and every one of Lawson's book extremely entertaining with just the right amount of Washington insight, humor,
and just good old fashioned suspense and action. Can't believe that I've never heard of him berfore. With so
little info about the author, I suspect that the books are the work of someone with a name I'd recognize Whatever,
I've found all of his books a great read and he's now right up there with my favorite legal thrillers. The plots
move right along. The characters are interesting. I'm glad I found this author whoever he is.
An American spying in Iran is killed, brutally. The killing is the result of leaked intelligence to a reporter. When the reporter is imprisoned because she won't reveal her source she attempts to extort Mahoney for a prior affair. Mahoney asks DeMarco to find a way to get her out of jail without exposing the Speaker and if he can find out who did leaked the info, all the better.
House Divided is a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Everyone is lying, everyone thinks they are lying for the greater good. The bodies start piling up and DeMarco knows some people don't care who gets killed. Eventually he is paired with a CIA agent that he is attracted to ... but her boss and the agency's tactics are hard to swallow.
Page turner that will keep you up late. Highly recommend
House Justice was an easy-reading page-turner with a great plot with lots of underhanded CIA shenanigans, a dollop of sexual activity, and some great scenes of violence, one of which was so funny I laughed out loud while the main character practically wet his pants!
I highly recommend all the books by Mike Lawson to this point, and newcomers can read this novel without feeling like they have to read the previous five thrillers.
The most sympathetic person in "House Justice" is Mahata Javadi, a spy for the CIA who has sacrificed her youth to gather intelligence in Iran for six years. When she receives a message that she should run for her life, she fears that it may be too late. Lawson makes us sympathize with Mahata; we hope that this courageous young woman will find a way to elude her pursuers.
The rest of the large cast in "House Justice" consists, for the most part, of obnoxious, selfish, ruthless, and violent individuals. This is one of the weakest books in the series. The novel is almost entirely plot-driven; the characters are colorful but thinly drawn; so many people are executed that the bloodshed quickly loses its impact; Joe, who is likeable enough, is ineffectual and beleaguered. For a thriller to work, it is not enough to place men and women in peril. The author must create characters and situations that grip us and generate suspense. Somehow, Lawson never quite pulls this off.Read more ›
