The ninth Repairman Jack novel begins with a tragedy that throws Jack together with his brother Tom, a judge from Philadelphia. They've never been close and Jack, the career criminal, soon finds that he adheres to a higher ethical standard than his brother the judge.
Determined to get to know his brother better, Tom convinces Jack to go on a wild treasure hunt together. Armed only with a map pointing the way to a desolate wreck off the coast of Bermuda, the brothers come across something much stranger, and much more dangerous than mere treasure.

"F. Paul Wilson is a great storyteller and a thoughtful one." (David Morrell)
"The name is Jack, Repairman Jack, and it’s a name worth looking up next time you want a great supernatural thriller." (Fangoria)
"A worthy addition to the Repairman Jack series." (Booklist)
Probably if I had nothing else to listen to. Good light story that moves along at a good pace.
When Jack's brother Tom finally does right by his brother and take responsibility for his own actions.
In the beginning of the book Jack's father is shot at the airport. He tried to save people when the shooting started but was unable. This was a gut wrenching scene, not just because the father dies but also because they had just reconciled after many years.
This is one of the better Repairman Jack books. I would put it at the same level as Gateways which until now was my favorite.
Sure have enjoyed this series up to now. Fun plots with plenty of action. There is a sci-fi feel to much of it. I enjoy a bit of the out there. The performance is also excellent. I will continue to listen through the series.
I've been reading / listening to this series for years and it's still one of my most favorite. If you haven't read Repairman Jack then you really should you won't be disappointed .
I enjoyed this story because it brought us a little deep we r into who Jack is and why. Just when you think you have it figured out, Mr Wilson throws a curve ball and keeps you wanting more. Not predictable which keeps the pages turning.
Jacks brother is a guy you love to dislike, although they may look alike, there are significant differences. Not to spoil the story so I will finalize by reiterating good story and as usual the narration is spot on.
One of the better Repairman Jack books
The twists and multiple events. Jacks on a few cases with minimal time.
Excellent ...man of true talent
I was going to take a break from the series, but now I'm looking for the next book
