Following last year's successful The Haunted Air, F. Paul Wilson returns with another riveting episode in the saga of Repairman Jack, the secretive, ingenious, and heroic champion of those whose problems no one else can solve. As Dean Koontz says, "Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining."

In Gateways, Jack learns that his father is in a coma after a car accident in Florida. They've been on the outs, but this is his dad, so he heads south. In the hospital he meets Anya, one of his father's neighbors. She's a weird old duck who seems to know an awful lot about his father, and even a lot about Jack.

Jack's arrival does not go unnoticed. A young woman named Semelee, who has strange talents and lives in an isolated area of the Everglades with a group of misshapen men, feels his presence. She senses that he's "special," like her.

Anya takes Jack back to Dad's senior community, Gateways South, which borders on the Everglades. Florida is going through an unusual drought. There's a ban on watering; everything is brown and wilting, but Anya's lawn is a deep green.
Who is Anya? Who is Semelee, and what is her connection to the recent strange deaths of Gateways residents-killed by birds, spiders, and snakes-during the past year? And what are the "lights" Jack keeps hearing about-? Lights that emanate twice a year from a sinkhole deep in the Everglades . . . lights from another place, another reality.

If he is to protect his father from becoming the next fatality at Gateways, there are questions Jack must answer, secrets he must uncover. Secrets . . . Jack has plenty of his own, and along the way he learns that even his father has secrets.

"This sixth novel in Wilson's gutsy Repairman Jack series (after Hosts) teams the righteous urban mercenary with his strangest bedfellows yet .. . . Readers know they can count on Wilson to weave the most unruly narrative strands into a tight Gordian plot and he doesn't disappoint here. . . . The tale speeds briskly to its spooky climax . . . Above all, the novel enhances the enigma of Jack, a hero who commands respect "
-Publishers Weekly on The Haunted Air

"Repairman Jack is a wonderful character, ultracompetent but still vulnerable. While there's plenty of violence in Conspiracies, there's also a lot of humor. Wilson strolls into X-Files territory and makes it his own, keeping the action brisk and the level of suspense steadily rising."
--San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle

"Compelling."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) on All the Rage

"Like the best of Dean Koontz's work, Wilson's work combines an action/adventure yarn with a touch of the fantastic. . . . If you haven't read any of the Repairman Jack novels before, now is a good time to start. They're smart, exciting, and, most of all, fun.
--The Denver Post

"F. Paul Wilson is a hot writer, and his hottest, and my favorite, creation is Repairman Jack. No one does this kind of weird meets crime better than Wilson. Gripping, fascinating, one of a kind. That's F. Paul Wilson and Repairman Jack."
-Joe R. Lansdale

"The Tomb is one of the best all-out adventure stories I've read in years."
-Stephen King (President of the Repairman Jack Fan Club)
