House Justice : A Joe DeMarco Thriller
In four thrillers starring Joe DeMarco, Mike Lawson has made a name for himself as one of the most insightful and entertaining writers focusing on the dirty dealing in our nation's capital. In his latest, House Justice, his everyman hero Joe DeMarco gets roped into what might be his most dangerous and difficult case yet.
The trouble begins with a leak. An American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, and the CIA knows all about it thanks to a top spy in Tehran. But the story leaks, a desperate journalist publishes it, and the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and murdered.
The director of the CIA isn't about to let it slide. A valuable asset has been callously sacrificed, and he's going to find out who did it, no matter the cost, no matter how many rules he has to break. DeMarco's 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 she's in jail for not revealing her source, she is threatening to tell-all about their affair unless he helps get her out.
Mahoney dispatches DeMarco, whose job is to appease the journalist and find the source. But he isn't the only one looking. Someone is tailing DeMarco, hoping that the fixer can help him enact revenge. House Justice is classic Mike Lawson--fascinating characters, inside-the-beltway intrigue, and a gripping plot packed with surprises.
