Repairman Jack has been tearing up the urban adventure scene ever since
he was introduced in the New York Times bestseller The Tomb. As
his fans know, Repairman Jack doesn’t deal with electronic appliances, he’s a
situation fixer, no matter how weird or deadly a situation may be. Repairman
Jack has no last name, no Social Security number, and no qualms when it comes
to getting the job done, even if it means putting himself in serious danger.
After fifteen years of separation, Jack is contacted by his long-lost
sister, Kate, to help her track down the source of her girlfriend Jeanette’s
sudden trance-like behavior. Referred by a mysterious stranger who gives only
Jack’s name and phone number, Kate is shocked to find the “repairman” she seeks
is none other than her little brother, and she’s not happy to find out what
little “Jackie” has been doing with himself all these years. With Jack leading
the way, Kate finds out Jeannette’s behavior can be traced back to the
experimental therapy she underwent for a brain tumor. Now Jeannette’s brain and
those of several other subjects are infected by a mutated virus. Like any good
virus, it wants to multiply, and if Jack can’t stop the virus in its path,
there will be deadly results.
Meanwhile, Jack is traveling on the 9 train when a passenger goes
berserk and starts shooting at random, leaving Jack no choice but to throw
himself into the spotlight by putting the shooter down. Worse for Jack, one of
his fellow passengers is a reporter for the local tabloid, The Light,
who sees Jack’s heroism as his ticket to journalistic stardom. The reporter
promises to make Jack a celebrity hero, a household name, which could mean the
end of Repairman Jack as we know him.
