Key West's sultry summer heat isn't for the faint of heart. But Michal Grabowski is running from a Pittsburgh cocaine dealer intent on killing him in a slow and painful manner, and Key West is the end of the road.
Retired Marine Jesse McDermitt enjoys the summer heat and quiet solitude of his tiny island home in the back country. When Jesse discovers that Michal's would-be killer is connected to recent murders in the Bahamas, he agrees to help the young man. Jesse doesn't like murderers, smelly crack monsters or drug dealers running amok in his territory. Particularly when one of them was responsible for the destruction of his charter boat.
Between a running gun battle with a group of cow hunters stretching from Key West Bight to the Everglades, a shotgun-toting Key West tarot card reader, a retired Jamaican mystic, and a rising body count, there's little time for Jesse to just relax and watch the sun go down.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Fallen Honor is novel #7 in the Jesse McDermitt series by Wayne Stinnett. It is an outstanding action thriller. Nick Sullivan's narration is superb.
Another outstanding book from Stinnett. The characters have develop well over the series, and friends who I have recommended the first book to are now deeper into the series.
The performance is great, transition between characters is flawless, although some accents are a bit off, (the Australian needs some work) that doesn't take anything away from Sullivan's consistently high and engaging narration.
I've left off one star off as there is always room for improvement, hopefully it'll push Stinnett to carry on and write more.
