The Inside Ring is the first novel in Mike Lawson's critically acclaimed series of political thriller starring Joe DeMarco, fixer for the Speaker of the House. It opens with an assassination attempt on the president. He is only wounded, but his best friend and a Secret Service Agent are killed. It turns out that the attack wasn't without warning. General Andrew Banks, the Secretary of Homeland Security, received a note that the president was in danger, and even more alarming, that Secret Service agents guarding the president had been compromised. General Banks is reluctant to tell the FBI about the note, partly for self-serving political reasons, and partly because he doesn't want to damage the Secret Service's reputation based on something that might very well be a hoax. So he requests help from his friend, Speaker Mahoney, and Mahoney assigns his man DeMarco to determine if the Secret Service was really involved. Moving at a breakneck pace, and packed with plenty of humor and suspense, The Inside Ring is a must-read for fans of political thrillers.
The detail was good but the climax and ending we're not has detailed a d action or action oriented as it could have been.
Would not recommend it to hardcore conspiracy friends. Not worth the $5 paid for it.
Where's the movie!!!
I'm not an avid reader, but when I started this book, I couldn't put it down. The simplicity and imagery Mr Lawson uses to bring the story to life makes me begging and wondering..... Is Demarco the next James Bond?
