Looking for a fiction book about astral projection, a girl kidnapped by a cult and rescued by her father?

Can anybody help find the title of this book???
Many years ago (perhaps 25), I read a paperback novel that I’m trying to find.
It was about a girl who was abducted by a cult. The father began investigating and found that the cult leader was an expert in astral projection. The father then goes to a master who teaches the father all about astral projection.
The father tracks the cult leader and in a very supernatural ending, he does an astral projection battle with the cult leader, where they both inhabit inanimate objects around them and use the inanimate objects to do physical battle. If one can cut the other’s ‘silver threat’ that connects the astral self to the physical body, the physical body that has been cut off will die. At one point, the cult leader, for example, inhabits a teddy bear and brandishes a knife to try to cut the astral connection of the father.
The cover of the old paperback had a teddy bear with glowing red eyes, holding a knife.


  1. I was just discussing this very book with my sister. I read it about 35 years ago and remember it being fantastic fiction. Can’t remember the name of the book though. I’ll do some digging but if anyone comes up with it please let me know, it’s driving me nuts.

  2. This is a great book. Thanks for the thread. I just ordered it to re-read it myself. I’m going to give it to my son to read it when i’m done.
