Repairman Jack doesn't believe a house can be haunted. But he's about to change that tune... In the borough of Queens, just across the river from Manhattan, two clever practitioners of spiritualist hocus-pocus use high-tech tricks to dupe their marks. Perhaps they're too good: they've lured too many clients from other mediums and are now under attack. Unable to go to the police for fear of exposing their own scams, they hire Repairman Jack to fix their problem.
Jack takes the job, figuring he'll straighten out the situation through one of his favorite pastimes: scamming a scammer. But soon he learns that this fix-it job may involve more than just professional jealousies. A sudden earthquake and a tortured scream mark the awakening of something in Menelaus Manor, something that used to be someone - an entity full of rage that was brought back for a specific purpose. But this entity has an agenda of its own....

"These are amazing. Where's this guy been hiding."
Absolutely. I'm not sure how I came across F.Paul Wilson, but I'm so glad I did. I love it when I find a good - no great - author & he turns out to have written 12 books in one series. I love Repairman Jack & I love the combination of fiction/supernatural/thriller which are my faves & I LOVE the fact that there are TWELVE books to read. I'm getting a bit worried though as I'm up to to book 6. Only 6 more to go. Then, god willing, with a bit of luck, ill find another great series
He can easily keep up with Dean Koonz & Stephen King & that's saying something. He perhaps better than Peter Straub.
He's very good although he doesn't change his voice much like some readers, you still get the different characters & the tension is there when needed.
Neither -I just loved it. An hour before a book is due to finish, I down load the next & I'm ready to start the next book when the Audible voice over at the end of the book starts. I'm ready to start the next book straight away.
I've said it all. These are must-read books. I've missed my favorite tv shows cause I just can't stop listening.
"My favorite repairman jack!"
Wilson is growing in skill. Others Amy say the plot is contrived and too well placed to be reality. But the addition of "no coincidences" rules that out. Plenty of plot twists. And very much enjoy the differing flavor of this book compared to his previous works in this series. Very well orated as well. All around great title.
"Jack's the man"
I liked this book very much. Many times I felt I was right there in the middle.
Light reading and very entertaining. This book was enough to make me want to try the whole Repairman Jack series.
