"First-rate . . . Lawson's series is the closest thing on the market today to the witty political thrillers of the late, great Ross Thomas." - BooklistAuthor of House Witness, 2019 Edgar Award Finalist for Best Novel

As the fixer for Congressman John Mahoney in Washington, DC, Joe DeMarco has had to bend and break the law more than a few times. But when Representative Lyle Canton, House Majority Whip, is found shot dead in his office in the US Capitol and DeMarco is arrested for the murder, DeMarco knows he's been framed. Locked up in Alexandria awaiting trial, he calls on his enigmatic friend Emma, an ex-DIA agent, to search for the true killer.

Emma's investigation leads her to a ruthless and competitive CEO who had a motive for killing Canton, related to a personal connection from long ago. But the case the F.B.I. has built against DeMarco is airtight, and not a single piece of evidence points to the CEO. Using her cunning and her DC connections, Emma sets out to prove that the powerful businessman has been using some fixers of his own.

Featuring crimes of passion, corporate corruption, and partisan feuds, House Arrest is the latest fast-paced read from "a reliably excellent writer" (The Seattle Times).

"A great author." - Lisa Gardner
