Dockside is burning, and it's up to everybody's least favorite Army-surplus cyborg to fix it.
It starts when somebody takes a hit out on The Chairman, and quickly spirals into a mystery that takes Roland and his hyper-kinetic partner Lucia far from New Boston and into the depths of unregulated star systems. To save his home, Roland will need to figure out who would risk upsetting the delicate truce in Dockside before the peace crumbles and the streets run red with blood. Unfortunately for the pair of them, it could be anyone!
Everybody wants to control the docks and everybody hates the Chairman. Is it the Pirate King of frontier space? Is it the gigantic mega-corporation who is tired of the docks being harassed? Is The Combine finally falling apart? Could it be...Rodney the Dwarf? It's probably not Rodney, but Roland will need to ask hard questions of some hard people. It's a good thing Roland is the kind of guy who knows how to get answers.
The guns will blaze and the fists will fly as the galaxy's least likely duo of problem-solvers hop the next ship to deep space and teach a whole new crop of mad science gone awry that wherever The Fixer goes:

Unapologetic Guy Book
Another solid and straightforward entry from Andrew Vaillencourt. This book has some interesting political wrangling, a smattering of romance and dangerous flirting, and an antagonist twist. But at it's heart, it is a fast-paced action book. This is an unapologetic story for the stereotypical, beer-drinking dude. And the characters are PERFECT for that kind of universe. Actually, the characters are the reason I kicked this from an enjoyable four stars to an outstanding five.
I listened to this as an audiobook, and Jay Ben Markson continues to impress. Great pacing and character representation. I especially got a huge kick out of his representation of the few parts with the "blood-thirsty action junky" named Bernadette.
