Gaping holes, bottomless and empty…until sundown, when the first unearthly, hungry creatures appear. It's February Desert Storm is raging in Iraq but year-old Jack has more pressing matters at home.

A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills. Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances.

Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

He forms an uneasy alliance with Jack, who is preparing to face their old enemy. Meanwhile, Dawn Pickering is searching for her supposedly dead baby. The trail leads her to a mansion in a remote Long Island coastal town, where she discovers a terrifying truth she could have never imagined. So, he comes up with a foolproof plan.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? There are many books before this and you'll like them better in order. This review serves as a review of the entire series. Paul Wilson has built an incredibly believable world, a quite compelling mix of real life scenarios with end-of-the-world, supernatural elements. The main characters are interesting, complex and develop over their arcs within the series.
The plots are not completely predictable, contrary to what so frequently happens within a long series, and Wilson can throw a mean monkey wrench into the expected story line, creating refreshing surprises and a level of suspense that keeps you downloading the next book as soon as you finish the last, just to see what happens next. Wilson has a gift for sardonic, crusty vernacular and comic relief within deadly serious situations. I'm pretty sad to be at the end of the line. Who was your favorite character and why?

Wilson's main character, Repairman Jack, is Uber Everyman, a normal-seeming guy with a dark underbelly of seething violent rage overlaid with a strict moral code that makes him incredibly effective but keeps him on the side of the angels, and you will grow to love him. I also think the author identifies with this guy a lot. Wilson pulls no punches with regard to character collateral damage throughout the story line and Jack is a prime example of this. He endures incredible loss over the course of the series a spear has no branches but he remains unbroken and heroic to the last.
