The strands of Jack's life, established in the first two books, Cold City and Dark City, are now woven into a complete pattern.
Centered around an obscure group of malcontents intent on creating a terrible explosion in New York City in 1993, Fear City shows the final stages of young Jack becoming Repairman Jack. It is a dark and terrible story, full of plots and needless mayhem, with secret agents, a freelance torturer, a secret society as old as human history, love, death, and a very bleak triumph. Jack threads his way through this intricate maze, as people he loves are stripped away from him in a way that presages the later epic series of novels.

Everybody gets to die
Wow he certainly wasn't worrying about sparing the characters lives in this one, which made it even more awesome. I REALLY enjoyed this book.

So discouraging when authors make 3 books out of 2
It ticks me off when authors leave cliff hangers (as in Book 1 of the Early Years trifecta, just to squeeze 3 books out of what should have been just 2. Wilsons obvious greed here was disgusting.
Good stories..all 3 books have continuing characters and would have been better served NOT being a trilogy..but I guess Wilson needed the bucks?
I almost was upset enough to have missed the entire series from being in a snit about the first book in the series. That would have been a shame, though, because as this second listening to the entire series, starting with The Early Years, I would have missed a great protagonist and writer..and a variety of good and poor narrators.
You have to listen to all 3 of these books in order to have the story conclude with any sense. And, listening to them before starting the actual series is great for giving some information about RM Jacks past..well..the early years.
Get these if you enjoy the series and listen to them first if you like Wilsons work or 'Man solves crimes and helps people" genre.
Worth the credit? not really..but you have no choice.
