This is the first in F. Paul Wilson's books concerning Repairman Jack, a character that has become one of the most interesting literary creations since James Bond. Repairman Jack is a fixer of situations -- situations wherein someone has gotten a raw deal and wants to set things right. He has no social security number, no credit cards, pays no taxes, and makes every attempt to avoid the spotlight whenever possible. The Wesphalen family is living under a curse; a death curse placed a century ago in retaliation for the murderous acts committed by a greedy ancestor. This is an excellent read, and the series only gets better. You don't necessarily have to start here, the other books can be read separately, but this probably the best place to start to fully enjoy the rest of the books. ( )

What I really like about this book/series is the premise. Repairman Jack is a fascinating character. I also like that this book is not a typical suspense thriller or typical sci-fi book. Drawing on the mystical and the supernatural gives The Tomb an edge that keeps the book interesting from start to finish. ( )

I love Repairman Jack. This is the first of the series. At first I wasn't sure what was going on. It seemed like there was too much for me to keep track of, but in the end it was awesome! ( )
