Then came the dog. Don't get me wrong; I love books with dogs, but this wasn't really a dog. No, it was just a cheap tool used by the author. There was no real dogness to the character.
Well, one mistake can be overlooked, I reasoned.
Then came the woman. The character was described as a woman, but "she" acted completely like a dude. Another cheap tool used by the author to manipulate the story without any basis in realism.
The the action stopped and the plot degraded into a jumbled mess. This went on for about fifty pages of nonsense.
Then the action started again, but by this time, I really didn't care about the characters. The climax came and went without participation from the protagonist- very unfulfilling.
The denouement was also insipid.
I would put this Fallen Palm to rest and make a different selection.
This was the first Jesse McDermitt novel in the series that I read and I enjoyed it. My disposable income for book purchases has been very limited for a couple of years so I appreciate it a lot when authors offer a book free, which is how I came by this one. I immediately wanted to read the others but it was not possible. I've read a couple more, including the prequel, as Wayne has offered them free. Again, my thanks. Fallen Palm made me want to visit the Keys, something I never wanted, as I am somewhat afraid of deep water and that Seven Mile Bridge was daunting to me. Jesse is a likable character, with human flaws as we all have. His first wife did not behave well, to say the least, but he deals with it. I liked his serendipitous visit to his friend and the new career that came of it. I didn't like what happened to his second wife, but in fiction as in real life, bad, bad stuff happens. And the perpetrators don't always get their just deserts. I do recommend this book and the rest of the series.
I'd like to add, the readers who trashed this book would do well to re-read and edit their reviews. Misspelled words and bad grammar do not give me a lot of confidence in what someone is trying to say.
After retiring from the Marine Corps 6 years earlier Jesse McDermitt has made his home on a remote Island in the Florida Keys, where he runs a fishing charter boat. When Alex, the woman he loves, returns to the Keys to live there Jesse decides now might be the time to finally leave his past behind and begin a new life with her. When his old friend Russ dies in an unlikely scuba diving mishap, Jesse wonders if it was accidental. When he and Russ’ son Deuce subsequently discover that Russ was murdered, Jesse feels compelled to track down the killer.
However Jesse doesn’t count on being caught up in the hunt for a terrorist cell as a consequence of being forced to join a special ops team within a secret government agency. A quest which inadvertently endangers the woman he loves and begs the question: Will Jess be able save the day?
The author is clearly familiar with the Florida Keys and has really captured its atmosphere well. The scenes are vividly detailed which makes you feel like you are actually there. I really like the fact that although the hero saves the day, he’s not invincible and that his actions have consequences. This vulnerability made the character more human, the story that much more realistic and sets the book apart from a lot of other adventure stories.
Overall a great action and adventure novel set in interesting surroundings that fans of the genre won’t want to miss.
