Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining.
Jack stand[s] out from the supernatural pack. The books are about an ordinary guy doing whatever it takes to protect the innocent, and that's a story that always has resonance.
A canny mix of sci-fi paranoia and criminal mayhem. Bloodline starts fast, keeps the accelerator down, and defies you to stop reading.

TDATE is a worthy finale to the RJ series, tying together all RJ 15 novels, plus the 3 YA Jack books and various other bits and pieces of the Secret History of the World. It leaves no loose ends. Everyone and everything of principal importance from the entire series is present and most play important or crucial roles. Weezy, Eddie, Drexler, Dawn and the baby, Abe, Thompson, Gia and Vicky, Glaeken and Magda, the Lady, Julio's (one brief mention) the Lodge, the Order, the sword, the pyramid, the Compendium of Srem, the Crown Vic, the whole megillah is here. FPW has somehow, incredibly managed to pull everything together and position pieces that are characters and artifacts from the Adversary Cycle and YA and adult RJ books onto the gigantic chessboard that will be played out in the "heavily revised" re-release of "Nightworld", due in 2012. And he has concluded everything in a compact 336 pages. It really does seem as if FPW has had this gigantic complicated plot line in his head for something like 20 years, and has played each card deliberately and at all times with the end in mind. There are no coincidences.
TDATE is totally satisfying while at the same time igniting an urgent desire to re-read Nightworld. I intend to try to resist re-reading the original copy on my bookshelf for as along as possible, hopefully until the revised version appears, which I will pre-order as soon as possible. I am a little sad that this is it for RJ (except for 3 promised prequels - intermediaries between the YA Jack novels and his appearance in "The Tomb"), but it was a masterful end to a great series.
Highly recommended (but only after you have read the first 14 plus the first 5 books in the Adversary Cycle).
