House Divided

A Joe DeMarco Thriller
House Divided: A Joe DeMarco Thriller. Atlantic Monthly. Jul. 2011. c.320p. ISBN 9780802119780. $23. F
When the National Security Agency intercepts radio traffic recording the assassination of two Americans, the stage is set for a showdown with the Department of Defense. However, one of the victims was the distant cousin of Joe DeMarco, a fixer for the Speaker of the House, and Joe learns that the man had a secret that may have led to his murder. This is a serviceable entry (after the excellent House Justice) in an overall superior series, but some of the edge and humor are missing this time around.
