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?

The Joe De Marco books have always been different from the norm and show a fascinating insight into American politics. This one was one of the most enjoyable showing De Marco as even more rebellious and irreverent than usual. I really enjoyed this.

I have enjoyed all the Joe DeMarco thrillers by Mike Lawson and this one was no exception. Good story line with enough twists to keep you turning the pages!
