Paul Wilson's latest novel is a blend of science fiction and thriller, which means it is right up my alley! Double Threat is not a novel to skip! 26-year-old Daley is concerned. Very concerned. In fact, she might just be losing her grasp on reality. She's hearing voices, or more accurately: one voice. This voice keeps telling her that they're bonded and will share a body from now on. Naturally, Daley isn't reacting too well to the news. Yet when scans don't detect anything, Daley begins to wonder if maybe this being is telling her the truth. If so, it means that they can do wonderful things together. Symbionts, cults, and prophecies? Sign me up! Double Threat is a novel that has a whole lot going on, and it makes for an exciting read. Unfortunately, it is a bit of a struggle to describe without the risk of spoiling some of the best parts. So this time around, I'm going to go with less is more. Double Threat is thrilling, fun, and chaotic in all the best ways. Daley's character is bright is interesting, as is her newly found symbiont, which is more or less exactly what you might be imagining. I really enjoyed this varied take on the subject and certainly wouldn't mind reading more about their adventures in the future!

Paul Wilson’s “Double Threat” is a sci-fi adventure for fans of interdimensional beings and mind controlling slugs a la Futurama. As I am a fan of both of those things, you’d think that I too enjoyed this book—you’d be wrong. I am not a person who generally stops experiencing a book when I realize I don’t like it, but will rather finish it partly out of the hope that it’ll get better and mostly out of spite. “Double Threat” introduces us to Daley, a woman in her mid twenties who survives by the art of a scam. Scamming and gritting are her bread and butter, a seemingly unbreakable habit forged by living with her dead father’s swindling family. On the run from a group of Coachella goers who grew wise to her tricks, Daley finds herself in a desert cave only to be taken by surprise when something gross lands on her scalp and freaks her out. Welcome to the show, Pard. An indigenous woman living in the desert helps her get rid of the creature but the damage is already done. Hair falling out, Daley begins experiencing weird stuff, hearing a voice and seeing—initially—a naked man wherever she turns. Pard—short for “partner”—tries in vain to convince her of his realness despite the fact that she is the only one who can see or hear him. This on its own would’ve been a fine plot, but we are given the suggestion of a celestial cult, a clan of about five menaninte families who believe in The Visitors. These mysterious beings are rarely spoken about directly and that’s because only the clan elders are on a need to know basis. The head of the clan is neurotic, misogynistic and arrogant. His son, Rhys, is basically his errand boy and in terms of Daley, his pawn. Rhys is set to become the next head of the clan, but he knows next to nothing about what the elders and not only does that frustrate him, it irritates me as the audience. I kept hoping that crumbs of information could allow the audience something to hold onto, but so little was given about anything at all that I would easily lose interest in whatever was happening at the time. The setup of the chapters—“Date x, chapter x”—was really strange for me. Wilson essentially took days and then gave three different POVs of how the day went. Each new day began as chapter one, which I never got comfortable with, it continuously threw me off. The book took place over a period of maybe 2-3 weeks but with multiple POVs of the same days the story just dragged. It felt like simultaneously too much and not enough was happening for me to really enjoy the book. I wished it kept my attention more than it did. The chapter from Karma’s POV in which he fantasizes of what he and his buddy would do to Daley before killing her absolutely disgusted me. I don’t care that his character was written in a way that he would enjoy raping a woman; I’ve never enjoyed books containing characters like him.

    I really really loved this book, but unfortunately it felt unfinished. I understand the need to write books with a sequel or trilogy in mind, but each book should also be able to stand-alone and the ending here felt like it just dropped off rather than satisfyingly wrapping anything up. There are SO MANY unanswered questions, which bothered me, but I can’t say I’m not excited about the next installment (whenever that will be). **Note: I was given an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange f I really really loved this book, but unfortunately it felt unfinished.

    Double Threat follows Daley, a con artist whose life gets thrown upside down after she meets a mysterious symbiont. Initially she has trouble believing that she isn’t crazy as she is hearing voices. However, once she accepts that she isn’t alone anymore she jumps at the chance to start off fresh in a small town. This town isn’t all that it appears as there is mysteries aplenty with a weird family nearby. I’d like to start off this review by stating that I loved this novel.

