Description
Washington, D.C., 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 so politically sensitive, or hit so close to home, as the task Mahoney hands DeMarco in this seventh book in the series, following House Blood. Mahoney's daughter, an engineer with a high-flying technology firm, has been arrested and charged with insider trading. She allegedly placed a half-million dollar bet on the fortunes of one of the firm's clients. But how did she get her hands on so much money to invest in the first place? Before long, DeMarco uncovers far more about the case than meets the eye, and the risk to Mahoney is more than just a little political embarrassment.

"In short order, DeMarco winds up in a bubbling cauldron of crime, political knavery, and ne'er-do-wells, including a Philly mobster, his Atlantic City casino manager, their thugs, a crazy Manhattan financial wheeler-dealer, and two former college football teammates. Hovering over it all is the never-ending guerrilla war that is partisan politics in a gridlocked House of Representatives, a conflict less popular with citizens than head lice. Lawson has written another fine installment in his DeMarco series, filled with vividly drawn characters, a plot with more bends than the Mississippi River, a brisk pace, and a fine sense of inside-the-Beltway verisimilitude."Booklist
