page turner! Couldn't put it down
Review of Fixer by T. Androus on Amazon.com
It has been a long time since I read anything that combines a "hot"
story with characters that are this believable. Harry Leonnoff is evidently
based on the author's real-life grandfather. Throw in Fiorello La Guardia,
"Curly Murphy," and Marie DeSante and you can't lose. Fixer has plenty
of sex and violence, but tastefully done within the context of the story,
which only serves to make this novel exciting from beginning to end. Harry's
life is explored from his humble beginnings on New York's Lower East Side
slums to his emergence as one of the most powerful political "fixers"
in New York. The human side of his character is deftly explored, which
made me really care about how his life turns out. The bonus is the wonderful
last chapter in which Harry's life is seen through the eyes of his grandson.
All in all, a super read.
