Fixer, The (2002)
Fiction Review by The Undertaker
08.01.03

Fixer, The (2002) This cool book by author Jon F. Merz is exactly what you need if you're looking for something different on the vampire front. Tired of the same old clich İd, goth tinged vampire novels that over-populate most book stores? Then enter the world of Lawson, a fixer, a member of vampiric society charged to help maintain order by sanctioning some of its problem citizens. A vampire hit man, if you will, who works for the The Council, fixing anyone breaking the laws that keep his kind in check or knocking things out of balance. The novel is a great, easy, fast-paced read, with some cool twists on the age-old mythos. Personally, I hate vampire novels and movies lately, but found this book very cool. It mixes the pulp fiction, hard-boiled elements of a great detective story with a touch of espionage, martial arts, and blood draining. I recommend this to anyone burned out on the usual. In the fixer, the 1st of hopefully four Lawson novels, Lawson must stop his greatest enemy Cosgrove, a blood thirsty bastard, who wants to destroy and ultimately make himself the leader of the vampire world's governing body. Things are very personal here as the two foes have plenty of history and with Cosgrove killing a friend of Lawson's early on, there's gonna be hell to pay later. Enter the sexy fianc İe of that friend, who's out to kill the murderer of her man, and you get plenty of action and mystery thrown into the mix. This lady is way more than she 1st appears, but is she friend or foe? That's one thing that kept me reading the most, so many possible double-crossing situations; I wanted to see who really could be trusted. I like the very realistic way the vampire society was portrayed here. Certainly, this is the most believable treatment I have read in a long time, as both human and vampire co-exist, the vampires mostly in secret of course. That's why Lawson is needed, to maintain this order and balance of things. In The Fixer, they are just another species, trying to live, not some evil monsters of the supernatural. Of course, There's plenty of evil in here courtesy of the books more unsavory characters. This should be a great series! I'm looking forward to more Lawson novels in the near future. A vampire, ninjitsu trained hit man means a fun book for you to pick up.
