THE RED HOT FIX: a Justice Novel ~T.E. Woods

“’ It’s no secret we’re looking for a prostitute.’ Mort didn’t share the DNA evidence. ‘Help me understand what kind of woman she might be.’
“’Do you mean what kind of woman becomes a prostitute? Or what kind of prostitute becomes a killer?’ Charlotte leaned back against the booth.” (at  8% into the uncorrected proof on my Kindle)


THE FIXER comes to life again in THE RED HOT FIX, book two in the Justice Series by Woods.  I so liked the first book TLC Online Tours gave me an e-copy to read and then put Book 3 on my schedule for reading and review also in October.  Am I lucky or what?  If someone had said I would enjoy murder mysteries a few years ago I would have said, “no way”.   Fooled myself!

I believe it is because the women are smart and capable in the books I have been reading recently and many of the stories are about changing perceptions about people and changing violent reactions in people.  The author does not treat the reader as an escape artist needing entertainment, but actually someone who likes to exercise her/his curiosity and think it through; enough plot twists to keep the mind guessing and stamping on assumptions.

The story only has moments in Olympia in the FIXER’S home and touching base with her coffee shop friend Oliver.  She is healing after her brush with death and she is remaking her life in one of those limbo moments before big change.  She does help her Detective friend Mort Grant in Seattle who is coping with a serial killer.  We learn a few lessons about kids on the streets, drugs and revenge.

The novel also includes the wealthy family who owns the local basketball team and the huge outdoor sport’s store.  There are the stars and the up and coming stars vying for the playoffs and dealing with racial tensions and competition and a controlling boss who doesn’t hesitate to make other’s lives miserable.  This book also takes us into the world of Whidbey Island, Mercer Island, libraries and junk dealers.  If that were not enough there is the stealth of uncovering a child pornography ring.    I dare you to put this story down before the last page.  Double Dare!

The FIXER started the progress on the bestseller’s lists and now THE RED HOT FIX is moving up the ladder to even greater heights and at a faster pace.   It held my attention and was a pleasing diversion, entertaining and relaxing.  I admire writing that just fits together and treats women with respect and honesty.

Thanks again to TLC online tours   for the gift of this book and to T.E. Woods for the great story.

    Sara,
    They are not very expensive on e-book format and I would suggest you put all 3 on your list…they stand alone but fit together like a glove

    What a read!

    Terrific review Patricia! I have myself been a longtime fan of murder mysteries dating back to my obsessive run of Agatha Christie, Earl Stanley Gardner, John LeCarre and Raymond Chandler. Sounds like THE RED HOT FIX is a spellbinder worth some time investment.
