Publisher's Summary

When Jesse McDermitt retires from the Marine Corps at age 37, he has no idea what he will do for the rest of his life. He only knows he doesn't want to spend the coming winter anywhere cold. His greatest skill is killing people from up to a mile away, and he knows there aren't many job opportunities in the civilian world for that. However, he also knows his way around boats and has an old friend living free and easy in the Florida Keys. Being an experienced diver and angler, he immediately heads south toward Key West and the end of the road.
With a single comment, a waitress in a waterfront restaurant in north Key Largo shakes loose a long dormant dream and Jesse runs with it. With the help of friends, new and old, he buys just the right boat to live on and soon starts a part time charter business. Danger lurks in the sleepy little town of Marathon, in the middle of the Florida Keys, as well as in the swamps of the Everglades. But danger doesn't expect to run into a man like Jesse. A man who will not only respond swiftly in facing it, but with a vengeance unexpected.

Mary Sue alert

Beginning of the story was interesting. However, the main character developed into the type who is smarter, tougher, rich, and always gets the girl... or girls.

He is very similar in premise to Dirk Pitt, Reacher, Bond, etc...

I prefer more normal characters who aren't so over the top.

How many novel series do we need with an ex special forces guy who is rich, kicks everyone's butt, and has flocks of swooning women?

Different Pace and Rythm

This is a linear story that starts with the retirement of Jesse McDermitt from the military and follows his life forward. There are no flashbacks and no parallel stories happening at the same time that all of a sudden come together at the end. The book is simply the story of Jesse's life after the military. There is some action but that is not the focus of the book, more like a bit of adventure in Jesse's life. It is interesting to learn a bit about charter boats, the keys and life in the keys. The characters are likable. If you are looking for an interesting and different story location this is worth the credit this is for you. If you thrive on high action (Thor, Child, Flynn) this is not the book for you.
