The Fixer Season 1 Episode 1 By: Rex Carpenter
JC Bannister calls himself a solutionist. His clients call him a fixer. His enemies, a hitman for hire. For the right price, he’ll fix your problem. A call comes in. A meeting in a bar. A contract is agreed upon. But when the contract is for killing a US Senator, Bannister’s problems are just beginning. Worst of all, JC thinks he’s being set up. But the why and the who is just out of his reach. Bannister must find out who is behind the double-cross, complete the contract and satisfy his very powerful client before his solution changes the political future of the country. Or gets him and his entire team killed. The Fixer is an explosive new thriller series by Rex Carpenter that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last body drops. WARNING: The Fixer is for mature audiences. It contains strong language and violence. If it was a movie, it would be rated R. If it was on TV, it would be on cable. If it was an album it’d have a Parental… you get the picture.
This really reminded me of the Expendables. If the Expendables had a plot.
There was action, the main characters seem to be total bad asses, and there was a nice twist at the end.
I do want to explain this is the first episode in a season, so there isn’t a resolution. Reading some of the reviews I’m not sure if other people understood that, though I think the title of the book kind of gives it away. Why shouldn’t writers create a serialized world like TV shows?
Anyway, if you like short reads (41 pages give or take) and are into macho men kicking ass I think you’ll like this. I’ll continue reading and let you know if it keeps up the pace.
