The Others -- Fun That's Out Of This World

PI's, aliens, cults, nano-tech augmentations, and a long history of abductions. Interest piqued? I should think so.

Dan Delgado, a former police officer turned PI, stumbles into the most unique case ever. It starts out as a missing child case, but almost immediately takes a turn for the bizarre. The girl he is looking for has been abducted by a cult who collect children who are then given to the Others.

I don't want to go too much further into the details because SPOILERS and more importantly because these details are incredibly creative.

The Others is well written with characters who are believable despite the fantastic situations which they are presented with. Robinson does a great job of creating characters who are realistic enough to ground the story, making the crazier elements that much more believable.
