The explosive sequel to The Human Disguise, The Double Human is an-action packed police thriller set in post-apocalyptic Florida.

Tom Wilner is a cop.  At least what passes for a cop in this shattered world.  Plague and nuclear war have left most of the United States uninhabitable.  Many have fled to safer zones, forcing what’s left of the government to wall off cities in an attempt to control mass migration.  The city of Miami is just one of these contained prison states.  Bit it’s the outskirts of this forsaken realm that Tom Wilner calls home. 

Amid this chaos, Wilner stumbles into the path of a wild and brutal adversary. Forced to go undercover in the most frightfully ravaged corners of the Miami Quarantine Zone, Wilner uncovers something he hasn’t seen in decades...a serial killer. But this killer’s path is not like any other; he has been active for nearly fifty years without any repercussions. People call him “the Vampire.” Indeed, this serial killer is not human...and neither are his victims.

Book Reporter

Wilner suspects that the killer is a rogue member of the Simolit family, but the Simolits --- whose relationship with Wilner remains prickly following the events of THE HUMAN DISGUISE --- deny any foreknowledge of such a person and in fact maintain that they want to catch him as badly as Wilner d...
