Romance, and political intrigue
where secrets can be deadly.
David Fitz is a small time drug dealer and con artist who funds his habits and that of his girlfriend, Juno, through drug sales and petty crime. Both are eager to get clean and start a new life, far away from the dangers of the city. They hatch a plan, with an ambitious police officer, to provide evidence against David’s boss. Together they will bring him to justice in return for witness protection. It sounds simple enough, but as soon as they kick their habits Juno gets cold feet. Things get even worse when the cop they are working with leaves them in the middle of nowhere, with no money, no real protection and no long-term plan. When David’s boss is released on bail after just 24 hours they know he will soon be after them. In their seemingly nice new neighbourhood, David and Juno befriend Cadence and Brent. The couple seem friendly enough, but why are they so keen to help when they themselves could face untold dangers? With ever dwindling options their strange alliance has to be better than the certain death they are facing if David's boss finds them. Then again, it could be much, much worse!
Anyone picking up a novel by Michael Golvach should know they are in the hands of a confident and clever writer with a distinctive literary voice. From Missing Pieces to Bloody Gullets he’s demonstrated his unwillingness to compromise when it comes to originality and Fix is no different. It's a bold move by any author to dabble in another genre but with its dark haunted undertones, this is one step change that works extraordinarily well. With its deliriously fast pace matched by the quality of Golvach’s writing, it proves a clever, intricate and intriguing novel that is a genuine joy to read, highly engaging and all but impossible to put down. As with his previous novels, there are detailed motives behind the conflict and competing agendas at work but the real stroke of genius in Fix is its flawed protagonist in David Fitz. On many levels, his character is a masterstroke which reflects the dark energy and gritty sense of realism that underpins the novel as a whole. It’s not a quick read, coming in at over 600 pages but with a diverse cast of characters, impressive dialogue, interplay and an ingenious multi-layered plot Fix is one read that’s over far too quick.
Another superbly written and highly entertaining read from Golvach, Fix is sure to delight his many readers and is recommended without reservation.
