Joe DeMarco, a political gunslinger and trouble-shooter for John Mahoney, the conniving Speaker of the House, is asked to investigate what appears to be a minor case of fraud at a U.S. naval base. DeMarco discovers instead that an Asian espionage ring is stealing top secret data on nuclear submarines and that their leader, a deadly female spy, has a personal vendetta against DeMarco’s friend and advisor, Emma, a retired DIA agent. DeMarco is in over his head, outwitted at every turn by people more lethal than any he’s ever encountered, and he doubts that he’ll be able to protect America’s secrets or keep himself and his friend alive.From the Paperback edition.

Description : This tale of political suspense was one of the Seattle Times’s Top Ten Thrillers of the Year: “I couldn’t put it down” (Vince Flynn). Author of House Witness, 2019 Edgar Award Finalist for Best Novel There has been an assassination attempt on the president. He is only wounded—but his best friend and a Secret Service Agent have been killed. As it turns out, the attack wasn’t without warning. Gen. Andrew Banks, Secretary of Homeland Security, received a note that the president was in danger, and even more alarming, that Secret Service agents guarding the president had been compromised. General Banks is reluctant to tell the FBI about the note, partly for self-serving political reasons, and partly because he doesn’t want to damage the Secret Service’s reputation based on something that might very well be a hoax. So he requests help from his friend, Speaker Mahoney, and Mahoney assigns his man Joe DeMarco, who must untangle the truth behind the tragedy—and assess the danger . . . “[A] wonderfully complex plot, sardonic humor, and memorable characters.” —The Baltimore Sun “Lawson’s debut [is] in a league by itself . . . This is high-level entertainment.” —Publishers Weekly...

Description : Washington, DC, fixer Joe DeMarco is on a mission of revenge in a thriller that’s “fast, assured and as refreshingly unsentimental as Joe himself” (Kirkus Reviews). Author of House Witness, 2019 Edgar Award Finalist for Best Novel Joe DeMarco always knew that his father, Gino, had worked for a local New York mafioso. But it was only after Gino was murdered that DeMarco found out the truth—that his father was a cold-blooded killer for the mob. Now, twenty years later, a dying mob associate tells DeMarco a shocking secret: His father was killed by an NYPD cop who has since risen to the rank of police commissioner. And now, that police commissioner has been nominated to take control of the FBI. Torn between his long-held moral code, his conflicted love for his father, and his desire for vengeance, DeMarco must decide how to stop his father’s murderer before the man becomes absolutely untouchable: with his brains and his respect for justice—or with a bullet? Delivering “a tense, twisting plot and a sociopathic villain worthy of a seat in the House,” Mike Lawson once again proves himself to be a master of the down-and-dirty political arena (Booklist)....
