Overview

T. E. Woods delivers a fast-paced thriller—the first in an electrifying new series—peopled with sharp, intriguing characters and more twists and turns than a corkscrew.
 
Never a doubt. Never a mistake. Always for justice. Never for revenge. She’s the person you hire when you need something fixed—permanently. 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.
 
Advance praise for The Fixer
 
“Hot and unpredictable, this debut hurls you down the curvy gray avenues of right and wrong at about a hundred and fifty miles per hour. Strap yourself in!”—Amanda Kyle Williams, author of The Stranger You Seek

“Pitch-perfect . . . solid characters, unpredictable twists and excellent plotting; a must-read for those who enjoy crime fiction.”Kirkus Reviews

    A female hitman who has nicknamed herself The Fixer and as you find out in the story she is out to redeem a horrible childhood that still scars her.  Unfortunately, her recent job has turned into a little more than her normal job and she is caught up in quite an affair!

    The first five chapters were short and each had cliff hangers and I was nervous that thing wouldn't connect - thank goodness they did!  Although the short chapters continued through the book, I wished that the chapters had more flow to them to allow for an easier read.

    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”.

    Man, I don't even know what to say.  My head is still kind of spinning from this book.  It just was so good.




    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.

    Surprisingly good read!

    This was one of those books I purchased because it was 99 cents, so I thought what have I got to lose? Well, it definitely had some plots and twists, where you weren't sure who the bad guy was and the main characters definitely had some depth and character. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

    Who, what, where, when, why?

    This book was completely confusing. I had no idea who the fixer was half the time.

    Wow - Great & Suspenseful Read!

    Ok, I am still trying to figure out how we got to the end! This was a great, great book!! Usually I'm pretty good at guessing what will happen next, but just when I thought I had it all figured out, something else was introduced. This is definitely at the top of my reading list. This is the first book I have ever written a review on. So my hat's off to the author!! This is a true winner.

    This was a wild and twisty ride that started with a huge shift halfway through when the character we started out with, seemed to morph into a whole new main character. I had no clue who was what or when for awhile there and I love when that happens! I enjoyed the relationship between Liddy & Mort and that is why this book gets a 5 star nod from me ... well, that and the child abuse angle which always gets to me as I have worked with and been around abused kids for a good part of my life.
    The story starts with a hired killer known as the fixer. Her kills are always for justice, never for revenge, vigilante justice . She evaluates each request and only does one a year. There are some high profile murders happening in town and the Police detective needs some help figuring things out so he turns to a local clinical philologist for some help and it seems she has some problems of her own to figure out with a young woman who knows her from her past. Can these two people come together and find the assassin who seems to be shadowing them both? throw in the mix some extremely wealthy powerful people and you have some wild twists and turns in this book. Great story line, great characters. I am looking forward to the next book out in this series "The Red Hot Fix" coming out in June 2014
