Kurzbeschreibung

August 2006 Repairman Jack Novels (Buch 4)
Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances--he fixes "situations" for people, situations that usually involve 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?

Reading a Repairman Jack novel seems, at times, a guilty pleasure; it's astonishingly easy to inhale the pages, like eating potato chips. A firm-jawed Mr. Fixit hero with a cryptic past--crunch! Crimes that go beyond (way, waaay beyond) the norms of traditional law--smack! A liberal sprinkling of screwball comedy and nasty supernatural beings--now that's tasty! Good, crispy fun, indeed. But F. Paul Wilson's tight plotting and appealing characters manage to elevate potato chips to the realm of haute cuisine (or at least a satisfyingly solid meal), and his latest, All the Rage, is no exception.

Everything's rosy when Nadia Radzminsky takes a dream research job at GEM Pharmaceuticals: she'll be working for her professional idol, Dr. Luc Monnet; her fiancé is one of GEM's top salespeople; she's got all sorts of high tech toys to play with; and she'll get a million-dollar bonus if she can just figure out how to stabilize GEM's most promising molecule (dubbed, ominously enough for students of Norse mythology, Loki). But clouds quickly appear on the horizon in the form of Milos Dragovic, a Serbian mobster with a short fuse, a big wallet, and a profound interest in Loki's future. Nadia suspects Milos is blackmailing her boss, and she hires Jack to find out what's going on.

What Jack finds out isn't pretty: Loki is leading an underground life as Berzerk, a hot, new street drug that brings out the user's most aggressive behavior, frequently with deadly consequences. And Milos may be pushing Monnet around, but the good doctor isn't objecting too strongly to the payoff. But when Jack gets closer to the source of the mystery molecule, events take a very personal turn: Loki is derived from the blood of rakoshi, those otherworldly and decidedly vicious demons Jack had sworn to exterminate in Conspiracies. With his family threatened by both the rakoshi and the vengeful Serb, Jack must take on both the monster and the mob.

All the Rage has the necessary ingredients for success, including a snarkily amusing subplot involving a Brooklyn junkyard owner who's also out for Milos's blood (Jack has to keep toning down his client's eager revenge plots, and his substitution of industrial sludge for knives in one such plan is particularly amusing). Dedicated Wilson fans will rejoice in the new addition to the series, and neophytes will scramble to unearth the earlier installments. --Kelly Flynn -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

