Joe DeMarco is a fictional character featured in a series of thrillers by American novelist Mike Lawson. Joe works as a Congressional investigator in Washington DC. Joe is an average guy who wants to do his best for the American people, but he also has a few unsavoury character traits – such as he likes to drink (he’s an alcoholic) and he has a lot of love to give (he cheats on his wife).

Lawson debuted his Joe DeMarco character in the novel The Inside Ring, published in 2005. The series is currently ongoing. Below is a list of Mike Lawson’s Joe DeMarco series in order of when the novels were originally published (which is also their chronological order):
