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 by 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. "

    " 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 by 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. "

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