Robert Tanenbaum paints his characters with a bold brush, especially Butch Karp, the six-foot-five chief assistant DA and his crusading, tougher-than-tough, lethally armed wife. They're both back in Resolved, the 15th installment of this best-selling series set on the edgy, mean streets of post 9/11 New York City. This time, an escaped psychopathic killer involved in a sordid, deadly deal with radical Islamic terrorists is after Butch and his family. Lee Sellars' narration keeps the pedal to the metal as Tanenbaum's trademark action hurtles on.
