Gauntlet Press has announced that F. Paul Wilson’s Repairman Jack novel, Fatal Error, is at the printers and is scheduled for release this summer.
Description: Munir Habib’s life has become a nightmare. His American wife and son have been taken hostage and he must perform cruel acts of self-debasement to keep them alive. His tormentor, who seems to want nothing more than to humiliate him, has warned him not to report the kidnapping or his family will pay a terrible price. But a friend realizes something is terribly wrong and tells him he doesn’t have to go to the cops. There’s this guy who hires out to fix situations like this.
A guy known as Repairman Jack…
In his penultimate adventure, Jack is backed into helping Munir despite his ongoing involvement in the cosmic shadow war between the Ally and the Otherness. Or perhaps because of it. His nature is proactive, and he’s chafing at being forced into the defensive role of protecting the Lady. His instincts tell him to bring the fight to the enemy.
And then there’s Dawn Pickering and her strange pregnancy that’s lasting too long. She finally goes into labor and delivers…what? She catches a glimpse of the baby as it’s whisked away and is terrified by what she sees. Later she’s told the baby died of birth defects, but she doesn’t believe it. Neither does Jack. Neither does Weezy.
And then there’s the Septimus Order and the Kickers, seemingly working in concert to bring down the Internet. If they succeed, it will extinguish the Lady and open the way for the Otherness to take over our reality.
The threads from past novels join these events to weave a dark tapestry that spells doom for humanity.
