A decade ago, fourteen-year-old Suzanne Lombard, the daughter of Benjamin Lombard--then a senator, now a powerful vice president running for the presidency--disappeared in the most sensational missing-person case in the nation's history. Still unsolved, the mystery remains a national obsession. For legendary hacker and marine Gibson Vaughn, the case is personal--Suzanne Lombard had been like a sister to him. On the tenth anniversary of her disappearance, the former head of Benjamin Lombard's security asks for Gibson's help in a covert investigation of the case, with new evidence in hand. Haunted by tragic memories, he jumps at the chance to uncover what happened all those years ago. Using his military and technical prowess, he soon discovers multiple conspiracies surrounding the Lombard family--and he encounters powerful, ruthless political players who will do anything to silence him and his team. With new information surfacing that could threaten Lombard's bid for the presidency, Gibson must stay one step ahead as he navigates a dangerous web to get to the truth.

Dennis Lehane returns to the streets of Mystic River with this love story wrapped in a crime story wrapped in a journey of faith—the basis for the major motion picture The Drop, from Fox Searchlight Pictures directed by Michaël Roskam, screenplay by Dennis Lehane, and starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and James Gandolfini. Three days after Christmas, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman looking for something to believe in.

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.
