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.
This is the third book in the "Fixer" series. I really enjoy the first one, The Fixer. I didn't have the chance to read the second book, Red Hot Fix, but I never felt like I was missing anything while reading The Unforgivable Fix. There are two cases going on at the same time in this book. One involving Lydia and her therapy practice and the other involving Mort's daughter Allie who is on the run from the drug world.
As far as story-lines go, I liked one involving Lydia's practice more. I kind of wish the book was more about that whole scenario. Without giving too much away, I thought it was the more interesting of the two. The wrap up included a twist I didn't expect. I also had more sympathy for Lydia's patients and their families that I did for Mort's daughter Allie. I don't have much sympathy in general for anyone who purposefully put themselves into a situation like hers. I was a bit disappointed that Mort was so naive about his own daughter.
So, in the end, it was a pretty good addition to the series. I didn't love it as much as the first, but I still found it a good and quick read. I will have to go back and try Red Hot Fix before the next book comes out.
