Title: Dark City
Series: Repairman Jack: The Early Years Trilogy #2
Author: F. Paul Wilson
Publication Date: October 15, 2013
The exciting new thriller in the
bestselling saga of Repairman Jack
For over twenty years, Repairman Jack has been one of the most popular
characters in contemporary dark fantasy and thrillers. Blending science
fiction, horror and mystery elements, F. Paul Wilson has woven a deep
mythology around the beloved character in fifteen highly-original and
engaging books. In May 2012, the series came to a close with Nightworld—
Wilson’s definitive edition of a great, long-out-of-print work. Although
previously published, this new version of Nightworld garnered a spot on the
New York Times bestseller list proving fans are still hungry for more adventures.
Luckily for those longtime fans as well as any fan of great thrillers, Wilson now
ventures into the earlier days of the Repairman in DARK CITY—the second
of three prequel novels which depict the naïve New Jersey refugee’s
metamorphosis into the urban mercenary known as Repairman Jack.
DARK CITY takes readers back to 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.
More of a straight crime novel than the later books of the Repairman Jack saga,
DARK CITY is a perfect entry point for new readers and is sure to excite Wilson’s
legion of fans by shedding more light on the background of their favorite “fix-it” man.
