Secrets are everywhere....

In Jack: Secret Histories, author F. Paul Wilson brings his popular adult series Jack the Repairman to teen readers. Jack: Secret Histories is the first of three planned young adult titles that tell the back story of Wilson's popular Jack.

Set in the 1980's, Jack's life seems pretty normal and boring. The youngest child of three, he loves his older sister and fights with his older brother. Over the summer his boring life starts to get interesting when his friends, Weezy and Eddie, discover a mysterious mound in the barrens near their hometown.

In the mound they find both a dead body and a black cube that only Jack can open. What is the cube? Why are members of the local lodge suddenly dying since the body was discovered? What are the secret histories of the world?

This thriller of a mystery combines a search for clues with strange unexplainable events. You won't want to wait for the next book.
