Corrigan Bain has a life as peculiar and interesting as how he got his name. His job, seeming self-imposed, derived from an amazing mental ability he had from birth. At a young age, once he fully accepted and somewhat understood what he could actually do, led him to believed he was super-heroic. And he was right. As an adult, doing the super-hero thing became his way of life as he used his gift to help others. Though mostly successful with his profession, there were times that he failed, resulting in his having to deal with paranormal intrusions; some more often than others. His long-term, undefined, business and sometimes personal relationship with Boston FBI Agent, Maggie Trent, was a welcomed distraction from his working life. It was this very agent who introduces him to an ongoing case of unexplainable deaths that, with a combination of Science and memories from his past, only someone like Corrigan Bain could actually help resolve.
As a contemporary, science fiction, fantasy novel – The “Fixer” – caught my full attention from the beginning. Being a fan of Gene Doucette’s previous work – The “Immortal” series – I could hardly wait to dive into this new book as well. Though I was somewhat prepared for a mind-boggling adventure, I was by no means ready for where this story would mentally take me. An added bonus was a creative lesson in applied science that I have never cared much for but found myself wanting to know more about. This is why I am such a big fan of Doucette. He has a very distinct writing style and voice that fully entertains and stimulates the minds of his readers. I am already looking forward to what comes next.
