Review:

"In Lawson's excellent sixth Joe DeMarco thriller (after House Justice), DeMarco, the fix-it man for womanizing, alcoholic John Mahoney, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, discovers he can get into serious trouble all on his own without the help of Mahoney, who spends this entry offstage in the hospital. When DeMarco's pious hospice nurse cousin, Paul Russo, is shot to death near the Iwo Jima Memorial, the position of the body — half on federal park property, half on an Arlington County sidewalk — presents a jurisdictional problem that's soon settled in favor of the feds. DeMarco, who barely knew his cousin and would rather be playing golf, finds himself unwittingly drawn into the mystery of Paul's murder and eventually a target of the NSA, the FBI, and the CIA. Readers will enjoy watching the smart, funny DeMarco, who's wise to the ways of Washington, as he extricates himself from one deadly threat after another.

Synopsis:

With his series featuring Joe DeMarco, fixer for Speaker of the House, Mike Lawson has won a reputation as one of Americas best political thriller writers. In House Divided, with his boss out of commission, DeMarco is on his own, a sacrificial pawn in a lethal game between a master spy and a four-star army general.

When the NSA was caught wiretapping U.S. citizens without warrants, a scandal erupted and the program came to a screeching halt. But the man who spearheaded the most sophisticated eavesdropping operation in history wasnt about to sit by while his country sleepwalked into another 9/11. Instead, he moved the program into the shadows. So when the NSA records a rogue military group murdering two American civilians, they cant exactly walk over to the Pentagon and demand to know whats going on. That doesnt mean their hands are tied, however. As the largest intelligence service in the country, both in money and manpower, they have plenty of options— mostly illegitimate.

DeMarco learns all too well just what the NSA is capable of, but he doesnt like being used, so he fights back. House Divided is inspired and compelling, a strong addition to this celebrated series.
