Présentation de l'éditeur

This riveting supernatural thriller, billed as the penultimate novel in Wilson's long-running Repairman Jack saga (Ground Zero, etc.), finds Jack, a principled mercenary who lives off the grid, still tussling with the evil Order of Septimus, whose members hope to open the door to a malignant occult force known as the Otherness. To do so, they partner with several techno-terrorist cults to shut down the Internet, which further serves the interests of Jack's nemesis, the sinister Mr. Osala, who's grooming a newborn child tainted with the Otherness to play an adversarial role in the events unfolding. Wilson gives his multilayered plot an invigorating aura of cosmic creepiness as he deftly weaves together subplots and themes that have been snaking their way through the past dozen novels. Fans who've been following this series for the past quarter-century will be pleased to find that it still abounds with ingenuity and surprises. (Publishers Weekly)

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.

Who do the world’s most exciting authors turn to when they need a shot of adrenaline?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Repairman Jack Rocks! 10 juillet 2010
Par J. L. Comeau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The action comes fast and furiously in the newest Repairman Jack novel from F. Paul Wilson. Although it grieves me mightily to say that the Repairman Jack series is soon coming to a close, FATAL ERROR rocks the fabric of the RP cosmic shadow war with this tale of pulse-pounding adventure that pits Jack against the darkness that might well bring down the darkness on mankind and the universe entire. A man named Munir Habib is being forced to perform acts of public ignominy in order preserve the lives of his American wife and son, who have been taken hostage. Although the kidnappers seem only to want Habib to suffer disgrace and humiliation, Habib is helpless to report the kidnapping if he wants his family to survive. Enter Repairman Jack, a "fixer" whose talents are required when the usual methods of law enforcement are useless. Jack is pushed into fixing Habib's situation and, what with Jack's involvement in the ongoing cosmic shadow war between the Ally and the Otherness, he has his hands even more full than usual. Dawn Pickering's continuing bizarre pregnancy finally comes to a belated end when she delivers...something. She only gets a quick look at the baby before it is taken from her--and what she sees frightens her. When she is told that the baby has died from overwhelming birth defects, Dawn doesn't believe it. Jack doesn't believe it, either. So much is happening and events are coming together. The Septimus Order and a homicidal clan called The Kickers are busy working to extinguish the Internet and, if they do, they will succeed in paving a pathway for the Otherness, which will overtake and destroy our plane of reality. Can Jack pull together all the threads that are dangling over his head like Swords of Damocles? Hang on to your hearts, TombRats, because you're going to get an aerobic workout without leaving your reading chair! FATAL ERROR is shipping now, so get your copy from Gauntlet Press before they're all gone! And be sure to check out [...] for more information about this superlative supernatural thriller series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "...it's not dark yet but it's gettin' there..." 18 octobre 2010
Par James Tepper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
"Fatal Error" is the 14th and penultimate Repairman Jack Novel. Author F.P. Wilson tells us in a prefatory note that the series will end with number 15, tentatively titled "The Dark at the End. Previous comments by the author indicate that last RJ novel will serve as the final lead-up to a "heavily revised "Nightworld", the truly shock and awe capstone of his "Adversary Cycle" that was first published in 1993. Both the Adversary Cycle and the RJ series, as well as some of Wilson's short stories (some available free on the internet) comprise "The Secret History of the World", a long and involved tale that revolves around an eternal struggle between two über-God-like entities, called the Ally and the Otherness, for dominion over all sentiently inhabited worlds in the multiverse.

In the early RJ novels, The Secret History took a back seat to Jack himself, and his role as a fixer for clients that for various reasons, could not go to the authorities. The emphasis was on action, and Jack's clever approaches to solving problems with the least amount of violence (sometimes that last part didn't quite work out). There was always some tie-in with Ally/Otherness battle, but it was not in the forefront. For the last 4 or 5 RJ books however, and in "Fatal Error", it is the Secret History that takes center stage. Whereas all the RJ books have been self-referential, this feature is now greatly expanded, and includes all previous RJ novels, the whole of the Adversary Cycle, the two YA Jack titles that have been published so far and several short stories. Fatal Error, as well as the last several books, are therefore much less self-contained and stand-alone than the earliest RJ novels. Rather, they comprise one very long novel broken up into book-length chapters. For this reason I do not recommend trying to read this as a stand-alone, or to jump into the series here. Do yourself a favor and go back to The Tomb and read forward from there, or better yet, look up the Secret History of the World and read all the novels (about 20) in the sequence that Wilson gives.

