Publisher's Summary

Washington fixer Joe DeMarco has been asked to handle a lot of difficult situations over the years for his boss, Congressman John Mahoney. But nothing has ever been quite so politically sensitive, or has hit so close to home, as the task Mahoney hands DeMarco in House Odds, the latest novel from critically acclaimed thriller writer Mike Lawson.
Mahoney’s daughter, Molly, has been arrested and charged with insider trading. An engineer with a high-flying technology firm, she allegedly placed a half-million-dollar bet on one of the firm’s clients. DeMarco’s job is to clear Molly’s name and keep his boss clean. But how did Molly get her hands on so much money to invest in the first place? Before long, DeMarco discovers that there’s far more to Molly’s case than meets the eye, and the risk to Mahoney is more than just a little political embarrassment. Featuring an extensive cast of mobsters and politicians, House Odds is a gripping tale of high-stakes scheming from one of today’s best political thriller writers.

DeMarco and Friends Continue to Evolve

In a time when many traditional mystery and suspense protagonists are running out of steam, author Mike Lawson continues to keep Joe DeMarco and his supporting cast fresh. Unlike the superman-like protagonists in other series, the self-deprecating and often vulnerable Joe DeMarco gives readers believable doses of bravery and good judgement. Supporting characters like former Speaker Mahoney, retired spook Emma and others continue to surprise with additional character complexities.

Even more important, Lawson know how to "spin a good yarn". House Odds has a really good plot with twists and turns that will keep you interested until the end. Also important in any good audiobook, Joe Barrett delivers a really solid performance.

If you like the political thriller genre, don't miss the chance to give this audiobook "a listen".
