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.

Con artist Stanka Daley, the heroine of this whimsical supernatural thriller from bestseller Wilson (the Repairman Jack series), takes refuge from the victims of her latest scam in a California desert cave, where she loses consciousness upon encountering a slug-like creature that soon melds its mind with her own. Back home in L.A., Daley begins to hear the creature in her head and orders it to leave, but it tells her it can't and to call him Pard. After Pard displays healing powers by repairing her arm that was mangled in an accident, Daley decides they should go into the healing business. Meanwhile, people are going hysterical and catatonic for no reason, bizarre earthquakes are occurring, and in the desert town of Nespodee Springs the wealthy Pendry clan is waiting for the stars to align in order to open a portal that will allow ancient alien visitors to once again return to Earth. When Daley and Pard coincidentally arrive in Nespodee Springs to set up shop, events begin to converge. With Daley and Pard, Wilson has created two of his most memorable and delightful characters. Readers will eagerly await the promised sequel.
