Infernal: A Repairman Jack Novel (Paperback)

The ninth Repairman Jack novel from F. Paul Wilson brims with murder, international terrorism, sibling rivalry, and a truly infernal device.

A mutual tragedy throws Jack together with his brother Tom, a judge from Philadelphia. They've never been close, and it doesn't take Jack long realize that's a good thing. Tom and he are opposites.

Still, Tom convinces Jack to go on a trip to get to know each other better. He has a map locating a wreck off the coast of Bermuda and wants Jack to help him find it. Reluctantly Jack agrees. But instead of treasure they find a strange object, part organic, part manmade, known as the Lilitongue of Gefreda. Ancient lore claims that it is a means "to elude all enemies and leave them helpless." The big question is, why does Tom want such a thing?

And if the Lilitongue lives up to the legend, where does it take you? No one seems to know. Matters take a bizarre and dangerous turn-no surprise for a Repairman Jack novel--when someone accidentally activates the Lilitongue.

“Repairman Jack is a wonderful character, ultracompetent but still vulnerable . . . Wilson strolls into 'X-Files' territory and makes it his own.” —San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

“All the Repairman Jack novels are exciting science fiction thrillers. . . . If you don't know Jack, you are missing one of the stranger, but better ongoing series in which every entry enthralls the audience, proving that Mr. Wilson is quite a storyteller.” —The Midwest Book Review on Hosts

“If you're a lover of horror fiction, vampires, and early Stephen King novels, take note: Midnight Mass is the best thing to come along in years.” —Rocky Mountain News on Midnight Mass
