Schauplatz ist das zaristische Rußland einige Jahre vor der Oktoberrevolution, zu einer Zeit, da ein radikaler Antisemitismus, geschürt von religiösen Fanatikern und politischen Spekulanten, zu brutalster Unmenschlichkeit ausartet. Jakow Bok, der »Fixer«, ein jüdischer Gelegenheitsarbeiter, gutmütig und naiv, verläßt nach persönlichen und religiösen Enttäuschungen sein Dorf, um in Kiew sein Glück zu machen. Aber er wird von der Geschichte zum Helden, zum Märtyrer ausersehen, ohne daß er sich dessen bewußt wird: ein kleiner Junge wird ermordet aufgefunden, und die Juden werden für die Untat verantwortlich gemacht. Jakow Bok wird als Vertreter einer verhaßten und verkannten Minderheit zum Sündenbock gestempelt, auf den die Krisenstimmung einer ganzen Gesellschaft abgewälzt wird. Jakow wird verhaftet wegen eines Verbrechens, das er nie begangen hat. Jahrelang erträgt er Einzelhaft, Verhöre, Hunger, Terror und Mißhandlungen, weil er an die Macht der Wahrheit glaubt.

A diamond-smuggling plane en route to Miami is blown off course by a hurricane and crashes in the Jamaican Blue Mountains. The crew dies, and a small team of smugglers sets out for Jamaica with the cryptographic keys needed to open the state-of-the-art digital safes on the plane. In an ‘it seemed like a good idea at the time’ moment, the team leader gives teenager Janet Martin the bag with the keys to carry through Miami International Airport security in the hope of avoiding suspicion. After passing through security, Janet is attracted to the desk by an offer of free tickets to anywhere in the world in exchange for her seat on her overbooked flight to Jamaica. Excited, she accepts the offer and leaves the airport for a hotel, still carrying the smuggler’s bag. The next morning she catches her new flight but in her haste leaves the bag at the hotel. The smugglers then spend the next three months searching for Janet. They want their bag and they desperately want their diamonds. The teenager is kidnapped from a Jamaican hotel, leaving her parents frantic with worry. A special police unit takes over the investigation, but Mr. and Mrs. Martin suspect something is wrong as the investigation stalls. With nowhere else to go and no-one else to ask, the Martins turn to The Fixer for help… The Fixer is a work of crime fiction that will be enjoyed by fans of James Patterson, Jeffrey Archer and Michael Crichton.
