Publisher's Summary

The dazzling sequel to The Inside Ring finds Joe DeMarco, the Speaker of the House's all-purpose "fixer" in a battle of wits against a lethal female spy. When the Secretary of the Navy's nephew says he believes that two colleagues at a U.S. naval base may be committing fraud, his uncle is skeptical. Reluctant to launch an official investigation based on a relative's vague suspicions, the secretary asks House Speaker, John Mahoney, to send his troubleshooter, DeMarco, to check out the story. As DeMarco and his friend Emma, a retired CIA agent, began to investigate what they thought was a low-stakes government swindle, they come to the terrifying realization that an espionage ring has infiltrated the naval base.
The leader of the espionage cell is a woman with whom Emma has a history that goes back to the cold war. Their encounter destroyed the woman's once promising career and turned her into a ruthless operative who cares about only one thing: destroying Emma, the person responsible for her shame, dishonor, and shattered life. DeMarco has never been near a spy in his life, at least not that he knew of, and now he's dealing with a foreign agent who is more deadly than anyone he's ever encountered.


What the Critics Say

I want more

I just listened to both of Michael's books, 'The Inside Ring' and 'The Second Perimeter'. I want more. Good action, keeps interest level high, and the 2ns book (The Second Perimeter) is even better than the first.

very good,

I have been a member of Audible for about a year and have listened to most of the books that have been recommended to me in the past. Currently I go thought about 5-7 books a month and I love this service. But for the past few months I have run out of book and authors that I know and want to read so I have relaying on the recommendations for other members. I want to thank everyone that takes the time to write their views of the books they have listened to as this is a great help to me when selecting my next book.

Sorry I will now get to the review. I loved this book. Scott Brick is a great narrator and truly brings the books to life. This book started fast paced and kept it all the way through. I am excited to go back and listen to the first book.
