Double Threat: A Thriller Kindle Edition
Double Threat is a new stand-alone thriller from New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson.
Daley has a problem. Her 26-year life so far has been unconventional, to say the least, but now she’s got this voice in her head. It claims to be a separate entity that’s going to be sharing her body from now on. At first she thinks she’s schizophrenic, then considers the possibility that maybe she really has been invaded – but by what? Medical tests turn up nothing, yet the voice persists… and won’t stop talking!
When she finally she accepts the reality that she has a symbiont, she discovers that together they can cure people of the incurable.
Maybe hosting a symbiont isn’t such a bad thing.
She retreats to a remote town in the southwest desert to hone her healing skills. But there she runs afoul of the Pendry clan, leaders of an obscure cult that worships the Visitors who inhabited the area millions of years ago. They plan to bring them back but believe Daley is the prophesied “Duad” who will undo all the cult’s efforts. She must be eliminated.
You know things are bad when the voice in your head is the only one you can trust.

Part rewrite of HEALER, a short novel published by Wilson in 1976, and part oblique sequel to the outstanding novella, WARDENCLYFFE, DOUBLE THREAT tells the story of Daley, a young grifter on the lam after her last scam blows up. She flees San Diego for the Eastern Desert and hides in a small cave up in the hills. She feels something land on her head and passes out. When she awakens she pries a smallish, flat, something or other from her head and tosses it in disgust. She soon meets Juana, a Native American, who seems to know something about what landed on her and knocked her out, but everything she says is pretty cryptic. Especially when Daley starts hearing a voice in her head, one that talks back to her. Moreover, Daley starts to show some rather startling new abilities.
There's a very wealthy and isolated cult-like family, the Pendrys, that is playing around with a replica of Tesla's energy broadcasting tower from WARDENCLYFFE (you really should read that before DOUBLE THREAT or you won't understand some of the (probably very important) behind the scenes and so far not elaborated) problems with the tower. And some weird critters that Daley think she sees one night in the desert. There is a huge cliffhanger of an ending, but that's OK since we know from the get-go that this js the first part of a two part series.
The Secret History of the World is never mentioned as such (that's usually the way it works in all the novels and stories outside of the RJ novels), but its fingerprints are all over what happened to Daley, Juana, the Pendry's and the Tesla Tower. I'm assuming that the connections will be made clear in the second part to this series.
I'm giving this one 4 stars for now but that could change depending on how good the second part is.
Recommended and an absolute must-read for long time fans.
