Editorial Reviews

The protagonist of Others literally begins his journey in hell as a tormented soul until two angels make him a proposition for a chance at redemption through a mission on the surface. Reborn as a private investigator in England with no memory of his past life, he is sent on an investigation that takes him to a nursing home and unlocks mysterious secrets of his personal and the demons of Others. Kris Dyer performs the audiobook with a gripping and macabre style that puts you into the detective's plight. Any fan of James Herbert's will delight at this chilling and inventive tale that keeps your blood pumping until the very end.

Publisher's Summary

The ugly truth. Nicholas Dismas is a Private Investigator, but like no other that has gone before him. He carries a secret to which not even he has the answer. Dismas is hired to find a missing baby. One that was taken away at birth... Or was it?
His investigation takes him to a mysteriously located place called Perfect Rest, a nursing home for the elderly. Here Dismas will discover the dark secret of the Others. And in an astonishing and spectacular finale he will resolve the enigma of his own existence.
James Herbert was one of Britain’s greatest popular novelists and our #1 best-selling writer of chiller fiction. Widely imitated and hugely influential, he wrote 23 novels which have collectively sold over 54 million copies worldwide and been translated into 34 languages.
Born in London in the forties, James Herbert was art director of an advertising agency before turning to writing fiction in 1975. His first novel, The Rats, was an instant bestseller and is now recognised as a classic of popular contemporary fiction. Herbert went on to publish a new top ten best-seller every year until 1988. He wrote six more bestselling novels in the 1990s and three more since: Once, Nobody True and The Secret of Crickley Hall. Herbert died in March 2013 at the age of 69.

Critic Reviews

"Herbert was by no means literary, but his work had a raw urgency. His best novels, The Rats and The Fog, had the effect of Mike Tyson in his championship days: no finesse, all crude power. Those books were best sellers because many readers (including me) were too horrified to put them down.” (Stephen King)
"There are few things I would like to do less than lie under a cloudy night sky while someone read aloud the more vivid passages of Moon. In the thriller genre, do recommendations come any higher?" (Andrew Postman, The New York Times Book Review)
"Herbert goes out in a blaze of glory" (Daily Mail)

Upon his death a movie star handsome man jumps at the chance when offered another life to redeem himself from living such a selfish and vain life. He will have no memory of his current life and will return horribly disfigured.

As the story unravels the purpose behind his deformities become relevant and he must do whatever he can to stop the gruesom horror that he uncovers.

A good thriller with a original story.

An entertaining story

This was the first audible book I purchased to 'entertain' me on my long drives. I can say that I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed the plot of the story and it did make my journey less tedious and long. Worth a listen.
