This was my first Joe DeMarco novel and it surely won't be my last. Mike Lawson has a style of writing that grabs your mind, this intense thriller keeps you flipping the pages, with characters that seem too come flying off the pages. ( )

Joe DeMarco finally learns who killed his mob-enforcer father, then jeopardizes his job and his life trying to do something about it. Lots of flailing around.

This series has been coasting for a while now. I'm not giving up on it, but I don't eagerly await every new book, either. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802122531, Hardcover)

The ninth installment in Mike Lawson’s Washington, D.C. political thriller series launches readers back into Joe DeMarco’s past—to the murder of his father, which was never investigated, let alone solved.

DeMarco always knew that his father Gino had a shady job for a local mafioso, but he didn’t understand that Gino had been a hitman until he was murdered. Now, nearly twenty years later, one of Gino’s former mob associates is dying of lung cancer, and he wants to get something off his chest before retiring to his grave: the truth about Gino’s killer. The shocking information, and the powerful position the killer now occupies, sends DeMarco on a mission of revenge with terrible consequences. And after the secret being kept for so long, DeMarco has to rush to do something about it: the killer is on the brink of taking a job in Washington, D.C. that will leave him untouchable.

With his job, his morals, and his very life on the line, DeMarco must ask himself: How far will he go for revenge?
