"House Reckoning"

New from Atlantic Monthly Press: House Reckoning (Joe DeMarco Series #9) by Mike Lawson.

About the book, from the publisher:

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, worked for a violent Mafioso in New York, but he didn’t know 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 and wants to get something off his chest before retiring to the grave: the truth about Gino DeMarco’s killer.

DeMarco learns that the killer was not just another hood, but a supposedly upstanding citizen whose career has flourished in the intervening years. Now he’s on the brink of taking a job in Washington, D.C., that will leave him virtually untouchable. DeMarco must act quickly to avenge his father’s death. But how far is he willing to go? Is revenge worth his job—or even his life?

House Reckoning tells in full for the first time the story of DeMarco’s family and his start working for Congressman John Mahoney. It is a gripping must-read for political thriller fans.
