In House Rules, two foiled terrorist attacks and a law targeting Muslim Americans send Joe DeMarco on a dangerous mission among mobsters, meth dealers, and the Washington political elite. First there was the bomb meant for the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel; then a private plane headed straight for the White House is shot down. An atmosphere of fear and panic overruns the country, and when a senator proposes to run extensive background checks on all Muslims and deport any who aren’t citizens, his bill gains surprising traction. John Mahoney, the larger-than-life Speaker of the House, is not pleased. But Mahoney has a connection to one of the attackers, one he wants kept a secret. So he calls DeMarco, who attempts to get to the bottom of the attacks and to pacify his difficult yet charismatic boss in this riveting installment in the series.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“House Rules has it all: a lightning-paced plot, a quirky cast of players, and best of all, one of the most engaging heroes I’ve ever encountered. In Joe DeMarco, Lawson has created a charmingly likeable character whom I’ll happily follow for many books to come.” Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author
“Full of insider information, this novel reinforces Lawson’s place in the upper rank of Washington thriller specialists.” Publishers Weekly
“Lawson fleshes out his characters while developing a plausible and increasingly tense plot. Just enough uncertainty in the satisfying conclusion hints that another series entry is likely. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“A pleasantly relaxed thriller well suited to leftish political junkies.” Kirkus Reviews
“I was absolutely delighted to discover Mike Lawson. This smart political thriller offers readers both a wild ride and thought-provoking issues. In many ways, House Rules reminded me of the novels of the late Ross Thomas; this, from me, is high praise, indeed.” Nancy Pearl, award-winning author of Book Lust
“Mike Lawson’s The Inside Ring is one of the most assured first novels I’ve ever read. His next one, The Second Perimeter, continued in the voice of a master storyteller. His third, House Rules is, in my opinion, a knockout. Relaxed, slightly droll, yet in total command of a complicated plot, you have to believe this guy has been telling tales for a lot of years, but just recently started writing them down.” Bill Farley, Seattle Mystery Bookshop
