In "House Revenge," Congressional fixer Joe DeMarco is dispatched to his boss Congressman John Mahoney s hometown of Boston. Mahoney wants him to help Elinore Dobbs, an elderly woman fighting against a real estate developer intent on tearing down her apartment building for a massive new development. Mahoney is just in it for the free press until Sean Callahan, the developer, disrespects him and even worse, Elinore suffers a horrible accident, likely at the hands of two thugs on Callahan s payroll. Now Mahoney and DeMarco are out for revenge. DeMarco tries to dig up dirt through Callahan s former mentor, and one of his ex-wives. But it s only when DeMarco gets a tip on the likely illegal source of some of Callahan s financing that things get deadly.
