When it seems like no one can help them, Repairman Jack is the person many people rely on.

The time frame of Harbingers is about a month after the end of the previous Repairman Jack book, Infernal. Jack has been without work the entire time and seems to have fallen into an introspective rut. His girlfriend is pregnant with his first child, and he has thoughts of going legitimate.

After a night of relaxing at a local bar called Julio's, Jack reluctantly takes a job tracking down the teenaged niece of a patron and acquaintance there. Led along in a bit of a game, Jack's search ends up in a warehouse in the Bronx, where he learns of a group that is thousands of years old: the Yeniceri, a task force that battles the Adversary. He is thought to have been led there in order to help the group battle a entity known as the Otherness, which wishes to transform the world as we know it - and not one bit for the better. Jack is hesitant, but when the lives of his friends and loved ones are threatened, he is forced to become involved as all hell breaks lose.

Those readers for whom this is the first Repairman Jack novel will not be lost. Author F. Paul Wilson cogently explains and ties things together to catch first-time readers up on the characters and the background they need to understand the storyline. As for devoted readers, many say this is a return to the series that they enjoyed so much in the early books; some have not enjoyed several of the previous books and thought that Jack was getting stale. Harbingers takes a fresh look at a familiar character who just seems to become more complex with each new book.

F Paul Wilson has written thirty five books across several genres, including science fiction, horror, and thriller. Repairman Jack is his most prolific character, with a well-known series begun with 1998's The Tomb.
