Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A great read with a totally unexpected twist, it grabs from the start with the attempted assassination of the US President and the killing of his best friend and one of the ‘inside ring’ – his bodyguard. The ensuing investigation takes us to the swamp lands of the Deep South and a nest of illegal activities ruled over by a self ‘crowned’ king of the area, a very nasty character. The pace of this book is truly great, I couldn’t put it down. It leaps from one crisis to another, from one corrupt official to the next and to a revelation involving the inner ring and skulduggery in high places. Nail-biting stuff.

Similar this month: Vince Flynn.
Comparison: Lee Child, John Grisham, David Baldacci.

Synopsis

The Inside Ring by Mike Lawson

Joe De Marco is running out of time.

Someone has made an attempt on the president’s life, but the wrong man is dead. How could this happen when the president and those nearest to him are protected by a group of men known as The Inside Ring? Is there is a chink in the armour? A break in the circle? Is someone not quite what they seem?

Joe's search for the answers takes him from the corridors of power to the swamps of the southern states, where one lie will lead to another until finally the shocking truth emerges in an orgy of violence.

Reviews

‘This assured first novel shows Michael Lawson to be a talented storyteller, and Demarco makes a likeable hero as he follows an intricate trail through some typically murky American politics.’ Telegraph

‘Mike Lawson shows every understanding of the skills required of a thriller writer to keep a reader fully engaged and utterly thrilled.’ Guardian

‘Mike Lawson writes a mean thriller and has a sense of humour that hurts. I love this one.’ Independent on Sunday
