“Repairman Jack has got to be one of the greatest characters ever.... When all things start pointing to the end of humanity, Jack’s the guy to turn to.” —RT Book Reviews

“A riveting supernatural thriller.... 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.” —Publishers Weekly

Bound by his promise to the dying former immortal, Glaeken, Jack has refrained from making any direct moves against his arch-enemy, Rasalom. But things have changed, so there’s nothing holding Jack in check any longer. Jack is healing at an accelerated rate—much like Glaeken did when he was immortal. This must mean that Glaeken’s time is almost up, and when he dies, Jack will take his place.

Rasalom continues to plot against the Lady. Twice she has died and, amazingly, returned; a third time and she will be truly gone, leaving a clear path for the Otherness to infiltrate this reality. But Ernst Drexler, formerly Rasalom’s go-to guy for logistical support, fears he will be left out in the cold when the Change, the final darkness, comes. He forms an uneasy alliance with Jack, who is preparing to face their old enemy.

Meanwhile, Dawn Pickering is searching for her supposedly dead baby. The trail leads her to a mansion in a remote Long Island coastal town, where she discovers a terrifying truth she could have never imagined.

Now the stage is set for Jack’s massive assault on Rasalom. Jack knows he’s got just one shot. But it’s not just a matter of taking out Rasalom; he also must retrieve Dawn’s child and minimize collateral damage. So, he comes up with a foolproof plan.

But fools are always with us....

From the Inside Flap:

The final novel in the Repairman Jack series leading up to NIGHTWORLD Repairman Jack unbound.Shortly after they met, Glaeken extracted a promise from Jack that he would make no direct attacks on Rasalom. But things have changed. Glaeken's mortality and advanced age are no longer secret, so there's no need to hold Jack in check any longer. Freed from his promise, Jack begins to prepare for a final showdown with Rasalom. But first he must find him.Other changes are occurring as well. Jack, for instance: He's healing at an accelerated rate much like Glaeken did when he was immortal. This can only mean that Glaeken's time is almost up. When he dies, Jack takes his place.Rasalom continues his plots against the Lady. She has "died" twice in recent years a third time and she will be gone, leaving a clear path for the Otherness to infiltrate this reality. But friction is growing within the ranks aligned with the Otherness. Ernst Drexler, formerly Rasalom's right-hand man, learns he is being bypassed, and fears he will be left out in the cold when the Change comes. And then there's Dawn Pickering, searching for her supposedly dead baby. She finds him along with Rasalom and the hated Gilda in a mansion in a remote Long Island coastal town. Now the stage is set for Jack's assault on Rasalom. He must succeed on his first try, because he's unlikely to get another. But he also must safely retrieve Dawn's baby and minimize collateral damage. He comes up with a foolproof plan.But fools are always with us
