5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous end to a grand thriller series! 13 Nov. 2014
By JLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is with great excitement and equal sorrow that I finished reading FEAR CITY, the novel that may well conclude forever the riveting supernatural thriller series that features my very favorite serial character, the much-imitated but never equaled Repairman Jack. This particular novel completes the fascinating revelatory Early Years Trilogy preceded by COLD CITY and DARK CITY. In this final installment, young Jack stands upon the precipice of becoming the down-low "fixer" his fate has decreed. It is the dead of winter in New York City in the year 1993, and the nation is not yet cognizant of a wave of terror that is silently building into a tsunami that will bring down the World Trade Center buildings in 2001. When a brutalized body of a woman washes up on an Astoria beach, who could possibly understand that this incident is a foreshadowing of a deadly jihad that Muslim extremists are determined to bring into the United States? Jack will soon realize that the dead woman is inextricably linked to events that have already occurred, most notably his recent run-in with the secret Ancient Septimus Fraternal Order and their high-end call girl ring. In this--perhaps the darkest tale of the Repairman Jack series--death is everywhere: the death of some of Jack's closest friends, and the deaths of some of his worst enemies by his own hand. Justice for innocents at all costs, this is what transforms Jack into the Repairman who will rain hell upon those who prey upon the hapless and the helpless who cannot seek justice through normal channels. Get ready for a bleak and terrifying tale told from multiple viewpoints at a breakneck pace--this is a finale that won't disappoint. Bravo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not without its flaws, but fans will be more than satisfied and enjoy the last ride with Jack 15 Aug. 2015
By Josh Mauthe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
With Fear City, F. Paul Wilson brings his Repairman Jack "early years" trilogy to an end, to say nothing of the character, who's moving into retirement for a while. It's hard not to feel that retirement might be the best thing for Jack; as much as I dearly love the character and his story, Jack has become so entwined in his mythology and the complex plotting of the series that it's hard to let him cut loose in the way that made the early entries in the series so much fun. At its best moments, the "Early Years" trilogy in general and Fear City specifically manages to recapture that sense of fun; at its weakest points, though, it feels like more of the same, a rich and exciting character whose life is so dictated by fate that there's not much room for his great personality. That problem gets compounded somewhat in Fear City, when the plot begins to align with real-world events in a way that never quite settles right for me. (Without spoiling much, those who had issues with Wilson's decision to incorporate 9/11 into the saga's arc may have similar issues with Fear City.) Add to that Wilson's constant use of Muslim terrorists as one-note villains and a slew of characters who all seem defined by their ethnicity, and you have a book that shouldn't really work, and honestly gets genuinely troubling and borderline offensive at times. And yet, somehow, Fear City still works as a great piece of entertainment. Part of that is Wilson's gift for plotting; it's genuinely exciting to see Wilson put the pieces together, as a couple of big reveals here legitimately shocked me, and left me smiling as I realized how carefully he plotted out this trilogy. Part of that is his knack for pacing and action, both of which come through in spades as everything builds to a climax that brings all of the book's threads together. And, to be sure, a lot of it is Jack, whose raw inexperience, enthusiasm, and personality still anchor a book every bit as well as it did back in The Tomb. Fear City (and the "Early Years" trilogy as a whole) isn't my favorite Jack story. It's filled with flaws, Wilson's fatigue with the character shows a bit, and the mythology ends up crushing some of the fun. But for all of that, it's a last run with a great character, and Wilson delivers in a way that counts, showing us some of Jack's formative experiences that legitimately feels like a flashback and not just "Jack with less wrinkles". It's not a place to start for newcomers, and it's probably a set of the series that's more for fans than for casual readers. But who reads the Jack books and doesn't become a fan, I ask you?

4.0 out of 5 stars A well deserved finale for one of the most unusual and interesting heroes of modern times 22 Jan. 2015
By James Tepper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
FEAR CITY is the last of what I'll call the CITY TRILOGY and with it, FP Wilson bids adieu to Jack ("just Jack") for the last time. Yes, I know we're heard this before at least once, but this time I have a feeling that it might be for real. On the other hand, at novel's end, Jack is only 24 but Jack is somewhere in his mid-30s at the beginning of THE TOMB, so I suppose that a few more prequels to the main sequence are possible.

FEAR CITY is really just the ending of the same tale started in COLD CITY and continued in DARK CITY, even though the three novels span a period of roughly 3 years (coincidently (?), the same length of time that the main sequence takes to get from THE TOMB to NIGHTWORLD. There is plenty of foreshadowing of the ultimate cosmic nature of things that will evolve in the main sequence that will slip right by anyone who has not read all the Repairman Jack books, which is why I disagree with FPW himself who says in COLD CITY that this is an excellent place to start all the RJ novels. I think THE TOMB is the place to start and then read straight through the entire sequence, perhaps stopping every 3 or 4 novels to insert one of the 3 YA Young Jack novels. That or just read the main RJ series first, then the Young Jack Trilogy and finishing up with the CITY TRILOGY.

There are no coincidences and everything is connected, as FPW has stated many times. FEAR CITY begins with the murder of one of Jack's ex-girlfriends that in FPW's inimitable style leads to a conspiracy of grand proportions that Jack has to figure out and stop to save potentially thousands of lives. It's a grand finale to perhaps the most extraordinary series I have ever read. I'll miss Jack et alia - they all seem like old friends (and enemies) by now, but I guess I can always go back and start at the beginning and read them again.

4.0 out of 5 stars like all of the Repairman series 3 Dec. 2014
By ECP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very satisfying end to this trilogy. There was a couple of interesting reveals that certainly harken to what we learned in Harbingers, and a few still interesting additions to the back story that didn't quite ring right, in tune, etc. In the end, like all of the Repairman series, this one is entertaining and a welcome addition. Thank you F. Paul.
