Read Panacea: A Novel Online Free - Two secret societies vie for control of the ultimate medical miracle--Panacea--in the latest novel by New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson.
Medical examiner Laura Hanning has two charred corpses and no answers. Both bear a mysterious tattoo but exhibit no known cause of death. Their only connection to one another is a string of puzzling miracle cures. Her preliminary investigation points to a cult that possesses the fabled panacea--the substance that can cure all ills--but that's impossible.
Laura finds herself enmeshed in an ancient conflict between the secretive keepers of the panacea and the equally secretive and far more deadly group known only as 536, a brotherhood that fervently believes God intended for humanity to suffer, not be cured. Laura doesn't believe in the panacea, but that doesn't prevent the agents of 536 from trying to kill her.
A reclusive, terminally ill billionaire hires Laura to research the possibility that such a cure exists. The billionaire's own body guard, Rick Hayden, a mercenary who isn't who he pretends to be, has to keep her alive as they race to find the legendary panacea before the agents of 536 can destroy it.

A flat-out modern-day thriller with a wild scifi concept that delivers. F. Paul Wilson has been doing great work for a long time, and this book is no exception. PANACEA reads like a movie — fast scenes that deliver key information, moving the story forward. I'll be shocked if this isn't immediate...

A great conspiracy thriller, except for the part where they make Christians the evil ones. That seems to be the thing nowadays, in a lot of books. It's getting old.

Have you read F. Paul Wilson before? If not, don't start here. Go back and start at least with the first Repairman Jack and follow it through until Wilson weaves in his supernatural elements and his "Secret History of the World" stuff.
If you are still reading, and enjoying, his "Secret Histor...

A devoted fan of the Repairman Jack series, I was excited to see a new book by FPW. A battle is underway to protect our destroy a cure for any sickness, essentially a full health reset as you might find in a video game. The 536 Brotherhood thinks it's devil spawned while its creators use it to he...

I have zero experience reading science fiction - until now.* I was caught up in the story from the start due to the interesting characters the book opens with as the Medical Examiner has some puzzles to resolve as she examines the bodies of a couple of males, one a young boy she knew and one a yo...

Ne kitaptı ama... Çıktığından beri ilgimi ve merakımı çeken bir kitaptı Lanet ve nedense daha çok gerilim ve biraz ürpertici bir gerilim beklemiştim kitaptan ama kendimi Dan Brown kitaplarından birinin filminin içinde buldum sanki.
Cidden öyleydi. yani hiç...

The nitty-gritty: A fast-paced, globe-trotting adventure, with plenty of mystery, humor and characters that will grow on you.
In my “old” book collecting days, F. Paul Wilson was one of the authors whose books I bought and read, but it’s been years since I’ve even thought about him, until Tor aske...

This plot is a little overused, especially after the The Da Vinci Code series and the The Historian. Its interesting to follow an attractive couple search into the world's history for forgotten lore, the Holy Grail, explanations for human existence and visit exotic places, but in the...

Wilson fucking rocks. A fast tight thriller with cults, conspiracies, and unseen cosmic forces manipulating the world. Ties in nicely to his secret history of the world mega arch while being completely stand alone. I would love to see Rick Hayden team up with Repairman Jack!
