Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After half a dozen appearances in short stories and novelettes, Repairman Jack returns in his second novel. Legacies involves Alicia Gordon, MD, a young infectious disease specialist working with HIV-infected children, who inherits her father's house after his death in a plane crash. At first she wants nothing to do with the place — in fact, she wants nothing to do with anything connected to her father. But then her ne'er-do-well half-brother Thomas shows up, offering an astronomical price for the house. Puzzled, Alicia refuses. Thomas then engages a high-priced law firm to contest the will.

Trouble is, Thomas hasn't got a dime to his name. Obviously he has some rich backers... backers who play very rough: everyone Alicia hires to learn why and to whom the house is so valuable winds up dead.

But Jack does not understand.

If she's going to live to learn the truth, she'll need the help of a specialist.

She'll need Repairman Jack.

Jack assumes the reason behind all the violence and secrecy is simple greed. But when he runs into vicious American mercenaries, a Saudi Arabian member of something called Iswid Nahr, and an enigmatic hitman hired by a shadowy Tokyo keiretsu, he realizes this is bigger than he ever imagined. Maybe too big: the Clayton house hides a secret that can change the world.

Review:

"Wilson's fans won't be disappointed." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"F. Paul Wilson is a hot writer, and his hottest, and my favorite creation, is Repairman Jack. No one does this kind of weird meets crime better than Wilson. Gripping, fascinating, one of a kind. That's F. Paul Wilson and Repairman Jack." Joe R. Lansdale

Review:

"Repairman Jack [is] a Byronic hero fans have begged to see again for more than a decade. Legacies is a righteous follow-up....The book is a lot of fun, and Wilson has promised that Jack will be back soon." Rocky Mountain News

Synopsis:

Repairman Jack isnt your average appliance repairman—he fixes situations for people, often risking his own life.  Jack has no last name, no social security number, works only for cash, and has no qualms when it comes to seeing that the job gets done.

Dr. Alicia Clayton, a pediatrician who treats children with AIDS, is full of secrets.  And she has just inherited a house that holds another.  Haunted by painful memories, Alicia wants the house destroyed—but somehow everyone she enlists to help ends up violently killed.  The house holds a powerful secret, and Alicias charmless brother Thomas seems willing to do anything to get his hands on that secret himself.

But not if Repairman Jack can find it first!