Initially she has trouble believing that she isn’t crazy as she is hearing voices. However, once she accepts that she isn’t alone anymore she jumps at the chance to start off fresh in a small town. This town isn’t all that it appears as there is mysteries aplenty with a weird family nearby. I’d like to start off this review by stating that I loved this novel. I’ve read a few novels before by Wilson and this novel, like the others, didn’t disappoint. The plot was great with plenty of suspense and mystery. Daley trying to uncover the truth behind the symbiont and its purpose was great with a few questions unanswered (for book two I’m assuming). The investigation into the weird family/cult was my favorite part as they were so creepy I kept waiting for things to jump out of the shadows whenever they were mentioned. Hints about their past was mentioned but not fully, which also leads me to believe there will be another book or two in the series. The characters were great with Daley being awesome. She wasn’t your typical hero or antihero, she was a very flawed human being. Daley had done bad things in her past but she decided to start a new life so it was easy to root for her. I found Wilson tried to make her a little too likeable by having her cons seem less scrupulous. For example, she would only con big companies that was implied could handle the loss of money, but not little old ladies who live on a pension. I think I would have enjoyed her fully had she been more flawed and a little more heartless (aka if sue conned anyone). I loved the small town location as I’ve always found small towns creeper than big cities. The pacing was a little off as some parts felt a little longer than necessary. Overall this was a great thriller novel featuring cults, mysterious symbionts, and the end of the world. I would strongly suggest it to any thriller fans. My one main complaint was it felt more like book one in a series and not a standalone (as advertised) as the novel ended on a string cliffhanger. I Iistened to the audiobook and it was excellent, I loved the three voice actors as it gave each MC a distinct voice with their own infliction and accent. Thank you to Dreamscape Audio and NetGalley for the ARC.

    Double Threat by F. Paul Wilson is about a young woman named Daley who finds an alien has resided inside her head. The plot moves from there with a "Stranger than Fiction" vibe.

In fact, its enjoyment doesn't come from page turning danger. This is a slow burn ripe with fantastic dialogue between Daley and her alien, Daley's dynamic character change from extreme selfishness to to extrema empathy, and last Daley's paradoxical toxic relationship choices. Oh, and there's the cult based on mind bending science fiction. Wilson does a nice job of blending thriller and science fiction. Mostly, he's a natural with dialogue and immediately I am drawn into unique voices I want to root for. This book is well deserving of the applause and as much as I enjoyed the Repairman Jack books, Double Threat is better written. I suppose that comes from Wilson's dedication to perfecting his craft.

The multiple viewpoints in the story really add an extra layer to the story. I listened to the audiobook version and the narrators did a wonderful job. They used multiple voice actors for the different viewpoints and this gave it a movie-like dimension to the book. I found it odd that Daley didn’t find it weird or unnerving that the town she moved to was run by a cult. I don’t know much about California… but if I moved somewhere and they had referred to the different families as clans and ran those families as part of a cult, I would be freaked out. Daley just acted like this was normal of small towns which I found weird. The character development was wonderful. Daley started out very selfish and “I look out for only me, myself, and I” and developed from there. You should read this book because it is so unique! I enjoyed every minute of the audiobook. I would watch the movie if one came out. I found it wonderful and refreshingly original. 4/5 stars.

    DOUBLE THREAT is a very entertaining thriller that mixes humor in with the suspense and adds elements of science fiction and the supernatural. A symbiotic relationship between a 26-year old female con artist and the (alien?) slug that fell from a cave roof and affixed itself to her head/brain. Soon it seems like she's talking to herself all the time, but it's the learning process of discovering and then benefiting from the human/organism bonding .

