I can’t wait for the next Joe DeMarco book.
This is the 12th book that I’ve read from Mike Lawson, and I’ve absolutely loved every one of them. Back in 2005 I picked up his first book ‘Inside Ring’ just by chance, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. His books are always highly entertaining, and every story is quite unique. The main characters John Mahoney and Jo De Marco are both a bit floored and rough around the edges, but this is what makes them both so interesting. ‘House Witness’ has a great plot, and a very diverse range of characters, that really make this a very entertaining story. Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives John Mahoney hadn’t told anyone that he had a son out there that no one knew about, and that included his wife of many years. It may have been a secret, however now that his son was dead he needed someone to investigate his death. Luckily John had is go to man Jo De Marco working for him, and especially lucky since he has that uncanny knack for getting to the bottom of things. Mind you De Marco doesn’t always work in the parameters of the law, and that’s the reason he gets things done. However, this time he was up against someone that specialised in tampering with witnesses, and would go to great lengths to help get the guilty party from going to jail. You could easily lose yourself between the pages of this fabulous book for many enjoyable hours. Hands down this story is well worth a read.
