Another great Repairman Jack story. Here's when we finally learn about "the Other" and "the One". Fortunately, for the sensitive amongst us, there's little but dream-sequence blood and gore. The challenge is to figure out who's on what side--and the two adversaries don't seem very sympathetic, either of them. ( )

I like how this novel ties together some of the events from previous novels that seemed like loose ends. I am looking for ward to Repairman jack's next adventure. ( )

Jack always finds himself entangled in mysteries that start out normal and quickly turn into something else. Because of this I find myself being reminded of John Connelly's Charlie Parker series particularly because of the good vs. evil aspect of these novels. Jack is starting to question his choice of business and if he wants to continue or if he should try to go straight and just spend time with his girlfriend Gia and her daughter Vicki.

In this book Jack attends a convention on conspiracy theories in order to find a conspiracy theorist who disappeared and left a message for her husband that said to find Jack and that Jack is the only one who could help. The description of the convention and the people who attend it were spot on what you would expect at one of these convention and the stories are hilarious. Despite a brutal murder at the convention and a missing body the convention itself leads only to more questions and Jack's dry sense of humor keeps the book moving as the mystery gets weirder.

While Jack is searching for Melanie he starts getting strange packages that show up in his hotel room without anyone having brought them. The scars he got in The Tomb (Adversary Cycle/Repairman Jack) book 1 also take center stage in this book. Do the Rakoshi have something to do with this womans disappearance?

These books are constantly evolving and changing and keep getting better. Jack's rye and sarcastic sense of humor and comments just make me chuckle and keep the weird and brutal on a lighter level. ( )

Repairman Jack is hired for a simple job which, of course, becomes more complicated. An off-the-grid kinda guy, Jack is the guy you go to when you can't go to the cops. This mystery somehow involves infiltrating a convention of conspiracy theorists, people even more paranoiad than himself. Typically fast-moving, drawing you through the pages with a Daytona 500 pace. As always, the flawed Jack is a fascinating character, packing guns, paying bills through aliases, utilizing post office boxes under even more aliases, keeping gold coins in a hidden safe in his wall, while having no social security number nor other traceable presence. You'll come back for me Repairman Jack...author F. Paul Wilson did after writing the stand alone novel introducing Jack, The Tomb, and the last book in the series (since revised). ( )

Whoa... Repairman Jack is X-Files meets Punisher with some Tesla for seasoning. I couldn't put this one down. The only thing that would make this series more crafted toward me specifically is if Jack somehow got a kitten as a familiar.

P.S. Even better the second time around. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0812566998, Mass Market Paperback)

Don't bother calling Repairman Jack if your washing machine is busted. Jack is a fixer of a different nature: he investigates crimes that go beyond the norms of traditional law. In 1984's The Tomb, Jack tracked down a prized (and cursed) family heirloom; in 1998's Legacies, he sniffed out the sinister secret behind a man's last will and testament. The enigmatic sleuth makes his third appearance in Conspiracies. "I don't do missing wives," Jack protests at first, but the bizarre circumstances surrounding Melanie Ehler's disappearance convince him to help out the woman's distraught husband.

Melanie is a leading voice in the conspiracy-theory movement, a true believer that crop circles, UFOs, and even El Niño are all part of the same vast plot against humankind. She dubs this her "Grand Unification Theory," or GUT. One week before announcing the GUT theory to the world, Melanie vanishes and Jack is plunged deep into her weird world as he attends the conference where Melanie was due to speak. Jack is initially amused by the eccentricities of the alien abductees and Satanic cult survivors Melanie counted among her colleagues; but an apparently supernatural force, a murder, a disappearing corpse, and a creature straight from the bowels of hell put his skepticism to the test.

Conspiracies is another tightly plotted thriller from F. Paul Wilson, tinged with enough horror and supernatural suspense to please both mystery lovers and horror hounds. Repairman Jack reigns as one of the most alluring and mysterious private investigators in the business. --Naomi Gesinger
