Book Review: The Fixer by Joseph Finder

Let's talk about reading books out of my comfortable zone and this one that I'm reviewing today is a great example of it.  It did help that the story took place in Massachusetts lol.  But seriously, a mystery, thriller, suspense book?  Yeah, not something that I'm usually looking for but I picked up and I really enjoyed it and now I am so read more books by this author, that's how much I enjoyed it.  But I'm going to stop babbling so much and get to the review:

The Fixer by Joseph Finder


Rick Hoffman just lost his job, his fiancee and his apartment, so what can the guy do but move back into his dad's house.  However the house is empty, old and pretty much falling apart since his dad had a stroke and end up in a nursing home, so he decides to renovate the house.

When Rick starts to pull apart the old house, he makes a discovery that changes his life forever-millions of dollars hidden in the walls.  It's enough money to completely transform his life but also change everything of what he thought about his father.  So, he decides to find out more about his father's hidden past but while doing that the more dangerous he finds himself in.  Soon, he finds himself running away from deadly enemies that wants to keep the past buried and the only solving the mystery of his dad--a man who hasn't been able to communicate, comprehend or care for himself for almost 20 years, will save Rick.  Will Rick survive?

This book was good, Rick was always on the go, the poor guy couldn't take a break, every time he thought he was getting closer to something, something else would happen.  The mystery was hard to uncover and his father?  No help, because he wasn't able to communicate at all, because of his sickness so Rick had to do it on his own.  So, if you like a good mystery and suspense book?  Definitely give this one a try.  4.5 stars out of 5.
