Nobody knows the big-city criminal system from the inside like Robert Daley. Now, the former deputy NYPD commissioner, "New York Times" correspondant, and acclaimed author of "Prince of the City" and "A Faint Cold Fear" presents his boldest novel ever. "Tainted Evidence" focuses on New York Assistant DA Karen Henning, a woman about to find her ambitions at war with her principles and her loyalties torn by her passions. When a desperate, drug-dealing murder suspect guns down five cops in a Harlem police raid gone wrong, the city's long-simmering racial unrest explodes in uncontrollable turmoil, both in the courtroom and on the street. Caught in the middle, Henning is tempted to break her own personal taboo. She falls in love with her star witness - and the storm it unleashes can shatter her life, and even the system she has tried so hard to defend.
