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 right--the engaging protagonist, the fluid and often funny dialogue, the quick-paced and believable plot. . . . Grade: A."--Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

"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?"--Cara Black, author of Murder at the Lanterne Rouge
