The first book of the Repairman Jack series. I had just read Of Human Bondage, so I needed something fun to read, and this was exactly that. I love the Dresden and Felix Castor supernatural detective books and was recommended this series to try. I might be hooked! This particular entry introduces Jack, a guy who fixes things, meaning he's a thug. But...he has a heart of gold, of course. He gets hired to find a mysterious necklace by a one armed Indian and his very bangable sister, who both may be hiding some deep dark secrets that could get Jack killed in a most horrendous fashion. If that weren't enough, Jack's ex-girlfriend enlists him to find her missing Aunt. Unfortunately for Jack, these two cases are on a collision course! Anyways, the book so entertaining that you can forgive convenient plot devices and out-of-nowhere clues that turn up at the last possible second. It's not as good a the Dresden books, but it might be the closest second that I've encountered so far.
