Publisher's Summary

In the 11th novel in Mike Lawson's best-selling series, Joe DeMarco helps an elderly woman threatened by a shady real estate developer, then seeks revenge.

In House Revenge, congressional fixer Joe DeMarco is dispatched to Congressman John Mahoney's hometown of Boston. Mahoney wants him to help Elinore Dobbs, an elderly woman fighting against a real estate developer intent on tearing down her apartment building for a massive new development. Mahoney is in it just for the free press until Sean Callahan, the developer, disrespects him, and Elinore suffers a horrible "accident", likely at the hands of two thugs on Callahan's payroll. Now Mahoney and DeMarco are out for revenge. DeMarco tries to dig up dirt through Callahan's former mentor, along with one of his ex-wives. But when DeMarco gets a tip on the likely illegal source of some of Callahan's financing, the investigation turns deadly.

A fast-paced adventure into the cutthroat world behind the wrecking ball, House Revenge is another gripping tale of collusion and corruption from a beloved political thriller writer.

Best of the DeMarco series, fun

Lawson has really hit his stride with this light fun thriller. The characters, old and new, are interesting and likable. Joe Barrett's narration brings them to life. At just over 7 hours this novel keeps a nice pace without a lot of fluff. Kudos to Lawson for not forcing the novel into an 11 to 14 hour format like so many other contemporaries are doing. Real good entertainment.

Emotional Range of Cork

I am listening out of order as I like when John Mahoney is featured a bit more. The opening is laugh your socks off by the Congressman!
Joe Barrett has out done himself on this one. Do not miss Brian Heigs Private Sector for more of this same style of wit and humor with suspense as a back story.
The publisher summery is spot on and this adventure shows that when tempers and DISRESPECTFUl actions take place it can bring down kingdoms.
Reviewer Shelly recommends the series in order as the characters build, and I tend to agree with her as this is book 11 and great.
I do use the 1.25x speed to match the author intentions.
