Publisher's Summary

A decade ago, fourteen-year-old Suzanne Lombard, the daughter of Benjamin Lombard - then a senator, now a powerful vice president running for the presidency - disappeared in the most sensational missing-person case in the nation's history. Still unsolved, the mystery remains a national obsession.
For legendary hacker and marine Gibson Vaughn, the case is personal - Suzanne Lombard had been like a sister to him. On the tenth anniversary of her disappearance, the former head of Benjamin Lombard's security asks for Gibson's help in a covert investigation of the case, with new evidence in hand.
Haunted by tragic memories, he jumps at the chance to uncover what happened all those years ago. Using his military and technical prowess, he soon discovers multiple conspiracies surrounding the Lombard family - and he encounters powerful, ruthless political players who will do anything to silence him and his team. With new information surfacing that could threaten Lombard's bid for the presidency, Gibson must stay one step ahead as he navigates a dangerous web to get to the truth.

Intriguing and fun

The first book in a long while that had me clueless. With most mysteries, you have a germ of an idea from the beginning about who the villain is. This book, I couldn't tell the villains from the victims until somewhere in the middle. No glimmer of the puppet master until almost the end. Tons of suspense in between.

This is the author's first published book. I can't wait for the next.

Hidden gem hiding among all the generic crap

What made the experience of listening to The Short Drop the most enjoyable?

A unique and likable main character that I was really rooting for.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I mean, you know things are going to turn out relatively all right, but there was enough attrition of tertiary character to keep you guessing about who was actually going to make it through unscathed.


Any additional comments?

Pleasantly surprised with this story and the quality of writing. The author has a bright future. Some better editing and attention to detail would put this book right up there with my favorites. Well worth the credit!
