    Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances. He fixes situations for people, often putting himself in deadly danger. His latest project is recovering a stolen necklace, which carries with it an ancient curse that may unleash a horde of Bengali demons. Jack is used to danger, but this time Gia's daughter Vicky is threatened. Can Jack overcome the curse of the yellow necklace and bring Vicky safely back home?

    Story

    A fascinating story in an unexpected setting???the author does a good job tying an old Hindu curse to modern day New York.
    Even though some of the retrospective chapters might get a bit boring, there is enough action to keep the listener engaged and on edge.

    It???s only a pity that the next stories in the series are not available on Audible, as I really wanted to listen to more of Repairman Jack???s adventures.

    When the Rho Project’s lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project’s alien technologies is finally over. The world is wrong. In Switzerland, scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider have discovered a new threat, a scientific anomaly capable of destroying the earth - and only Rho Project technology can stop it.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    Anyone with more experience.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    One review for all three books, I guess. I just don’t think they deserve more.

    This is the final book in a series of three where the plot is supposed to come to a logical conclusion with the help of a number of sci-fi gimmicks and CIA training.
    Unfortunately, it feels as if the author forgot about at least a third of the plot lines he started, mostly neglected the evil heroes from the previous two books and completely botched all science he could, thus losing all potential credibility.
    I still can’t figure out why a spaceship couldn’t carry live crew on a wormhole transit, but aliens and others could just jump about through gateways, no harm done, even though the gateways were supposed to be wormholes themselves in the first place…
    Also, how come the admittedly clever Dr. Stephenson ended up so unerringly brilliant without being ‘improved’ by the second ship and without an active connection to the Rho ship? Furthermore, if he had somehow managed to memorise all Rho ship science on his own, why did he need all the research staff on the Rho project for so many years?

    Frankly, I believe this book (as well as its two predecessors) would have benefitted enormously form a serious dose of professional copy-editing. I’m not saying it wasn’t done, but it looks as it was done by some amateur. I’ve read many authors’ first published works and have rarely encountered any with such poor writing, character and plot development.
    Which, in all, is a pity, as the premise is quite intriguing in itself.

    Story

    This should be categorised as a romance novel, despite the forensic bits and the gory autopsy details.
    The author adds way too many repetitious details about the nonsensical thoughts of the main character that could have been left out without harming the main story one bit. There are also many factually incorrect parts regarding to technology, especially when describing computer interactions.
    I guess the editor was asleep when going through the book. Otherwise, it would have been about a third the current length and probably a much better value as a forensic thriller.

    Being a coroners assistant means that Cameryn has seen more gore than your average seventeen-year-old. But even Cammie is shocked when Kyle ONeil, the most popular guy in school, discovers the gruesome corpse of their English teacher murdered in his own bed. As Cammie gets involved in the case, she finds herself drawn to Kyle, and considers trusting him with the secret that she cant even tell her father.

    Story

    There are definitely some interesting ideas in the book, but the plot is shallow overall and it???s very easy to predict what will happen next.
    Another reason for giving a low rating is that???for such a short book???the author often goes into unnecessary detail about the feelings and thoughts of the characters, while more work should have gone into making the mystery more mysterious.
    Finally, the focus on catholic believes and ceremonies was too strong for my taste in a (supposedly) science-based book.
