Overview

Far in the future, the Earth is surrounded by a half-mile thick layer of space junk, some of it trash, some of it giant advertising billboards, some of it space-winni vacationers. But Priest, a sexist narcotics detective for The Authority is more interested in the terrorist group whose strange new weapon took a pot shot at his city and atomized everything inside its target area—including his arm.
Priest finds himself partnered with the tough and sexy Rehna, a fellow Authority officer, and Gawyn, a brilliant little girl whose gruff attitude matches Priest’s. The three of them track down the terrorists, and their weapon, while Priest looks to deliver his unique brand of justice and get compensation for not one, but two ruined Tac-suits.
FROM ABOVE is a 7500 words novella also published in Jeremy Robinson’s short story collection, INSOMNIA. This solo release also contains samples of Robinson’s books, CALLSIGN: KING and THE LAST HUNTER – DESCENT.

PRAISE FOR ROBINSON:

"Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure." -- James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of JAKE RANSOM AND THE SKULL KING'S SHADOW

"With THRESHOLD Jeremy Robinson goes pedal to the metal into very dark territory. Fast-paced, action-packed and wonderfully creepy! Highly recommended!" --Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN

"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson..."-- Stephen Coonts, NY Times bestselling author of DEEP BLACK: ARCTIC GOLD

"How do you find an original story idea in the crowded action-thriller genre? Two words: Jeremy Robinson." -- Scott Sigler, NY Times Bestselling author of ANCESTOR

"There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom." -- Jeff Long, New York Times bestselling author of THE DESCENT

"Jeremy Robinson's THRESHOLD is one hell of a thriller, wildly imaginative and diabolical, which combines ancient legends and modern science into a non-stop action ride that will keep you turning the pages until the wee hours. Relentlessly gripping from start to finish, don't turn your back on this book!" -- Douglas Preston, NY Times bestselling author of IMPACT and BLASPHEMY

    Great short from Mr. Robinson

    This is the first novella I have read from Jeremy, and his action-packed writing never fails to delight. The only downside to this story is: It will leave you wanting more.

    Great

    I know it was a novella, but once again a page turner. Dissapointed when the story was over. I want more. His writing is addicting. He always leaves me needing more.

    Sci Fi Noir

    Fun read, kind of reminded me of "Blade Runner".

    I was sorry that it ended, I wanted to see how things on Earth resolved themselves.

    Great Novella

    A great sci-fi novella with tones of noir. Of course any story by Robinson has action and worldwide stakes. A great, fun, little tale.
