Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

When Jesse McDermitt retires from the Marine Corps at age 37, he has no idea what he will do for the rest of his life. He only knows he doesn't want to spend the coming winter anywhere cold. His greatest skill is killing people from up to a mile away and he knows there aren't many job opportunities in the civilian world for that.

However, he also knows his way around boats and has an old friend living free and easy in the Florida Keys. Being an experienced diver and angler, he immediately heads south toward Key West and the end of the road.

With a single comment, a waitress in a waterfront restaurant in north Key Largo shakes loose a long dormant dream and Jesse runs with it. With the help of friends, new and old, he buys just the right boat to live on and soon starts a part time charter business.

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. A man who will not only respond swiftly in facing it, but with a vengeance unexpected.

4.0 su 5 stelle Saving my pennies for the next one! 13 settembre 2015
Di Donna - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I downloaded this book as an audio file so I could listen while doing other things. I'm a 70-year-old physically disabled female, living alone with a cat (of course) and many would probably think I wouldn't like this book at all. It's a story about a recently-retired Marine, 38, divorced, and at loose ends. Until he goes to visit a dear friend in Marathon FL and decides to buy a boat and become a fishing/underwater photography guide. This is the prequel to Stinnett's "Fallen" series and apparently tells his readers the back stories of the main characters in those books. I haven't read the series yet but I certainly intend to! This is a good story, well-presented, feels authentic. There is some violence with an obvious hero; there is some sex but it's mostly implied with a wink and pulled curtains. The characters feel like real humans who do good things. And stupid things. And bad things.

The narration on the audio file is clear and very well done. The male narrator even manages to imply a female voice without sounding patronizing or just plain dumb.

Overall I've given this book 4 stars. I have no complaints about anything in or about the book, but I don't usually give 5 stars unless a book knocks my socks off (and I almost never wear socks).

3.0 su 5 stelle A Very Dry Travis McGee but OK 3 agosto 2014
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is not one I would normally read. But since the setting was the Florida keys I was interested, especially since I lived in Marathon for years. The book was worth the read since I learned a lot about guns and Marine slang. The storyline, a retired bad ass Marine turned charter captain, seemed to take second place to his ability to cope with no longer being on active duty. I was disappointed that the author was not more descriptive of the scenery,emotions of the characters and all the action scenes. My thoughts as I was reading one of the many action scenes was that the book reminded me of the old TV show, Dragnet, "just the facts mam, just the facts." The Florida keys are rich in history,beautiful turquoise water and full of unbelievably colorful characters. I wish the author had not been so stingy with his words. The story would not have kept my interest had I not actually lived where Jessie McDermott lived during the same time and could visually picture the events and surroundings. I'm hoping that Mr.Stinnet will get better as he continues with the series.

4.0 su 5 stelle No Depth 16 novembre 2015
Di Will Decker - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

The story was good and the editing flawless. Yet there was a distinct lack of energy or life emanating from the words. It was told first person in a very dry manner. Too much was left for the reader’s imagination. In short, it was lacking hutzpah, no real excitement aside from the story itself. A painting that isn’t finished. A sound foundation of a story but lacking color and energy. I couldn’t help but feel the author was just going through the motions of relaying a tale in much the same way many kids do in school when given a writing assignment. It’s a good story, but a few embellishments would have added tremendous value to the reading experience. I wanted to feel the protagonist’s pain and anxiety when he left the Marine Corp; I didn’t. I wanted to feel the joy and triumph he felt when he won over the girl; I didn’t. And I especially wanted to feel his rejection when he was turned down at the end of the book, a poignant moment that many readers might relate to; I didn’t. In fact, I didn’t feel much of anything throughout the entire story. I gave it 4 stars for the story, not the lackluster reading experience.

3.0 su 5 stelle It's Okay 7 marzo 2016
Di jbsilverspring - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I read this because it was set in Florida and because I'm the wife of a retired Marine. It was an okay read maybe a little to much unnecessary detail in some areas as well as an overuse of "Marine" termonology. There was not enough action for me and the action there was seemed to be spaced out. All in all it was an okay effort and I did enjoy the fact that I recognized the parts of Florida described.

2.0 su 5 stelle Nothing Much Happening 28 ottobre 2015
Di Richard A Decker - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Well you could call this "A day (or 2 or 3) in the life of a retired Jarhead." I gave up after about a third of the book - 80+ pages. He buys a car, he buys a boat, he buys an island. The most exciting part was a short barroom brawl. If this is the plot, it is extremely boring. If it is not the plot, 80 pages of nothing happening is too much. It gets my "NO MAS" award. The only reason I don't give it a "1" star is that he doesn't waste words.
