I HAVE ENJOYED ALL OF THE KARP BOOKS I HAVE READ. WOULD LIKE TO KNOW TITLE O F THE FIRST ONE. DO WE KNOW HOW MARLENE IS BLINDED, LOSES HER FINGERS?

The book before Hoax was Resolved. In Resolved, Marlene takes on terroists. I really like the Butch Karp series. I feel like I have watched these characters grow up. Mr. Tanenbaum has done a wonderful job developing each one, with both their virtues and flaws. I only wish that FX or some other network would do a series based on these books. I think it would be a hit, along the lines of the "Shield" or "Law and Order". Wake up Hollywood.

I have read most of the Butch Karp novels and am currently reading "Hoax," but feel I have missed the last Butch Karp novel immediately preceding this, but cannot identify it's name. Please help. Thank you

Picked up on other sites the suggestion that all of Tanenbaum's novels were by the same ghostwriter, except Hoax, which they felt was greatly inferior. I haven't Read Hoax yet, though I loved all of the others. Any thoughts?

Gianacarlo (sp) loses his sight in Absolute Rage.
Marlene reacts as you would expect, and Butch reacts to Marlene as we have come to know.

I thought we had read all of your books, but we cannot remember one of the twins losing his sight. Would you please tell us which book this is?

Page 401 of the paperback of Hoax states that a group of "cows" is called a murder....spell checking is great, but it should read "CROWS"!

On page 106 (Pocket Star Books edition) of Hoax. The Taos Pueblo people speak Tiwa, but they aren't the only pueblo people that do, there are at least 3 other pueblos that speak the same launguage. However, Towa is only spoken by the Jemez Pueblo people, a pueblo about 100 miles south of Taos Pueblo. Do like the series.

Time-line not withstanding, there are quite a few boo-boos in "Hoax"--still, I love the series, and eagerly await the release of "Fury" in September.
And while I realize full well other sites aren't allowed a mention, I'll just say real quick: I own a nifty little Ciampi-Karp discussion list, so check out Yahoogroups, and I hope you find us :)

On page 96 of Hoax, Jojola is described as being fifty-three. The following page states he was drafetd in 1966. The military did not draft 15 year old men during the Viet Nam war. Maybe Jojola was going to have his 54th birthday later in the year, but it still will not wash. As a drafted U.S. Army soldier who served in Viet Nam in 68 -69, I find this a bit irresponsible. "
This series does not take place in the present, but in the past. The first book 'No Lesser Plea' would appear to take place about 10 years prior to the publication date. There has been some compression of time since then, but I don't think he is in the 21st century yet.
