Praise for Mike Lawson and the Joe DeMarco series

"Lawson [is] a reliably excellent writer . . . As always, Lawson's plotting is ingenious and his characters memorable."--Adam Woog, Seattle Times, on House Rivals

"Joe DeMarco, 'fixer' for Speaker of the House John Fitzpatrick Mahoney, is shrewd, tough, discreet, and resourceful . . . Lawson creates multifaceted characters . . . [and] the pacing is relentless."--Booklist

"Mike Lawson shows every understanding of the skill required of a thriller writer to keep a reader fully engaged and utterly thrilled."--Guardian

"Lawson writes a mean thriller and has a sense of humor that hurts."--Independent (UK)

"Lawson has a true insider's insight about real-world spinelessness, venality, and corruption that have taken the place of moral courage and true leadership on Capitol Hill . . . a fine ear for dialogue . . . [and] a good eye for irony." --Washington Times

"Mike Lawson . . . should be a fixture on the bestseller lists, if not a household name . . . Lawson has a deceptively smooth, low-key style that is perfect for the stories he tells . . . Mike Lawson is the only writer I know who comes close to matching the stories of the great Ross Thomas, the finest thriller writer to ever roll a blank page into an Underwood." --Strand Magazine, on House Reckoning

"A great novel from a great author! . . . Equal parts funny, clever and cool, this book will make your heart race and your mind ponder." --Lisa Gardner, on House Divided

"A compelling story of vengeance. Lawson is a gifted master." --Rick Mofina, on House Reckoning
