Jesse McDermitt has been grieving the loss of a loved one to terrorists. He's been holed up on his secluded island home for months, numbing his mind and body with endless, mundane tasks. But he has a plan for vengeance. A friend approaches Jesse seeking help for her dad who's been pressured into running drugs for a dangerous Cuban smuggler. When Jesse learns that the smuggler is also an arms merchant for Hezbollah, the terrorist organization responsible for the death of someone close, he once again looks to settle the score. Fast boats, beautiful underwater scenery, and blazing guns abound in this fast paced romp through the Caribbean, with stops in Cuba, Key West, and Cozumel, Mexico.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Fallen Hunter is Book 3 in the Jesse McDermitt/Caribbean Adventures series by Wayne Stinnett. At this point I am committed to listening to all 9 novels in the series. This series is a great find that I just happened to come across. McDermitt is a retired recon Marine sergeant now living in the middle Florida keys near Marathon. He has his own 2 acre island which is now well developed. He is also a member of a civilian military unit composed mostly of Navy SEALs that does special jobs for the US government. This novel is about taking down a group of Middle Eastern terrorists in a training camp in Cuba.
Stinnett does a great job of developing the repeating characters in the series. Nick Sullivan narrates the novels in this series. He is a good at narrating as George Guidall, Dick Hill, Will Patton, and maybe even Scott Brick.
I highly recommend this novel and this series. Although the series novels do not have to be read in order, the first two provide background information that is helpful in understanding the later stories.
It was everything I needed. I didnt want a deep Dickens type novel, i wanted an easy to listen, story with good charachters and a decent plot.
The rest of the series, beacause they have the same charachters. Theres a few authors who write this genre, but Wayne Stinnet seems to of created a very good little world which he keeps growing with eahc book.
No particular scene, but I enjoy him discussing the movements of special ops. He seems of have researched it well.
No, its not a deep novel that invokes emotion, just a good book to listen to while working or driving.
Im disappointed that Tina left him, she was hot!...in my mind :)

If you’re looking for a break from the cold winter, then “Fallen Hunter” is the perfect escape. A good mix of action and scenes from the keys make it a fun listen. The characters are a static but fun and the descriptions of the activities and views from the beach make me want to grab a rum punch and jump on a plane south. My biggest complaint is that other than one big thing that goes wrong each story, everything else along the way seems to go way too well for Jesse. Take a trip to the content keys with this well written and fun story from down south!
Mr. Sullivan does a great job bringing the characters to life. His accents and characters are fun to listen to and is pacing is very good. He really added to the enjoyment of this book.
I have read each book in this series up to this, one and they just keep getting better. A great blend of action and relationships. Looking forward to the next in the series.
