What if the 9/11 attacks were not purely an act of terror against the US but rather part of an elaborate operation to gain access to an unspeakable evil buried beneath the foundation of the World Trade Center? This concept is the driving force behind the 13th book of F. Paul Wilson’s Repairman Jack series in which Jack must unravel these subterranean secrets to save those he loves most.

I was not sure if I was ready for this particular very real factual event to be blended with a work of fiction, but I was able to get through it and it was not as uncomfortable as I thought it might be. For those of you who have made it this far in the series, rest assured many of your questions will FINALLY be answered. ( )

Dang it, I'm just not feeling the series like I used to. I've never delved much into 9/11 conspiracy. I wish Hank Thompson and the Kickers would go away. Maybe I'm just feeling tired and cranky. ( )

I expected to be pissed off about the whole Truther thing, but it's fine. The Arabs still flew planes into the buildings, but there was more to it (none of it involving Bush, Cheney or Jews). Finally we get a lot of explanations for long-standing mysteries in the series, and more to come. The ending is a cliff-hanger, so have the next book handy! ( )

Wilson is bringing together all the elements for the big finale of the series, two books hence. In this volume, he brings in two more players, an ally and an enemy, presumably from the young adult Repairman Jack novel, which I've not read. The weakness of this novel is that it reads like a chapter, rather than a story that stands on its own. ( )

The latest (as of 2010) book in the Repairman Jack series. If you like action and suspense and don't mind a paranormal twist, the Repairman Jack series will keep you busy for quite some time. ( )

The apocalyptic plot and frenetic action fail to add up to a chilling read.

Book description
In the author's alternative history, a shadowy figure floating in a boat in New York harbor causes the collapse of the Twin Towers independently of the suicidal al-Qaeda hijackers by detonating explosives in both buildings. Several years later, Eddie Connell seeks out Repairman Jack, heir to the role of point man in the war against the Otherness. Eddie needs Jack's help in finding his forensic scientist sister, Weezy, whom they trace to a New York City hospital ward. Because Weezy had uncovered suspicious stock trading in advance of the World Trade Center attack as well as the editing out of a man from photos of bin Laden and his top deputies, her life is in peril.
