Jack is hired to find a legendary Japanese sword, a katana stolen from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and brought to New York City. Central characters include the members of a weird Japanese cult, a young Japanese businessman (who is the brother of a character killed in Legacies), and his three Yakuza bodyguards, plus Hank Thompson, the Kicker cult leader from Bloodline. The cult, the businessman, the Yakuza, and the Kickers are looking for the sword as well.

Following Jack's usual m.o., he maneuvers all sides into a bloody melee from which he plans to waltz away with the fabled katana. Of course, when things don't go as planned, Jack must improvise (and he hates to improvise).

By the Sword takes F. Paul Wilson's trademark breakneck pacing and interweaving storylines to a new level. Download and start listening now!

    " Sweet! Nerve wracking and fun. Spellbinding seems applicable. "

    " A Repairman Jack novel that ties several different Jack adversaries-an evil sect from the Black Wind novel, my favorite F Paul Wilson novel; the kickers; and Mr. Osala which is an anagram for Rasalom, a Japanese conglomerate- in an adventure to retrieve a sword forged from a primary metal, and rescue pregnant Dawn. Gaekon (sp) appears and Abe and Julio, several familiar characters. Gia, Jack's love interest, and her daughter Vicky usually seem out of place and nearly superfluous to the plots, and are my least favorite characters. Except for them, I enjoyed the story, and the underlying tale of the Hidden History and the man who dreams the history, Mr. Wilson conveys the story well. "

    " This novel picks up right where Bloodline leaves off and features some of the same characters. Central to this story is the Matsumune Gaijin, the name given to a rare Japanese sword (Katana). This particular sword was forged from a meteorite in the 14th century by Matsumune for a "foreigner" (Gaijin). Jack is hired to locate and obtain the sword which was recently stolen on Maui and taken to New York City. Jack's not the only one after the sword--the others are Hank Thompson, the leader of the "Kicker" cult; a mysterious Japanese cult, the "Kakureta Kao", and the Chairman of a large Japanese holding company, the Kaze Group. Pretty interesting storyline with Jack meeting Glaecken, a nearly-immortal combatant in the fight against the "Otherness". "

    " Another great RJ story. I wish I had known about the tie-in with the novel "Black Wind." I've had it sitting on my shelf for a couple of years. "
