"It takes a talented author to take the reader from the written page and place him or her in the story. There were times when reading Fallen Out that I felt as if I were there, in the Keys, watching the story unfold as a spectator." -- Randy Mixter, author of Scarlet and Gold

When Jesse McDermitt retires from the Marine Corps, he has no idea what he will do for the rest of his life. At 37, his greatest skill is killing people from up to a mile away. He knows there aren't many job opportunities in the civilian world for that. However, he knows the south Florida waters, is an experienced diver, loves to fish, and knows his way around a boat.

A waitress in a waterfront restaurant in north Key Largo gives him an idea and he runs with it. An old friend helps get him set up as a charter fishing and dive boat Captain and a new friend helps him buy just the right boat.

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, who will not only respond swiftly, but with a vengeance unexpected.

Meet the Author

I wrote Fallen Out as a response to the many emails I received from readers wanting to know more about my characters' pasts. It was written as a prequel to the others after publishing Fallen Palm, Fallen Hunter, and Fallen Pride. This book was a lot of fun to write for me, as it takes the main character, Jesse, from his last day as a Marine Gunnery Sergeant, to his new life in the Florida Keys, where he's a wet-behind-the-ears boot, with more questions than answers. It's a bit shorter than the other books in the series. In fact, it only took six weeks to write and another two to edit and publish. I hope you'll enjoy this entry into Jesse's world.
