Recent Comments "Cold Harbor"
If an author has only written three books, can you say that their latest is "vintage [author's name]"? Well, I don't care. I've just read Matthew FitzSimmons' third book, Cold Harbor, which is the third book in the Gibson Vaughn series, and I can say unequivocally that it is vintage FitzSimmons, in that it kicks ass just as much as the first one did. Why isn't this guy famous yet?Gibson Vaughn was kept in a CIA black-site prison, isolated from all human contact for a significant period of time. [...]
3.5 After a time, actually 18 months, though the wouldn't know the length of this until later, spent in a CIA run facility, in solitary confinement, Gibson is unceremoniously dropped on the same airport runway he was taken from. No longer of sound mind, with absolutely no means, accompanied by bear and his father, dead figures from his past, Gibson turns to one of the only friends he can count on.These types of espionage thrillers are ones that I have previously only dipped into occasionally. No [...]
Cold Harbor was EXACTLY what I was looking for in the next Gibson Vaughn book! A couple of years ago I fell in love with the series; The Short Drop was a debut that blew away and I had the absolute pleasure of jumping on the bandwagon before it became the “it” book overnight. *Brushing shoulder off* While Poisonfeather (book 2) wasn’t my favorite, I can understand and respect where the author wanted to take us and still found it an enjoyable read. But old Harbor?! This one was something s [...]
Cold Harbor is the third book in a series, and some of it won’t make sense if you haven’t read the first two. My recommendation would be to binge read all three because then the cliffhangers at the ends of the first two books won’t irritate you.There’s no doubt in my mind that Matthew FitzSimmons can write. His story telling is excellent. Everything flows so smoothly. His characters are also well defined. I loved Swonger in Poisonfeather and I was happy to see him in this book. Having Du [...]
Cold Harbor is the third in the Gibson Vaughn series by Mathhew Fitzsimmons, a thrilling trio of espionage, hacking, politics and murder that goes deep within the US government. After 18 months of harsh imprisonment in a black ops site, Vaughn now wants revenge. He's trying to put his life back together, get rid of the "ghosts" from his past and move forward but his need for revenge and his past won't allow him to do that. Let me say at this point that I wanted to read this book because of the b [...]
I'm going to be the minority here but this book was just okay at best for me. I should note that this is the third book in a series - a series that I have not read previously. Usually books work well as stand alone books for me but I am guessing that I may have enjoyed this book more if I had read the previous books in the series prior to reading this one.Gibson Vaughn is set free after being kept in isolation at a CIA black site prison. Initially he does not know his whereabouts or just how lon [...]
3.5 stars, rounded up because I love this series.Could have been a 5, but I struggled for the first 150 pages trying to remember who's who. I think this affected my ability to get more engaged in the plot moving forward. By the time things started to ramp up, (for me it was Well over the mid way mark) the book was over. I did find the ending satisfactory, but this is definitely not a stand alone read.There are some shining moments here, like the side bar conversations with Gibson Vaugh's decease [...]
This ARC was provided compliments of NetGalley. Gratitude sent to Thomas & Mercer for making this pre-release available.What might happen to the psyche of the human mind when all form of communication has been totally stripped away? Hard to imagine. The author stepped forward with a hard-boiled answer. Acute psychosis. In this case, the mind's manufactured way of survival. I was full in. The main character's shattered self was well-defined. It haunts me just to think about it. Him.Gibson Vau [...]
Just okay.Read the first book in this series and founded interesting, but not this one. Started slow and most parts was really slow and boring. Whole plot didn't made any sense.
Gibson Vaughn is back & he’s not doing well. Eighteen months in complete isolation has left him clinging to his last shred of sanity. When abruptly freed, he has nothing but 2 travelling companions…the ghosts of his father & childhood fiend Bear. Gib knows it’s not normal to talk to the dead but after losing everything, he takes comfort in their familiar faces.Once he makes it home, Gib tries to pick up the pieces but never loses sight of his goal. The man responsible for his incar [...]
I received an arc from the publisher Thomas & Mercer via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I loved the previous two books from this author. Let's hope the suspence will be equally thrilling in this one.RTC
Check out all of my reviews at: avonnalovesgenresCOLD HARBOR (Gibson Vaughn, #3) by Matthew FitzSimmons satisfied this fan immensely!Even though I do not enjoy cliffhangers, Gibson Vaughn just got under my thriller loving skin and I had to keep reading on in the series. I am so glad that I did. I had no idea how Mr. FitzSimmons would get Gibson moving forward from book #2 to book #3, but he managed it with the additional emotional satisfaction of giving Gibson a sort of completion and happiness [...]

Matthew Fitzsimmons is an incredible author. I highly anticipated this book, and I was not disappointed. This story is so well rounded, and ties into the first two books of the series pretty well. The writing is so imaginative yet realistic. The characters are still being developed really well despite this being the third book in the series. A lot of my unanswered questions from the first two books were answered, which was pretty satisfying. The beginning made me nervous because it was quite slo [...]
it was nice to finally get to this novel . This author is a good writer. I had a little trouble getting into it at first for it had been a while since the second novel and many novels read in between time. It was a while until the story started coming bac to me from the first two after all it was a pretty complex story--wish he would had finished this one sooner. The story had a good pace to it and did not get bogged down to much. The novel had a bitter sweet ending to it-but I guess that was th [...]
