Author: Paul Wilson
This is the final book in F. Paul Wilson’s young adult trilogy. Those who have read the recent adult Repairman Jack novels will want to read this book as it foreshadows events that take place in Ground Zero and Fatal Error.
Weezy was attacked on a Saturday night…
The hottest guy in school thought she’d be easy, but she wasn’t. And now he’s spreading stories about her. Weezy may be the smartest girl at South Burlington Regional High, but she’s emotionally fragile. Jack sees her starting to crack and decides he’s got to act. His first impulse is to apply his baseball bat to the guy’s knees, but no-in his inimitable way, Jack devises a punishment much worse than broken bones.
Along the road to vengeance, he learns secrets about Weird Walt, his father, and himself; he meets the mysterious Mr. Foster, has a run-in with Mr. Rozen’s strange nephew, and falls in with some even stranger piney kids.
But the biggest surprise of all occurs when Jack’s revenge scheme takes a shocking and unexpectedly deadly turn.
In F. Paul Wilson’s third young adult novel, the teenage Jack demonstrates the devious skills that will serve him later in life as the urban mercenary known as Repairman Jack.
