Sometimes a short story is just that… short. And sometimes its much, much more. From Above is one of those stories. I genuinely couldn’t believe the back story that Robinson was able to get into such a short story.
The characters were incredibly real and likable. Even the story itself seemed to be plausible. Yes, it’s a science fiction story that takes place in the near future, but even the way that things were laid out were totally believable.
The character interactions (and differences) made a unique subplot to this story, stealing the show at times. Needless to say, I’m not really surprised that I liked a Jeremy Robinson book. I really haven’t disliked anything I’ve read by him yet.
If you’re looking for a short story that will take 40 minutes or so — this novella/short story is for you.

One day, someone or SOMETHING punched a hole in the Earth, taking three wanted criminals and Priest's arm in the process. But, that didn't annoy him off nearly as much as the fact that his perfectly good Tac-suit was now ruined.
One year later, Priest is on the scene when it happens again.
This time, millions die.
Priest, an old-school detective, is something of a sexist, but he'll have to swallow his pride and take orders from his new female partner AND a girl-genius computer nerd if he hopes to survive, save the world and...get a new Tac-suit.
The characters are fun and there's a nice build up, though the ending is a bit abrupt, leaving one with the Is-that-all-there-is? blues.
Still, based on the strength of this short story, I'd be willing to check out one of the author's longer works.
1) When my arm came off, I knew something wasn't right
2) I must have knocked the satellite out of orbit when I hit. Better lay off the cheeseburgers.
3) I gun the throttle to the max, pulling more G's than a Disney Universe shuttle pod
I found the book a pleasant, quick read with a protagonist whose antics made me smile! Also includes samples of the two works "The Last Hunter" and "Callsign: King" at the close to read thru if you like.
There are three characters we follow in the story. Two are police officers and one is a young girl. The girl is smarter than a whip and the attitudes of the police officers are very believable. They are on a quest to save the planet from a group of radicals. The story is set in the future and showcases several really cool police uniform and vehicle improvements.
I read this through in one sitting, it is a short story. I recommend it for a quick entertaining read.
Priest has a thing for Tac-suits and his new partner, Rehna.
It's a great story. I loved reading it because I can't get enough of these kinds of stories. You get a sense of the type of people that make up these two main characters and the choices they make are not out of the ordinary for them.
I recommend this to lovers of noir and detective stories.
The tale is an interesting prelude to a potential future character. The character has no real back history, but is well fleshed out during story paces via first person thoughts and dialogue bits.
Futuristic noir piece that is told strongly for most part and is tinged with a bit of "bada$$" detective wry wit.
I would recommend author - but a longer book.
