Warning This is an independent addition to The Short Drop, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTRODUCTION The Short Drop is a contemporary suspense thriller that covers many of the hot topics of today's headlines - technology, identify security, computer hacking, politics, and more. On one level it is an exciting mystery addressing the disappearance and likely murder of Suzanne Lombard. In the process of discovering what happened to Suzanne, the characters involved add even more layers of crime and intrigue making the situation ever more complex. SETTING The novel's events occur in three main locations, separated similarly to the book's structure. The most important events of the story in Part One take place primarily in Virginia, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas. The events in Part Two take place in Somerset, Pennsylvania (near Pittsburgh) and a few remote areas nearby. In Part Three, events take place in Atlanta, Georgia with some events occurring in North Carolina. While there is some deviation from this, Fitzsimmons focuses the major events of each section in these locations. STORY PLOT ANALYSIS The plot focuses on the efforts of Gibson Vaughn and a team of investigators to determine what happened when Suzanne Lombard disappeared ten years ago. As the story of their investigation unfolds, intricately connected sub-plots emerge providing the reader with a complex plot that is still easy to follow. As each layer of the plot is added, the reader is charged with keeping track of more characters, more information, and more connections. But Fitzsimmons tells the tale with clarity allowing the reader to remain engaged without losing sight of the action. The greatest tension arises from the fact that no character is quite who they seem to be and none of the characters can be completely trusted in at least some way.

But when strangers appear, the mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won't stop until they get it. . . . For more in this gritty world, join Lynn on an epic journey to find home in the companion novel, In a Handful of Dust.
