Publisher's Summary

It's February 1991. Desert Storm is raging in Iraq but 22-year-old Jack has more pressing matters at home. His favorite bar, The Spot, is about to be sold out from under his friend Julio. No longer merely reactive, Jack takes the fight to his enemies and demonstrates his innate talent for seeing biters get bit. With a body count even higher than in Cold City, Dark City hurtles Jack toward the climax of this formative New York odyssey in which all scores will be settled, all debts paid.
Dark City is the second of three new novels revealing the early years of Repairman Jack, 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 nowhere else to turn.

Repairman Jack Early Years Book 2

After being quite disappointed in the first novel in this series, I decided to go ahead and listen to this, the second book, I liked it quite a bit better than the first book..especially since there weren't hanging story lines as there were in the first book...

I enjoyed this so much I purchased the third in this series plus the first one in the original series..

Recommended for those who like fix-it type guys with a touch of paranormal

- Elle (AKA PlantCrone) in the great NorthWest "ELLE aka PlantCrone of the Great Pacific Northwest. I enjoy almost every genre-S/F, Action, Biographies and Histories & Romance"

Slooooow

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Picks up a bit in the second half, but I'm not sure the payoff was worth it. Actually, I'm sure the payoff was not worth all the hours I put into this. Bottom line, there's way too little of Jack and far too much of the side stories. Too much detail put into characters that are not Jack. Like when Wilson shows us step-by-step how a guy goes about scamming a senior citizen out of her savings. Goes on and on for hours. Literally. Soooo boring. Otherwise well-written and I still count myself a fan.
