Praise for House Revenge

A Seattle Times Bestseller

"Mike Lawson has a sure touch with the David and Goliath theme of this tough little thriller with its insights into Washington political savagery."--Washington Times

"Lawson delivers an explosive plot with a brilliant construction of events that add up to a swift, exciting novel. Encapsulating both hot-button issues and Lawson's darkly creative imagination, House Revenge is the political thriller at its finest. And with a self-contained story line, even series newbies can relish this highs-takes DeMarco adventure."--Shelf Awareness

"Originality, intelligence, and humor lift Lawson's excellent 11th Joe DeMarco thriller . . . DeMarco provides all the fun and action that Lawson's fans have come to expect."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lawson's DeMarco novels are often shrewdly prescient . . . Angry Americans will flock to House Revenge."--Booklist (starred review)

"[An] effervescent, wholly delicious revenge fantasy . . . about big money, big politics, and big crime . . . The perfect chaser for an evening spent watching a presidential debate."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Mike Lawson's Joe DeMarco Thrillers:

"Mike Lawson . . . should be a fixture on the bestseller lists, if not a household name."--Strand Magazine

"Seattle thriller writer Mike Lawson has quickly established himself as someone to watch. His work is a potent combination of high good humor, deft prose, and insider smarts."--Seattle Times

"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

"The nice thing about Mike Lawson's Washington thrillers is that nobody is high-minded. Certainly not John Fitzpatrick Mahoney, speaker of the House ('and God help the country') and as unscrupulous a politician as you'd hope to find outside a federal prison cell. Nor could you pin that high-and-holy tag on Mahoney's go-to guy, Joe DeMarco, who holes up in a subbasement office of the Capitol building and surfaces only when the speaker has some dirty business that needs to be done."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times

"[I] consider Mike Lawson my favorite political thriller writer (Flynn, Baldacci, and Meltzer will have to go to the back of the line)."--Deadly Pleasures

"I love Joe DeMarco. . . . These are wonderful. I think they're inventive, nicely detailed, just a treat to read."--Nancy Pearl

"Lawson writes with grit, humor, and precision."--Mark Greaney, New York Times bestselling author of Ballistic

"One of the most engaging heroes I've ever encountered. In Joe DeMarco, Mike Lawson has created a charmingly likeable character whom I'll happily follow for many books to come."--Tess Gerritsen, author of The Bone Garden

"[Lawson] has created a disturbingly real Washington D.C. and peopled it with eerily familiar characters. He writes with wit and verve and displays a shrewd understanding of bureaucratic irony."--John Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of Urge to Kill and The Night Caller

"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)
