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?

All the action of a Jason Bourne novel, but no Government to blame. This is a fun fast paced read with some of the best characters I ever read. Vicky: little seven year old girl that just love the hell out of Jack and wants him to be her new Dad. Gia: mother of Vicky, and is head over heels in love with Jack, but uses what he does for a living as a reason not to. Abe: a pestimistic sporting goods seller, and illegal arms runner with a love for a certain bake goods maker. And of course there is Jack himself. One of the most fun books that I ever read

I'm really enjoying this one so far. Can't put it down, which is unusual for me. Wish my library would get the missing books from this series. Will have to use inter-library loan a lot to get these read.

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.
