|F. Paul Wilson’s Repairman Jack may be one of dark fiction’s most infamous characters. Repairman Jack has “fixed” situations for those in need of a very special kind of supernatural justice in 15 novels (starting with The Tomb), as well as the recent Young Repairman Jack series. Dark City is the second book in the Repairman Jack: The Early Years bridge novels, with Jack in his early 20s and confronting the forces working to wreak unwelcome changes at his favorite bar.||
It's February 1992. Desert Storm is raging in Iraq but twenty-two-year-old Jack has more pressing matters at home. His favorite bar, The Spot, is about to be sold out from under Julio, Jack's friend. Jack has been something of a tag-along to this point, but now he takes the reins and demonstrates his innate talent for seeing biters get bit. With a body count even higher than in Cold City, this second novel of the Early Years Trilogy hurtles Jack into the final volume in which all scores will be settled, all debts paid.
