The ninth installment in Mike Lawson’s Washington, DC, political thriller series takes listeners 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 hit man 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. Now that the secret has been kept for so long, DeMarco has to rush to do something about it because the killer is on the brink of taking a job in Washington, DC, 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “In Lawson’s enjoyable ninth Joe DeMarco thriller the Congressional fix-it man steps out of the Washington, DC, political mud to focus on a personal quest: tracking down the man who murdered his father decades ago…A well-balanced plot reveals the intriguing backstory of the likable DeMarco, who knows that handling life’s problems is often a matter of compromise.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • House Reckoning is a fine thriller with a tense, twisting plot and a sociopathic villain worthy of a seat in the House.”


  • “Now that he’s tangled with every kind of Beltway lowlife imaginable fixer Joe DeMarco reaches over the miles and years to go after the man who killed his father…Fast, assured and as refreshingly unsentimental as Joe himself.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A compelling story of vengeance. Lawson is a gifted master.”

    Rick Mofina, bestselling author of Whirlwind
