House Revenge

(2016)
(Book 11 in the Joe De Marco series)
A novel by

 
 
A Seattle Times bestseller and "[an] effervescent, wholly delicious revenge fantasy . . . about big money, big politics, and big crime" (Kirkus Reviews).

Congressional fixer Joe DeMarco is dispatched to his boss 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 even worse, 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, and one of his ex-wives. But it's only when DeMarco gets a tip on the likely illegal source of some of Callahan's financing that things get 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.

"Originality, intelligence, and humor lift Lawson's excellent 11th Joe DeMarco thriller . . . DeMarco provides all the fun and action that Lawson's fans have come to expect." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lawson's DeMarco novels are often shrewdly prescient . . . Angry Americans will flock to House Revenge." - Booklist (starred review)
