Joe DeMarco #16
By Mike Lawson
A Riveting and Rousing Page Turner
Angie Moore is a twentysomething and newly working for DOJ Inspector General’s office conducting an investigation in Miami. She is found murdered in the Florida Everglades. Joe DeMarco, who works for the Speaker of the House, and Emma, a retired spy, are called in to investigate the murder. The two waste no time identifying the suspects--a pair of almost retired FBI agents named McIntyre and McGruder. As Joe and Emma investigate further and find crucial evidence, they realize these two were not working alone, and the case is much bigger than the murder of Angie Moore. Finding the other person involved, is a race against time.
ALLIGATOR ALLEY is a riveting and rousing page-turner. Author Mike Lawson has once again written a seamless and smartly structured story that is highly enjoyable. I have read every Joe DeMarco book and love the series. They keep getting better and better.
Joe DeMarco is a colorful character, and Emma is simply perfect. She keeps Joe in his place and is clearly a woman in charge. When Emma walks into a room, she is in command. Both of them move the story along famously.
Thanks to Netgalley and Grove Atlantic for an advance reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
