NEW from the best-selling author of Immortal and Hellenic Immortal: it’s Fixer!
What would you do if you could see into the future?
As a child, he dreamed of being a superhero. Most people never get to realize their childhood dreams, but Corrigan Bain has come close. He is a fixer. His job is to prevent accidents—to see the future and “fix” things before people get hurt. But the ability to see into the future, however limited, isn’t always so simple. Sometimes not everyone can be saved.
“Don’t let them know you can see them.”
Graduate students from a local university are dying, and former lover and FBI agent Maggie Trent is the only person who believes their deaths aren’t as accidental as they appear. But the truth can only be found in something from Corrigan Bain’s past, and he’s not interested in sharing that past, not even with Maggie.
To stop the deaths, Corrigan will have to face up to some old horrors, confront the possibility that he may be going mad, and find a way to stop a killer no one can see.
Corrigan Bain is going insane . . . or is he?
n addition to ghost writing for an immortal man, Gene Doucette has been published as a humorist with Beating Up Daddy: A Year in the Life of an Amateur Father and The Other Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: A Parody. He is also a screenwriter and a playwright. Gene lives in Cambridge, MA with his wife and two children.
Fixer is written in various points of view. Corrigan’s is the main one, but we are able to see into other characters that effect the events that transpire. It’s an awesome mystery with creepy factor.
Corrigan is our main character. He’s able to see the future and tries to keep people from getting hurt. He shows up at just the right time to save unsuspecting people. He doesn’t allow himself to get close to anyone. He figures nobody can really understand his abilities so why bother. He thinks he can do it all, and when he fails he takes it personally. Seeing through his eyes can be sensory overload at times. You’re seeing both the present and future. Maggie, his buddy (in more ways than one) from the FBI, comes to him to help with a case. I connected with her pretty quickly. She knows that their relationship is nothing more than occasionally ending up staying the night with Corrigan. I think she wants more though. She’s a fiery red-head with little filter. She pretty much says what’s on her mind to those she knows.
The plot is fast paced. You get glimpses of what happened in the past, and what is happening now. Things that happened to Corrigan as a child come into play in the present. We get to see how he was raised for a period of time in his life. It’s definitely odd. But important in how he chooses to live his life as an adult. The bad guy is super creepy. I definitely had trouble sleeping when I was reading before bedtime, especially when I got to a certain part in Corrigan’s childhood. Freaking creepy!!! My only complaint was that some of the scientific terminology used by the MIT staff was over my head. But I got the gist of what was being said.
If you are looking for a mystery with some otherworldliness to it, definitely grab this. Doucette does a great job of bringing his characters and story to life.
