Overview

CRISSCROSS by F. Paul Wilson

Repairman Jack is back! An anonymous mercenary, with no last name and no social security number, Jack has thrilled a veritable army of readers ever since his bestselling debut in The Tomb. Jack can fix any problem, supernatural or otherwise, for a price. Now, in his latest gripping adventure, he takes on two cases at once.

The first involves a nun being blackmailed by someone who has photos of her she doesn't want made public. 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 seems straightforward enough, as an elderly woman hires Jack to find her missing son. But to locate his quarry, 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!

Dr. Wilson always enraptures me with Repairman Jack! This story's no exception! I'm working my way through the whole saga and side-trails! Wish there was MORE!

Not the best "Jack" book but certainly a good read. If you've been following the Repairman Jack books and have finished "Gateways" you will find this to be an interesting read. This reminded me of Conspiracies, in particular the way the book opened. Almost the same setting as both Harbringers and Conspiracies. This is a good read but a little hard to follow at times. One saving grace was the fact that we learn a little more about the history of the Otherness and the Adversary (If you've read "Gateways" you will understand this). Good book but not as good as "Infernal." That was a good read!

Another gritty novel of Repairman Jack. Somewhat darker than the others but with a very satisfying ending. Things are getting more and more convoluted and, although "Infernal" is a bit of a bridge book, don't skip it. "Harbingers" will tie a lot together and the dark events of Crisscross will come back into play.

Few know that Repairman Jack exists except his pregnant girlfriend Gia, her daughter, and a few other souls that he trusts. People turn to Jack when they need problems solved without the police involved. Jack fixes things for cash only as he has no money or paper trail to follow. Jack seeks a way out of the cold without attracting attention so that he can marry Gia............................. While he ponders his problem, two cases come to him. Maggie the nun says that someone is blackmailing her with illicit pictures of her with her lover; she wants jack to destroy the pictures before the Church finds out. Maria hires Jack to learn if her son is okay since she lost contact wit him when he joined the Dormentalist Church whose founder Luther Brady believes that burying certain designated pillars in specific locations will fuse this world with its mirror realm leading to paradise regained................................ Jack destroys the pictures with a little help from a hacker, but when Maggie informs her lover that they no longer have to pay the extortionist, tragedy occurs. Jack learns about the pillars and what will happen once Brady finishes planting them; he must stop the false prophet at all costs to save the world as we know it....................................... Repairman jack novels are always fun to read, but this thriller, though also quite entertaining and exciting, is much darker than usual. He solves the nun¿s problem, but the results are not what he or she expected forcing him to take an amoral position with the blackmailer. The Brady problem is simply world threatening. For those who know Jack will know that F. Paul Wilson provides another fantastic reading experience....................................... Harriet Klausner
