It seems the world is quite literally going to Hell and Jack is one of the few people that might be able to stop it. This latest adventure sees Jack getting drawn into investigating the ritual killing of children, phony mediums and a ghost interfering in his private life.
On the plus side, the book was well paced and I was desperate to know what happens next. On the negative side, the content is really heavy and disturbing. There are elements that are very similar to one of the Felix Castor books, but with a much darker edge.
Jack is reunited with his sister, just as a new virus threatens to link all human brains into a single collective hive mind, turning the human race into a docile petri dish living for the greater good of the virus.
Perhaps it’s my mood, but this story is just a little too depressing for my tastes. I’m hoping the rest of the series won’t degenerate into this type of doom and gloom. It needs a little more wit and humor to lift it.
There is a new designer drug in town. In the right dose it makes you assertive and confident. Too much and you become a savage killer. What seems like an innocent case for Jack, turns into a life or death situation for him and the people he loves.
A pretty neat romp that follows on quite nicely from the previous books…
Jack is hired to look for a missing woman who happens to be part of a very exclusive conspiracy theory group. What’s more she went missing just before presenting her Grand Unification Theory, that supposedly explains the true root of all conspiracies through all the ages. Coincidence?
I really liked this story. I’m not into conspiracy theories myself, but I can see why they are fascinating to people. That constant spiral of the lack of evidence because the evidence is being withheld. It kinda draws you in.
This book was more like a straight detective story based around a new scientific discovery. There was no supernatural aspect to the case, which was a bit disappointing. The story itself was fine, but the supernatural thing peaks my interest that bit more. I’m still happy to keep reading the books in the series, especially since they are only £1.97 on Kindle.
Jack fixes things. Not washing machines and stuff like that. He fixes situations for people. It’s a job that takes him outside the law and means he has to separate himself from most of the things society think of as normal. It also recently separated him from his girlfriend when she found out his job doesn’t involve fixing household appliances. Now he’s got to fix a situation for his ex girlfriend involving a family curse that started generations ago in India.
