Following final year's profitable The Haunted Air, F. Paul Wilson returns with one other riveting episode within the saga of Repairman Jack, the secretive, creative, and heroic champion of these whose difficulties nobody else can clear up. As Dean Koontz says, "Repairman Jack is without doubt one of the most unusual and interesting characters to come up out of up to date fiction in a while. His adventures are highly entertaining."
In Gateways, Jack learns that his father is in a coma after a motor vehicle twist of fate in Florida. they have been at the outs, yet this can be his dad, so he heads south. within the health center he meets Anya, considered one of his father's buddies. She's a peculiar previous duck who turns out to grasp a whole lot approximately his father, or even much approximately Jack.
Jack's arrival doesn't pass left out. a tender girl named Semelee, who has unusual skills and lives in an remoted sector of the Everglades with a gaggle of misshapen males, feels his presence. She senses that he is "special," like her.
Anya takes Jack again to Dad's senior neighborhood, Gateways South, which borders at the Everglades. Florida goes via an strange drought. there is a ban on watering; every little thing is brown and wilting, yet Anya's garden is a deep eco-friendly.
Who is Anya? who's Semelee, and what's her connection to the hot unusual deaths of Gateways residents-killed through birds, spiders, and snakes-during the prior 12 months? And what are the "lights" Jack retains listening to about-? lighting fixtures that emanate two times a 12 months from a sinkhole deep within the Everglades . . . lighting from one other position, one other reality.
If he's to guard his father from changing into the subsequent fatality at Gateways, there are questions Jack needs to resolution, secrets and techniques he needs to discover. secrets and techniques . . . Jack has lots of his personal, and alongside the best way he learns that even his father has secrets.
