Publisher's Summary

Gibson Vaughn, hero of the bestselling novel The Short Drop, returns in a smoldering thriller.
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.

Major disappointment after The Short Drop!

The first novel in the Gibson Vaughn series, The Short Drop, was a solid 5 star suspense mystery. I would like to be able to award Poisonfeather at least 3 stars, but this novel is simply awful. Matthew FitzSimmons had real promise as an author, but after this novel I will never purchase another of his novels. I regret taking the time to listen to it.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"


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.
