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.

James O’Neal is also award winning crime novelist James O. Born. A native Floridian, career law enforcement officer and an acclaimed historian, each of his novels are based on some issue threatening society today. His first novel, The Human Disguise, predicted Florida’s tax structure collapsing more than a year before it happened. He has researched near future issues with engineers, scientists, government officials, military strategists, gun manufacturers and biologists.From Booklist:
In the near future, the U.S., its resources stretched thin by multiple foreign wars and homegrown political upheavals, is nearing full-scale anarchy. In Florida, the Miami Quarantine Zone is essentially a prisonlike wasteland, populated by the scum of society. Tom Wilner, a police detective, catches a murder case, but he soon realizes it's more than that: there's a serial killer at large, and to catch him, Tom will need to go into Miami. And if that's not scary enough, consider this: the killer is not human—he's the undead. This follow-up to The Human Disguise (2009) is a sure-footed and imaginative mixture of post-apocalyptic and vampire themes. Wilner, the veteran cop, is a solid lead—he's the reader's anchor, a familiar character in an unfamiliar world—and the author packs the novel with plenty of thrills and chills. The novel should appeal to fans of post-apocalyptic or near-future science fiction, horror stories with a vampire slant, and noir crime fiction (the story might be fantastic, but the author mostly writes it like a straight crime drama). --David Pitt
