Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"After the head of the CIA, Jake LaFountaine, gives a secret briefing to a group of congressional leaders in Lawson's engaging fifth thriller featuring fix-it man Joe DeMarco (after House Secrets), someone leaks the information to the press. This slip results in the brutal killing of CIA agent Mahata Javadi ('one of the bravest persons I ever met,' LaFountaine tells a room full of reporters), who was working undercover in Iran. John Fitzpatrick Mahoney, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Washington's premier political puppet master, tasks DeMarco with finding the leaker. Despite three wild cards confounding the search — a Russian mobster, the wealthy head of a technology company, and a mysterious killer bent on revenge — DeMarco manages to remain alive and get himself a fabulous new girlfriend. The always present push and pull between the political machinations of alcoholic, egotistical Mahoney and De Marco's basic decency raises the ethical stakes. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

- House Secrets was an Indie Next List selection

- Mike Lawson is well regarded within the mystery and thriller community, and has appeared on numerous panels at both Bouchercon and ThrillerFest

Synopsis:

An American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, and the CIA knows all about it thanks to a spy in Tehran. But the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist and the spy is executed. DeMarco and the CIA aren't the only ones looking for the source of the leak.

Synopsis:

In his thrillers starring Joe DeMarco, Mike Lawson has made a name for himself as one of the most entertaining and insightful writers focusing on the dirty games played in our nations capital. In House Justice, an American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, and the CIA knows all about it thanks to a spy in Tehran. But the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist and the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and executed.

The director of the CIA isnt about to let the callous sacrifice of his valuable spy go unpunished. DeMarcos boss, Speaker of the House John Fitzpatrick Mahoney has his own reasons to get to the bottom of the leak: he once had a fling with the journalist, and now that shes in jail for refusing to reveal her source, she is threatening to tell all unless he helps get her out.

DeMarco and the CIA arent the only ones looking for the source of the leak. Someone else wants to avenge the spys death, and is tailing DeMarco hoping hell lead him to his prey. House Justice is classic Mike Lawson— fascinating characters, inside-the-beltway intrigue, and a gripping plot packed with surprises.
