Overview

The Second Perimeter (Joe DeMarco Series #2) by Mike Lawson


When the Secretary of the Navy’s nephew tells him that two colleagues at a naval base are committing fraud, he is skeptical and reluctant to start an official investigation. So he asks Speaker of the House John Mahoney to send his fixer, Joe DeMarco, to check out the story. DeMarco and his friend Emma, a semi-retired intelligence agent, soon realize that what they thought was a low-stakes government swindle is something far more terrifying. Soon they’re mixed up in a deadly conflict with Chinese spies, and not only is Emma’s life in danger, but Mahoney’s is as well.

Praise for The Second Perimeter

“Spies, former spies, and criminal operatives entangled in a deadly and suspenseful war of attack and reprisal. What could be more entertaining?” –Thomas Perry

“Proves that Lawson’s fine debut was no fluke. While the author’s prose is highly readable and his plot fast-paced, it’s the character of DeMarco… that separates this new series from the herd.”—Publishers Weekly

“Lawson again ratchets up the suspense and takes DeMarco on a wild ride.”—The Oregonian

“At once a solid thriller and a revealing look behind the scenes of American politics.” –Booklist

I enjoyed the first book, it keep me turning the page, but second Perimeter went so beyond just keeping me interested. Maybe because I was already involved in the characters, maybe the writing was just better, not sure but here's hoping that book three keeps getting better.

This was a fun book to read. Good characters and conflicts. Very suspenseful. For light reading and escaping into excitement, it can't be beaten.

These are just well written and fun to read. They kind of remind me of the old Spencer for Hire books. I love his descriptions of people and his humor. I also love his realness and flaws makes the book that much more enjoyable.
