Publisher's Summary

To save a missing girl....

Dan Delgado is a private investigator. When it comes to finding cheating spouses, corporate thieves, or runaway teenagers, he’s unenthusiastic, and unmatched. As a former San Francisco detective, he misses more meaningful work, but he hasn’t had the heart for it since his wife’s death five years prior. That is, until a phone call from a distraught mother, an illegal immigrant who can’t go to the police, puts him on the hunt for a missing little girl. 

By the time he reaches the mother’s small home, she’s missing, too. The circumstances are strange, but when a team of heavily armed mercenaries arrive, Delgado is convinced there is more going on than a simple kidnapping. 

Joined by his wise-cracking elderly assistant, a gun-toting pastor, and a UFO enthusiast Uber driver, Delgado follows the clues west, to Colorado City, a town cleaved in two by the 37th parallel, also known as the UFO Highway. In a town infamous for fundamentalist Mormon cult activity, they uncover evidence of a massive child-trafficking ring whose ringleaders might not be human.

Delgado and crew are plunged into a dangerous world of corporate competition, UFO lore, and government cover-ups. While they hunt for answers, they’re pursued across the Southwest by high-tech mercs, brainwashed cults, and beings whose true identity has been concealed since 1947.

…he must risk the world.

UFOs and alien abductions remain some of the most hotly debated and mysterious subjects of the 21st century. In the decades since 1960, with reports of strange encounters on the rise, 13 million people have gone missing worldwide and never been found. The Others takes a fast-paced, unique, and moving look at the phenomenon that has fueled Jeremy Robinson’s imagination since several sightings, strange happenings, and visits with renowned UFO investigator, and family friend, Raymond Fowler.

Alien invasion with a difference

Awesomely narrated by RC Bray, haven't come across a bad book narrated by him. Good story, a few good twists and enough jokes to make it a good journey

Guns, guns, guns - boring, empty-headed rubbish.

What is missing? Intelligence.
This title joins the legions of audiobooks that promise something new, only to subvert it with guns, violence and war. Monkey thinking (or NOT thinking). The NRA would love you. There's even a T-Rex thrown into the soup right at the end. Bizarre.

Roller Coaster

He's created a couple of great characters here and a nice dry sense of humour adds to the enjoyment. For me, toward the end of the book it became too over the top but we did look forward to going somewhere in the car so we could keep listening.

Would make excellent TV series

This book should be made into a Netflix series it is ever moving, has you on your seat, forever wanting more book. Definitely needs to be a TV series (film would cut out a lot of good stuff due to run time limits). They wouldn’t want to leave anything out. How would I send a request to Netflix to listen to this book so they could see how good a series it would make.

Action packed humor

There's so much to like about this book. The story is a bit cray-cray, but in a humorous adventure sort of way. It starts out relatively serious with Dan Delgado and his "elderly" (I use the term very loosely) assistant searching for a missing child, then turns into an all out cluster#$%. The characters are phenomenal... we should all have a Winnie in our lives! But I like Lindo, the Uber driver just as much, if not more.

R.C. Bray has an uncanny ability to portray the perfect tone in any character he reads, but in this particular instance its almost as if the story was written specifically to cater to his natural sarcasm. They could not have found a better fit.

Listeners beware, however. About halfway through Audible chapter 19 (verbally chapter 17, I think) the audio starts back at the beginning. it seems to only last the last half of that section, but I don't know if you miss any of the actual recording. When the next chapter starts, it seems to pick back up again.

Other than that, quite worthy of a credit.

The Others Didn’t Disappoint

My favorite sci-fi books are the ones that seem believable, those that are based on a premise (like aliens). Books that seems a bit out there but are so well done you occasionally forget that you’re reading fiction. They’re so unsettling that you get a bit nervous. Jeremy Robinson’s novel The Others is one of those books.

The Others combines all of the things that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up a bit with a unique take on alien origins, a pinch of corruption, great imagery detailing the landscape of the southwest, and a number of honorable people determined to find answers and protect the ones they care about most in this world.

Robinson drew me in right away with his characterization of private investigator Dan Delgado and his elderly (yet feisty) longtime assistant Wini. Both characters are immediately likable. They are fiercely loyal to each other and have secrets that create some intrigue, a trend that continues throughout the book as additional characters are introduced.

The Others opens with an apparent abduction that felt different from a stereotypical alien abduction and had me wondering if I was being duped. Was it a parental kidnapping, trafficking, or something otherworldly? What was the motive? Where is the child? The answers to these questions come slowly as the story progresses, with a thickening plot and building mystery.

RC Bray’s narration was as I’ve come to expect from him–spot on. His tone and pace paired well with the book’s first-person narrative and was a great fit for The Others’ protagonist, Dan.

If you’re searching for a story about short (or extremely tall), grey extraterrestrials with disproportionately large heads, huge black eyes, and flying saucers, this book is not for you. If you’re interested in a fresh take on aliens, with a healthy dose of conspiracy, a trafficking ring with connections to a fundamentalist cult, and some unlikely do-gooders to cheer on (along with your obvious hero, the private investigator), take a listen, I don’t think The Others will disappoint.

Good Story, Great Narration!

