In the second to last installment in the series, Repairman Jack faces a set of interlocking conundrums, all of which could mean doom for humanity. By the best-selling author of By the Sword.

McMillan Palgrave

“Repairman Jack is one of my favorite characters--I'm full of happy anticipation every time I hold a new RJ novel in my hands.”

--Charlaine Harris, creator of True Blood

The End of the World is at hand!


Munir Habib's life has become a nightmare. His tormentor has warned Munir not to report the kidnapping of his family, or else they will pay a terrible price. A friend realizes something is terribly wrong and tells Munir he doesn't have to go to the cops. There's a guy who fixes situations like this-Repairman Jack. Jack is backed into helping Munir despite his ongoing involvement in the cosmic shadow war between the Ally and the Otherness. Or perhaps because of it. He's chafing at being forced into the defensive role of protecting the Lady, the physical embodiment of the consciousness of the planet Earth.

Meanwhile, the Septimus Order and the Kickers are seemingly working in concert on a plot to extinguish the Lady and open the way for the Otherness to take over our reality. To top it all off, Dawn Pickering finally goes into labor and delivers a baby she only glimpses as it's whisked away, and is terrified by what she sees. Later she's told the baby died, but she doesn't believe it. Neither does Weezy. Neither does Jack. All these interlocking plots mean doom for humanity. But Jack never gives up or gives in.

This was a really creepy book! With one or two software changes (variations on the ZMW attack), Wilson presents the blueprint for shutting down the Internet, mentioning systems that few are familiar with, but would accurately cause many problems. Hope he doesn't write a book on an Internet Kill Switch next?
