The Tomb review õ eBook or Kindle ePUB

F. Paul Wilson ☆ 3 free download

Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend Gia Repairman Jack doesn’t deal with electronic appliances he fixes situations for people often putting himself. This novel has a lot of modern 80 s thriller sensibilities with a can do fixer focused mainly on character study and definition mostly in the same way that horror novels do it Righting wrongs giving up close and personal Justice to those who escape the lawWith a supernatural twist Hindu RakashasIt sounds pretty cool actually but my personal expectations were along the lines of a proto modern UF and it is It just happens to be MORE focused on character study and interpersonal dynamics Good for what it is and if you prefer that kind of thing It s a decent horror I suppose but it happens to be perfectly average as one unless you give bonus points for using the idea of Rakashas as the primary storyI ve read a lot of things like this however I enjoyed the exploration of Kali and Hindu mythos well but I might want to point at Dan Simmon s Song of Kali as a bit horrific and fascinatingThis one however is a modern thriller and should have a lot of ongoing appeal I ll continue the series to see if it continues to evolve There s a number of books behind this one Final grade Above average Solid

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 Jac. I have a new best friend and his name is Repairman JackWith a style reminiscent of Travanian or John D MacDonald F Paul Wilson describes the urban fantasy euivalent of his off the grid anti hero Wilson also demonstrates his libertarian values in a protagonist that would make Poul Anderson or Heinlein proudWhile this can be seen as a far out version of a Travis McGee adventure urban and contemporary fantasy fans will be drawn to its supernatural ualities Jack is on the trail of an ancient Indian evil that is threatening paying clients the girl he loves and his own hide in this very enjoyable 1984 publication that could also be considered in the genres of horror thriller or science fictionWhatever label a reader chooses I think we can all agree that this is a fast moving and fun speculative fiction page turner Jack fixes things and we re not talking about electric toasters or smoothie blenders Jack handles problems related to human interactions As in the old Goodfellas line Hey Vinny d you fix that ting Yeah Paulie that problem is solved But he s not an organized mobster he s an independent contractor As a matter of fact in many ways Jack departed from modern day society years ago he lives outside of civilization but in plain sight he pays no taxes deals only in cash has no legitimate identity besides the succinctly stated although evasive moniker Repairman Jack Or just JackWilson s prose is clean and fast this moves like a fast runner lithe and smooth I ll be returning for fun with Jack

read The Tomb

K 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 hom. The only book I have read in the Repairman Jack series and I think the lastRepairman Jack is a below the radar fixit guy that repairs problems for people Although he s supposed to be cool and dangerous he comes across as kind of an idiot man child to me He has all these ridiculous methods for keeping his identity secret yet he invites a strange woman up to his apartment early on in the book He goes to the same bar every single time to interview clients and shops at the same store near his house Not exactly below the radar in my bookJack watches old movies late into the night in an apartment filled with odd pieces of furniture old toys and antiue kitsch In the morning he wakes up and eats several bowls of some kind of cold cereal kids eat Except for the cold blooded killer part he sounds like Tom Hanks character in BigThis book is chock full of all the conventional characters you know the uirky weapons dealer that can get the hero his flame thrower in the middle of the night the friendly bar owner that allows Jack to use a private booth for business the love interest that is repulsed by what Jack does for a living but just can t keep herself from falling for himSo the only remotely unconventional thing about this book is that it is an odd pairing of mediocre examples of two different genres the detectivethriller and horror Jack has to fight some nearly immortal Indian demons and a one armed disciple of Kali Not a good book and I wish I had those hours back
