Seattle thriller writer Mike Lawson has quickly established himself as someone to watch. 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. has created a disturbingly real Washington . 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.

The Second Perimeter book. Lawson writes another great novel, using a great mix of characters, including Joe DeMarco, to bring this political thriller to life. I enjoyed the underlying themes of the book and it ran ong quite well, at least until the last quarter, where I found that things starte dragging, through a tangential storyline. I have come to like DeMarco and will keep reading the books, but hope that Lawson injects more thriller and politics into the next in the series.

Mike Lawson brings back Joe DeMarco, the son of a mob enforcer turned 'fixer' for the Speaker of the House. Joe has a friend, Emma, enigmatic with a past. Emma worked for DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and has skills and access to people who know how to do things just this side of the law. Emma is also older than Joe, retired and gay.

The Secretary of the Navy gets word from his sister that her son, a trainer at the Bremerton Naval Yard thinks something is not quite right with a contract awarded to assess the training of nuclear technicians on submarines. The Secretary thinks his nephew is 'dramatic' but doesn't want to ignore his sister and asks Joe to look into it. Emma goes along so she can accompany her love interest, a young, gorgeous cello player.

Bodies pile up, security is threatened and Joe and Emma come face to face with someone from her past - Li Mei. Emma burned Mei twenty years before.

The action criss crosses the country and there are plenty of scapegoats for the things that go wrong. Joe is still a regular guy, Emma is still fascinating and Li Mei is tragic.

Will continue to read this series ... you can't help but like Joe DeMarco.

I read the third novel in this series (House Rules) before I read the first two and my enjoyment of it, made me determined to find and read the earlier ones, which I have now done.

Mike Lawson has the combination of story telling, character development and attention to detail which should keep him writing Joe Demarco novels as long as he wants to.

Demarco is no Mitch Rapp. He is the son of a Mafia hit man who chose not to follow in his father's footsteps, however the connection made him difficult to employ as a lawyer after he graduated from law school.

Luckily, his Aunt Connie had a fling with the man who occupies the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives and Speaker Mahoney has a continuing soft spot for some of his old lady friends and agrees to hire Joe to work slightly off the books from an office in the basement of the Capitol as a trouble shooter for the speaker.

In that role, Mahoney is asked to check out a complaint concerning some people who have gotten a government contract to work at a submarine repair base in Bremerton, Washington which brings Mahoney into contact with a spy ring with many interesting and scary results.

A lot of that is detailed here by others, so suffice it to say that if you are looking for a book to take up a couple days of your time in a very entertaining way, you need to get acquainted with this author and these books. They are best read in the sequence they were written, although it is not critical.

This was my second Joe DeMarco book by Lawson. Like many others have stated, I read the book quickly on two planes, waiting for planes, and in hotel rooms. Lots going on in the book. I find the DeMarco character funny at times, e.g., the son of a mobster who doesnot carry a weapon yet is tasked by the U.S. Speaker of the House to "carry out behind the scenes" activities by the Speaker where a weapon would normally help out a lot. I'll read more by Lawson.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book continues the relationship between Speaker Mahoney, DeMarco and Emma. The Speaker truly reminded me of how current day politics are handled...you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. DeMarco needs to take shooting lessons. He gets himself into more scrapes than anyone I know. Maybe he'll find love in next book. Emma is a really cool person. If I had to describe her, I'd say she was a GI Barbie.

DeMarco is not Harry Bosch or the Lincoln Lawyer or anywhere in between, but these books are a good read. I have read the first two books and I don't think that his character is well defined. A mobster's kid, but not a mobster. A lawyer, but not a lawyer. He performs tasks for Mahoney, but mostly he seems to be propelled by the events rather than influencing their direction.

The style of these Joe DeMarco books is somewhat formulaic, but the plot line & the characters are fresh and engaging. I am not a fan of the 'cast of thousands' book in general; however, it works here. Can't do much better than that. Also, we learn a little more about who Joe is, how he got here, and kind of friend he is. It's an enjoyable ride.

Great book. I enjoy all the Joe DeMarco books and usually read them in a day or two because I can't put them down. Having recently traveled in the area of the setting of the book, I could visualize the scene and action. I thought the torture scene was a little graphic Keep the books coming for the kindle..
Great characters and very very interesting plot.I am now on my forth book in the series and I probably will read the next one when I'm done. another great thing is you do not need to read all of the books in order. each now will stands alone but it does refer back to previous works a little bit so you understand it is a progression. quite an entertaining read.
