House Divided is inspired and compelling, a strong addition to this celebrated series. When the National Security Agency is caught wiretapping US citizens without the proper warrants, a political scandal erupts, and the secret program comes to a screeching halt. But Dillon Crane, the NSA genius who spearheaded the most sophisticated eavesdropping operation in history, isn’t about to sit idly by while spineless politicians sleepwalk the country into another 9/11—and Crane cleverly moves his illegal eavesdropping program into the shadows. But operating in the shadows can cause complications. When the NSA illegally records what appears to be a rogue military group killing two American citizens, Crane can’t simply walk over to the Pentagon and ask what’s going on—and before long, the largest intelligence agency in the country is locked into a deadly battle with a four-star army general who is just as capable and just as committed as Dillon Crane. Caught in the middle of all this is Joe DeMarco. One of the civilians killed was his cousin, and all DeMarco is trying to do is bury the poor guy and settle his estate—but DeMarco soon finds himself being used as a sacrificial pawn in a lethal game between a master spy and a powerful general. Although a man with many flaws, DeMarco ultimately decides that he’s not going to be anyone’s pawn, no matter how powerful his opponents may be.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Excellent…Readers will enjoy watching the smart, funny DeMarco, who’s wise to the ways of Washington, as he extricates himself from one deadly threat after another.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The pacing is relentless, and Lawson’s speculations about NSA’s electronic spying capabilities are fascinating. House Divided is a great thriller; it also seems nearly plausible and, thus, is deeply sobering.” Booklist (starred review)
“The case moves at a nice clip, and the manner and methods of the war within the war on terror are fascinating.” Kirkus Reviews
“A great novel from a great author! Lawson goes for broke in this Machiavellian thriller, where Washington power brokers take on elite super spies with one rather perplexed Joe DeMarco trying to outwit—and outlast—the carnage. Equal parts funny, clever, and cool, this book will make your heart race and your mind ponder.” Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author
“Lawson’s House Divided is a nonstop thrill ride. The author has created a disturbingly real Washington, DC, and peopled it with eerily familiar characters. He writes with wit and verve and displays a shrewd understanding of bureaucratic irony. Thoroughly enjoyable. The political thriller of the year.” John Lutz, New York Times bestselling author
