Besides the Jackie line, I found the character of Jesse to be a little more shallow than the other books. Just not the best of the series. I object that it is always the woman who is having to "seduce" Jesse. Here is a virile, intelligent super hero who has to have the woman always bring up the sex and make the first moves... such as: "Jackie had an idea how to kill some time..." It just doesn't play with his character for me.
The typos were just overlooked too often, again. This author actually pays a "professional" to edit and proof these books. They have both fallen short here in my opinion. Especially the proof reader. She has been off in the other books and I have let it slide. However, these are typos that even I, reading with a migraine, caught. Such as, "He'll will; Oour interviews; etc.
Although I do have my problems with some of the writing and the character portrayal, it is still a very good book for light reading. I am going to think, though, before I buy into the next book. After reading the sample of it that is offered by Amazon, I am not really too enthralled with the idea of reading that one. But that is for the next book.
As this is a review of this book, I have to say that it is a stand-alone book, even though it is part of the series. That is so important to me! In general, it is a good light read that anyone who has enjoyed the rest of this series, or books like this, you will love this book, also.
The three stars are an example of what I have felt about this book as well as the rest of the series. But I do think you should read this one if you have read the rest of this series!
Fallen Pride includes multiple step-by-step routes through the Florida Keys, taking the President of the U.S. out fishing, participating in another wedding, characters continuously bringing boats "up to plane", name dropping of fish that I've never heard of before - sans descriptions and repeated morning or evening rituals - just like in the previous books of the series that I've read to date. Typos and added/missing words continue, Red Stripe Beer and a full thermos of Columbian coffee are always available and Jesse has sex with a new female character...I do love that dog, though!
The author continues to add more and more characters to his story which doesn't allow readers an opportunity to get to know them individually - might need to generate a "cast of characters" sheet going forward to keep track of them all. He does show his quick wit and sarcasm via snippets from these characters - making me laugh out loud several times. I'm also wondering how much more construction can take place on Jesse's island.
I've already purchased the last book in the series and expect to learn more about water routes and those other things mentioned earlier. However, I look forward to see what kind of mischief Jesse and company will get into next - as we go forward, it appears like Jesse is expanding and getting deeper into black ops - perhaps I'll learn more in the next installment.
I still recommend reading the series to learn more about life in the Florida Keys and covert operations by former military specialists who are now employed by Homeland Security.

Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel
But it was too heavy on military tradition and behavior, Hoooha.
Also, there were a lot of moving parts and lots of characters, it's like the author wanted to roll three books into one. Lastly, why did the author give respect to DHS head Chertoff, who turned out to be un-American. (Yes, I toned that down)
In spite of the heavy military tradition, the plot has the president going fishing for a day on our hero's boat. The boat is not inspected by the secret service before, and spends the night tied up to a dock unattended. Then, while fishing, the Secret Service detail is on a different boat!
Now, the action was great, I loved the Key West parts, the flying, the boating, evidently, this former marine has an unlimited supply of money, and keeps inviting more people to live on his private island.
I remember when he built the house himself....my it's grown.