With the death of Poisonfeather (Book #2), Gibson Vaughn is released from an CIA black site isolation cell, but after 18 months, his sanity is questionable. He spends much of the book speaking to the dead (his father and his friend, Bear.) While pretending to re-integrate into society, he plans retribution for his imprisonment, but his long-time nemesis (Calista) blackmails him into rescuing an old friend from a military contractor, reuniting him with Jenn. Of course, Calista has her own agenda. [...]
Following the Empire Strikes Back-sized cliffhanger that ended Poisonfeather, Matthew FitzSimmons’ messed-up ex-Marine hacker Gibson Vaughn returns after an eighteen-month absence and is looking for revenge. And although Gibson wants a heaping served ice cold, his thought processes are similarly frozen. His interactions with PTSD-originated ghosts clearly show is not on the top of his game as he was in the debut The Short Drop. FitzSimmons does a fantastic job at getting into Vaughn’s compli [...]
I was given an advance reader's copy of Cold Harbor with no expectation or obligation to write a review, however I feel nothing short of compelled to share my thoughts on what I believe to be a truly exceptionally well written book. This is the 3rd in the Gibson Vaughn series. The first in the series (The Short Drop) was universally praised and a resounding success. The 2nd (Poison Feather) was the proverbial love/hate relationship with readers, myself being on the less than enthusiastic side of [...]
The opening of this novel is just absolutely awesome. A man who has been locked in a CIA cell somewhere is released and he has to cope with what are now voices in his head and a world of change after an eighteen-month disappearance. They say you can't go home again and for Vaughn that is just so true. What an opening! So out of sorts. So confused. And then the problem becomes that, for those of us, who didn't catch the first two books in the series, there is a nefarious plot and Vaughn wants ven [...]
Following the terrible end to the previous book in the series, Matthew FitzSimmons was successful in his ploy as I immediately bought Cold Harbor (sic). Gibson Vaughn is unceremoniously freed from an imprisonment of indeterminate length in an unknown location. With a loose grip on his sanity and hellbent on vengeance, Vaughn embarks on a course of action the leads to unsurprising carnage.Like the previous books in the series, Cold Harbor is very well written in a style that suits the genre perfe [...]
Gibson VaughnI couldn’t wait for this book to come out after reading the first two. I love this author. The plot was unbelievable- truly. But the way it was written made you believe it could happen. I was on edge of seat the entire book. I will read any books by this author. Gibson Vaughn is another Jack Reacher!
(Disclosure: Received an ARC from the author.)This is a dark view into a broken psyche, and what someone will do when they think they're untethered from anything and anyone who's important to them. It is, at times, very hard to sympathize with Gibson – moreso than in prior books in this series – which I think was FitzSimmons' point. Sure, you can focus on what he does – and like me, you'll probably find it hard to excuse it. But it's just as important to think about why he is doing it, and [...]
Three word review: "Gibson Vaughn unhinged". I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this series. The second installment ends with a (gasp!) cliffhanger. I usually consider endings like that to be a hackneyed method of manipulating the reader's emotions. I read Poisonfeather right after it was released and the cliffhanger made me panic when I saw that the release date for Cold Harbor was October 2017. However, I could kiss Matthew Fitzsimmons on the forehead once I started to read Cold Harbo [...]
What do you do when your Country decides you are collateral damage and disposable? How do you cope with 18 months alone, in the dark, with no human contact? What happens when you are pushed to the edge of sanity but you have the ability to realize that insanity is one short step away? Can you walk that thin line, find the answers, and make yourself whole? These are the questions that confront Gibson Vaughn in the third book of the Gibson Vaughn series. This book punches so many hot buttons; righ [...]

Having read the first two books in this series I was always going to read this one. I would suggest this needs to be read as part of the series rather than a standalone and my particular favourite of the series is book 1 so start there. We are reunited with Gibson Vaughn at a particularly low point and I will confess to finding the first half of this book pretty hard going. I enjoyed the remainder much more and I’m happy enough with where we left Gibson at the end. If there is a 4th book I wou [...]
Thoroughly enjoyed although I was a little creep-ed out by the protagonists imprisonment and subsiqent treatment by his captors during his stay. Its hard to not feel simpathetic to the main characters plight as you get to know them in as the series progresses. Overall if your a fan of a thrillers where the ending isn't as obvious as a generic, played-out predictable thriller where you can predict the complete story line half way into the second chapter.
Every thing you want in a good bookThe Gibson Vaughn series has been a surprise from its start. The biggest surprise in the first was that it was the author's first book, in this one it is that the complexity of interactions and the trial of a man's soul can be so well captured in word. I would explain but this is a book you need to read. If you were not as pleased with the results of the last book do not worry this one makes the first book look simple.
