Is used to danger but this time Gia’s daughter Vicky is threatened Can Jack overcome the curse of the yellow necklace and bring Vicky safely back home. The Tomb by F Paul Wilson is the SECOND book in his Adversary Cycle series and the FIRST book in his Repairman Jack seriesThis novel introduces New Yorker Repairman Jack a man with no permanent last name it varies with the ID he s carrying at the time and no records of his existence he either had them erased or doesn t reference them at all any His job is to fix things that the police can t or won t fix Sometimes this involves hurting or killing people which is why his ex girlfriend Gia dumped himI wouldn t think of Repairman Jack as a hired thug or assassin He s like The Eualizer from that old TV series only he s not an ex spyhe has no formal training to speak of He only kills when there s no other option and he only handles cases that the police can t handle He does this for moneyThe PlotRepairman Jack gets two contracts One from his ex girlfriend Gia whose sister in law has gone missing and one from an Indian cultural attache working for the UN who has lost an important necklaceOf course these two plots intersect and monsters are involvedThe GoodAs a character I liked Repairman Jack I can definitely see why there s an entire series of books based on him He s an intriguing characterThe book is also well plotted The pace is just right Sometimes a novel will conclude and tie up all its loose ends in the last 20 pages This one is deliberate in its pacing and it doesn t lag in the middle like so many of these types of books seem to doThere was a scene in the book where the monsters are holding chunks of bloody flesh that was once human a character in the book This scene was genuinely creepyThe main antagonist was a sympathetic one I like this moral ambiguity in my reads because no one is ALL good or ALL badThe BadThe characters in the book besides the protagonist Jack and the main antagonist are pretty one dimensional There is a child Vicky in the book who is written to be so sweet she d turn Satan into a diabetic Shirley Temple on her best day has got nothing on this kidThe monsters were kind of nondescript I didn t get any real sense of foreboding or threat from them It seems to me with a few slight changes the monsters could be excised from the story entirely and you d still have the same overall plotThere was also no real connection between this and the previous book The Keep which makes me think that perhaps calling it a part of the Adversary Cycle was a way to increase sales Another reviewer said it was Lovecraftian but I really didn t get that out of the book at all There is mention of the Old Gods who created the monsters of the book as a parody of humanity but that s pretty much it Even that seemed tacked on as an afterthought and maybe that small fact was the connection between this book and the previous book The Keep I m not surePerhaps I m not very astute in the literary sense but I still don t get the title The Tomb To me The Necklace would have been a apt titleConclusionIt s a good read Wilson didn t knock the ball out of the park as he did with The Keep but it s a book worth reading for the character of Repairman Jack alone Hopefully the ancillary characters in the Repairman Jack series get interesting as the series progresses As far as the Adversary Cycle goes this is a dubious addition to it I hope that the reason that this book is in the Adversary Cycle will become apparent as I read the later books

    I was going to give this three stars but I realize it deserves I think I heard it raved about so much that I expected to like it Had I gone into The Tomb with lower expectations I would have no hesitation in rating it higher That is why I hate to read books after they are so hyped It just spoils the experienceRep
