“The Fixer” was published in 2014 and was written by Terri “T. E.” Woods (http://www.tewoodswrites.com). This is the first book in the “Justice” series. Ms. Woods has written three novels. The eBook is available on Amazon.
I obtained this novel for free in advance through https://www.netgalley.com for review. This is a mystery / thriller and I would rate this novel as ‘R’ as there is Mature Language and Violence. The novel is written in the third person and is set in and around Seattle, Washington and Olympia, Washington. The primary characters are Mort Grant, Lydia Corriger and The Fixer.
Lydia is a psychologist in private practice in Olympia. A beautiful but troubled woman, Savannah, unexpectedly walks into her office one day. Lydia tries to help Savannah, but Savannah is not very forthcoming. Savannah alludes to being responsible for bad things happening to people. Lydia begins to investigate Savannah to see if what she has been saying is true.
Mort Grant is a Seattle, Washington Police Detective. He is still dealing with the loss of his wife of many years as well as the unknown condition of his long missing daughter. Mort gets a call from his journalist son asking for information on a suspicious death. During their investigation, they hear of an assassin know as The Fixer.
The Fixer is an assassin with high standards – any target she takes must be guilty of some grievous wrong and have evaded justice. A recent assignment has gotten out of hand and now exposure of her identity is being threatened.
As the story evolves, Lydia, Mort and The Fixer are all drawn together. I have read all three of Ms. Woods novels in the “Justice” series and enjoyed each and every one. This novel took me just over 7 hours to read. The characters were each well developed and you felt like you knew them. The plot was fast paced, keeping up my interest through out. I give this novel a 5 out of 5.
