Hired to recover a mysterious stolen necklace, Jack Nelson, known as the Repairman, encounters a secret world of magic and winged Bengali demons. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with electronic appliances-he fixes situations for people, often putting himself in deadly danger. His latest project is recovering a stolen necklace, which carries with it an ancient curse that may unleash a horde of Bengali demons. Jack is used to danger, but this time Gia's daughter Vicky is threatened. Can Jack overcome the curse of the yellow necklace and bring Vicky safely back home?

The writing is great, the story so-so. Suspension of disbelief is critical in a story with magic and winged monsters. There were so many plot points that made me scratch my head, especially as the story wound down. But the action is very well-done. It's like watching a movie with a bad story but terrific music. I think Jack and his friend Abe are great characters. But I absolutely HATED Gia. Please Jack, find a different love interest. If she appears in the continuing stories, it will be like sleeping in a mattress with a pin in the sheets.
