Repairman Jack 8.
by F. Paul Wilson.
OVERVIEW: Paul Wilson's 8th Repairman Jack novel, CRISSCROSS, Jack is back in New York and working on two unrelated fix-its. The first involves a nun being blackmailed by someone who has photos of her that she does not want made public. Who or what is in those photos, she won’t say, but with her meager savings just about exhausted, she hires Jack to help her. The second fix-it seems straightforward enough: Elderly Maria Roselli hires Jack to find her missing son. He joined the Dormentalist Church years ago and seemed happier than she’d ever seen him. But it’s been weeks since she’s heard from him and she’s worried. The deeper Jack digs, the more certain he becomes that the Dormentalist Church has a secret agenda hidden not only from the public, but from most of its members as well. The suspenseful finale reveals a side of Jack that is darker than we’ve ever seen as he crisscrosses the two fix-it jobs to settle deadly scores. 500 pp.