A symbiotic relationship between a 26-year old female con artist and the (alien?) slug that fell from a cave roof and affixed itself to her head/brain. Soon it seems like she's talking to herself all the time, but it's the learning process of discovering and then benefiting from the human/organism bonding . A friendship develops that is equal parts weird and heart-warming. The dialogue throughout this novel is very engaging. A side effect of the fusion is a newfound ability to heal. To avoid being mobbed by salvation seekers who want to tap her powers to cure their ailments, heroine Daley (Stanka Daley) retreats to a small southwest California desert town. There she interacts with the clannish Pendry family, members of an elite wealthy cult that are utilizing Tesla technology to signal The Visitors who they anticipate returning to Earth. However, they suspect that Daley represents a threat to their plans. This novel was billed as a stand-alone story. I guess that is because it's not a continuation of the Repairman Jack series or any others that Wilson has written. However, as the back matter explains Wilson is developing a Secret History (leading up to a cataclysmic mega-event) that links all his novels and short stories together. While there is plenty of conflict throughout the story, DOUBLE THREAT does end with a solution/conclusion of sorts but leaves lots of unresolved story themes. There's no mention of a sequel but after reading this, I can almost sense it. I'd certainly welcome another novel featuring these characters. This is a great read and recommended, especially if you're looking for something a bit different that strays off the established genre paths.

    F. Paul Wilson’s Double Threat is quirky and weird and yet entertainingly so. There’s an old Indigenous woman with a Harley-Davidson and a sidecar who gives guidance with sassy sharpness. There’s a smitten potential suitor whose father wants Daley “out of the way.” There’s a disfigured genius who slinks around the town at night, kinda like their very own solo neighborhood watch.

And there’s a smarty-pants sidekick who lives in Daley’s head. If you like snarky dialogue, Pard provides lots of it. Double Threat was interesting, but it took me more than a few chapters to get into it. I’ve never read F. Paul Wilson though I’ve heard of his Repairman Jack series, so I thought I’d give Double Threat a try. If you like quirky reads with a charming main character who doesn’t seem to mind getting in over her head, then give this a try. drey’s rating: Pick it up!

The Harley driving elderly lady is a version of the lady with a Glaken like co conspirator in tow. The cult is also typical of all cults found in Wilson's books. The book ends with the obligatory henchman attack which is fatal except it's not due to the symbiont. Think Wilson is caught in a groove where he constantly is writing about the miraculous healing trope but inspire of all this it managed to capture attention till the end. Can't say I am waiting for the sequel with bated breath but I don't think I will mind exploring her story further.

Highly recommend.

I found the back and forth between Pard and Daley fascinating, even when it felt a little forced into a "one girl vs. The World" paradigm. On the whole I liked the story, even after it started to get a little too weird, but it didn't have the resonance of the Repairman Jack books or the Adversary Cycle for me. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.

    I liked the humor in this book, especially what Daley and Pard do to Karma at the end. The development of Daley and Pard's relationship is good. It says that this is a stand-alone novel, but I hope that's not true. If it is, then I'm left unsatisfied. There are too many questions unanswered. Daley and Pard haven't even gotten all the information about what the Pendry Clan is planning to do or why. So I hope to see more of these characters in the future.

    Super enjoyable, readable book. If you like Wilson you'll like this. Be advised though, this is part 1 of a two part duology. It's definitely the first part. There's very little resolution and it's primarily set up. Still, Daley, Pard and the rest of the characters are all enjoyable and worth reading about and the core mystery is excellent.

    Another great read from F Paul Wilson. HIs stories always mix mystery, horror, and science fiction so well. The narration was also excellent, and the multiple readers were perfect.

    This author can get a little dark for my taste, but this book skirts right around the edges of all that darkness, and gets to be an AMAZING read. I love the premise, love the writing, love the characters, and the flow of the story. Plenty of room here for a sequel. Great read.

    Unfinished Don't expect a tidy ending because there isn't one. It's a cliff hanger queuing you up for the next book. That frustrated me. 😡 Unfinished Don't expect a tidy ending because there isn't one. It's a cliff hanger queuing you up for the next book. That frustrated me. 😡

    Amazing The only negative thing about this novel is it ended! I absolutely loved it and I'm ready for more. I really hope there's more. Amazing The only negative thing about this novel is it ended! I absolutely loved it and I'm ready for more. I really hope there's more.
