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.

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.

NY Times bestseller.Stephen King claims to be the President of the "Repairman Jack" Fan club. I think I should be the Vice-President. He is that good!

THE TOMB by F. Paul Wilson: Repairman Jack doesnt deal with electronic appliances. Instead, he fixes situations for people, situations that usually involve putting himself in deadly danger. This Blocks Matthew Scudder sober or Childs Jack Reacher living in New York City. The current project involves recovering a stolen necklace, which alleged carries an ancient curse. In addition he must protect Vicky, the daughter of his girlfriend, Gia. Assuming Jack survives this outing, I am looking forward to new adventures. P.S. He does survive so there is bound to be a sequel.
