A Repairman Jack Novel

Repairman Jack (Volume 10)

F. Paul Wilson

Forge Books




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.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.


Chapter One

"Hey, Jack, can I bother you a minute?"

Praise for Harbingers

“The plot moves briskly but never recklessly, the dialogue is salty and witty, and the characters have enough dimension to elevate them above the genre pack. Jack, introduced more than 20 years ago, is aging gracefully.” —Publishers Weekly on Infernal

“If you're a lover of horror fiction, vampires, and early Stephen King novels, take note: Midnight Mass is the best thing to come along in years.” —Rocky Mountain News

“Repairman Jack, the fix-it man who deals in the marginally supernatural, returns in another out-of-this-world adventure. . . .Naturally, things get very weird very fast, and in no time Jack must summon all of his skills to escape certain death. A worthy addition to the Repairman Jack series.” —Booklist on Infernal

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

“F. Paul Wilson is a great storyteller and a thoughtful one.” —David Morrell

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

“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 on Hosts
