Everyone loves senior Carson Toliver, the captain and quarterback of the football team, heartthrob of South Burlington County Regional High--especially the girls. Even Jack's best friend Weezy has a crush on him. And unlike most of the popular kids at school, he's not stuck up. Jack even sees him defending a piney kid who is being bullied in the hall. Which is why Jack is so surprised when Weezy tells him that Carson took her on a date and attacked her. Jack tries to convince her to report Carson, but Weezy would rather just forget it ever happened. She begs him not to tell anyone, and Jack reluctantly agrees. But then Carson starts telling his own version of what happened that night and suddenly everyone is calling her "Easy Weezy." Jack's concern turns to rage. Carson needs to be taught a lesson. With the help of the pineys--reclusive inhabitants of the mysterious Jersey Pine Barrens who have secrets of their own--Jack finds a way to exact secret vengeance... In F.

Purportedly the final tale in the "young Repairman Jack" books aimed mainly at teens/pre-teens, this books is still very enjoyable for adults, especially with subject matter that is at times rather mature. Tough to choose between this and "Secret Circles" for the best of the Jack series, but you don't have to choose, read them all! And if you're reading the Repairman Jack saga (which you should), then you must read the Jack books to get the full story. For instance, you see exactly how and where Jack and his future armorer Abe Grossman meet. It's a very well done bit and hopefully will be expanded soon…more on this anon…

As previously noted, the Jack books really should be considered essential reading for RJ fans. Better still, as I presently read the intro to the "last" Repairman Jack novel, "The Dark At The End", I see F. Paul has another trilogy of stories planned to slake desperate readers, books that apparently will fit in between "Secret Vengeance" and "The Tomb". Well, good! There's certainly more story to tell, I imagine, and if it's as good as this, it can't help but be good news. ( )

The teenaged, less lethal version of Repairman Jack engages in what would one day become his trademark, revenge. He seeks to exact revenge against the school jock who humiliated Jack's closest friend. Only the jock overreacts. Jack is going to find out why. Good read. There is never too much of Repairman Jack, even the RJ-Light version served up in this teen novel. ( )

This is another book in the Repairman Jack series. Jack avenges
his friend Weezy after she has been attacked by the school football star. In the process he helps solve the mystery of a missing girl. The book touches on issues that teens face. ( )

Teenage Jack takes revenge on the school football god after he molests Jack's friend Weezy. Odd things are going on in the background, include some pineys with odd talents who think that Jack has one, too. But the heart of the book is Jack learning to "fix" things. ( )
