The Second Perimeter book. I have now read all of the Joe DeMarco thrillers by Mike Lawson and cannot wait to read the new one, due out in October.

The Second Perimeter book. This one was a page-turner just like all of Lawson's others, and kept me guessing to the end. I love the fast pace that keeps me turning pages late into the night! Lawson's stories are (mostly) believable and have enough detail so that the reader knows that this is an author who knows what he is writing about.

Mike Lawson’s thrillers featuring Joe DeMarco, fixer for .

Mike Lawson’s thrillers featuring Joe DeMarco, fixer for John Fitzpatrick Mahoney, the hard-drinking, glad-handing, womanizing speaker of the House, have won him a dedicated following of readers and lots of critical praise. In The Second Perimeter, when the Secretary of the Navy’s nephew tells him that two colleagues at a . Naval base are committing fraud, he is skeptical.

He was sitting in his rental car, parked half a block from Mulherin’s house. He was pretty certain where Mulherin was going this evening. He had found out that Mulherin was a member of the Elks, and. tonight was the Elks’ weekly Texas hold’em poker tournament, which Mulherin never missed. Sure enough, at six forty-five, the front door of Mulherin’s cluttered house swung open and he appeared wearing a sport jacket, a dress shirt sans tie, gray slacks, and loafers. The guy was dressed so nicely that DeMarco wondered if he might be meeting an Elkette at his club.

The Second Novel is First Rate!!! By Thriftbooks. com User, September 29, 2008. I read the third novel in this series (House Rules) before I read the first two and my enjoyment of it, made me determined to find and read the earlier ones, which I have now done.

The dazzling sequel to The Inside Ring finds Joe DeMarco, the Speaker of the House’s all-purpose “fixer” in a battle of wits against a lethal female spy. When the Secretary of the Navy’s nephew says he believes that two colleagues at a U.S. naval base may be committing fraud, his uncle is skeptical. Reluctant to launch an official investigation based on a relative’s vague suspicions, the secretary asks House Speaker, John Mahoney, to send his troubleshooter, DeMarco, to check out the story. As DeMarco and his friend Emma, a retired DIA agent, began to investigate what they thought was a low-stakes government swindle, they come to the terrifying realization that an espionage ring has infiltrated the naval base. The leader of the espionage cell is a woman with whom Emma has a history that goes back to the cold war. Their encounter destroyed the woman’s once promising career and turned her into a ruthless operative who cares about only one thing: destroying Emma, the person responsible for her shame, dishonor, and shattered life. DeMarco has never been near a spy in his life—at least not that he knew of—and now he’s dealing with a foreign agent who is more deadly than anyone he’s ever encountered.
Reviews about The Second Perimeter (7):
Kipabi
Mike Lawson brings back Joe DeMarco, the son of a mob enforcer turned 'fixer' for the Speaker of the House. Joe has a friend, Emma, enigmatic with a past. Emma worked for DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and has skills and access to people who know how to do things just this side of the law. Emma is also older than Joe, retired and gay.

The Secretary of the Navy gets word from his sister that her son, a trainer at the Bremerton Naval Yard thinks something is not quite right with a contract awarded to assess the training of nuclear technicians on submarines. The Secretary thinks his nephew is 'dramatic' but doesn't want to ignore his sister and asks Joe to look into it. Emma goes along so she can accompany her love interest, a young, gorgeous cello player.

Bodies pile up, security is threatened and Joe and Emma come face to face with someone from her past - Li Mei. Emma burned Mei twenty years before.

The action criss crosses the country and there are plenty of scapegoats for the things that go wrong. Joe is still a regular guy, Emma is still fascinating and Li Mei is tragic.

Will continue to read this series ... you can't help but like Joe DeMarco.

I read the third novel in this series (House Rules) before I read the first two and my enjoyment of it, made me determined to find and read the earlier ones, which I have now done.

Mike Lawson has the combination of story telling, character development and attention to detail which should keep him writing Joe Demarco novels as long as he wants to.

Demarco is no Mitch Rapp. He is the son of a Mafia hit man who chose not to follow in his father's footsteps, however the connection made him difficult to employ as a lawyer after he graduated from law school.

Luckily, his Aunt Connie had a fling with the man who occupies the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives and Speaker Mahoney has a continuing soft spot for some of his old lady friends and agrees to hire Joe to work slightly off the books from an office in the basement of the Capitol as a trouble shooter for the speaker.

In that role, Mahoney is asked to check out a complaint concerning some people who have gotten a government contract to work at a submarine repair base in Bremerton, Washington which brings Mahoney into contact with a spy ring with many interesting and scary results.

A lot of that is detailed here by others, so suffice it to say that if you are looking for a book to take up a couple days of your time in a very entertaining way, you need to get acquainted with this author and these books. They are best read in the sequence they were written, although it is not critical.

This was my second Joe DeMarco book by Lawson. Like many others have stated, I read the book quickly on two planes, waiting for planes, and in hotel rooms. Lots going on in the book. I find the DeMarco character funny at times, e.g., the son of a mobster who doesnot carry a weapon yet is tasked by the U.S. Speaker of the House to "carry out behind the scenes" activities by the Speaker where a weapon would normally help out a lot. I'll read more by Lawson.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book continues the relationship between Speaker Mahoney, DeMarco and Emma. The Speaker truly reminded me of how current day politics are handled...you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. DeMarco needs to take shooting lessons. He gets himself into more scrapes than anyone I know. Maybe he'll find love in next book. Emma is a really cool person. If I had to describe her, I'd say she was a GI Barbie.

DeMarco is not Harry Bosch or the Lincoln Lawyer or anywhere in between, but these books are a good read. I have read the first two books and I don't think that his character is well defined. A mobster's kid, but not a mobster. A lawyer, but not a lawyer. He performs tasks for Mahoney, but mostly he seems to be propelled by the events rather than influencing their direction.

The style of these Joe DeMarco books is somewhat formulaic, but the plot line & the characters are fresh and engaging. I am not a fan of the 'cast of thousands' book in general; however, it works here. Can't do much better than that. Also, we learn a little more about who Joe is, how he got here, and kind of friend he is. It's an enjoyable ride.

Great book. I enjoy all the Joe DeMarco books and usually read them in a day or two because I can't put them down. Having recently traveled in the area of the setting of the book, I could visualize the scene and action. I thought the torture scene was a little graphic Keep the books coming for the kindle..
Great characters and very very interesting plot.I am now on my forth book in the series and I probably will read the next one when I'm done. another great thing is you do not need to read all of the books in order. each now will stands alone but it does refer back to previous works a little bit so you understand it is a progression. quite an entertaining read.