The stakes were already high at the outset of Fatal Error and the tension rises steadily throughout. There is a client, and a job, but it is mostly all backstory to the main event. All our favorite RJ characters, past and present, are here (one of them bites the dust) and the inexorable path to the final battle as all the players move into position is clear. Like the other RJ books, Fatal Error was a great read and kept me up late. The writing is still crisp and the plot moves along briskly. I am most curious to see the what "The Dark at the End" looks like, and most of all, to see how he revises "Nightworld to pull all the little bits and pieces of the whole RJ (and YA RJ) and Adversary Cycle series into a single congruent and cohesive whole.

tick...tock...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is more like it! 16 octobre 2010
Par Derek Grimmell - Publié sur Amazon.com

As we all know, the last few Repairman Jack novels contained more exposition and less of the suspense, intertwined plot threads, and human interest that made the series so interesting. Much the same thing happened in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and for much the same reason: exposition comes before denouement in any series novel.

Here comes the denouement!

This is the penultimate novel in the 15-volume series, and it feels a lot more like the best books from early in the series, with a little extra punch. The tension builds -- although it won't finally be resolved until the next, final book in the series -- the plot threads intertwine, and there's even a sub-plot or two, as in the older books. I missed the intertwined sub-plots in By the Sword and Ground Zero. They added a lot to Jack's character. That feel of watching a real person engaged in both human and superhuman events makes a welcome return in this volume, in my opinion. Jack is by turns noble and ruthless; the noosphere, the Lady, and the world are in ever-increasing danger; and Ras -- I better not say his name -- inches toward victory against our outmatched heroes while they watch each other's backs. I especially enjoyed Jack taking on even a minor side-project, as these always added to the realism of the characters and their world. There hasn't been a good "repair" mission for a while, and it brought back the fun feel of the first parts of the series.

I read By the Sword and Ground Zero, enjoyed them to some extent but felt it was more of a duty to read them, and now the payoff has begun. Best $14 I've spent on Amazon in quite a while, and Wilson has guaranteed I will buy the final volume on the first day of issue.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Jack saves the Internet? 23 octobre 2010
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This most recent Repairman Jack thriller is more of the same ol' same ol', meaning that in reading it you're once more drawn into Jack's dark world of paranoia and the supernatural and those street level "fixes" that he specializes in. It's always awesome catching up with our favorite urban hero-for-hire. Except that, to be honest, F. Paul Wilson has us so close now to the end that I found it hard at first to settle into this book. The writer has vowed on a sacred stack of something sacred and stacky that FATAL ERROR is the penultimate entry in the Repairman Jack saga. Can F. Paul Wilson pull it off? The cosmic war between the Ally and the Otherness can't possibly fizzle out, can it? And how will Jack's role be revamped? I can't wait for THE DARK AT THE END. I can't wait for the apocalyptic (but heavily revised) NIGHTWORLD. I'm getting ahead of myself.

It's fantastic that Jack is back to handling one of his fixes. From THE TOMB on to most of the subsequent Repairman Jack novels, the writer had balanced Jack's in-over-his-head paranormal adventures with his simultaneously taking on of a more down-to-earth case. Except that, of late, Jack's thrillers have focused predominantly on the central ongoing supernatural arc, and so you lose that bit of grounding. Thankfully, the things that endear Repairman Jack to everyone are still very much present: his ability to deliver exquisite payback on them what done wrong; his self-reliance and his sense that no matter how daunting the problem, that Jack will find a way to resolve it. It's a definite draw that he looks so nondescript he could be you or me. And Jack lives off the grid, so he exudes that aura of mystery; he can't depend on society's normal checks and balances. Jack gets by on his wits and his self-taught skills and that bump of paranoia.

