"I'm into Roman history" - Author @knntom #humor


THE FIX by Keith Nixon
Genre: Crime / Humour
Buy on Amazon 

Murder. Theft. Sociopaths. And Margate. Just another day in banking then...
It’s pre crash 2007 and financial investment banker Josh Dedman’s life is unravelling fast. He’s fired after £20 million goes missing from the bank. His long-time girlfriend has cheats on him, then dumps him. His only friends are a Russian tramp who claims to be ex-KGB and a really irritating bloke he’s just met on the train. His waking hours are a nightmare and his dreams are haunted by a mystery blonde. And to cap it all, he lives in Margate…
Just when Josh thinks things can’t get any worse his sociopathic boss — Hershey Valentine — winds up dead and he finds himself the number one suspect. As the net closes in Josh discovers that no one is quite what they seem, including him, and that sometimes help comes from the most unlikely sources…
Part fiction, part lies (well, it is about banking) and excruciatingly funny, The Fix pulls no punches when revealing the naked truth of a man living a life he loathes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Keith Nixon has been writing since he was a child. In fact some of his friends (& his wife) say he's never really grown up. Keith has a sales role for a tech company meaning he gets to use his one skill, talking too much. However he spends much of his time by the sea in Broadstairs where Charles Dickens briefly lived & was the inspiration for The 39 Steps.
Keith has published a crime / humour novel The Fix  & has a historical fiction series on the way. He has also written comedy and drama screenplays. His measure of achieving success is when he can ditch socks, watch and tie forever.
Oh yes, & he likes to read. A lot. Crime, thrillers, humour, mystery, fantasy as long as they're well written of course...
