      A great thriller with lots of twists and turns and plenty of action!

      All The Rage is the third book in the Repairman Jack series and a direct sequel to The Tomb which, in itself, was a part of The Adversary Cycle. Some would argue that this is actually the fourth Repairman Jack book because The Tomb was where we were first introduced to Jack but in fact The Adversary Cycle is akin to Stephen King's Dark Tower series in that much of F.Paul Wilson's work culminates in its final chapter, Nightworld, and many of the characters that play a part in that final novel either pop up here in the Repairman books or other stories he has written.

      Phew...that got a bit complicated!

      All The Rage sees Jack, a Repairman who "fixes" situations rather than appliances and who does not offically exist, being hired to investigate a Doctor who has apparent ties to a Russian Mob Boss. At the same time he begins looking into the production of a new drug, Berserk, after his girlfriend and her little girl are threatened by some of its users. Surprise Surprise ~ the two investigations quickly become connected when he discovers that the good Doctor is responsible for manufacture of the drug. And its source has direct ties to something from Jack's past ~ making his latest undertaking especially personal!

      This is a brilliant novel with lots of twists and turns and plenty of connections with The Tomb and The Adversary Cycle which fans will really enjoy. Jack himself is an excellent character ~ little is known of him because he has taken great pains to avoid appearing on any Goverment database; he has no Social Security number, no Police Record and offically is a non-person! Even his cases are only taken on through reccommendation and word-of-mouth.

      I loved this book to bits and though I have only read three of the novels in The Adversary Cycle, I found this easy to pick up and even easier to get into. You don't have to have read any of Wilson's other series though, as this is just as much fun without pre-knowledge of the ongoing events that surround this series!

      I would fully reccommend this series and this book, especially, is a great place to jump head-first into Wilson's twisted world! I garuantee you will be just as hooked as I was.....
