The Second Perimeter (Mass Market Paperbound)
When the Secretary of the Navy’s nephew tells him that two colleagues at a naval base are committing fraud, he is skeptical and reluctant to start an official investigation. So he asks Speaker of the House John Mahoney to send his fixer, Joe DeMarco, to check out the story. DeMarco and his friend Emma, a semi-retired intelligence agent, soon realize that what they thought was a low-stakes government swindle is something far more terrifying. Soon they’re mixed up in a deadly conflict with Chinese spies, and not only is Emma’s life in danger, but Mahoney’s is as well.
Praise for The Second Perimeter
Spies, former spies, and criminal operatives entangled in a deadly and suspenseful war of attack and reprisal. What could be more entertaining?” Thomas Perry
Proves that Lawson’s fine debut was no fluke. While the author’s prose is highly readable and his plot fast-paced, it’s the character of DeMarco that separates this new series from the herd.”Publishers Weekly
Lawson again ratchets up the suspense and takes DeMarco on a wild ride.”The Oregonian
At once a solid thriller and a revealing look behind the scenes of American politics.” Booklist
