By the Sword takes up the adventures of Repairman Jack without delay after Bloodline. Jack is employed to discover a mythical eastern sword, a katana stolen from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and taken to long island urban. relevant characters contain the participants of a unusual eastern cult, a tender jap businessman and his 3 Yakuza bodyguards, plus Hank Thompson, the Kicker cult chief from Bloodline. The cult, the businessman, the Yakuza, and the Kickers are trying to find the sword besides.
Also within the combine is the pregnant teen wearing a baby, loaded with irregular DNA, who could be a decisive strength within the cosmic shadow battle raging behind the curtain. She turns into a pawn within the video game, hunted through each side. Following his traditional m.o., Jack maneuvers each side right into a bloody melee from which he plans to waltz away with the fabled katana. in fact, while issues don't move as deliberate, Jack needs to improvise (and he hates to improvise). By the Sword takes F. Paul Wilson's trademark breakneck pacing and interweaving storylines to a brand new point.
