Meet Lawson, a touch-talking, wise-cracking secret agent for the vampire council. As a Fixer, it is Lawson's job to maintain the Balance, that veil of secrecy that keeps the vampire race hidden from ordinary humans. When a vampire steps over the line, it's up to him to be sure they never have the chance to do so again. When Lawson's oldest enemy, Cosgrove, returns to Boston and begins to carve a bloody swath through the human population, it only makes sense that the Council sends Lawson to take care of things. But things aren't always as they seem and Lawson soon finds himself neck deep in trouble, uncertain of who to trust and rapidly running out of options. If you're looking for an urban fantasy series with a different take on vampires and enjoy firefights, martial arts, and a noir atmosphere, then I urge you to give The Fixer a try. You won't be disappointed.

This is the first in the Lawson series. If you like your vampire stories gritty, witty and action packed then this is definitely the one for you. Right from the start you are taken on an wild, adrenaline fueled romp into what has become a very interesting and unique take on the world of vampires. With characters that you want to see more of its a good thing that the rest of the Lawson series is also now available on the nook. What are you waiting for? Get them ordered and start reading.

I'm not sure why the reviewer says that it was "poorly formatted" because the entire manuscript looks just great on my Nook. I did not have an issue with it and it is a FANTASTIC Read!! I love all of Jon. F. Merz's books!!

If I were to go on story alone, I would give this book 4 stars. But formatting plays an important part in an eBook, and there was just so much that was poorly formatted that I can't overlook that. It was like I purchased a pirated copy, with odd line breaks, chapters that jumped from 2 to 19...the chapters are there, just regular text inside paragraphs so you HAVE to search for it and edit the book yourself. Otherwise, it's really not an enjoyable read. Also there are question marks at certain points that didn't seem to belong...and it just seemed like a converted text file....not a book. The story itself was actually quite good. Although the character descriptions are lacking, the action kind of speaks for who they are. The action scenes are described REALLY well, and the authors training in Ninjitsu really comes through...one thing I hate is a fight scene that doesn't make sense..this makes sense. Use of momentum, pivot points, and reaction were a sight for sore eyes. This is definitely a different take on the Vampire...and I loved it. Screw Twilight....Lawson is my type of vampire!! I will be buying the next book in the series because the world is intriguing to me. And I'm purposely not really saying anything about the plot in this because it was well done, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone that might check this out!

. I can't believe it's been 15 years since the Fixer first released. I had just started reading ebooks on my netbook (yeah, that was before all the ereaders and tablets were everywhere) and I came across a free book called Dead Drop. I like action books so I read more about it to see if I would be interested. I read it was about a Vampire Assassin who was also a ninja. I thought, ah come on, really, all that in one person? This has to be a joke or something horribly cheesy. I put off reading it for a few days but then kept coming back to it. I finally thought, ok, I'm going to try it, if it's no good I'm not out any money. So I was maybe two pages in when I realized that it was not cheesy or silly but that it was a full on action adventure story. That's when I first fell in love with this Vampire, Assassin, ninja, named Lawson and I haven't stopped loving him since. He's a fixer, an assassin who works for the Vampire Council. It's his job to make sure that Vampires are not exposed to humans so if a Vampire is causing trouble and drawing attention it's up to him to put a stop to it and he goes all over the world to do it. I read everything Lawson as soon as it's released. I love the action, the guns, the military type stories, his tough as nails girlfriend, the stories with his friends who have become his family, his sense of fairness, equality, his toughness, and just everything about him. This is one of my all time favorite series and Im so glad that I chanced upon it and I appreciate Jon F. Merz for giving me such great stories.

This seriously needed an editor. There were about 2 dozen typos and other mistakes. It needed to shed 100 pages. The real problem, though, is plot. It's Blade rewritten as a slower, stupider vampire. Sorry, Ninja-vampire. Seriously? For a guy who spent 100 years learning to fight, he gets his butt kicked every single time. The fight scenes are actually boring. And the overarching story - he basically gets himself in the same situation & makes the same mistake 5 times for the sake of forbidden love.

This was a pretty good read. It was something totally outside of my normal type of books but I'm glad I read it. I think this counts as Urban Fantasy? Maybe? See I'm not even sure what to call it. Either way, it was good. I'll definitely continue on into the series to see what happens. The book ended with a good deal of momentum and so I hope that isn't lost as the series goes on. I love that the Vampires in this series aren't some weird type of supernatural creature but instead another species that evolved alongside of humans. Great idea. That alone opens up soooooo many more ideas and doors.

Good read, with an interesting plot. Reminds me a little of the Travis McGee books by John McDonald. There were quite a few typos in this ebook edition though.
