Baker & Taylor
Reunited with his distant brother after a mutual tragedy, Repairman Jack reluctantly joins his sibling on a treasure hunt off the coast of Bermuda and discovers an ancient artifact with bizarre and dangerous powers.

McMillan Palgrave
The ninth Repairman Jack novel brims with murder, international terrorism, sibling rivalry, and a truly infernal device. A mutual tragedy throws Jack together with his brother Tom, a judge from Philadelphia. They've never been close, and it doesn't take Jack long realize that's a good thing. Tom and he are opposites.
Still, Tom convinces Jack to go on a trip to get to know each other better. He has a map locating a wreck off the coast of Bermuda and wants Jack to help him find it. Reluctantly Jack agrees. But instead of treasure they find a strange object, part organic, part manmade, known as the Lilitongue of Gefreda. Ancient lore claims that it is a means "to elude all enemies and leave them helpless." The big question is, why does Tom want such a thing?
And if the Lilitongue lives up to the legend, where does it take you? No one seems to know. Matters take a bizarre and dangerous turn-no surprise for a Repairman Jack novel--when someone accidentally activates the Lilitongue.


Blackwell North Amer
The ninth Repairman Jack novel begins with a tragedy that throws Jack together with his brother, Tom, a judge from Philadelphia. They've never been close, and Jack, the career criminal, soon finds that he adheres to a higher ethical standard than his brother the judge.
Determined to get to know his brother better, Tom convinces Jack to go on a wild treasure hunt with him. Armed only with a map pointing the way to a desolate wreck off the coast of Bermuda, the brothers come across something much stranger, and much more dangerous, than mere treasure. Part organic, part man-made, the object is known as the Lilitongue of Gefreda. Ancient lore claims that it is a means "to elude all enemies and leave them helpless."
Why does Tom want such a thing?
But there's another, bigger question: If the Lilitongue lives up to the legend, where does it take you? No one seems to know.
Matters take a bizarre and ominous turn when the Lilitongue is accidentally activated.
