Read House Witness (Joe DeMarco, #12) Online Free - In House Witness, the twelfth novel in the Joe DeMarco series, Mike Lawson puts his likable protagonist on the trail of a different kind of fixer--one whose job is to influence, and sometimes disappear, witnesses in seemingly airtight criminal cases. Minority Leader of the House and DeMarco's long-time employer John Mahoney has kept more than one secret from his wife over the years, but none so explosive as this: He has a son, and that son has just been shot dead in a bar in Manhattan. Mahoney immediately dispatches DeMarco to New York to assist prosecutor Justine Porter, but with five bystanders willing to testify against the killer--rich-boy Toby Rosenthal--the case seems like a slam-dunk. That is, until Porter begins to suspect that someone is interfering with those witnesses, and that this may be connected to a pattern of cases across the country. Is there someone who is getting witnesses out of the way when the fate of a wealthy defendant is on the line?
With the help of Porter's intern, as outrageously smart as she is young, DeMarco becomes determined to follow that question through to its violent resolution in what turns out to be this series' most unexpected plot yet.

This is the 12th book that I’ve read from Mike Lawson, and I’ve absolutely loved every one of them. Back in 2005 I picked up his first book ‘Inside Ring’ just by chance, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. His books are always highly entertaining, and every story is quite uni...

House Witness is a fast-paced “legal thriller” that opens with Washington D.C. power broker intrigue and a Bar room murder and an initial police investigation right out of a Law and Order episode. But, that’s all a preview for the heart of the matter which is to turn the entire concept of a legal...

Mike Lawson's series about Joe DeMarco, behind-the-scenes fixer on Capitol Hill, is a really fun and interesting read. It is also a quite unusual way to use a main protagonist as DeMarco because in the first half of this - the eleventh - book, DeMarco is hardly mentioned at all; instead, Lawson i...
