    J. C. Hallman: IMG One in the Oven; or, Why You Should Suck It Up and Meet Your Favorite Author



    At first, I was dead set against it. I would not try to meet Nicholson Baker while I was writing a book about Nicholson Baker. I had a good reason... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It starts off so simply: Jack, still feeling down after the tragic events of Infernal, is hanging in Julio's when a regular named Timmy asks him for help. His teenage niece has been missing since this morning; the police say it's too early to worry, but Timmy knows something bad has happened. Jack says he'll put the word out on the street. This innocent request triggers a chain of seemingly coincidental events that lead Jack into the darkest days of his life.

As has become evident in the series, Jack has been singled out, unwillingly, as the champion of one of the two supernatural forces contending for control of all human life on Earth. Neither of these forces are good or evil, just dangerous and amoral. They value and notice individual humans about as much as we do mosquitos.

Jack is desperate...and the last thing you want to do is make Jack desperate. That's when things begin to blow up and people begin to die.

A hang-onto-your-hat-and-heart thriller of triumph and tragedy that barrels along at F. Paul Wilson's trademark breakneck pace.

Review:

"This 10th appearance of Wilson's outside-the-box paladin (after 2005's Infernal) provides everything that fans of this excellent and frequently horrific series have come to expect. Repairman Jack, the New York City paranormal 'fix-it guy,' is approached by a regular at Julio's bar to find his missing teenage niece, Caitlin. Jack tracks her down, but not before some other apparently well-intentioned agents rescue her and discover Jack in the process. Caitlin's rescuers believe that Jack is the champion of the otherworldly force opposing a supernatural menace known as the Adversary, a role that Jack admits he has played in the past. As the Adversary begins picking off Jack's new allies, Jack's girlfriend and unborn child are endangered, but by whom is unclear. In this brisk update on the series, Jack must make some difficult decisions as he learns that the enemy of his enemy is not necessarily his friend. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Wilson has taken us down this evil road before — even Jack appears almost bored. It may be time to give the series a rest, despite its charms for those who like the blending of the crime and horror genres." Booklist

Review:

"Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages." Dean Koontz

Review:

"F. Paul Wilson is a great storyteller and a thoughtful one." David Morrell, bestselling author of Creepers

Review:

"The name is Jack, Repairman Jack, and it's a name worth looking up next time you want a great supernatural thriller." Fangoria

Review:

"If you don’t know Jack, you are missing one of the stranger, but better ongoing series in which every entry enthralls the audience, proving that Mr. Wilson is quite a storyteller." The Midwest Book Review

Review:

"Part hard-boiled detective novel, part Matrix and all fun, Wilson's latest and, perhaps, greatest kept me up all night. A pulse-pounding novel that grips you by the throat and doesn't let go even when it's over." Eric Van Lustbader, author of The Testament
