda links up with him, breaking him out of custody and thus arousing all of NY's police and of course the Catholic Church which Kane savaged.
Almost every character from previous books has been brought back but in a context that makes it seem, as another reviewer has noted, that Tanenbaum didn't read the earlier books. For example one character, John Jojoba, a reformed alcoholic who committed to sobriety to properly raise his son and who spent Fury having a spiritual battle against his old Viet Cong nemesis who just happens to be Marlene's old buddy Tran, what a coincidence!!

Or Lucy, who in Absolute Rage tells her boyfriend that her amazing liguistic abilities are dependent on her remaining a virgin, is in Counterplay and Fury, without explanation, living and fornicating with Ned, a highschool drop out but a sharpshooter with a sixgun. Worse than the bad writing, idiotic plot, ridiculous characters and ludicrous coincidences is that Tanenbaum can no longer write a good trial story, which was once his forte.
In Counterplay, Karp takes second seat in a murder prosecution in support of his old buddy Guma brought back in Fury on a case that the Karp of the Michael Gruber books would have laughed out of the office. It is, in fact, the complete reverse of what Karp preached repeatedly in earlier books: DAs go to trial on what they can prove, not to achieve justice. Guma and Karp want "justice" for a murder victim and take a case to trial that is devoid of provable evidence they don't even have a body.
Save your money. Don't buy this book. This is bad stuff.
