When Joe DeMarco was a boy, he always knew his father, Gino, had a shadowy job, working for a violent Mafioso in New York. But he didn t know that his father had been a hit man until he was murdered. The crime was never solved, but twenty years later, one of Gino s former mob associates wants to get something off his chest before retiring to his grave: the truth about Gino DeMarco s killer. Only the alleged killer was not just another hood, but a supposedly upstanding citizen who is now on the brink of taking a job in Washington, D.C. that would leave him virtually untouchable. If DeMarco has any hope of finding out the truth and avenging his father s death, he will have to act quickly. But is revenge over a two-decades-old tragedy worth his job, and maybe even his life? "House Reckoning" tells DeMarco s personal story in full for the first time, from his upbringing in Queens to his complicated relationship with his father. Full of great characters and featuring a twisty plot that builds to a shocking conclusion, it is a must-read for fans and an excellent introduction to this fantastic series."
