"If, as the author s note suggests, this may be the last Repairman Jack adventure, Wilson has certainly sent the series off with a bang." "Publishers Weekly""

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.
