"My normal preferred genres of books usually doesn’t include historical novels. I don’t know why, but maybe the writers didn’t really impress me with their descriptions…or maybe I just got older and my tastes changed (kind of like they do with food). Needless to say, I truly enjoyed reading Fixer and getting a taste of what it was like in the early 1900′s in New York and what it was like to be an immigrant and Jewish on top of that. Politics were a whole different game back then and it was fascinating to learn about positions that don’t exist any more, but perhaps they should.
"The author takes you through a very historic period in New York and the dark and seedy underbelly of politics. While the book is fiction, there is some truth to the story. He weaves a tale that makes you feel like you are there and living in that moment and can imagine what it was like to be an immigrant at the turn of the century.
"This story really grabbed me and kept me entranced with the characters and how they overcame adversity for their time.
"I definitely recommend this book and give it 2 thumbs up! If you have a Kindle or other E-book reader it is a steal at $2.99 on Smashwords."Storeybook Reviews
