Jack finds that nobody can be trusted - and that few people are what they seem. Can you imagine a new chemical compound, a nonaddictive designer drug that heightens your assertiveness, opens the door to your primal self, giving you an edge wherever you compete, whether on the street or the football field, in a classroom or a boardroom? What happens if it releases uncontrollable rage and makes you a killer? Repairman Jack has been tearing up the urban adventure scene ever since he was introduced in the New York Times best seller, The Tomb.

A Repairman Jack Novel
It starts off simply enough. Doesn't it always?
Jack has been on hiatus since the tragic events in Harbingers. With his beloved Gia's encouragement he dips his toe back into the fix-it pool. Christy Pickering's year-old daughter is dating Jerry Bethlehem, a man twice her age. Christy sensed something shady and sinister about him, so she hired a private investigator to look into his past. But the PI isn't returning her calls. Will Jack find out why?
Central characters include the members of a weird Japanese cult, a young Japanese businessman who is the brother of a character killed in Legacies and his three Yakuza bodyguards, plus Hank Thompson, the Kicker cult leader from Bloodline. The cult, the businessman, the Yakuza, and the Kickers are looking for the sword as well. On September 11, , a man drifts in a boat off lower Manhattan as the twin towers burn. He removes a small box from his pocket and presses a button.
As he waits for the south tower to collapse, he thinks: The vast majority will blame the collapse on the crazy Arabs who hijacked the planes and the Islamic extremists who funded them - the obvious choice. A few will notice inconsistencies and point fingers elsewhere, blaming the government or Big Oil or some other powerful but faceless entity.
No one - absolutely no one - will guess the truth behind the who and why of this day. His tormentor has warned Munir not to report the kidnapping of his family, or they will pay a terrible price. Jack is backed into helping Munir despite his ongoing involvement in the cosmic shadow war between the Ally and the Otherness. Or perhaps because of it. Repairman Jack is one part Travis McGee and one part the Saint, an enigmatic antihero without identity, working outside the system. Jack's moral imperative is sometimes questionable but always leads him into the heart of darkness and beyond.
Repairman Jack is a Mr.
Fix-It who isn't afraid to break the law in order to help people who are willing to pay for his services. Jack sticks to his own code though, never trusting any of his clients without first perusing the situation for himself firsthand. Jack is an everyman who makes sure nothing of his persona is memorable or stands out in any way -- not his looks, his dress, his car, or his demeanor. Now that Jack has his own home page he's able to advertise his talents on the Internet while remaining out of sight. His latest case involves the missing Melanie Ehler, an "expert" on conspiracy theories who has vanished without a trace.
She reappears only once over the television, her disembodied voice urging her husband, Lew, to find Repairman Jack because only "he would understand.
He attends a conspiracy conference with Lew and is immediately swept up in the bizarre world of paranoia, where every guest has a different theory as to the world's woes: UFOs may be from outer space or the center of the earth, the government may be in league with aliens or may be covertly fighting them, or perhaps all our troubles are simply caused by Satan. Before her disappearance, Melanie Ehler was working on GUT -- her Grand Unification Theory, one that would tie all unexplained machinations together under the umbrella concept of a chaotic force known as "The Otherness.
A demonic creature almost kills him in the hotel basement even while he's being scrutinized by the leader of the conference, Professor Roma, who seems to know more about Jack than anyone alive should. Also thrown into the plot are the "men in black," who may be involved with a hideous mutilation murder on the premises or might be Jack's only allies when the Otherness is finally unleashed.
