FIXED IN BLOOD: A Justice Novel ~T.E.Woods
I could hardly wait to get a copy FIXED IN BLOOD and read it from cover to cover. The fourth book in the justice series by Woods, I have reviewed each of the others and enjoyed each one. Each book left me wanting to read more of Woods’ stories.
Alibi sent me an uncorrected advanced copy of the book for review on my blog and it arrived with perfect timing. I was excited to open the copy and dive into this exciting read.
Dr. Lydia Corriger is a psychologist who works on the west coast of the USA and helps the homicide detective Mort Grant, of Seattle PD, profile the killers he is tracking down. She is very pro-female needs and agendas; working to make the world a safer place for children, particularly those in foster care. Her positive energy and understanding do create a positive energy for females and indicates someone is looking out for women and other victims.
Mort Grant is a fine detective, who has lost his wife to cancer and his daughter to dangerous adventure. His son writes books about his father’s work and interesting cases. The characters make for an interesting study of humans and their working efforts; they are very real and believable.
That the books take place in my neck of the woods is also very motivating. They include details which actually happened in my part of the country and that have motivated some very big changes in our local justice system. I like the details that are included from our area. I am sure I know which building in town is Dr. Corriger’s office and where her favorite coffee shop is located.
The books are well written and a fast read for me and although the subject matter is not so easy to handle, the story lines are good and the hope of good resolution is satisfying. We are on the I-5 drug smuggling corridor and that is very apparent in these stories, though I am not so sure about the Russian Mafia being so heavily involved. This idea is very possible.
At the end of the book it says: “T. E. Woods is a clinical psychologist and author living in Madison, Wisconsin. For random insight into how her strange mind works, follow her: tewoodswrites.com, Facebook.com/TEWoodsWrites; @tewooodswrites“
