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 nove..Show More »ls 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.

Nick Sullivan is becoming one of my favorite narrators. I remember him from Vince Flynn's early Mitch Rapp novels before George Guidall took over the Rapp franchise. Sullivan has improved since then.
There is a lot to like about this novel, but it does not quite justify a 5 star rating unlike novels 3 and 4 in this series. It is still a very worth..Show More »while military/espionage thriller.

This may be the best novel in the Jesse McDermitt series. It is set in the coastal town of Beaufort SC rather than in the Florida keys. Beaufort is a..Show More » few miles north of Savannah GA and it is the location of both the US Marine training camp at Parris Island and the Hilton Head Island and Fripp Island resorts. (Author Pat Conroy lived in Beaufort and his novels are set there.) It is also the current home of Wayne Stinnett, the author. Like all of the books in this series the action and suspense occur on boats and on islands. Retired US Marine Jesse McDerrmitt is similar to Jack Reacher in his style and methods, except that he is wealthy. Narrator Nick Sullivan is superb. I highly recommend this series as well as the Charity Styles series by the same author.

Author Wayne Stinnett has never disappointed in his 12 novels to date. Heartless Charity in the Charity Styles series will be released in a few months. When author Stinnett selected Nick Sullivan to narrate all of his novels he made a great choice. Sullivan does a stellar job narrating this and Stinnett's other novels. Fallen Hero and the entire 10 book series are VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. For maximum enjoyment the novels should be listened to in order written.
