Description
In his thrillers starring Joe DeMarco, Mike Lawson has made a name for himself as one of the most entertaining and insightful writers focusing on the dirty games played in our nation&;s capital. In House Justice, an American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, and the CIA knows all about it thanks to a spy in Tehran. But the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist and the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and executed.The director of the CIA isn&;t about to let the callous sacrifice of his valuable spy go unpunished. DeMarco&;s boss, Speaker of the House John Fitzpatrick Mahoney has his own reasons to get to the bottom of the leak: he once had a fling with the journalist, and now that she&;s in jail for refusing to reveal her source, she is threatening to tell all unless he helps get her out.DeMarco and the CIA aren&;t the only ones looking for the source of the leak. Someone else wants to avenge the spy&;s death, and is tailing DeMarco hoping he&;ll lead him to his prey. House Justice is classic Mike Lawson— fascinating characters, inside-the-beltway intrigue, and a gripping plot packed with surprises.
