    One thought on “Crisscross”

    1. The next (for me) in the Repairman Jack series. I've noted before that this series seemed to start a bit slowly and almost of a different genre. With a touch of horror and some action we get an urban fantasy that's a little different from most others. I've grown to like it.I'm about to review another F.Paul Wilson novel after this one, and it's getting a lower rating. It's of another and a companion series to this one. If there's a flaw to Mr. Wilson's books it is that he tends to spin his stori [...]

    2. This one might as well have been called "Jack vs. the Church of Scientology", for as much as Dormentalism isn't Scientology, indeed Scientology is mentioned more than once as a separate entity in Jack's universe, the various charges and character of L. Ron Hubbard's religion seems very similar to the Dormentalists. I am sure this is not accidental.This was another fun ride for Jack fans, though Jack's being jerked around by a woman with a dog is starting to get old. Jack can't seem to connect th [...]

    3. Another good book in the Repairman Jack series. I like how each book builds upon the last, and can't wait to read the next one!

    4. Have those New Year’s Resolutions being thrown aside? Bathing suits given you heart palpitations? Well my loyal readers, I have found the solution and it is Miraculous! All the sugar and sweets you desire without guilt or regret. What is it you say? Why it’s name is F. Paul Wilson! In one day I found an author that delivers a thrill ride packed with more delicious corruption and gratifying pleasure than any indulgence to date. Here is a guilty pleasure without the shame. With no knowledge of [...]

    5. 4 Stars Crisscross, Repairman Jack #8 is another fantastic installment. F. Paul Wilson had created a special series led by a main character in Jack that always walks the line between good and bad. The Repairman Jack series has developed into one of my favorite series out there and I can never seem to get enough. Wilson does an amazing job at making each book work as a standalone while at the same time never neglecting the overall story arc. We the reader now not only know that each book and stor [...]

    6. F. Paul Wilson published The Tomb in the 1980s, and seemed to fade from the public consciousness, and he went on to finish The Adversary Cycle.Years later, Wilson experienced a crazy surge of productivity leading to one Repairman Jack book after anothere books themselves are interesting and exciting, and don't require elements of the supernatural to reel you in ( in fact the biggest drawback for me is how they are all dedicated to the adversary/supernatural plot). At the same time it is also cle [...]

    7. Another great entry in the Repairman Jack series. It's amazing how Mr. Wilson can keep this series fresh and interesting. This one started out a bit slow for me. I wasn't very interested in the workings of the Dormentalist church (although it bears a resemblance to Scientology) or their endless acronyms. Once the novel started to build up steam though, I could hardly put it down. This story is a lot meaner than some of the previous books in the series, with some really visceral moments. An overa [...]

    8. Oh, repairman jack He's so macho! I struggle to understand his relationship to women, but he's very lady-friendly for an action star, so I let the wanna-be-strong-but-fail-every-time ladies get a pass this time, but this book really brought that element of RJ to light. I guess the first one did too, Gia seemed insufferable, but will wait to read more before I really judge.

    9. These get darker and darker. I'm still loving them though. In "Crisscross" Jack takes on the "totaly not Scientology" church of Dormentalism and a seedy blackmailer he's dealt with before. One of these fixes is brought to him by an old woman with dog, so as I'm sure you'll have guessed there's more to it than it first appears.

    10. A very mixed bag for me.Probably the best written, most tightly paced RJ novel Wilson has come out with since Conspiracies, there's a lot to praise about this book. On the other hand, since it mostly spends its time cleaning up some plot threads from previous novels OR setting up stuff yet to come (there's one chapter with Gia specifically where she ALMOST gets run over, and that chapter seems to serve ABSOLUTELY NO PURPOSE, so I'm assuming it's some sort of setup?), this book falls fairly flat [...]

    11. I read this years ago, but I still remember it so clearly. Jack was working for two different clients at once, Jamie and a nun who was being blackmailed. The end was so shocking, I've never forgotten it. Jack's always smarter than the bad guys, but even he can make mistakes.

    12. More insanity with Repairman Jack. This time a couple of his fixes don't go as planned so he has to mix them up in order to get some payback.

    13. This continues the story of Repairman Jack. For those of you not familiar with the series, I can almost guarantee that tid-bits in this book will not make much sense as it references a lot of the previous Repairman Jack books. This series builds on the events from the previous books-- and while you can still read it without having read the rest of the series, I highly recommend starting at the beginning. That saidI found this book as enjoyable as all the rest of the books, though I did have a fe [...]

    14. If you like to read simply to enjoy yourself and have a little fun, F. Paul Wilson's "Repairman Jack" series is hard to beat. It features Jack, an urban mercenary, or something like that, and a cast of recurring characters that show up in most books. Add to that a science fiction element about a battle between two powers seeking to control the universe, and you end up with a wild set of books. The previous book, "Gateways" was a great deal of fun and featured a bunch of Florida mutants, along wi [...]

