Jack is back, for 2002. F. Paul Wilson's engaging, self-employed, off-the-books fixer, Repairman Jack, returns for another intense, action-packed adventure just a little over the border into the weird, in The Haunted Air. First introduced years ago in the bestseller The Tomb, Jack has been the hero of a series of exciting novels set in and around New York City including Legacies, Conspiracies, All the Rage, and Hosts. "Repairman Jack is a wonderful character, ultracompetent but still vulnerable. Wilson strolls into X-Files territory and makes it his own, keeping the action brisk and the level of suspense steadily rising," said the San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle. In Astoria, Queens, the lively ethnic neighborhood just across the river from Manhattan, a house is being haunted by the ghost of a nine-year-old girl in riding clothes. More than two decades before, she'd been abducted from stables in Brooklyn. Now it's up to Jack to uncover the truth of her story and liberate the pretty, blond spirit. Perhaps the answer is in the odd little store called the Shurio Coppe? Ah, but that would be telling. Jack does things no human being should be able to do, but we watch, in horrified fascination, as the forces of evil seem about to triumph and fill the world with eternal darkness. And then-- but you must read the book. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In this short story from the thrilling anthology FaceOff, bestselling authors Heather Graham and F. Paul Wilson—along with their popular series characters Michael Quinn and Repairman Jack—team up for the first time ever. Jules Chastain, the last surviving member of a wealthy New Orleans family, has a problem. And he’s hired Repairman Jack to fix it. It seems that Chastain “appropriated” an artifact from a fellow collector, Madame de Medici, and she wants it back. But the item—an ancient ring—is located somewhere in the family mausoleum and Chastain is too terrified of the wrath of his enemies to even leave his house to look for it. Meanwhile, Michael Quinn, himself a bit of an independent contractor, is waiting in the mausoleum when Jack arrives. And it’s Quinn—whose day job at The Cheshire Cat curiosity shop in New Orleans has made him familiar with mystical objects—who tells Jack that they are dealing with more than just a ring. They’re dealing with one of the Seven Infernals. Which means a simple retrieval job just got much more dangerous. For more exciting pairs, check out all eleven short stories in FaceOff!

Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is already crowded with spirits. The last thing she needs is a whole new batch of haunts settling in. As Alison’s reputation as “the ghost lady” grows, so does her business—and not always in a way she’d like. Tourists may be flocking to her guesthouse for a chance to glimpse her resident spirits, but her special abilities are also bringing unwanted private investigation cases to her door. And she has no choice but to take a case when the local homeless man is found murdered under mysterious circumstances, just hours after asking for help in exorcising a specter. If that weren’t enough to deal with, Alison’s other PI case soon turns fatal, as the mistress she was spying on for a jealous wife turns up dead as well. The cases seem like they couldn’t possibly be linked, but with a mountain of clues, motives and suspects—both living and dead—Alison will have to think fast before someone else checks out for good…

“You see,” Miss Kayne said, “I committed a murder once myself.” Miss Kayne’s proud boast to Detective-Sergeant Bobby Owen is that she has committed the Perfect Murder - a crime with no clues. Bobby thinks at first it is a macabre joke, but before long a body is reportedly found, stabbed in the world-famous Kayne Library. When Bobby gets to the scene, the corpse has disappeared. But instead Miss Kayne’s cousin, Nat, is found in a nearby country lane - shot through the heart. Were the two murders connected - or were there even two? Bobby finds himself embroiled in one of the most ingenious and sinister cases of his career. Can he prove this was not a case of Perfect Murder? Comes a Stranger, originally published in 1938, is the eleventh novel in the Bobby Owen mystery series. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans. “What is distinction? The few who achieve it step - plot or no plot - unquestioned into the first rank... in the works of Mr. E.R. Punshon we salute it every time.” Dorothy L. Sayers
