I had a very hard time putting this book down. I love reading suspenseful books. I was on NetGalley and requested this one for review, and when I was accepted I got super excited. I just really, really liked this book.
I don't even know how to explain what I love about this book without giving too much away. The characters were fantastic. I was grabbed from the very beginning.
There are so many characters in this book. I had to keep writing down the names so I could remember who they were, and when it all comes together...boom...mind. blown. It was great.
Dr. Lydia Corriger is a Psychologist who has a patient come in by the name of Savannah. Savannah comes with problems, and walls already put up before really starting therapy. Mort Grant is a homicide detective trying to solve some unexplained murders. Robert, Mort's son is a journalist on the search for the next big story. Little do they know they are closer to the story than either of them realize.
The way this unravels is absolutely fantastic. The way the characters connect is awesome. They writing was fabulous. I was just so drawn into this book. I kept thinking I had everything figured out, then BAM...something else happens and I am again...mind. blown. I really just love how everything worked out in this book.
The ending completely surprised me. COMPLETELY. I was not expecting such a fantastic ending.
The ONLY complaint I have about this book is that the f-bomb is dropped too much for my liking. Having said that, it really is a fantastic book. I just wouldn't recommend it for a younger reader. I would probably let my 17 yr old read it, but any younger than that I don't think I could recommend it. But for adults...it's just so very good just be aware there is language in it.
Thank you Random House Publishing-Alibi and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this fantastic book.

When a vigilante killer-for-hire known as the Fixer ends up work
When a vigilante killer-for-hire known as the Fixer ends up working for the wrong people it’s up to an oldschool cop and an intelligent psychologist to keep that from happening. I don’t want to go into too many details because there’d be a spoiler at every juncture but believe me when I say it’s fun to read how they each accomplish this.
Once the plot gain it’s momentum, it was a breakneck ride that had you at the edge of your seat. Suddenly, I found myself submerged in a far more complicated story than I anticipated! The mystery had so many twists and turns it was hard to predict and even harder to put down. There were several moments that I thought I knew exactly what T.E. Woods was up to only to have that theory turned on its head. With T.E. Woods pulling some ‘Agatha Christie moves’ I think thriller/mystery fans will love “The Fixer”.
