Publisher's Summary

I'll probably never see my daughter again. And if I do, she'll either be dead or in a jail cell.

Seattle Chief of Detectives Mort Grant cannot reconcile the memories of his vibrant, headstrong young daughter with the cold, deadly woman she has become. The head of one of the largest criminal enterprises in the world, Allie Grant seized power by wrenching it away from her lover, a notorious Russian gangster. How she maintains her control, Mort doesn't even want to imagine.

Only two other people know the truth about Allie: the vigilante known as The Fixer, and Mort's best friend, Larry, who's undergoing a crisis of his own. Someone close to Larry, his last real connection to his beloved late wife, has been slain in a mass murder at a sweat lodge deep in the woods of Washington State. When word gets out, Mort immediately takes on the gruesome case.

But as Mort hunts down a pair of methodical killers, The Fixer does some deep digging of her own. And what she unearths will rock Mort's family forever. Because The Fixer has set her sights on Allie Grant - and nothing will ever be the same again.

Has the Fixer met her match?

In the beginning of this book Lydia proves to herself that "The Fixer" is able to change her ways. Instead of killing a man who is deserving, she calls the police and tells them where they can find him.
Meanwhile Mort's daughter Ali the new Czarina shows up in town, once again. Seems she's missing her family. However she's not willing to give up here lucrative drug business and continues to conduct her business while in town. In between she tries to win over her nieces with lavish gifts and makes serious threats to Lydia.
Mort is on a multiple murder case involving a friend. Just when he thinks he has it solved something happens to throw his conclusions out of wack.
There are some crazy twists and no one is safe from Ali...
This book ends with an explosive cliffhanger.
Christina Delaine does an outstanding job narrating.
This book is most HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Listen to this series in order written!

This novel, Book 5 in the series, ends in a major cliffhanger situation! The series finale titled Dead End Fix should be released in audio in 4 to 6 weeks. I'm going to purchase the Kindle version of Dead End Fix (it has been available since June of 2016). Of course I'll also get the audio version when it is released

I've written reviews of the first four series novels and all have earned 5 stars. I see that Shelley wrote an excellent review (which you should read) of Fixed in Fear yesterday, so I'll skip writing anything about the plot details. I will say that Mort's daughter Ali and Lydia, the woman Mort loves and protects, are set up for an epic fight that one will not likely survive. Fixed in Fear is an outstanding suspense mystery in an equally outstanding series.

The Justice/Fixer Series has my highest possible recommendation.

Weakest of series but a still entertaining

I really like this series. Strong characters, developed over time. Generally, plot tension. Quality violence and gratuitous couplings. It is all brought together by an outstanding narrator who pull off believable thugs, vulnerable women and cute kids all in paragraph.

The plot here is weak. Not a lot of misdirection. You will figure it out long before the characters do.

This book seem to be a bridge to set up the big-time confrontation sure to be at the center of the next book in the series. Guess it is worth reading for that reason plus enjoying a master narrator at work.

FIXED IN FEAR

Excellent book! Major subplots that the author has a great way of entangling with each other. Mort's best friend, his daughter and the FIXER all play an integral part in this story. That's all I'm going to say. for fear of spoilers. One thing, I will say, there are some serious twists in this one. AGAIN, EXCELLENT NARRATION!!! 😁😈👠💶💴💰💵.

Excellent read!!!

You need to read this series in order! This last one was just as good as all the others! I love the narrator, she’s really good at separating voices without having someone need to tell you who was speaking. What a cliffhanger!! Wow! Get writing TE Woods. I will anxiously await the next one!

Love this series!

I am so happy more of the Justice Series has come to audible. Book 5, Fixed in Fear, did not disappoint! The characters are engaging, the narrator is great and the development of Ally’s character is intriguing. I would have liked more of the focus to be on that story line. With Larry’s story it felt like it could be two separate books.
It does leave us on a cliffhanger and the next book is not on audible! I’ll be waiting.

Another gripping Fixer Novel

Would you listen to Fixed in Fear again? Why?

Well written; great character development; and keeps you on the edge throughout. The book and the author are a wonderful find. CDelaine is an outstanding reader and her reading helps one visualize the events as they develop.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

yes! the interplay of Mort Grant's murder investigations; the continuing problems with his daughter, Allie; his daughter's attempted manipulation of his granddaughters and his son; Mort's relationship with Lydia Corriger; and Lydia's handling of matters always keeps one on the edge, guessing where the story will take us.

What does Christina Delaine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she is outstanding. her reading skills and the tone of her voice makes one, who was raised on the radio stories of the 40s and 50s clearly visualize the events as they progress. i note with sadness that Ms Delaine appears not to be reading the final book in this outstanding series. i for one will miss her. jeff lantz

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Eat your heart out Olivia Pope! It is time the public meets the True Fixer."

Any additional comments?

i only recently discovered t e woods through Audible and have loved all the books she has written in the "Fixer" series. living in Seattle i love all the local references and note she has nailed the highlights and lows of this wonderful NW area completely. her writing skills are unsurpassed, as is her wonderful character development and detailed analysis of clinical psychology. as a former prosecutor from Indiana i love the way Mort and his team develop their cases. as a former defense attorney who represented clients in white collar and drug cases her development and the picture she paints of what goes on with these individuals is straight on.

Not my favorite but still very good!

This was my least favorite of the series so far but I still enjoyed it.

I did miss Lydia quite a bit in this book. She didn't make as many appearances as the previous books. But she was still kicking butt. There are a couple stories going on in this book and I was drawn more too the story line that included Lydia more than the cabin massacre. Oh that Allison Grant.............. wow.

As for the narration, it was amazing as usual. Christina Delaine does a great job with Lydia's voice and Mort's voice.The men sound like men. She is a very good narrator.

I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!

If you haven't read this series you should. Start at the beginning with The Fixer.
