Review of Fixer by Susanna Hutcheson, award-winning journalist
Not since Edna Ferber's great novels and Betty Smith's "A Tree Grows
in Brooklyn" have I read a novel that is so lifelike, powerful and riveting.
Fact is, I don't read novels. But this one came across my desk and I was
attracted to it. So I read it. I'm glad I did.
There is nothing more entertaining than reading about politics and corruption,
crime and the big city. You get it all in this dynamic new novel by Ed
I think we all love to read about tough guys and gals -- people without
fear. And no one is quite as tough and fearless as power broker, Harry
Leonnoff. He confronts gangsters and bigots and saves nine black men from
the electric chair.
This is a fascinating read. Highly recommended.
