Excellent book. I will enjoy reading the other books in this series. F. Paul Wilson can really write. I actually cared about the characters and what was going on. Some surprises at the end made this book an excellent read.

This is the book that introduced Repairman Jack, and it's a real page-turner! I couldn't put it down.

Stolen necklaces, obscure cult of Kali, scary creatures--what could be more fun?

Simplistic supernatural thriller, with lots of adventure though few surprises.

There's a lot of Heroic White Man Saving His Loved Ones From Exotic Monsters/Evil Foreigners going on here, but I suppose this is to be expected from an author who writes in his acknowledgments that he was inspired by "the old-time tellers of Weird Menace/Yellow Peril Tales." The edition I read had been updated to fix certain pop cultural references, but the story doesn't really work without the tired racist stereotypes and I suspect this author wouldn't care to remove them anyway.
