Publisher's Summary

F. Paul Wilson returns with another riveting episode in the saga of Repairman Jack, the secretive, ingenious, and heroic champion of those whose problems no one else can fix. As Dean Koontz says, "Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining."
Jack learns that his father is in a coma after a car accident in Florida. They've been on the outs, but this is his dad, so he heads south to Gateways, a retirement community on the Everglades. The woman Semelee, who has strange talents and lives in an isolated area of the Everglades with a group of misshapen men, feels his presence. She senses that he's "special," like her. To protect his father from becoming the next fatality at Gateways, there are questions Jack must answer, secrets he must uncover.

The 'Lady' steals the show

Jack and his Father are reunited after many years when Jack is called to his Father's hospital bed after a serious car accident, needless to say, Daddy lives.

We are then introduced to the mysterious 'Lady Anya' and her amazing, alligator destroying dog 'Oyv' and I could not help but fall in love in both of them, they are integral parts of this novel and the dog is just astounding, his Mistress too. The semi-antagonist Semelee, is equally intriguing, she makes a strong character for whom I had a lot of admiration.

The storyline is par for the course as far as Jack goes, all yummy goodness there, but we also have weird portals and creepy 'Inbred' characters to deal with so you can guess where it goes from there, I hate spoilers so please forgive me the lack of detail.

I love this instalment in this fantastic series, I will go so far as to say that it is my favourite thus far.