    15. This is the 8th Jack and I am writing these reviews as I read them. In many ways this is the novel I have been waiting to read since the start. It is in many ways a crucial turning point in the saga, but what is amazing is just how many of the novels present yet another turning point for the main character. You know Jack is going to survive to fight another day, so Wilson very smartly finds ways to ratchet up the tension for Jack.I have said it before but Wilson has proven with this series (and [...]

    16. The Repairman Jack series has become one of my all time favorites and this 8th entry doesn't change that opinion in the slightest. It's very hard to categorize these novelsey are thrillers, and mysteries, and can have some horrific elements as well. And that's not to mention the overall background story-arc that is very cool science fiction. I love the way Mr. Wilson writes, letting the reader really get to know the characters and really feel for their trials and tribulations while at the same t [...]

    17. Repairman Jack is hired by an elderly woman (with a dog!) to find her “son,” who has joined a strange cult called the Dormentalists. There’s also a subplot involving a nun being blackmailed for an affair. Again, Jack is moved around by forces far beyond human, and again, those who depend on him for help end up dying despite his efforts. It’s another terrific blend of horror and suspense. Indeed, this book is especially satisfying, for this time the villains are only human, working for th [...]

    18. I've read too many of these recently - there's a line with long series between boredom with repetition, and remembering enough of the plot to understand what's going on, especially when you don't really love the books.Here Jack takes on two unrelated cases - a nun being blackmailed by a scumbag PI that Jack has come across before, (there are not supposed to be any more coincidences in his life but this is not really explained) and another old woman with a dog, who asks him to find her son who ha [...]

    19. Through the first half, I felt as if the novel was a mostly straight forward Repairman Jack novel. It felt very direct, missing some of the intriguing subtleties found in some of the previous novels.But the second half, when it all hit the fan, truly made the book worth it for me, connecting with previous novels in the Repairman Jack series, and more importantly, in the Adversary Cycle as a whole. Not everything goes according to plan, and it doesn't go well for everyone, and "Crisscross" is a b [...]

    20. Jack is recovering from his visit to Florida and is barely getting into the swing of things when he's right back in the middle of it. He meets another woman with a dog, but this is just a customer trying to find her son in a church that appears to be a money-scamming cult. His side job is a sweet lady being blackmailed by a former fix of Jack's, Richie Cordova. This book picks up the genre that's almost noir in atmosphere. While there are definitely the typical supernatural undercurrents in the [...]

    21. Two jobs for Jack here, help a Nun who is being blackmailed, and help a mom find her son, who has joined the Dormentalist 'church'. (It's really a cult inspired by the Otherness).In this book you get to see that darker side of Jack come out again. The slime who was blackmailing the Nun found out that she had been behind the fix, so he kidnaps and kills her. The dormentalists sacrifice the reporter that was on the way to becoming Jack's friend, so you can imagine how pissed he is. It is truly a w [...]

    22. After eight books, the character of Repairman Jack has not gotten old. Wilson carefully plans out each story in this series and makes every one of this character's adventures aredifferent. Throughout this series Wilson has fully fledged out the other characters in the story and this is no different. The book itself is an exciting page turner that keeps the reader guessing, no character is safe. Wilson is great at setting up the story and it grabs the reader from page one. It's a very fun and fas [...]

    23. Another good thriller/intrigue in the continuing story of Jack's being the reluctant warrior manipulated in fighting the cosmic struggle of power as well as his usual fix it jobs.Pity Dr. Wilson has to kill off good characters, some could have become good allies in his ongoing struggle fighting this evil, like the enigmatic elderly ladies & their dogs 4 so far, albeit we lost the 3rd partnership in the last book.

    24. Repairman Jack is helping a nun get out from under the thumb of a blackmailer.And he is also hired to contact the son of a mother, a mystrious woman with a dog.The son is in a thinly veiled cult that sounds an awful lot like Scientology.We find out that Jack is not done with the Trucking Company that owned the truck that put his father in the hospital.And somehow we end up with both cases under Repairman Jacks belt crossing into each other.No more coincidences.

    25. Wilson dials back a little bit on the supernatural in this book, and it's better for it. Nothing against the supernatural, it's just good to touch base with reality now and then too. Along the way he takes quite a few thinly veiled shots at Scientology - although it is a separate entity from Dormentalism in Jack's world, the inner workings are pretty similar. And, you know, that's always fun, because those people are loony.

    26. The 8th Repairman Jack book took a while to warm up. One of the plot points (a well-connected and potentially dangerous cult) has become one I've grown tired of seeing. In spite of this, F. Paul Wilson manages to take this and another case and have them work against each other. It becomes quite intense in the second half, and a reader of the whole series can feel the stakes rising. Just when I felt like taking a break from this saga, the author keeps it very intriguing.

    27. Wilson takes a few pot shots at Scientology in this installment of Repairman Jack. Jack has to infiltrate the Dormentalist Church, and it's some fucked up shit. I really liked this volume because events are coming together to form a bigger, broader picture. For the first time, Jack's fix-its go horribly wrong. And Gia, Jack's special lady, acts as the proverbial loaded gun on stage. I already have book 9 out from the library and am ready to go.
