Publisher's Summary

Repairman Jack is back! Jack can fix any problem, natural or supernatural, for a price. Now, in his next gripping adventure, he takes on two cases at once. The first involves a nun being blackmailed. What’s in those photos, she won’t say, but with her meager savings just about exhausted, she hires Jack to help her.

The second: an elderly woman needs Jack to find her missing son. Jack must infiltrate the inner reaches of the Dormentalist Church, a secretive, globe-spanning cult whose members include some of the biggest and most powerful names in entertainment, sports, and politics. Ruthless in its pursuit of critics and enemies, the Church hides a sinister agenda known only to its ruling elite.

But Jack can be ruthless, too, going to darker lengths than ever before as he crisscrosses the two fix-it jobs to settle the deadliest of scores.

Repairman Jack doing what he does best

Where does Crisscross rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a good light listen. I just finished two Ludlum books and needed light fast paced and good so - Here it is...
Christopher Price did a great job narrating.

What other book might you compare Crisscross to and why?

It can only be compared to other Repairman Jack books. Wilson has a certain style and Jack can be a bit predictable but, without being a spoiler I did not expect this ending.

Which scene was your favorite?

The final scene with the church leader.

Any additional comments?

I was sorry for with the way it turned out for the nun. Not surprised though, I think the woman had some problems. Also did not expect what happened with the church founder - Wow! All in all this was a good listen. These books are not deep but they make a great listen and Jack is a good even if maybe a little shady hero.

Masterful

As usual, F.Paul Wilson wove a fantastic, enjoyable tale that highlighted his masterful ability to not only story-tell, but also his eye for detail and imagery. As a native New Yorker, I was so clearly able to visualize not only locations, but characters as well! Mr. Wilson doesnt seem to need to go into great detail to have his characters admired, likeable, hated, believable. In my opinion, his characters are never unchacteristically over the top. RMJ is one of my all time favorite characters. I am sorry for not discussing the plot itself, I was afraid I would give something away. Suffice it to say, when justice is dealt out, you may want to throw your hands up as well and say as I did: " Yes!! Finally!"

Unbelievably bad female voice

Would you try another book from F. Paul Wilson and/or Christopher Price?

Unfortunately I bought the whole series and I will have to endure Christopher Price LOW base female voices

What didn’t you like about Christopher Price’s performance?

His female voices that are lower in pitch than Jacks . They dont fit the story's description of the female character who is described as a 43 year old writer who is a "dream babe" yet Christoper's voice for her sounds like a gruff old husky man of 53 . I just found it torture to listen to . Really its the fault of who ever produced the audio book . The producer should have seen that Christopher was incapable of unwilling to do a female voice and got a female; to play jamie's part . It totally ruined the audio book for me .

Jack. The hero u hate to love!

This series gets better with each book. Jack is a sadistic but vindictive mastermind who u hate to love. The plot twists are beautifully intertwined to create a sometimes overly perfect flow. It is frightening to pull for a good guy who does so much killing. But you do anyway. And in the end you feel as vindicated as Jack does. If u liked any of the other handyman Jack books ... you'll love this one.

Great series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Crisscross to be better than the print version?

The narrator does a great job. Brings depth to the book.

What did you like best about this story?

It ties into "the Keep."

Mr. Wilson has really grown as a writer

I started with the prequel and have worked my way to this one. In my opinion the series started a little weak but entertaining. Over time, Wilson has gotten better and better and building complex plots with well planned surprises. In recent stories he's even "gotten" me a couple of times with surprises that I "should have seen coming" since the clues were all there. That's unusual for me. It's not perfect and if I wanted to pick at nits I could -- especially on some technical details -- but that's hardly the point. I'm not looking forward to the new narrator that is introduced later in the series.
