Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
With great power comes great responsibility, or so goes the old adage.
For Corrigan Bain, the leading man of best-selling novelist Gene Doucette’s latest offering, Fixer (The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House), this sentiment only scratches the surface.
Blessed (or perhaps cursed) with the ability to see roughly five seconds into the future, Corrigan can’t “fix” everything bad before it happens—though he has spent his life trying to. But with an otherworldly serial killer on the loose, a former lover who happens to be an FBI agent knocking down his door, and an increasingly troubled psyche, Corrigan’s “gift”—and his insistence upon protecting it from prying eyes—is being put to the test. Now, Corrigan must face long-standing horrors, confront the possibility that he may be going mad, and find a killer that no one can see.
A skillful and arresting amalgam of sci-fi, horror, mystery, and romance that early reviewers are heralding as a “must-read,” Fixer defies the traditional conventions of genre fare. Prepare to second-guess everything you thought you knew about superheroes—and your own (mis)conceptions about what it would be like to see the future before it unfolds.
“This is the kind of book you give to someone who doesn’t read ‘this kind of book,’” says Doucette. “While Fixer is a straight-up thriller, it’s really about the consequences of being a hero, and the complexity of doing the right thing.”
Fast-paced, chilling, and emotionally charged, Fixer explores:
- Past, present, and future: how much of who we are is decided by who we have been and who we might become?
- “Superheroism” and the troubling consequences that come alongside it.
- Objective morality as a loaded gun.
- The surprising, funny, macabre perils of knowing what the future holds.
