Joe Demarco has a job that only a few people truly understand and that even less would envy. His office is in the basement of the Capitol and he answers to only one person, the Speaker of the House. When Speaker Mashoney has a problem or an issue with a colleague or is asked for help on a matter, the one person he turns to the most is Demarco. He is a fixer of problems.

The one that dominates this novel concerns a retired colleague's son who has died under circumstances which the police have called accidental. The deceased is a reporter for the Wasington Post and there is a suspicion that he might have been working on a story that ended up getting him killed.

While this seems a bit far fetched as Demarco investigates it, things turn deadly interesting when the wife of a US Senator who has White House aspirations come forward and informs Demarco that the reporter was indeed killed because of the story he was working on. She was the storie's source and the person responsible for the death was her husband. YIKES!!

Lydia Morelli, however, is not exactly a reliable witness. She has a serious alcahol problem, is distraught about the death of her daughter which she a lays at her husband's doorstep and has some serious credibility problems.

As Demarco tries to get to the bottom of things, events start to spin out of control and the twists and turns of the remainder of the book are interesting, to say the least and will probably keep you up late trying to get to the end of what turns out to be a good, solid read.

In this installment of the Joe DeMarco series Lawson takes his storytelling and prose to the next level. DeMarco is a 'fixer' for Speaker of the House John Mahoney. DeMarco did not have a lot of options when he graduated from law school - the son of a mob enforcer was not employable by a white shoe law firm. But family connections gets Joe a sub basement job doing favors for the Speaker. Most of the time those favors involve errant children, unfaithful spouses or lawmakers voting the wrong way. And sometimes those favors are more complicated....

A former congressman's son drowns ... an accident his father can't accept. He asks his friend, the Speaker to look into the matter. The Speaker has Joe look into things. On the surface it appears to be a drunken boating accident. But there things that don't add up. DeMarco looks further and is caught up in the web of an ambitious politician, a powerfully ambitious politician.

Joe and his friend Emma uncover the truth - a truth that can get them killed.

Recommended reading.

This Joe DeMarco Thriller is a fast paced read with the usual quirky characters and convoluted plot of a Mike Lawson Novel. I really enjoy Joe DeMarco. He has contacts that get him into trouble and others who help him get out of trouble. Joe is no super hero, guns blasting, Dirty Harry type. He uses his head and calls for assistance from well placed and influential friends when needed. This one had a surprise ending that I really liked. I will not reveal details, but a Presidential Candidate has ties to the underworld and tries to put Joe DeMarco out of commission. Joe needs lots of smarts and backup to turn the tables. Good Read!

I became a huge fan of Joe DeMarco with the first book in the series, The Inside Ring. To be more honest, I am a fan of Emma, his colleague in each novel. While DeMarco is good at handling normal problems while working for the Speaker of the House, things like backing down would be blackmailers or overzealous lobbyists, Emma, a "former" DIA agent, is the woman to turn to when the case gets really nasty, as several in the series have thus far. The assignment in this novel is even more deadly than the previous ones, which is saying something. The villian is incredibly sly and deceitful while being a politician in every sense. People who cross him die. Joe and Emma have crossed him. Mr. Lawson's writing is fast paced and captivating. There are no slow spots in his novels to bog down the reader - they might give a moment to catch your breath here or there but it is recommended that you inhale quickly.

I loved this book. I read it shortly after I saw Season 2 of "House of Cards" on Netflix, and while the story is completely different, the machinations of Congress are far too familiar in both. This book moves along at a brisk pace and Demarco keeps you guessing. I didn't know this was a series of books, got it as a Kindle Daily Deal, but I will definitely read more in this series. Sadly, the book does nothing to bolster any respect for Congress but then, in real life, Congresspeople do little to garner my respect. Anyway, this is a great book that combines politics with the mystery and thriller genre.

DeMarco has good instincts and follows them. He role the dice with his life and its intense. You will not be able to read just one book from the series, even though they could be great stand alones. One read = new addiction
Mike Lawson is one of my top 3 favorite political thriller/ mystery authors, he's a man who knows what he is doing when he writes. Joe Demarco is a character who stays with you
