Overview

Following the death of his wife and son at childbirth John Roundtree becomes a bitter recluse, rumored to dabble in the supernatural. When hunting guide Eagle Feather and his two clients stumble across the body of a small white girl on a lonely mesa on the reservation, people naturally suspect Roundtree.

He follows them but the suspect escapes and Zack begins to wonder who or what, exactly, he is pursuing. With the help of his girlfriend Libby Whitestone and her scent dog he finds evidence that links the crime to Roundtree. When they find other girls buried in Roundtree’s yard the case is blown wide open.

Meet the Author

As a child R Lawson developed a love of travel and an appreciation for the outdoors. He inherited his curiosity for and a love of the Old West from his grandfather, who was raised next to the Oregon Trail in Kansas and would speak of wagon trains rumbling by his home, and from his grandmother who grew up in a sod house near Indian Country and described hiding on a nearby hill when bands of Indians approached. His own father grew up in Coffeyville, Kansas, where the Dalton gang failed famously in their attempt to rob two banks at the same time.
R Lawson continued to quench his ongoing thirst for adventure whenever possible. He has climbed 5000 and 6000 meter peaks in five countries. A marathoner, he qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon. He has paddled the Dead River in Maine at flood, sky dived, and kayaked much of the New England Coast from Connecticut to Maine.
R Lawson's sense of adventure, along with his curiosity, love of history, and his "desire to see what most people never see" is evident in the pages of his books. He transports the reader to places that truly exist, places where he has been, and landscapes that readers may find and experience for themselves. He now lives on the Central Coast of California and continues his adventures as his writing allows.

    The Other, by R Lawson Gamble, transported me to Elk Wells, Arizona, a tiny town on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Many in the town had long thought that John Roundtree had been dabbling in things of a dark  supernatural nature, so when a little white girl is found dead on reservation land he becomes the prime suspect. FBI Agent Zack Tolliver is called in to investigate, and he enlists the help of Eagle Feather, an expert tracker, and Libby Whitestone and her bloodhound Blue. The tracks they find are far from ordinary because it seems as if a human turns into an animal, becoming a creature the Navajo call a Skinwalker. The tracks lead them to John Roundtree, and what they find at his residence seems to indicate that he is the perpetrator, so the case is closed. Zack is haunted by the fact that there were unanswered questions though, and when another dead girl is found in Palm Springs, CA, a few months later, Zack knows the killer is still on the loose and seems to be playing games with him. Can Zack figure out who or what is behind the killings, without losing his life in the process?

    The Other takes its readers on a suspense-filled mystery that really had me torn between the idea that the killer might be human or supernatural. The plot pulled me in and kept me riveted as each twist made me feel like I knew what would transpire next, only to be led in a different direction. Descriptive writing sets the scene, providing a visually stimulating picture of the setting, while also creating interesting, realistic characters. I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Zack and Libby, and Blue the bloodhound provided a few laughs! Mr. Gamble has the ability express emotion with his choice of words, providing a real glimpse of the friendship between Zack and Eagle Feather! I loved the paranormal aspects and it was obvious that Mr. Gamble did his research where Navajo legends and lore are concerned. I found myself fascinated by the idea of the mythological creature the Navajo call the Skinwalker. A fast-paced, suspense-filled mystery, with a blending of Native American lore, made this a fascinating read that kept its momentum until the shocking end!
