The Synopsis for ‘The Unforgivable Fix’:
On the heels of her runaway hits The Fixer and The Red Hot Fix, T. E. Woods ratchets up the tension with her newest explosive thriller in the fast-paced Justice series.
The killer won’t come for you, you fool. He’ll come for me.
Detective Mort Grant of the Seattle PD has finally decided to sell. The home where he and his late wife raised two kids feels too large and too full of old memories. His son is married and raising a family of his own, and despite desperate efforts to find her, Mort has lost touch with his wayward daughter. That is, until the day she walks back into her childhood home and begs for his help.
For the last four years, Allie Grant has been the lover—and confidante, confessor, and counselor—of one of the world’s most powerful and deadly men. But a sudden, rash move has put Allie in the crosshairs of a ruthless Russian crime lord. Mort knows of only one place where Allie will be safe: with The Fixer.
As a hired desperado, The Fixer has killed twenty-three people—and Mort was complicit in her escape from the law. She has built an impregnable house, stocked it with state-of-the-art gear, armed it to the teeth, and locked herself away from the world. But even The Fixer may not be able to get justice for Allie when real evil comes knocking.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘THE UNFORGIVABLE FIX’:
I was given the opportunity to read and review “The Unforgivable Fix” by T. E. Woods in exchange for an honest review. The story follows Psychologist Lydia Corriger who also happens to secretly go by another name that not many know of, “The Fixer.” The story is written in multiple P.O.V.’s(point of views) which include: Lydia Corriger, Allie, Mort, Patrick, and some of Detective Paul Bauer.
Lydia Corriger decided to open her practice in Olympia and to put her secret identity as “The Fixer” away for now. Her main focus would be on her patience as a psychologist in the town to different types of people with assorted backgrounds. She decides to take in an apprentice named Zach, who she would take under her wing. Things seemed to be going in a normal pace, far from the life of an assassin’s life anyway.
Old memories of terrible times begin to lurk in her mind again when a case of a possible child abuse come to her door. Not only is she dealing with that but her old trusted pal Mort comes around and asks for a huge favor. He asks Lydia if his adult daughter, Allie, who he hadn’t seen in a while, can stay with her to hide out. Allie was running away from a lifestyle that could cost her life if she were to be caught by any of the notorious men who were more than likely trying to find her.
Allie has been away from her father Mort for a while and has established a new life far from home with a dangerous and filthy rich man named Patrick Duncan. After Patrick makes a rash decision, causing a possible war to stir between him and a ruthless Russian crime lord, Allie decides to flee for her own safety. Patrick won’t let the woman he’s known and trusted to just disappear that easily.
This story has a great blend of twists and turns that deliver entertaining mystery with a build up of suspense. Will “The Fixer” be forced back into the lifestyle of an assassin again? Can Allie escape the ones who are determined to hunt her down? And who can Lydia Corriger, the psychologist, trust when something doesn’t seem right within her practice? Check this marvelous novel if you are looking for something outside of the realm of romance and more along the lines of suspense and mystery.
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR RATING: ‘THE UNFORGIVABLE FIX’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘THE UNFORGIVABLE FIX’:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘THE UNFORGIVABLE FIX’★★★
Lydia’s thoughts: Still Mort’s words invaded. He’s right. I have no connection to anything. She mentally shook her mind clear and climbed. Shift right and pull. Shift left and push. I’m all alone.
Lydia’s thoughts: By the time I was Zach’s age, I’d been abandoned by my mother, never knew my father, survived sixteen different foster placements, and spent two years in juvie for beating one of my rapists into a coma with a baseball bat. I had more than enough life experience to build empathy…and I still on to kill.
Patrick and Olwen: “I’ll put a bullet in Tokarev’s throat.” His voice rumbled against her ear. “He’s not taking what I have built.”
“Shh…” She pressed her hips against him and caressed the small of his back. “Now’s not the time. Your serenity is your strength.” she whispered again. “Your strength comes from me.”
Patrick’s thoughts: Revenge coursed through his veins. Retribution pulled at every muscle. He would find her. He would reclaim her. He would spend the rest of his life either tending to her scars or weeping at her grave.
Lydia’s thoughts: Here was an equal. A woman who’d made choices and decisions and now found herself in the position of having to meet the consequences. I can relate to you, Allie. It’s hell to face the reality of what we’ve done.
