The Tomb

The novel that started it all.

F. Paul Wilson wrote THE TOMB as a one-shot, never intending to carry it further. But its protagonist, Repairman Jack, struck a resounding chord with readers. The novel never went out of print and Jack's fans grew to be legion.

Jack lives under the radar, with no official identity. He makes his living fixing situations that the system can't handle, or the system has caused. Along the way he becomes a reluctant combatant in a cosmic shadow war that threatens the very nature of reality.

Who do the world’s most exciting authors turn to when they need a shot of adrenaline?
