Publisher's Summary

In the backcountry of the Florida Keys, you can see and hear trouble coming for miles in any direction. That is, if you're paying attention.

Jesse McDermitt lives in the backcountry and very little happens near him that he's not fully aware of. During a quiet moment, he watches a slow-moving shrimp trawler as it serenely cruises by, barely visible on the horizon at the edge of the three-mile limit.

The tranquility of the moment is shattered when the trawler is suddenly demolished in an enormous explosion. What caused the explosion? And why was a woman from Jesse's past on board?

To find the answers to these questions and more, Jesse and friends will work from Miami to Key West, then across the water to Fort Myers. When the bad guys hit too close to home, Jesse retaliates. Furiously.

EXCELLENT SERIES!!

I've just completed the entire Jessie McDermott series. I listened to them one after another and have finally hit the end. I cannot recommend these books HIGHLY enough! These books are so well written. The characters are lively and colorful. I you're and action lover I think this series will is a good fit. Although each is s stand alone and they don't need to be listened to in order I would suggest doing so. There are some relationships that develop over time. There is also a spin off series (Chasity Styles) that have some of the same characters.
I was very impressed with Wayne Stinnett's personal story of becoming an author. Here's a man who was not college educated and drove a truck and was able to turn out thrilling books with great plots. Most of us only dream of doing something like this but others actually have the talent to.
Nick Sullivan narrated all of the Jessie McDermott books flawlessly.
This entire series has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS!!
If you have kindle unlimited these books are Free to read and $8.03 after taxes to purchase the audio book.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Another excellent Jesse McDermitt novel!

Author Wayne Stinnett has now released 12 novels in this series along with 3 novels in the Charity Styles series in three years. These novels are character driven suspense mysteries which tend, in my opinion, to deal excessively on the love life of Jesse McDermitt with his continuing string of girl friends. In any case, author Stinnett has done a great job of fully developing the several key characters in the series. The series is set in the Florida keys. Nick Sullivan does a wonderful job of narrating all of Stinnett's audio novels.

Rising Fury

Another great read from WS. I enjoy the boating scenes, the Keys, the fishing and of course Rusty's bar. This series of books really got me started at Audible and since then I have branched out to other series, but this one remains my all-time favorite. Not too complicated and the plot follows along naturally. If you like the Marines, boats or just having the good guys always win, then this series is for you. I just wish WS would pump them out faster.

I love listening to Jesse’s adventures

I am a devoted fan of Wayne Stinnett’s and ALWAYS get the recorded version AFTER reading the printed version. I have also purchased signed copies of most of Wayne’s books.
The recorded versions always allow me to get further insight into the story line, and have the added benefit of having good listening material while driving on long road trips.
The Rusty Anchor Bar & Grill song at the end is fantastic.

I love the new character developments

I love the action & diving and boating details too. Nick does a great Jamaican accent. Eric's song at the end sounded good, I like it. Wayne is one of my all time favorite authors. I love his stories & the world he created.

Fantastic as always

Just love the series. Have both read and listened to all of them. Feels like I'm right there on the ocean with Jesse.

Bonus song by Eric Stone was wonderful.
