Publisher's Summary

Mike Lawson’s previous novels starring Joe DeMarco, fixed for the Speaker of the House, have earned him a loyal following from thriller aficionados and a place among the most talented and captivating thriller writers focusing on the dangerous games of our nation’s capital.
In House Secrets, DeMarco is sent to investigate the death of a reporter, the son of one of his boss’ old colleagues, even though it appears to be nothing more than an unfortunate accident. He soon learns that the reporter was on the trail of Senator Paul Morelli, a rising star considered a shoe-in for his party’s presidential nomination. Some politicians are lucky, and Morelli has been luckier than most, but his past has already been thoroughly scrutinized and he looks clean. But then, why is DeMarco being followed by a pair of rogue agents who freelance for the CIA?
Dirty secrets, beltway politics, and divided loyalties threaten as DeMarco’s investigation spirals dangerously out of control. Filled with surprising twists, a captivating plot, and excellent characters both old and new, House Secrets is Lawson’s best book yet.

Ok but not riveting in any way

I bit plodding and predictable. Not particularly exciting or suspenseful. The narrator did the best he could with the material.

Great story!

This book, as well as all the books in the series, is fantastic. The character development is outstanding and so is the plot. The humor is amazing! I have to say, I found myself chuckling throughout the book. I love the narration- Joe Barrett, you do a great job with all the characters, although I particularly like John Mahoney!
