Much to the chagrin of his girlfriend, Gia, Repairman Jack doesn't deal with appliances. He fixes situations--situations that too often land him in deadly danger. His latest fix is finding a stolen necklace which, unknown to him, is more than a simple piece of jewelry.

Some might say it's cursed, others might call it blessed. The quest leads Jack to a rusty freighter on Manhattan's West Side docks. What he finds in its hold threatens his sanity and the city around him. But worst of all, it threatens Gia's daughter Vicky, the last surviving member of a bloodline marked for extinction.

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.
