Detailed Plot Synopsis of All the Rage



Forge, Sep 2000, 25.95, 352 pp.
ISBN: 0312867964

    Repairman Jack remains a non-person in the databases of government agencies at all levels. There is no proof he exists except in an existential Aristotelian way. Though he loves Gia and treats her daughter as his own, Jack remains an enigma that even those close to him cannot comprehend. They all agree that Jack is a modern day Paladin hiring out for a fee to help those with no one else to turn to for assistance.

    Research scientist Nadia Radminsky hires Jack to learn what connection exists between her boss at GEM Pharm and a Serbian John Gotti. At the same time, a rival criminal wants Jack to kill Milos Drgovic. Jack takes the case and quickly learns that Milos heads up GEM and the company is producing a designer drug that has a shelf life of twenty-eight days. When Jack traces the drug to its source, he realizes that he is once again dealing with otherworldly events.

    Repairman Jack has had several brushes with the supernatural, but has proven he can handle himself against the forces of the dark, especially when the people he loves is threatened. Jack may not be a nice person, but he is efficient and effective, a benchmark for what he does. Jack remains colorful and weird as F. Paul Wilson has written an intriguing tale filled with unsuspecting twists and turns that makes this novel ALL THE RAGE.
