Summary: In New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum's most explosive thriller yet, Butch Karp takes on a controversial defense in the courtroom, as a deadly terrorist plot unfolds in the heart of Manhattan.
Claiming God commanded her to gruesomely murder her three small children, a radical political science professor with a high-profile politician husband pleads insanity, leaving New York District Attorney Roger "Butch" Karp the arduous -- and incredibly unpopular -- task of proving that she's not.

They must find an assassin known only as "The Sheik" before he orchestrates a bloody massacre that could devastate the country forever....
