The Westphalen family fortune comes with a curse, but a very light-hearted one which no-one takes very seriously. The iron necklaces with two yellow stones like eyes, inscribed in Vedic but worth nothing as jewellery are also an inheritance – one that carries terrible and unknown powers.  Repairman Jack must discover the link between them and fight the two families locked in a revenge battle only half-understood, only half-sane. Ever since his mother was killed in a gratuitous act of violence, Jack has been impelled to fix the injustices around him – an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. He is strong, fit, ingenious, respected by his friends and clients and totally anonymous. But when his girlfriend Gia discovers his repair business is not for electrical appliances, she becomes frightened of him and sees him as a thug. Another injustice – and another reason for Jack to withdraw from the world.

For the Westphalen curse ties Gia and her young daughter Vicki to a deadly vow of vengeance taken over a century before…
