Praise for House Witness

"One of the best in a superior series . . . I've read all twelve and consider this series to be among the top ten mystery series being published today."--Deadly Pleasures, Rating: A

"Each of Lawson's DeMarco novels have been first-rate, but House Witness may be the best yet. DeMarco's investigation and the machinations of the witness tamperers are skillfully detailed and thoroughly involving, but the love affair between two of the criminals is an unexpected bonus. Readers will once again find themselves comparing Lawson to the late, great Ross Thomas."--Booklist (starred review)

"Winning . . . . Readers will enjoy watching the case unravel and . . . the action builds to a satisfying resolution."--Publishers Weekly

"Veteran fixer Joe DeMarco, who's never met a problem he couldn't solve by hook or by crook, goes up against a criminal as canny and resourceful as he is . . . The resulting game of cat and cat . . . is irresistible . . . The devil is in the details, and Lawson's details are unfailingly devilish, right down to the very last twist. A perfect candidate for in-flight entertainment."--Kirkus Reviews

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

"What a pleasure to read a book by a writer who gets everything right--the engaging protagonist, the fluid and often funny dialogue, the quick-paced and believable plot . . . Grade: A."--Cleveland Plain Dealer, on House Odds

"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 what-happens-next, edge-of-your-seat thriller, told with the author's clear prose and storytelling skills . . . [Lawson's] consistent excellence needs to be more universally acknowledged."--Deadly Pleasures, on House Blood

"If you've been reading and enjoying Block, Crais, Child, Pelecanos, Winslow, et al, you should also be reading Mike Lawson . . . Mike Lawson is a very fine writer. His plots are devious and intriguing, and his characters are well developed."--JB Dickey, Seattle Mystery Bookshop, on House Odds

"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
