Book Description

15 Mar 2011 Repairman Jack Novels (Book 2)
Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances-he fixes situations for people, often putting himself in deadly danger. His latest project is recovering a stolen necklace, which carries with it an ancient curse that may unleash a horde of Bengali demons. Jack is used to danger, but this time Gia's daughter Vicky is threatened. Can Jack overcome the curse of the yellow necklace and bring Vicky safely back home?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tomb? What Tomb? 27 July 2003
Format:Paperback
OK, one thing first, there is no tomb in the book. Strange but see the author's own website for the explanation.
With that out of the way this is a cracking book. On the surface it is a simpler plot than some of his others but, trust me, there are depths to be plumbed. No-one, but no-one can write a "real life meets the supernaturual" thriller better than F. Paul Wilson and, of course, it introduces Repairman Jack to the world. This is the first book in which this character appears and therefore gives more of his background and the events which made him what he is, the ultimate anti-hero for today.
In addition the book ties in with virtually all the others, a tie in which deepens as the series advances in time.
My final word? Read this book, then read all the others!

4.0 out of 5 stars A CURSE FROM THE PAST INVADES THE PRESENT... 12 Feb 2005
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The horror genre is enriched by this book, which is inventive and original. Though the book is plot, rather than character, driven, it does not suffer for its lack of character development. The reader is kept too busy thinking about the plot to worry unduly about character development. Such is the power of this unusual and compelling horror story.
The plot is relatively simple. The horror reached across the world from India to the United States. A heinous defilement and murders in a temple in mid nineteenth century India by British soldiers unleashes a curse which is to follow the descendants of the leader of the attack. Coupled with that curse is an entourage of creatures of unimaginable horror that have once again risen to do the bidding of one who would right past wrongs. But with great power comes great responsibility.
Enter Repairman Jack, a man who works to put to right what once went wrong. A man who earns his living by his wits and by his ability to defend himself to the death, if necessary. If one has a problem, he will fix it. When he agrees to help a one armed Indian gentleman, Kusum Bahkti, retrieve a necklace that is a priceless family heirloom. How priceless, he will soon find out.
Repairman Jack is thrust into the middle of a series of almost
inexplicable events....mysterious disappearances, rank odors, unusual substances of Indian origin, and a necklace that holds the key to an ancient horror. He then encounters what would be the most formidable foes he would ever encounter. He must find a way to vanquish these hellish creatures or risk losing those whom he loves.
Highly original and inventive, this is a pretty well written horror story that should keep even the most jaded of readers turning its pages. It is also the book that introduced the character of Repairman Jack, a popular character who would go on to have a series of books revolve around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi, Jack! 22 May 2012
By TrueJDK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found Repairman Jack thanks to, of all things, former professional wrestler Lance Storm, who regularly endorses the books. I thought I'd give it a shot, to see how they are.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the first book. More surprised to see it was originally conceived as a one-off, and that it was written some considerable time ago. The book has a very recent feel.
Jack is one of those classic characters - heartless, cold, and brutal at times, with a heart of gold, which never descends into cliche or parody. He is, surprisingly, identifiable.
Wilson has a deft touch with building characters, developing relationships, describing action scenes, and mixing adventure with a touch of the fantastic.
I can't recommend this highly enough, and I'm looking forward to reading subsequent volumes.
