Jack fixes things. Not washing machines and stuff like that. He fixes situations for people. It’s a job that takes him outside the law and means he has to separate himself from most of the things society think of as normal. It also recently separated him from his girlfriend when she found out his job doesn’t involve fixing household appliances. Now he’s got to fix a situation for his ex girlfriend involving a family curse that started generations ago in India.
Followers of the blog know I love The Dresden Files and the Felix Castor series. Repairman Jack hooks into exactly the same groove for me. Harry Dresden, Felix Castor and Jack are the same type of men. Strong, self-reliant and they get the job done in an action-packed way. Very appealing for a cowardly computer geek like myself… I’m looking forward to the next 14 books in the series.
