Abstract:

When a heavily armed drug-dealing murder suspect, holed up in an abandoned building in Harlem, shoots five officers in a botched police raid, the Manhattan district attorney's office has what appears to be an open-and-shut case. The aging district attorney passes over his politically ambitious chief assistant to assign the high-profile case to Karen Henning, the smart, young head of the trial division with a reputation for fierce independence. But the seemingly.

Straightforward ease, bogged down in the often-corrupt criminal justice system, explodes when New York City's racial unrest is sparked by the suspect's lawyer, a famous civil rights attorney and an expert at media manipulation. While others see the turmoil as an opportunity or threat to their political futures, Henning must baffle the city's political machinations to try the case with any hope of success. Simultaneously, she struggles to keep her family together despite.

Her growing attraction to a cop who is one of her principal witnesses. Robert Daley, best-selling author and a former New York City deputy police commissioner, has created a mesmerizing legal thriller that fully exploits his intimate knowledge of the NYPD and the inner workings of the city. In Tainted Evidence, Daley's eighth book about New York City cops, he proves himself to be the foremost chronicler of this country's largest and most controversial police force.
