Fallen Out - Wayne Stinnett - (4th Novel) – (First in the Caribbean Adventure series).
When Gunny Jesse McDermitt decides to become a charter skipper in Florida when he is retired from the Marine Corps after twenty-years. Using a two-million dollar inheritance, he buys a top-of-the-range motor yacht (Gasper’s Revenge), equips it and hires a local (Jimmy), who has the local knowledge and skills, and sets up the business. He then buys and island and plans to build a house. In the bar he falls foul of a vicious gang of kidnappers / sex-slavers and of course wins the fight.
The characters are interesting and the writing style easy to read and enjoyable – so why only three stars?
I expected more from the 4th novel of an author who is topping the Kindle charts in the US. The essential elements of a story are missing. Everything is too easy for Jesse: he has no real goal beyond running the business; everything he does works out without complications; nothing gets in his way; he’s never really in danger; never has to take a tough decision. In essence there is no CONFLICT and so nothing to drive the story. Even the weak ending lacks drama and emotion.
Hopefully the next novel will be better and earn Wayne Stinnetts place in the charts.
