5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat for Repairman jack fans, 17 Jan 2005
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
yes, this is the book for connoiseurs of Jack, drawing as it does form other stories by F Paul Wilson, in particular The Barrens and even Nightworld itself. It starts with news that Jack's father has been the victim of a hit and run accident in Florida, and our anti-hero must leave New York and travel down to visit him. Wilson provides his usual tense atention-grabbing scene at the start of the novel, as Jack's false identity and smuggling abilities are put to the test as he is forced to take a plane in the high-security aftermath of 9/11. Now when even Repairman Jack is afraid of being highjacked in mid-air, something has clearly gone wrong in America...
Anyway, on arrival in Florida it becomes clear that this was no random accident, and that Jack's father has quite a few secrets of his own. Without giving too much away, there are some surprise appearances along the way, with some of the cast of Nightworld sneaking out for a look at our world...I'm talking about you and your kin, Lobster-Wasp, as well as the one whose name we dare not speak (or borrow). These events are clearly going to require a slight re-writing of Nightworld by Wilson, as the current text was written before these recent Jack novels and does not contain any reference to Jack having experienced the events of Gateways...however, I'm sure FPW will tie up the loose ends perfectly in what is the greatest saga in modern fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this series, 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I came upon Repairman Jack when I read The Barrens and Others, which was recommended by Charles De Lint in the Nov edition of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Digest that I subscribe to on the kindle. I'm now on about book 10/11 of this series and can definitely say they worth buying - and the price is reasonable to.

In this book you find out about Jack's father and meet another woman with a dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow and then some, 29 Mar 2012
By 
M. King (Preston, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
After the previous title in the Repairman Jack series being a bit hit and miss for me this was a startlingly good return to form.
As well as what would be a great standalone story in its own right we have some great progression in the overall arc and Jack finally facing the father he has made every attempt to avoid over the years.

Loves every moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love Jack, 27 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've not read repairman Jack novels before then your in for a treat. I've got every single one and they are all consistently good. Don't expect high literature, these are easy reading, but do expect to be educated, amused, excited and intrigued. You'll be drawn into Jacks unusual and often frighteningly strange world, and if you're like me you may leave somewhat inspired and addicted.

Excellent and worth the money. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys fantasy, horror, and a ridiculously intelligent and brilliant main character who is the ultimate good guy gone rogue.
