Goodreads: 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.
Kritters Thoughts: Book three in the series, if you haven't read book 1 or 2 you may want to stop here. Yesterday I reviewed book 2 and although there are no spoilers, it is definitely worth it starting at the beginning.
Mort and Lydia are back and Lydia is trying to get back into the groove of her life both professionally and personally. Mort thinks that he will have a quiet period on the job until his daughter arrives after being gone for 4 years. She has had quite the 4 years and has ended up in the middle of something that may be hard to get out of, enough to go running home to get help.
Again, I loved that there was a main storyline and other story lines that weaved in and out and in the end connected. I was glad to see Mort and Lydia interact more in this book, I loved their interplay. It was also interesting to see a different side of Mort by having his long lost daughter be a part of the main storyline - gave him some extra vulnerability that I loved reading.
Another great book in the series and I am hoping not the last time we hear from Mort and Lydia.
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