Cattle mutilations, black helicopters, UFOs, little grey men with bug eyes, black unmarked SUVs; must be aliens! Sure, that's what it is … aliens. Just keep thinking that. The hero is a retired cop, now a P.I. on a missing persons case, looking for a missing little girl. A little undocumented girl. Bummer. Her mom says - wait! Her mom is missing too? Oh, no! Crazy driving, hot lead gun battles, close escapes, mind games, false leads, mysterious cell-phone calls, mind-controlled zombie cultists, close escapes … oh, I mentioned that before? Well there are LOTs of close escapes. Maybe, uh, too may? Where's the kid? Oh, lots of kids? Where are they? Who's got 'em? Why? Why are there black, unmarked SUVs chasing him? Why are there unmarked black helicopters chasing him? Why are there UFOs with little green men - uh, GREY men - chasing him? Why does his head ache so bad? Lots of action. A new kinda idea about UFOs. Interesting characters. Would be a five-star rating except for too many miraculous escapes. The narration by R. C. Bray is fantastic. I LOVE this guy's voice. I could listen to him all day - oh, wait, I DO listen to him all day! He has the quintessential world-weary cop/soldier voice, and terrific alternative voices for portraying kids, women, zombie cultists, and aliens. Three thumbs up! Recommended! (Mike Riley)

The Greys are NOT your friends!

I'm a Jeremy Robinson fan. Have been for some years. I love how he takes a fistful of conspiracies, urban legends, HARD and soft facts, and spins them up with his own unique twists to deliver one heck of a GREAT roller coaster of a Sci-Fi/Horror Action/Adventure ride. --- In THE OTHERS he takes on the whole gambet of UFO/Greys issues that will leave you wondering just how much of this is Robinson, and how much of this ~ just might be ~ "REAL"???
Though I really enjoyed the whole story, I gotta admit, I did get rather bored with The Mourning Former Cop bit. You just seem to see him featured in too many stories any more. So much so that it's hard to really work up any real sympathy for that type of character. = Way over used. --- Still, plenty of other unique characters. = A wise cracking senior citizen partner, a gun toting preacher, and an Uber driver! (LOL) -- And THAT'S the team that's going to save the world???
Hang on to your Tinfoil Hats!

It Grabed Me and Never Let Go

R.C. Bray as a narrator is tops...just impossible to top!

Maybe you are like me...when I am shopping for a title, I go straight to the bad reviews.

After reading over the publisher's plotline summary, I read the negative reviews but was compelled to get this book anyway. Granted the strong reviews far outweighed the bad but I just went back to reread those bad reviews and wondered if they were the author's next door neighbor in a dispute over a noisy dog perhaps.

In short, the book was great. In fact, I assume the bad reviewers must have read another book altogether.

Get it! Read it! You will love it!

Robinson's finest hour yet. Just buy this already!

Where do I start? There is so much about this book that will leave you wanting more when you're done with it and I sure hope Jeremy sees this review as an incentive to write a sequel.
And RC Bray, don't even get me started. That man is a friggin genius when it comes to narrating and I'm a female narrator myself so I'm very critical of other narrators yet RCB really gave this book even more substance in the characters he portrayed. I loved them, I loved the story, I loved how the book progressed and that ending, that was unreal.
I listened to this book and listened to it again. I'm sure I'll be listening to it once more.
The backstory of the characters, adding the 37th parallel, the untold abduction, the chicano kid, the alliances made and Dan's story of how he lost his family and the events that unfold as he is trying to find a missing girl, going against Men in Black, UFO's on the run in order to survive, and more, this story was just perfect in every sense and I hope Jeremy, one of the Sci-Fi Gods in my opinion, has written one of his best novels yet.
Mirrorworld, Infinite, The Didymus Contingecy, some of my top 50 books of all time; Jeremy's writing is flawless and as a fan I just couldn't get enough.
The Others is a story of loss, government intrusion, UFOlogy, and kidnapping, but more than that is about survival and the elements combined with the characters and how they approach the phenomenon of Alien Abduction is very palpable and even credible. In order to write this, Robinson went straight to the facts with his research and his diligence was on point.
Take my word for it, this book is one of Robinson's best novels yet and not to read it or listen to it will be a huge loss for this genre's fans. You will love it so much, just stop reading this and buy the audiobook already!
Dear Jeremy,
If you're reading this, I beg you to PLEASE write a sequel!!! We need it, I want it, this was amazing and I can't wait for more. Also, thank you for the thrill.

Meh at it's finest

I chose this book because it was a sci-book narrated by RC Bray. Unfortunately, the pair couldn't overcome the story. The story wasn't compelling, had a predictable storyline, and undeveloped characters. Better luck next time.

Great sci-fi adventure

As with Jeremy Robinson books the characters are extremely likeable and you buy into them from the start, couple this with Brays narration and you have perfection. The only reason it isn’t a 5 star rating is that I feel it could have been longer, but that’s only for selfish reasons. I would have like to have read more interaction with the characters, there are journeys that could have carried that out perfectly, but instead they get skipped. It’s not detrimental to the story though. A great listen and had me wanting more and adding more of Robinson’s books to my wish list.

Silly

Well read sci fi that wasn’t too sure about itself in the genre - it would have been better as a straight detective story. The point of good sci fi is that even in fantasy land, the story has to make sense and be believable, I’m sorry to say that although I listened to it because I like the narrator, this was a load of codswallop!! Left me feeling ‘really?’ 🙄

Cant turn it off!

Very good plot, and very well written. So many twists and turns, I didn't not expect half the stuff happening. R C Bray has done yet another cracking good narration. I actually purchased this book because he narrated it, and very glad I did.
Far better than the synopsis, if you want a book you cant put down, this is it.

good take on an old sci fi theme

reminiscent of kings IT towards the end but more enjoyable if somewhat too light humoured in places considering the subject matter. interesting and thought provoking take on the ancient alien theme. too much action tho. the story could have been more believable if there were less suspicion arousing shoot outs.

Takes a while to get going but when it's full on. R.C.Bray as always is brilliant, started buying books on the basis of the narrator as a pose to the writer his that good.

Lots of potential in the storyline, but felt very slapdash and no coherent plot development. Grab another book read by this narrator who always does a god performance even with this type of sloppy writing.
