Repairman Jack is hired by an elderly woman (with a dog!) to find her “son,” who has joined a strange cult called the Dormentalists. There’s also a subplot involving a nun being blackmailed for an affair. Again, Jack is moved around by forces far beyond human, and again, those who depend on him for help end up dying despite his efforts. It’s another terrific blend of horror and suspense. Indeed, this book is especially satisfying, for this time the villains are only human, working for the Otherness only de facto, even unaware of what they do. The toned-down fantasy makes the battles grimmer, and gives Jack a chance to use both brutal violence and cold manipulation of the system to bring the evil-doers down.
