Publisher's Summary

Repairman Jack isn’t your average appliance repairman - he fixes situations for people, often risking his own life. Jack has no last name, no social security number, works only for cash, and has no qualms when it comes to seeing that the job gets done.

Dr. Alicia Clayton, a pediatrician who treats children with AIDS, is full of secrets, and she has just inherited a house that holds another. Haunted by painful memories, Alicia wants the house destroyed - but somehow everyone she enlists to help ends up violently killed. The house holds a powerful secret, and Alicia’s charmless brother Thomas seems willing to do anything to get his hands on that secret himself.

But not if Repairman Jack can find it first!

What the Critics Say

“Jack is righteous!” Andrew Vachss“The Tomb is one of the best all-out adventure stories I’ve read in years.” (Stephen King)

“Repairman Jack [is] a Byronic hero fans have begged to see again for more than a decade. Legacies is a righteous follow-up....The book is a lot of fun, and Wilson has promised that Jack will be back soon.” (Rocky Mountain News)

“F. Paul Wilson is a hot writer, and his hottest, and my favorite creation, is Repairman Jack. No one does this kind of weird meets crime better than Wilson. Gripping, fascinating, one of a kind. That’s F. Paul Wilson and Repairman Jack.” (Joe R. Lansdale)

    "Not for thinkers!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book is chock-full of stupid "facts" and poorly thought out and/or contrived scenarios. I found them all too distracting and had to abandon the book in spite of trying to finish it. I found the first in the series somewhat entertaining, but I will not try any more in the series.

    Story
    "Jack! The ultimate antihero."
    What made the experience of listening to Legacies the most enjoyable?

    Wilson has that knack of engrossing the reader/listener. He makes the character's world so believable that you just slip in alongside them as if you are standing behind them. He is not one to over-complicate stories by being too descriptive or by trying to baffle you with science. You just sit there and enjoy the roller coaster rides!


    What other book might you compare Legacies to, and why?

    It's difficult to compare with another book as I think that the character of Jack is so unique. But I would recommend that anyone looking to get into the series start with 'The Tomb' a truly must read book.


    What does Christopher Price bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As I have read elsewhere on the site, 'a good story teller should be that you do not think of them when listening', and this is true of Mr Price. He brings life to all the characters without being over the top.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Without giving too much away, but towards the end when the doctor opens up to Jack....brought a tear to my eye.


    Any additional comments?

    The Repairman Jack series is one of the series that once you have started you cannot stop listening too.
