Washington insider Joe DeMarco returns in an electrifying thriller that will grab you with its “clever, original, fast-moving, and unpredictable plot” (Phillip Margolin, New York Times–bestselling author).
Political fixer Joe DeMarco has handled plenty of difficult situations for his boss, congressman John Mahoney. But nothing has been so politically sensitive, or hit so close to home, as his current assignment.
Mahoney’s daughter has been arrested for insider trading. An engineer with a high-flying tech 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’s name clean in the process.
But DeMarco discovers that Mahoney’s daughter has gotten mixed up with some very wealthy and dangerous criminals who used her to make a quick fortune. And they aren’t about to let DeMarco get in their way.
Author Mike Lawson delivers a page-turning mystery full of “funny lines, fiendishly complicated plotting, and swiftly and sharply etched characters” that “make this installment one of the most enjoyable in the series” (Kirkus Reviews).
