After a period of brutal isolation in a CIA black-site prison, former Marine and gifted hacker Gibson Vaughn is free - but with no idea where he was or how much time he's lost. Struggling to maintain his grip on reality, he races to return to the life he left behind. Angry and disoriented, his thoughts turn to vengeance and the man responsible for his rendition. But Gibson's drive for retribution and the ghosts of his violent past plunge him back into a world he wants only to escape.
As old enemies and once-trusted allies resurface, the architects of a murderous conspiracy will beat a sinister path to Gibson's doorstep. In discovering the shocking truth about those he thought he knew best, only one thing is certain: those responsible must be made to answer...and pay.

Huge disappointment- Confusing
The good news about being disappointed is that you reason to expect a different outcome. I loved The Short Drop and Poison Feather, books 1 and 2 in the Gibson Vaughan series. Cold Harbor is a sequel that cannot stand on its own. It is a confusing, rambling mess.
We find our hero, Gibson Vaughan in solitary confinement. He is delusional, holding lucid conversations with prominent, kind dead characters in his past novels. It took me going back to the last few chapters of Poison Feather to understand what was really transpiring. That should never happen in a sequel.
He not only estranged from his wife and daughter, (his love and dedication for them is his only reason for living), they are in hiding from him. There is never a clear reason why for this, or for subsequent changes in their relationships. What remains is severely damaged wimp of a man who used to be Gibson Vaughan.

End of the Gibson Vaugahn series?
I loved The Short Drop (Book 1 in the series), I actively disliked Poisonfeather which is Book 2, and I like Cold Harbor. This series is unlike and espionage series I have read or listened to. Unlike Poisonfeather, Cold Harbor ends without a cliffhanger. I suspect that there will be more novels in the series.
Author Matthew FitzSimmons' characters are interesting. The bad guys are very bad and the good guys including the protagonist are deeply flawed and capable of bad behavior. The plot is interesting and not very realistic, but Cold Harbor kept my interest throughout. There is a great plot twist near the end of the novel. Narration is outstanding.
