All The Rage - Repairman Jack, Bk 4 Author:F. Paul Wilson A new chemical compound, a non-addictive designer drug that heightens your assertiveness, opens the door to your primal self, giving you an edge wherever you compete?whether on the street or the football field, in a classroom or a boardroom. Wouldn?t you be tempted to try it . . . just once? — Jack is hired by Dr. Nadia Radzminsky, a young resear... more »cher who?s concerned about the safety of her boss and mentor. She fears he?s being threatened or blackmailed by high-profile hood Milos Dragovic. Jack pokes around and soon finds himself knee deep in the glossy underworld of designer drugs.
The hot new substance that?s sweeping the city goes by many names, but its most common street handle is Berzerk. Not just for all-night raves, it?s worming its way into daily life at all levels. Used in just the right amount, it enhances performance in any field; but take too much and you veer into mindless murderous rage. The street folk don?t call it Berzerk for nothing.
As Jack tracks Berzerk through a maze of legal and illegal pharmaceuticals, he makes an enemy of Milos Dragovic. Soon Dragovic?s goons are threatening those Jack holds most dear. And when Jack uncovers the terrifying truth behind Berzerk?s ultimate source, he realizes that a maleficent force far greater than Milos Dragovic is at work . . . and Jack, and Nadia and everyone they love are in far more danger than they could have imagined.« less

F. Paul Wilson is a master story teller, and no less evident here in "All The Rage". Jack, mysterious fix-it repairman, once again battles a mysterious, yet familiar foe in a twisted tale of the supernatural and vengeance. Great tale!
I was honestly disappointed. I've read several of these Jack books out of sequence, so I decided to try and start working my way through them in order. I'm going to keep going, but this one wouldn't end... it kept going and going and going. He could have wrapped it up 3/4 of the way through the book and kept his reader interested.
How can a new designer street drug be tied to the Rakoshi? Surely scar-lip had dids with his siblings and thier creator? Another excellent F. Paul Wilson novel.If you are into Repairman Jack ( and who isn't?) this is a must -read.
