Schauplatz ist das zaristische Rußland einige Jahre vor der Oktoberrevolution, zu einer Zeit, da ein radikaler Antisemitismus, geschürt von religiösen Fanatikern und politischen Spekulanten, zu brutalster Unmenschlichkeit ausartet. Jakow Bok, der »Fixer«, ein jüdischer Gelegenheitsarbeiter, gutmütig und naiv, verläßt nach persönlichen und religiösen Enttäuschungen sein Dorf, um in Kiew sein Glück zu machen. Aber er wird von der Geschichte zum Helden, zum Märtyrer ausersehen, ohne daß er sich dessen bewußt wird: ein kleiner Junge wird ermordet aufgefunden, und die Juden werden für die Untat verantwortlich gemacht. Jakow Bok wird als Vertreter einer verhaßten und verkannten Minderheit zum Sündenbock gestempelt, auf den die Krisenstimmung einer ganzen Gesellschaft abgewälzt wird. Jakow wird verhaftet wegen eines Verbrechens, das er nie begangen hat. Jahrelang erträgt er Einzelhaft, Verhöre, Hunger, Terror und Mißhandlungen, weil er an die Macht der Wahrheit glaubt.

Kiev, 1911. When a twelve-year-old Russian boy is found stabbed to death, his body drained of blood, the accusation of ritual murder is levelled at the Jews. Yakov Bok - a handyman hiding his Jewish identity from his anti-Semitic employer - is first outed and blamed. Arrested and imprisoned, Bok refuses to confess to a crime that he did not commit. What becomes of this man under pressure, for whom acquittal is made to seem as hopeless as conviction, is the subject of a terrifying masterpiece of twentieth-century fiction.

T. E. Woods delivers a fast-paced thriller—the first in an electrifying new series—peopled with sharp, intriguing characters and more twists and turns than a corkscrew. 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. . . . In the office of a clinical psychologist in Olympia, Washington, a beautiful young woman is in terrible emotional pain. She puts up walls, tells lies, and seems to speak in riddles, but the doctor is determined to help her heal, despite the fact that she claims to have hurt many people. As their sessions escalate, the psychologist feels compelled to reach out to the police . . . but it might be too late. In Seattle, a detective gets a call from his son. A dedicated journalist, he wants his father’s expertise as he looks into a suspicious death. Together they follow the trail of leads toward a stone-cold hired killer—only to find that death has been closer than either could have imagined. Advance praise for The Fixer “Hot and unpredictable, this debut hurls you down the curvy gray avenues of right and wrong at about a hundred and fifty miles per hour. Strap yourself in!”—Amanda Kyle Williams, author of The Stranger You Seek “Pitch-perfect . . . solid characters, unpredictable twists and excellent plotting; a must-read for those who enjoy crime fiction.”—Kirkus Reviews
