With a strict set of criteria, she evaluates every request and chooses only a few. No more than one job per country, per year. She will only step in if it’s clear that justice will not be served any other way. Her jobs are completed with skill and precision, and never result in inquiry or police investigation. The Fixer is invisible—and quite deadly. . . .
In the office of a clinical psychologist in Olympia, Washington, a beautiful young woman is in terrible emotional pain. She puts up walls, tells lies, and seems to speak in riddles, but the doctor is determined to help her heal, despite the fact that she claims to have hurt many people. As their sessions escalate, the psychologist feels compelled to reach out to the police . . . but it might be too late.
In Seattle, a detective gets a call from his son. A dedicated journalist, he wants his father’s expertise as he looks into a suspicious death. Together they follow the trail of leads toward a stone-cold hired killer—only to find that death has been closer than either could have imagined.
Engaging and thrilling with so many twists into the story that you won't be able to guess what was going on until the writer reveals it to you. This was one of the few mystery thrillers that I was so totally into for quite sometime. The writing was excellent, the flow of the story, the pacing and build up to the end was so smoothly done, it was almost with regret to turn that last page. As the title suggested the story revolves around the mysterious person called The Fixer. A hired assassin but more a vigilante for justice. The story unfolds slowly, almost each chapter is devoted to a certain scene or person, appearing unrelated at first but a third into the book you suddenly see the connection. The characters are a story in itself, back stories, personalities are revealed bit by bit, all interwoven into the main story line, that the reader never loses sight of it. Instead the characters are slowly integrated into the mystery, becoming integral plots into a puzzle that is The Fixer. I leave no specifics in this review to avoid spoiling the whole book, suffice to say I was very satisfied with it in all levels, story line, interesting flawed characters (almost a sense of them being real people), the whole technical scenarios and the writing which already holds the author's own voice. The Fixer is a mystery thriller with soul.
