Good, but so far my least favorite of any F. Paul Wilson novel I have read. I found it a little difficult to follow at times. Not sure why the itineraries for SESOUP were given, especially the Sunday one at the end. The only thing I can think of for the Sunday one to be listed at the end would be to indicate that the story didn't end with Conspiracies. That it would continue in a different book. The different conspiracy theories were interesting, bizarre, but interesting. I found too many unanswered questions. For instance, who killed Olive? Why? Why was her body mutilated so badly and was she still alive when it happened? What happened to the computer disks that Melanie gave her and what was on them? And who the hell are the MIB Twins? What is up with the sunglasses that didn't have lenses? If they weren't from the "Otherness", then where did they come from, who sent them, and what is their agenda? Why did the hole close up when they fell into it? What kind of "torch" did the one twin pass onto Jack? Not to mention, what kind of creatures are they anyway? What exactly happened in 1968 to cause the infant mutations and who was responsible for it? I just found parts of this book vague and disjointed. Which was strange considering the detail Wilson went into describing the different conspiracy theories.
I have loved all the other F. Paul Wilson novels I have read, but this one was a little disappointing. Where the others were "complete", with a beginning, middle and end, I felt that Conspiracies only had a beginning and middle, no conclusion or ending. Maybe the answers to my questions will be found in other Repairman Jack novels. I intend to read all of them because I love the character. How can you not love Repairman Jack?
