Repairman Jack returns in a sequel to the New York
Times bestseller, The Tomb!
Jack has been tearing up the urban adventure scene ever
since he was introduced in the New York Times
bestseller The Tomb. As his fans know, Repairman Jack
doesnâ€™t deal with electronic appliances; heâ€™s a situation
fixer, no matter how weird or deadly a situation may be.
Repairman Jack has no last name, no Social Security number,
and no qualms when it comes to getting the job doneâ€”even if
it means putting himself in serious danger.
fifteen years of separation, Jack is contacted by his
long-lost sister, Kate, to help her track down the source of
her girlfriend Jeanetteâ€™s sudden trance-like behavior.
Referred by a mysterious stranger who gives only Jackâ€™s name
and phone number, Kate is shocked to find out that the
â€śrepairmanâ€ť she seeks is none other than her little
brotherâ€”and not altogether happy to find out what little
â€śJackieâ€ť has been doing with himself for all these years.
With Jack leading the way, Kate finds out that Jeannetteâ€™s
behavior can be traced back to the experimental therapy she
underwent for a brain tumor: now Jeannetteâ€™s brain and those
of several other subjects are infected by a mutated virus.
Like any good virus, it wants to multiplyâ€”and if Jack canâ€™t
stop the virus in its path, there will be deadly results.
Meanwhile, Jack is traveling on the 9 train when
suddenly a passenger goes berserk and starts shooting at
randomâ€”leaving Jack no choice but to throw himself into the
spotlight by putting the shooter down. Worse for Jack, one
of his fellow passengers is a reporter for the local
tabloid, The Light, who sees Jackâ€™s heroism as his
ticket to journalistic stardom. The reporter promises to
make Jack a celebrity hero, a household nameâ€”which could
mean the end of Repairman Jack as we know him.
