"I enjoyed reading this story, intrigued by life in the Keys and the romance of the ocean. I have learned a few things from reading this book and purchased the next book in the series to see what happens next to Mr. McDermitt. Great job Mr. Stinnett! Looking forward to the rest of the series." - John Podlaski, author of Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel"Jesse McDermitt is my kinda guyand his adventurous spirit is something I aspire to. Well written withpoignant details and intricate plot lines, Fallen Out is just the typeof book I read. Looking forward to the next in the series.

"It takes a talented author to take the reader from the written page andplace him or her in the story. There were times when reading Fallen Outthat I felt as if I were there, in the Keys, watching the story unfoldas a spectator." - Randy Mixter, author of Scarlet and Gold
"I just discovered this series and really enjoyed Fallen Out. The author obviously knows his way around boats and the Florida Keys, an area I have some familiarity with. His descriptions of the locations and lifestyle are spot on, and his writing style is easygoing and fun to read. I'm hooked! Before I had finished reading the first book in the series I had already downloaded the second." - Nick Russell, author of the Big Lake Series
From 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.
