When jailed billionaire Charles Merrick hints publicly that he has stashed a fortune in an offshore cache, a school of sharks converges upon his release from federal prison.
Among his swindled victims is Judge Hammond Birk, the man who saved Gibson Vaughn's life when he was a troubled teenager. Now Gibson intends to repay that debt by recovering Merrick's victims' money.
But Gibson isn't the only one on the trail of the hidden fortune.
The promise of billions has drawn a horde of ruthless treasure hunters, including an edgy ex-con, a female bartender with a mysterious history, a Chinese spy with a passion for fly-fishing, and a veritable army of hardened mercenaries. To stay ahead of the sharks and win justice for his mentor, Gibson will need all his formidable skills. But at the end of the road, he'll still have to face "Poisonfeather" - a geopolitical secret that just might get Gibson killed...or worse.

This book ends in a cliffhanger, of which I am not a fan. I would much prefer each book in a series to be pretty much complete in and of itself and not a tease for things to come. Moreover, this second book did not reveal the fate of two of the characters from the first book, which I think is just taunting us.
That being said, I did enjoy this story and learning more about Gibson Vaughn and will probably invest in the third book of the series. If I were to consider just the story and performance, I would give this book a 3.8. I'm rating it a 3 because of the tease and taunt.

Shortstop was such a good book and I was so looking forward to the next book by Mr FitzSimmons. Poisonfeather was a disappointment. The plot wasn't as strong as Shortstop and I wasn't as invested in the characters. Worse, it ended in a cliffhanger. I wouldn't have bought the book and audio had I known that. Life is full of twists and turns, and I am at the point where I need a beginning, middle and end when I invest my time and money in a book. I may not be in a position to read the follow-up, and don't want the unresolved issues hanging in the back of my mind. Frankly, I consider authors who use cliffhangers to force their audience to buy another book/books to be ethically challenged. Poisonfeather is not a long book. There is no reason Mr. FitzSimmons couldn't have a satisfying ending.
Mr Cronin did an excellent job with the narration.
While I have it a point to recommend Shortstop to family and friends, I won't do the same with Poisonfeather.