""The Tomb" is one of the best all-out adventure stories I've read in years." --Stephen King (President of the Repairman Jack fan club)"Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. . . . hugely entertaining."--Dean Koontz"F. Paul Wilson is a great storyteller and a thoughtful one."--David Morrell"A riveting combination of detective story and horror fiction . . . .This thriller is fast-action fun!" -"Publishers Weekly "on" The Tomb""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"Call a plumber when the sink is clogged, the cops when you've been robbed, but when the you-know-what hits the fan, it's time to call Repairman Jack. . . .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Repairman Jack at his very best 3. Januar 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I reread the book after more than 10 years. It's even better considering the little details and interconnections that pop up from time to time when reading it after having read all of the Repairman Jack novels (except The Dark at the End, I'm saving that one for dark days to come). What I like most about Wilson's book is the deep and thoroughly characterization and the believable plot - despite the slight supernatural elements. I still have to read a book by Mr. Wilson I DON'T like...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Effort 16. Oktober 2000
Von Konrad Kern - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is another one of my rare 5 star books. This book was pure entertainment from start too finish. Written as a sequel, but reads just great by itself. I love supernatural thrillers and no one can beat F. Paul Wilson in this genre. If you want to read a feel good book where the bad guys always get their due, and in original ways, this book is for you. One great read!
Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jack's Back In Grand Style! 13. August 2000
Von Brad Vautrinot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to agree with Susan's review above and add that I think this is the best Repairman Jack story yet. This limited edition is bound in red leather, signed by the author and Stan Wiater, a fine author in his own right, who wrote the afterword. There is an interesting and enlightening chart at the end of the story detailing how all of Mr. Wilson's stories intertwine around the Grand Unification Theory. Accompanying this fine book is a limited edition chapbook called Demonsong written by Mr. Wilson.
Unwillingly thrust into a world of a dangerous designer drug, Jack also finds himself confronting an old enemy from the recent past. Loaded with action, suspense, humor, and Jack's ever present dilemma of delicately maintaining a romantic relationship with a woman who disapproves of his "lifestyle", F. Paul Wilson has once again given us an excellent story loaded with thrills and serpentine plot lines. Rumor has it that there are at least two more Repairman Jack books coming in the near future. Hopefully, this is true. Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen All The Rage is a Winner! 29. Juli 2000
Von John H. Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read all the Repairman Jack stories so far. All The Rage is loads of fun, with lots of action. I highly recommend it.
FPW expertly weaves this story into his Grand Unification Theory. Dialogue is funnier than ever and Jack gets himself into more trouble than he's ever been.
The scenes involving a helicopter are hilarious. They reveal Jack's twisted (and brilliant) sense of humor.
The climax practically gave me a heart attack. But one of my favorite things about this book is that we see the character of Jack developing even more. He literally and figuratively goes BERZERK. It's frightening and fascinating to read that particular plot twist. Makes you wonder...
Demonsong, which comes with this special edition, is a terrific short story. Written in a different style, but still very intriguing. Makes me want to see more of Glaeken and Rasalom.
Thanks again FPW for a great read! I'm already looking forward to the next one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jack's Back 14. Dezember 2000
Von Jane Osnovich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Those of you not familiar with F. Paul Wilson do yourself a favor and buy this book. It is a perfect example of what a good writer should be. The story is fast paced, entertaining and engrossing. The characters are very well developed and real. Repairman Jack is one man you won't soon forget. Wilson draws you into Jack's world and shows you how close a man can come to losing everything. This is not a novel you just read, it's a novel you become involved in. I hate to give away the story line so I won't. Suffice it to say that Wilson has a distinct writing style that draws you into a world filled with characters, both real and supernatural, that you hope never cross your path. And others that you wish you only knew.
Those of you that are familiar with his work will not be disappointed. It seems that Wilson's writing is as sharp and gripping as ever. Repairman Jack is in top form in this novel and it's great to see the Rakoshi featured again. This is a fun book, a good action story with enough twists and turns and knuckle-whitening scrapes to keep you reading well into the night.
Definitely buy this book, buy one for a friend too. Share the joy this holiday season.
As an additional recommendation, get your hands on Wilson's earlier works, The Keep, Reborn, Reprisal, Nightworld, The Tomb and The Touch. Those books made me a lifelong fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Repairman Jack is back big time! 19. August 2000
Von Paul Legerski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Repairman Jack, Wilson's series character, returns to enact his special blend of vengeance and justice. Seems that there is a new drug, called Berzerk, that makes the user's strength and violence soar. The source of this new drug is an old enemy of Jack's past. The holder of this source is the basis for Wilson's edited HWA-sponsored anthology, FREAK SHOW.
Wilson's strength is not letting Jack do the same old thing time and again. Jack is evolving and realizing his place in his battle versus the Otherness, the ultimate evil in this world. Jack is asked by 2 people to check out a Bosnian gangster, one a researcher for a pharmaceutical company, the other a regular guy looking for vengeance. Both characters add local color and a unique outside experience of Jack and his methods.
Repairman Jack's hijinks to get under the skin of the gangster are the highlights here, as they are in all of the linked books. Wilson's imagination is used full force here....as elaborate as dropping tires and oil onto a houseful of party guests, to something simple like disabling a surveilance car.
Wilson's blending -in of his other novels and stories is masterful. You see characters and hints from his previous works to make a complete history. A great novel in a continuing series.
This edition also includes, at the end, an interview with Mr. Wilson that is informative. The artwork, by Harry O. Morris, is not the usual sketches but a kind of J.K. Potter meshing of images...very effective. Highly Recommended.
