Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When the Secretary of the Navys nephew tells him that two colleagues at a naval base are committing fraud, he is skeptical and reluctant to start an official investigation. So he asks Speaker of the House John Mahoney to send his fixer, Joe DeMarco, to check out the story. DeMarco and his friend Emma, a semi-retired intelligence agent, soon realize that what they thought was a low-stakes government swindle is something far more terrifying. Soon theyre mixed up in a deadly conflict with Chinese spies, and not only is Emmas life in danger, but Mahoneys is as well.

Praise for The Second Perimeter

“Spies, former spies, and criminal operatives entangled in a deadly and suspenseful war of attack and reprisal. What could be more entertaining?” –Thomas Perry

“Proves that Lawsons fine debut was no fluke. While the authors prose is highly readable and his plot fast-paced, its the character of DeMarco… that separates this new series from the herd.”—Publishers Weekly

“Lawson again ratchets up the suspense and takes DeMarco on a wild ride.”—The Oregonian

“At once a solid thriller and a revealing look behind the scenes of American politics.” –Booklist
