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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wilson strolls into X-Files territory and makes it his own, keeping the action brisk and the level of suspense steadily rising.”

    San Francisco Examiner

  • “Wilson’s fans, who know to expect nonstop action and a hero who can seem a ‘cryptofascist comic book character,’ will no doubt be pleased by the more humanized Jack on display here, as well as an ending that packs an emotional wallop even as it sets the stage for his next eagerly anticipated adventure.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Maicke | 2/17/2014

    " A bit slow compared to some of the other books in the series. I was a bit annoyed at how long it took Jack to come around to realize what exactly was going on. Still a solid story, but newcomers to the series should probably start at the beginning as there are a number of elements and character developments that won't make much sense if you have not read previous books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tasula | 2/14/2014

    " It has been many years since I read Repairman Jack- I liked the earlier novels. But this one has elements I don't care for, and both Jack and the doctor seem a little dense. Based on how he operated in this book, it's hard to believe he could "repair" anything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 2/13/2014

    " I didn't feel that this one held up as well as some of the earlier books in the series. Without giving away too much plot, what happened to Jeanette and the others like her struck me as more of a stretch than what happened in the previous books, as the apparent cause in this one was something physical that caused supernatural results. There were also a few more coincidences than I could accept. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenji | 2/8/2014

    " I couldn't put it down. It was brilliant horror. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 1/29/2014

    " This was a better book than the previous one, but I have to be honest that it was difficult to suspend disbelief. There was a nice science fiction-like idea of viral ethics explored, but there was some really outlandish things as well. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 1/28/2014

    " I liked this novel, but would have loved it if not for the weak ending. The author churned out a even paced story. F. Paul Wilson's skills and style have matured as I've worked my way through the "Repairman Jack" series. Each of the books hook you and take you on a wild ride. It's a shame that the finale was "mailed in." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/21/2014

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ricardo | 1/19/2014

    " Not horrible but definitely a letdown compared to the previous Repairman Jack books. The plot seemed too scattered and maybe too ambitious and by the end of the book, I was reading to finish just because I had read that far but not because I could not put the book down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steeevil | 12/18/2013

    " Coolest Jack since Jack Bauer. Oh, Repairman Jack came first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 12/16/2013

    " This is my favorite Repairman Jack novel so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Turner | 12/4/2013

    " Another great story from Wilson, these books are a joy to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug Krenzee | 10/28/2013

    " I can't belive what happens in this book, poor Jack. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peg | 10/28/2013

    " This one was just a little too creepy to really enjoy - somehow a virus taking over people's minds and fixing them all together in a mind-meld cult with the only solution being to blow everyone to bits was just dark without relief. Might have to give dear old Jack a break for awhile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 10/19/2013

    " Great book! While not my favorite in the series, it still does a good job of moving the series forward and further developing Jack's character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 10/18/2013

    " Ask me for a review. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 9/10/2013

    " I love the character, Repairman Jack, but the stories are getting weirder and weirder. Lots of supernatural stuff, which is OK, but...weird. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clint | 9/7/2013

    " Best Repairman Jack Yet! Who is that Russian woman with the malamute? And will Jack believe her? I think he is starting to believe... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime Babb | 9/6/2013

    " I learned that I have quite a few repairman jack books to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristopher | 8/24/2013

    " More Repairman Jack goodness! Jack goes up against Milos Dragovic, a mysterious street drug called "Berzerk", and a pharmaceutical company in this one... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 8/1/2013

    " One of the best Repairman Jack books so far, but also one of the grimmest. Repairman Jack "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shreela | 7/11/2013

    " My absolute favorite of all the Repairman Jack series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Decaria | 7/2/2013

    " Another great book in the series. If you like Jim Butcher then you'll love F. Paul Wilson. Repairman Jack is the guy every man wishes he was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 rita.jane | 6/25/2013

    " As I started this one, thought I would return it after a few pages but eventually it got my interest. I always forget that this series is a bit of gritty sci-fi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Gibbons | 6/24/2013

    " The main plot is finally getting going! Crazy X-Files action! I'm just torn because I feel like I should have read some of the Adversary Cycle first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 6/11/2013

    " Great story. Love the involvement of Jack's sister. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 4/8/2013

    " Ok, so now I'm hooked on repairman Jack novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimbeattie | 3/20/2013

    " Another Repairman Jack novel. Still fun to read but the series is starting to get a bit stale. No longer a "must read" series for me. "
