Never a doubt. Never a mistake. Always for justice. Never for revenge. She’s the person you hire when you need something fixed—permanently. With a strict set of criteria, she evaluates every request and chooses only a few. No more than one job per country, per year. She will only step in if it’s clear that justice will not be served any other way. Her jobs are completed with skill and precision, and never result in inquiry or police investigation. The Fixer is invisible—and quite deadly. . . .

Oh goodness, the characterization was top notch. The characters are deep-core of the earth deep-and the psychological aspects ring true to my layman's interpretation. Woods is a psychologist herself so I presume there's something to it. I also enjoyed that there was no black and white villains versus good guys. Real life is tricky and Woods balances realism with the comforting idea that there is someone to call to correct injustice. The Fixer and the psychologist in the novel are good characters but quietly Mort Grant slips onto the scene and he's just as interesting. I pretty much finished this book and immediately wanted to read more.
