First things first, I'm a huge Tom Piccirilli fan, more so with each book. With that out of the way, at least half the formulaic crap on the bookshelves at grocery stores should be taken down and replaced with copies of NIGHTJACK. Based on a horrifying premise (mental illness) but kept "light" and absurd with black humor and incredible prose, the story is not always straight forward, but immensely enjoyable and satisfying. Seriously, Piccirilli should be a household name among horror, crime and noir fans.

A live wire of a novel. Tom Piccirilli's tale of mental illness can get confusing at time, but it goes through great pains to expose how terrifying it can be to be lost inside your own head. Pace, our hero with dissociative identity disorder, understands himself to be part of something greater than what he can imagine and from the moment he gets kidnapped by three maniacs, two fights between. One outside of himself and one within.

NIGHTJACK should be a mandatory reading to everybody who wants to explore mental illness as a central theme of their fiction. It can get to be quite a chore at times, but Piccirilli is never confrontational and never tries to lose you on purpose. Entertaining his reader always remains the priority. If you're into Piccirilli as deep as I am, this is a no-brainer, you've GOT to read this. It's too insane to pass on. If you don't know this cult author, read it for the sheer nattative stunt that it is.

Having already read Nightjack, I can tell any fans of Tom's that it will not let you down. The writing is what you always get from a Piccirilli story. Dark and mesmerizing, Nightjack is like an enchanted nightmare, and will appeal to any fans of his crime fiction-and even ones of his older, darker fiction.

All hail The Pic Man.

Horrordude.

A surrealist novel by Tom Piccirilli with an emphasis on madness over meaning. `Nightjack' follows the fragmented psyche of a disturbed and schizophrenic protagonist in Will (Pace, Jack, Sam etc.) as he tries to piece together the events that lead to his institutionalisation and subsequent release. Read in a perpetual state of haziness, the lines continually blurred between fact and fantasy as Will's (and wards) sojourn towards a semblance of reality on a quest to quash pent up anger and those responsible for his state of being. At times, `Nightjack' resembled the classic noir tale of a good man wronged seeking retribution for the loss of his wife, while at other, a collage of craziness and subtle interlocking of hallucinations to form pieces of a complex puzzle which unfortunately eluded a conclusive closure. An interesting and unique look at a multifaceted story with extreme multidimensional character(s). 3.5 stars.

Dark, haunting, and beautiful all at the same time, Nightjack is definitely one of the best thrillers i have read in a long time. This also happened to be the first novel i have read by Mr. Piccirilli, and it would be an immense understatement to say it won't be my last. There is really nothing i could say about the story that would do it any justice, this is a one you have experience for yourself as it unfolds. Damaged, disturbed characters, a breakneck pace and a hugely satisfying ending makes this a book you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!!! (I'm glad I didn't)

A man helplessly watches as his beloved wife dies in front of him. He becomes unhinged as he seeks revenge. He develops a personality disorder to cope with his loss. The alternate personalties were very clear and distinct and some very amusing. This book kept me guessing until the end. Loved it!
