Kurzbeschreibung

30. September 2008 Repairman Jack Novels (Buch 3)
Repairman Jack, F. Paul Wilson's vigilante hero from the New York Times bestseller The Tomb, returns in a thriller that thrusts him back into the weird, supernatural world that he thrives in.

Looking for clues to the mysterious disappearance of leading conspiracy theorist Melanie Ehler, Jack attends a convention of bizarre and avid conspiracy theorists. It's a place where aliens are real, the government is out to get you, and the world is hurtling toward an inevitable war of good versus evil incarnate.

Jack finds that nobody can be trusted--and that few people are what they seem. Worse yet, Jack's been having vivid dreams that make him wonder whether he's headed for a clash with his own past--maybe The Tomb's evil rakoshi beasts aren't through with him quite yet.

Amazon.de

Don't bother calling Repairman Jack if your washing machine is busted. Jack is a fixer of a different nature: he investigates crimes that go beyond the norms of traditional law. In 1984's The Tomb, Jack tracked down a prized (and cursed) family heirloom; in 1998's Legacies, he sniffed out the sinister secret behind a man's last will and testament. The enigmatic sleuth makes his third appearance in Conspiracies. "I don't do missing wives," Jack protests at first, but the bizarre circumstances surrounding Melanie Ehler's disappearance convince him to help out the woman's distraught husband.

Melanie is a leading voice in the conspiracy-theory movement, a true believer that crop circles, UFOs, and even El Niño are all part of the same vast plot against humankind. She dubs this her "Grand Unification Theory," or GUT. One week before announcing the GUT theory to the world, Melanie vanishes and Jack is plunged deep into her weird world as he attends the conference where Melanie was due to speak. Jack is initially amused by the eccentricities of the alien abductees and Satanic cult survivors Melanie counted among her colleagues; but an apparently supernatural force, a murder, a disappearing corpse, and a creature straight from the bowels of hell put his skepticism to the test.

Conspiracies is another tightly plotted thriller from F. Paul Wilson, tinged with enough horror and supernatural suspense to please both mystery lovers and horror hounds. Repairman Jack reigns as one of the most alluring and mysterious private investigators in the business. --Naomi Gesinger -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Pressestimmen

“Repairman Jack is a wonderful character, ultracompetent but still vulnerable.  While there’s plenty of violence in Conspiracies, there’s also a lot of humor.”
--San Francisco Chronicle

“Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. . . .Hugely entertaining.”
--Dean Koontz on The Tomb

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

5.0 von 5 Sternen Repairman Jack is back and he is better than ever 22. Januar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
No database contains information on Repairman Jack, who applies unorthodox methods to fix problems for people. Jack blends so well into the scenery, no one notices him, let alone remembers seeing him. Though a pragmatic person anchored into the material plane, Jack has battled some supernatural creatures in his time.

Jack's latest case comes to him via his home page on the Internet, which allows the Repairman to advertise, but remain invisible. Lewis Ehlers desperately wants to find his missing spouse Melanie. She appeared on his TV screen while he watched the Weather Channel and appealed to him to obtain the services of Jack. The Repairman accepts the case and soon attends a conspiracy buff conference where Melanie is scheduled to make an appearance. Jack meets the usual crazies, but also senses a malignant supernatural essence trying to crash the barrier into this world. Only Jack can hope to stop the creature from succeeding, but his odds of surviving the counter is slim.

Anyone who has ever read a Repairman Jack tale wonders what makes the man tick? He appears to be a normal person just by the nature of his conversations with his friends, but the average individual does not spend an inordinate amount of time making sure no trace exists of his ever being anywhere. Thus, Jack remains one of the most enigmatic characters around as readers realize they don't know Jack. Placing this puzzling protagonist inside a non-stop, action-packed thriller like CONSPIRACIES leave the audience wanting more novels starring Jack. As with his TOMB AND LEGACIES, F. Paul Wilson provides the audience with a triumphant tale starring a quirky hero who deserves wide fan attention.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Conspiracies was a sad read. 25. Februar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I hate giving anything Dr. Wilson writes less than an A+. But here, his novel gets a B. I subtracted one point for the numerous missing words that made sentences incomplete (sloppy editorizing here).
The second subtraction comes from my dissapointment over the cop-out story FPW used to unify all these conspiracies. I did not expect him to revive the Rakoshi mythology. I guess I was disappointed that he didn't try to create a whole new Lovecraftian pastiche mythos/whatever to explain away this phenomena.
Also, the novel was too short, and too much time was wasted, I felt, in having characters getting whacked. I'd like to see more troubles for Repairman Jack, certainly lots more kidnappings of him, like the characters in DEATHLANDS, would pick up the pace. Also, I believe Jack should get a partner to work with him. He does not have the panache of a Remo Williams to pull off his whack-jobs alone. Even Remo has Chiun to relieve the monotony of just following Remo all over the place as he is busily knocks off people. A female or male character who he encounters, with similar background hence Monte Cristo drive, will keep Jack nimble, certainly preventing him from becoming a dull pedantic boy at the very least. Something [an immature bore] that I see Jack sadly turning into already.
Jack needs to grow, or die. Can FPW repair the Repairman Himself? Golly good gracious, Uncle Pete!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jack rules! 23. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
CONSPIRACIES puts Repairman Jack in the middle of a conspiracy theorists convention. That in itself is enough irony for me. Jack has a missing woman case. To solve it, he must subject himself to unbelievable theories and people. But the truth really is stranger than fiction. When Jack stumbles across the meaning of it all, it is one of the best moments in contemporary fiction. The only real problem I had with this book is that the time line is somewhat confusing. Wilson told me that it follows LEGACIES, which followed THE TOMB. He sprinkles mentions of previous Jack novels but it's not exactly clear which one, if any, is which. That aside, I love it that Wilson has another supernatural-type book out, I was getting tired of the medical thrillers he's been writing. The sequel to CONSPIRACIES should be great based on what Wilson has gotten Jack into here. Can't wait! Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A New Kind of Hero 1. März 2000
Von Tony
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I continue to be amazed by the Repairman Jack novels. "Legacies" was nothing like "The Tomb", and "Conspiracies" is nothing like the other two. Each one is a new experience with a different rhythm. I especially love the weird paranormal ingredients in "Conspiracies" that were missing in "Legacies."
What I don't get, though, is why a reader (see one of the other reviews) would want Wilson to remake Repairman Jack (whom Dean Koonts says is "one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction") into a Remo Williams retread. Some people just don't get it.
Don't listen, Mr. Wilson. Keep Repairman Jack just as he is: an original.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Where's the old Jack? 6. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Conspiracies" was a hollow read and a lame sequel to "The Tomb". I loved "The Tomb", read it 2 or 3 times since 1986. However, in "Conspiracies", too much time was spent on developing (or rather underdeveloping) characters that lacked any dimension, and in presenting too many dead-end subplots.
I felt it lacked the tension, excitement, and action from "The Tomb". And I didn't like the tease of a "grand conspiracy theory" that left me with more questions than answers. The ultimate revelation was disappointing.
I hope the next (final?) Repairman Jack novel will revive the character developed in the first book.
