Professional gambler, Johnny Chapman, plays the hand he’s dealt, but when he’s dealt a series of losers, he decides to up the ante with more money than he can afford to lose. Just when he thinks his life can’t get any worse, it does. The loan shark he owes the money to demands that he pay up and sends his goons after him. The man offers Johnny one way out—fix a race by fatally injecting the dog most likely to win. A piece of cake, Johnny thinks, until he looks into the big brown eyes of the beautiful dog, and the price suddenly seems too great to pay. Now Johnny’s on the run and the goons are closing in…

"The Fix" by Robert Downs is a non stop suspense story. Johnny Chapman has always been a gambler looking to make easy money. But, what is going to happen when he suddenly does not want to carry through with his part of the deal? Now, he is in over his head. He owes money to someone who is not going to let him get away. They are going to keep on chasing him until they get what they want. Will Johnny be able to get away? What are they going to do to him if they catch him? I give this book a 5/5.
