Giveaway - Cold City - F. Paul Wilson

Are you a Repairman Jack fan? (Stephen King is president of the Repairman Jack Fan Club!) Do you want to get to know this 'fix-it' man?

F. Paul Wilson is releasing three prequel books. It's a must have for established fans and a great opportunity for new readers to meet Jack.

Cold City is the first of those prequels. From the publisher Tor Books:

"The first of three Repairman Jack prequels, revealing the past of one of the most popular characters in contemporary dark fantasy: a self-styled “fix-it” man who is no stranger to the macabre or the supernatural, hired by victimized people who have no one else to turn to.

We join Jack a few months after his arrival in New York City. He doesn’t own a gun yet, though he’s already connected with Abe. Soon he’ll meet Julio and the Mikulski brothers. He runs afoul of some Dominicans, winds up at the East Side Marriott the night Meir Kahane is shot, gets on the bad side of some Arabs, starts a hot affair, and disrupts the smuggling of preteen sex slaves. And that’s just Book One."

Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining.”
—Dean Koontz
Repairman Jack is one of the greatest fictional characters created by any thriller writer in the past half century. If you haven’t discovered him and his world yet, what a fabulous, extraordinary,
and electric reading experience awaits you.”
—Douglas Preston, cocreator of the Pendergast novels
 
If this sounds like a book you'd like to own, just leave a comment to be entered. One copy up for grabs, open to US only, ends Dec 2/12. You can find Wilson on Facebook as well.

Stoked to see what the Early Years bring. Jack's always a golden experience, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how the initial time in NY changed him from the YA novels into the man who faced Nightworld...

Thanks,

Yeah, every single one of these books had been pure gold.
VERY anxious to get a hold of The Early Years and see how it all started when he moved to NYC.
FPW is the man.
Thanks!

Awesome that we get to see Jack's early adulthood in NY.

Count me in! I've been a fan of F. Paul Wilson for so many years. I purchased the original The Keep when first published in paperback back in the early 80s and have been reading his work ever since. Repairman Jack rocks! I'm definitely looking forward to the new books.

There has to be a reason why they call good ol'Jack Mr. Fix-it, and I'm sure it's not because he's handy with a hammer, and screw-driver; mind you there's a good chance he's pretty handy with those tools as well. I'm dying to read, and to get to know how Repairman Jack clean's-up those dirty, hard, nasty job's. I'm sure "COLD CITY" is a book that's chock-full of a adventure-a-minute, and that's exactly what I want in a book, and great page turner.
