Mystery Writers Key West Fest, Keynote Speaker:

Author Robert K. Tanenbaum.

New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum is a nationally known attorney and legal expert. He is one of the country’s most respected trial lawyers and has never lost a felony case.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Tanenbaum attended the University of California at Berkeley on a basketball scholarship. He received his law degree from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. At the outset of his distinguished career, he was an Assistant D.A. in New York County, where he ran the Homicide Bureau, served as Chief of the Criminal Courts, and was in charge of the D.A.’s legal staff training program. Mel Glass, John Keenan, and D.A. Frank Hogan were his esteemed mentors, and Echoes of My Soul is a tribute to them, written at the request of Mel Glass with his active involvement.
Tanenbaum’s tireless quest for justice led him to be appointed Deputy Chief Counsel for the Congressional committee investigations into the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Following an esteemed career as a successful prosecuting attorney and high profile defender, he served two terms as Mayor of Beverly Hills and continues to teach law in California, New York and Pennsylvania. A popular media guest, he regularly appears on television shows as a legal commentator.

He is the author of three non-fiction books, including The Piano Teacher: The True Story of a Psychotic Killer and Badge of the Assassin, the true account of his investigation and trials of self-proclaimed members of the Black Liberation Army who assassinated two NYPD police officers – later adapted into a movie starring James Woods as Tanenbaum. He is also the bestselling author of the 26 book Butch Karp series featuring two fictional District Attorneys in New York.

A native of New York, Robert Tanenbaum currently lives with his family in Beverly Hills, California.
