Repairman Jack is back! An anonymous mercenary, with no last name and no social security number, Jack has thrilled a veritable army of readers ever since his bestselling debut in The Tomb. Jack can fix any problem, supernatural or otherwise, for a price. Now, in his latest gripping adventure, he takes on two cases at once.

The first involves a nun being blackmailed by someone who has photos of her she doesn't want made public. What's in those photos, she won't say, but with her meager savings just about exhausted, she hires Jack to help her.

The second seems straightforward enough, as an elderly woman hires Jack to find her missing son. But to locate his quarry, Jack must infiltrate the inner reaches of the Dormentalist Church, a secretive, globe-spanning cult whose members include some of the biggest and most powerful names in entertainment, sports, and politics. Ruthless in its pursuit of critics and enemies, the Church hides a sinister agenda known only to its ruling elite.

But Jack can be ruthless, too, going to darker lengths than ever before as he crisscrosses the two fix-it jobs to settle the deadliest of scores!

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

This little jaunt was a departure from Jack’s SOP of meeting prospective customers in a place of his choosing, but he didn’t expect any problems this go-round. Beekman Place was hardly a Manhattan trouble zone.

The day was so nice he’d decided to walk. No big deal. Only a couple of miles from his apartment, but a big jump in rental price. A cab ride would deprive him of this beautiful day.

Autumn was strengthening its grip on the city: cooler temperatures, gustier winds...sweater weather. Jack’s was a cranberry V-neck, worn over a blue-and-white plaid shirt and

Praise for Crisscross

“Fans who prefer Wilson’s medical thrillers, like Sims, will nonetheless find delight here.”—Kirkus Reviews on Crisscross

“There are some writers who, once they settle into an ongoing character, become complacent and happily just write and rewrite the same two of three books over and over again. And then there’s F. Paul Wilson, whose Repairman Jack series seems to get better as its hero gets closer and closer to his ultimate fate in Wilson’s previous Nightworld…Wilson never lets the pacing lag, using short and punchy chapters to keep the reader turning the page…Crisscross is a new addition to the rich mythology of Repairman Jack. If you haven’t made the acquaintance of wither Wilson or his signature character, here’s a terrific place to start. And if you have, Crisscross is another great adventure into inner-city weirdness.”—Fangoria

“Repairman Jack novels are always fun to read, but this thriller, though also quite entertaining and exciting, is much darker than usual. He solves the nun’s problem, but the results are not what he or she expected forcing him to take an amoral position with the blackmailer. The Brady problem is simply world threatening. For those who know Jack will know that F. Paul Wilson provides another fantastic reading experience.”—Futures Mystery Anthology Magazine on Crisscross

“Good stuff, with a nasty twist at times, and Jack’s usual efficient methods of correction.”—Chronicle
