Title: House standoff :
Remainder of title: a Joe DeMarco thriller /
Summary, etc. note: "The fifteenth novel in Mike Lawson's acclaimed series follows Joe DeMarco to Wyoming, scene of an armed standoff between a defiant cattle rancher and federal agents. But DeMarco doesn't care about the standoff; this mission is personal for him. When someone close to him is shot dead in a roadside motel in a small town in Wyoming, DeMarco shirks his responsibilities as the Speaker of the House's fixer to make sure the authorities are doing everything that can be done to catch the killer. He soon realizes that the rural area is dominated by Hiram Bunt, a wealthy rancher who is willing to take on the federal government at gunpoint and seems to have a number of politicians under his thumb. But Bunt is not the only one in the way. DeMarco also learns that his friend-a woman he was once in love with-had unearthed a number of explosive secrets during her time in Wyoming, and that the deputy in charge of the investigation may be ignoring several leads to preserve a secret of his own. Surrounded by people willing to kill to maintain the status quo, DeMarco launches his own investigation into a growing list of intertwining suspects. And being DeMarco, he concludes that breaking the law to uncover the truth is the best way to ensure that justice is done. Gripping and genuinely unpredictable to the very end"--
