Audible Editor Reviews

When Will Burleigh is diagnosed with throat cancer he must decide the lengths to which he will go to keep himself alive. After a mysterious healer convinces him to take a trip to explore a number of sites from the ancient Mayan civilization, Will uncovers something that will change his perspective forever.… Performed by Brian Sutherland, The Fifth Harmonic is a thrilling pause-resister. Sutherland nails the voice of Will Burleigh, perfectly portraying all of the dark thoughts that cross the mind of our terminally-ill hero.

Publisher's Summary

From F. Paul Wilson, the best-selling and acclaimed author of the Repairman Jack series, comes a lightning-paced, whip-smart thriller sure to please both die-hard fans and newcomers to Wilson's spellbinding world.

Will Burleigh is a hard-nosed, no-nonsense M.D. totally dedicated to the health and welfare of the patients in his practice. But when he himself is diagnosed with throat cancer, he can’t bear the idea of undergoing massive radiation and radical surgery that will leave him permanently disfigured - all with no guarantee he will live at all.

Having made peace with his decision to die, Will is nonetheless convinced by a former patient to visit a healer, a mysterious and beautiful woman named Maya who claims she can help him, but only if he opens himself up completely to her and the harmony of the world around him.

To find that harmony, she insists, Will must follow her to Mesoamerica, to the home of her people, to search for what she calls The Fifth Harmonic. Will agrees, but he secretly brings along what he calls a “Kevorkian Kit” to give him a quick end in case his rapidly spreading tumor gets the best of him. Maya too, has her secrets, and as Will unravels them, he begins to fear he might have made a terrible mistake.

    "A very poor follow up to the Repaiman Jack series"

    Anyone who has read the Celestine Prophesy will recognise the similar conceptual idea of both books. I really enjoyed the Repairman Jack series & jumped to buy this one barely reading the summery which is how I bought all the other RJack series. However I was severely disappointed by it & wished I'd spent my money / credit on something else.

    I can't believe the 4 & 5 star reviews, they really mislead me. This is not a book that comes anywhere near the Repairman Jack series. This was really a disappointment. I wrote a review for one of those books that was the antithesis to this one.
