Dark City (Repairman Jack: The Early Years – 2) by F. Paul Wilson

4 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) It’s February 1992. Desert Storm is raging in Iraq but twenty-two-year-old Jack has more pressing matters at home. His favorite bar, The Spot, is about to be sold out from under Julio, Jack’s friend. Jack has been something of a tag-along to this point, but now he takes the reins and demonstrates his innate talent for seeing biters get bit. With a body count even higher than in Cold City, this second novel of the Early Years Trilogy hurtles Jack into the final volume in which all scores will be settled, all debts paid.

Jack is back. He is still fighting with the Muslim pedophiles that he broke up their slave trade/sex ring in Cold City. He is also helping his friend Julio keep The Spot from being sold but the other owners. He also has a run in with Dominicans from the landscaping job he worked when he first got into town. We also get to see how Jack is training, working with the blackness that takes him over, and starts planning on how to take care of situations with a more creative eye.

This is only the second Repairman Jack book that I have read. I really liked Cold City and thought this was a good follow up. I enjoy following Jack as he is training himself to be something bigger and better.

I think that if you have not read the Repairman Jack original stories, this is a great way to get into the series from the start. For those that have read them, I think that you will enjoy seeing how Jack started fine tuning his skill.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
