Joe DeMarco is tasked with finding the source who leaked confidential information to an ambitious journalist, and soon discovers an assassin is searching for the same source.
Like the best James Bond movies, Mike Lawson populates his contemporary spy novel, HOUSE JUSTICE, with a dense cast of witty and notable characters, almost as numerable as the possible conspiracies that lurk in every dark corner. Each one, whether a major or minor player, seems wrought with care and intelligence, which, together with the tight plotting, makes this thriller a stand-out. When Speaker of the House John Fitzpatrick Mahoney finds out that a journalist he had an affair with nearly two decades ago has been put in jail for involvement in the outing of a CIA spy, he immediately contacts Joe DeMarco. DeMarco needs to quickly and quietly figure out who was the journalist's source of information (the CIA believes there was a leak from within congress). Easier said than done--it soon becomes apparent that FBI agents, spies, Russian mobsters, eccentric millionaires, greedy politicians, and ruthless assassins are all mixed up in this Byzantine affair.
