When an American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, the CIA knows all about it, thanks to a spy in Tehran. But when the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist, the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and executed. The director of the CIA isn’t about to let the callous sacrifice of his valuable spy go unpunished. Joe DeMarco’s boss, Speaker of the House John Fitzpatrick Mahoney, has his own reasons to get to the bottom of the leak. He once had a fling with the journalist, and now that she’s in jail for refusing to reveal her source, she is threatening to tell all unless he helps get her out. DeMarco and the CIA aren’t the only ones looking for the source of the leak, either. Someone else wants to avenge the spy’s death, and is tailing DeMarco, hoping he’ll lead him to his prey. This latest Joe DeMarco thriller is classic Mike Lawson, featuring fascinating characters, inside-the-beltway intrigue, and a gripping plot packed with surprises.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A lightning-paced Washington conspiracy thriller filled with spies and traitors and a hero you’ll cheer for…irresistible.” Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author
“Engaging…The always present push and pull between the political machinations of alcoholic, egotistical Mahoney and DeMarco’s basic decency raises the ethical stakes.” Publishers Weekly
“Lawson has honed his skill to write a perfect political thriller—fast-moving, cynical, but ultimately moral.” Library Journal book review
“Lawson’s fifth entry in this series, following the Library Journal Best Book of 2009 House Secrets, also available from Blackstone Audio and read by Audie Award nominee Joe Barrett, has all the elements that audiences have come to expect from the author: a compelling cast of characters, a gripping story line, exciting plot twists, insightful details about governmental organizations, and a likable hero. A strong addition to the series; recommended.” Library Journal audio review
“Lawson takes a big step up…with a devilishly intricate, whirlwind tale, wittily told, that delivers a sobering message.” Kirkus Reviews
