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.

Excellent action thriller with great narration.

Fallen Out is Book 1 of the Caribbean Adventure series. At 5 hours it is short for a novel but the other novels in the series are longer. The suspense is rather light. The 37 year old protagonist, Jesse McDermitt, recently retired from a career in the US Marines after which he bought a luxury boat and takes out fishing and other excursions from his dock in the Florida Keys. He manages to run across lots of bad guys as well as beautiful and friendly women. Nick Sullivan narrates wonderfully. This novel is nice, light listening.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

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?
