Product description

Review

Mike Lawson has a deservedly strong reputation for his robust, bemused tales of D.C. intrigue, and "House Odds" doesn t disappoint. "Seattle Times" What a pleasure to read a book by a writer who gets everything rightthe engaging protagonist, the fluid and often funny dialogue, the quick-paced and believable plot. . . . Grade: A. "Plain Dealer" (Cleveland) Outstanding. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Odds favor a good time for the reader as Joe DeMarco faces his eighth case: a looming insider trading scandal with potentially fatal consequences. . . . Funny lines, fiendishly complicated plotting, and swiftly and sharply etched characters make this installment one of the most enjoyable in the series." "Kirkus Reviews" Every [DeMarco book] is of high quality, not only for the excellent storytelling, but for the insights into Washington life and politics. If I were to compose a list of underrated authors I would put Mike Lawson at the top. George Easter, "Deadly Pleasures" ""House Odds" gives you a look at the sordid underbelly of Washington politics where you will meet crooked politicians, evil gangsters and violent fixers mixed into a clever, original, fast moving and unpredictable plot. Enjoy." Phillip Margolin, "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Sleight of Hand" ""House Odds" held my attention from start to finish. It has all the essential elements of a crackling good thriller: a great character (political fixer Joe DeMarco), a spellbinding plot, and clean crisp prose. After I read my first Joe DeMarco book, I wanted to read them all. You will, too." William Bernhardt, author of "Capitol Conspiracy" "Lawson rivets in "House Odds" throwing Joe DeMarco that engaging charmer you want to have your back right into the rear corridors of Capitol Hill, the power deals, and yes, the Mob gets involved. Like Joe, we wonder, as he raises the question who really are the bad guys?"
