Advance Praise forHouse Odds
"House Oddsgives you a look at the sordid underbelly of Washington politics where you will meet crooked politicians, evil gangsters and violent fixers mixed into a clever, original, fast moving and unpredictable plot. Enjoy." -Phillip Margolin,New York Timesbestselling author ofSleight of Hand
"House Oddsheld my attention from start to finish. It has all the essential elements of a crackling good thriller: a great character (political fixer Joe DeMarco), a spellbinding plot, and clean crisp prose. After I read my first Joe DeMarco book, I wanted to read them all. You will, too." -William Bernhardt, author ofCapitol Conspiracy
"Lawson rivets inHouse Oddsthrowing Joe DeMarco - that engaging charmer you want to have your back - right into the rear corridors of Capitol Hill, the power deals, and yes, the Mob gets involved. Like Joe, we wonder, as he raises the question - who really are the bad guys?" "--Cara Black, author ofMurder at the Lanterne Rouge
Washington, D.C. fixer Joe DeMarco has been asked to handle a lot of difficult situations over the years for his boss, congressman John Mahoney. But nothing has ever been quite so politically sensitive, or has hit so close to home, as the task Mahoney hands DeMarco in "House Odds."
Mahoney s daughter has been arrested and charged with insider trading. An engineer with a high-flying technology firm, she allegedly placed a half-million dollar bet on one of the firm s clients. DeMarco s job is to clear her name and keep his boss clean. But how did she get her hands on so much money to invest in the first place? Before long, DeMarco uncovers far more about the case than meets the eye, and the risk to Mahoney is more than just a little political embarrassment.