The space between these novels is set in spans of mere months or even weeks. Jack nowadays is persistently perturbed, stuck in a mood of low-level alarm. He knows he's smack-dab in the middle of an eons-long conflict waged between two cosmic forces: the malevolent Otherness and the Ally (less of an Ally, really; "indifferent towards humanity" is more on the money). We've learned some time ago that Jack's life has been warped by this cosmic war. He's been told that there are no more coincidences in his life. For someone as take-charge and resourceful as Jack, it's friggin' frustrating to feel so helpless. Sucks to be a pawn. Then there's the Otherness's supernatural agent, its big gun, Rasalom. It's frightening how powerful Rasalom is. Jack is restrained from taking a crack at him, and this at Mr. Veilleur's behest. Jack's going after Rasalom could ruin everything, Mr. Veilleur cautions Jack. If you'd read the Adversary Cycle, then you already know who Mr. Veilleur really is, which is someone not to be effed with. So Jack sits on his hands, out of respect for the old dude. But so frustrated.

Much of Jack's focus is devoted to the impending apocalypse and how to prevent it. He'd rather not handle this one fix, but the guy whose family had just been abducted comes highly endorsed by Jack's friend. So Jack, heart not in it, gets sucked in. And what starts out as a routine fix rapidly becomes threaded into and advances the overarching narrative. FATAL ERROR even ties into REPRISAL (a novel in the Adversary Cycle). But the main thrust of FATAL ERROR concerns an attempt to murder the Internet. And this leads us to the noosphere.

Back in the 19th Century a Jesuit named Pierre Teilhard de Chardin espoused a theory that claimed that "the growth of human numbers and interactions would create a separate consciousness called the noosphere." It turns out that Chardin was right. And it turns out that traffic thru cyberspace feeds into the noosphere. The Lady emerged from the noosphere. If you'd read past Repairman Jack stories, then you know that the Lady happens to be all the women accompanied with a dog with whom Jack has had interaction. The Lady comprises the third significant party - even if she's only a local presence - in this cosmic conflict. And she's in humanity's corner. Rasalom would like nothing more than to end her. And since the Internet provides such a huge makeup of the noosphere, shutting down the Internet should devastate the Lady, maybe even end her.

I won't lie, I'm pretty fed up with the Kickers sub-plot, no matter its relevance. The thread with this shady self-help group is getting on a bit too long for my taste, and the same thing with Dawn Pickering's arc, and, yep, I do realize that F. Paul Wilson is trying to position things juuuuuust so for the big finale. It's just that things have been on standby for some time now. I found myself impatient with them chapters without Jack. Thank goodness for his childhood pals, Weezy and her brother Eddie (from the JACK: SECRET HISTORIES trilogy). I appreciaate the last act in which Gia and Vicky are featured. And hooray for those all too few segments in which Repairman Jack springs into action (there are only three action sequences of note here). Jack himself remains a fascinating character, as indomitable as ever, and there's no rush like the rush you get when reading about Jack doing whatever it takes to protect Gia and Vicky. But things have been coming to a head for a bit now, and I'm salivating to get to the juicy stuff. Leave off the Kickers and Dormentalists and all the other Rasalom bench-players and secret cabals. The timeline to doomsday approaches fast and I can't wait for F. Paul Wilson to level up. In the end, in spite of the interminable tease, I can't help but recommend FATAL ERROR. Because when all's said and done, anything with Repairman Jack in it is a damn good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Keeps On Ticking 15 novembre 2010
Par Fred Rayworth - Publié sur Amazon.com

In a way I have been regretting this book as it is next to the last in the Repairman Jack series. I hate to see it end. At the same time, I have been afraid that Mr. Wilson would start straying too far from the path, the reason I picked up the series in the first place. However, in Fatal Error, we get to see a bit of the old Jack as he takes on a fix it that he discovers ties in with his struggle against the Otherness.

About the first third of the book did seem to drag a bit. It was all about the buildup but with not that much action. Then as Jack takes on his fix it, things start to pick up and we see the old Jack, mixed in with his ever-developing confrontation with Rasalom.

Once things picked up, this was a great read. I particularly like the ending. My only worry is that Mr. Wilson will turn this into a 70's era movie and kill off Jack. I hope that doesn't happen as that will really blow the series for me. The way he ended this one gives me hope. I am looking forward to the final book and am crossing my fingers he won't take things in a bad direction.

This series continues to be a great ride. I highly recommend it.
