Publisher's Summary

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.

Another Assassin with a morals and criteria...

I really enjoyed this book, what I didn't like was the narrator. Not so much her voice but the sloooooownesssss of her narration. I listened to it at 1.5 speed and it sounded much better!
The book is very good. Woman abused as a child who becomes a semi assassin with a code of morals and a set of criteria who gets blackmailed by someone who ignores her standards. Basically that's the book in a nutshell. But there is a whole story behind that that is very good. You actually don't find out who she is until almost the end of the book as there is another likely person that it could be. Kind of a surprise ending but a good one.
I do RECOMMEND this book and am on the fence about getting the next in the series only because of the narrator but will probably get it and listen to it at the faster speed.

This book started out very suspenseful with an interesting story line that was quite unusual. However by the middle of the book it seemed to get bogged down in numerous unrelated murders & personal story lines that got mixed up & confusing. The rest of the book was spent unraveling the plot. i think the author should have kept things simple. And the animal research was just another "What?" in the whole story line that didn't quite fit in my opinion.
