In the eleventh novel in Mike Lawson’s bestselling series, Joe DeMarco helps an elderly woman threatened by a shady real estate developer, then seeks revenge. In House Revenge, congressional fixer Joe DeMarco is dispatched to congressman John Mahoney’s hometown of Boston. Mahoney wants him to help Elinore Dobbs, an elderly woman fighting against a real estate developer intent on tearing down her apartment building for a massive new development. Mahoney is just in it for the free press until Sean Callahan, the developer, disrespects him, and Elinore suffers a horrible “accident,” likely at the hands of two thugs on Callahan’s payroll. Now Mahoney and DeMarco are out for revenge. DeMarco tries to dig up dirt through Callahan’s former mentor, along with one of his ex-wives. But when DeMarco gets a tip on the likely illegal source of some of Callahan’s financing, the investigation turns deadly. A fast-paced adventure into the cutthroat world behind the wrecking ball, House Revenge is another gripping tale of collusion and corruption from a beloved political thriller writer.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Originality, intelligence, and humor lift Lawson’s excellent eleventh Joe DeMarco thriller…As DeMarco outthinks and outfights the various vicious killers and proves his worth to Mahoney once again, he provides all the fun and action that Lawson’s fans have come to expect.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“In this fraught political season, America is bruised and angry, and Lawson’s DeMarco novels are often shrewdly prescient. Mahoney remains a ‘selfish, corrupt son of a bitch’ who differs from the Philly mobsters only by belonging to a ‘different gang’; and the real-estate developer is positively Trumpian in his arrogance and self-importance. Angry Americans will flock to House Revenge.” Booklist (starred review)
“A sour, effervescent, wholly delicious revenge fantasy so cynical about big money, big politics, and big crime that each new development carries a charge of amused resignation. The perfect chaser for an evening spent watching a presidential debate.” Kirkus Reviews
