Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestselling series.

To stop a terrorist threat, Gibson Vaughn must trust a man who can’t be trusted.

Former Marine, brilliant hacker, and wanted fugitive Gibson Vaughn is off the grid in the Caymans. Until the ice-cold assassin Tinsley draws him out of the shadows. Complying with the man who murdered his father and left Gibson for dead? In the war against terror, never say never.

Especially when half a million lives are at stake.

Tinsley's in possession of a heavily encrypted thumb drive. But the details of the plot - the motive, the targets, and the day of execution - are a mystery. The one certainty is that a tenuous truce must be made. After joining forces with Tinsley, Gibson and his team have their mission: access the drive and abort a massacre in the making.

How far can Gibson really trust Tinsley? Time will tell. Right now they’re both running out of it as they race across Europe to find an elusive cyber-psycho behind the mother of all malware.

Whoever said to keep your friends close but your enemies closer never meant it like this.

Deviant

Never could connect with characters. Bad guys were depraved and evil. Good guys not very competent. Story somewhat interesting but lots of dead time in the story telling. Narration excellent. Might be better to read not listen to.

Good but not the best of series

good story, but a lot of moving parts that blur the story. Hard to keep the players straight.

I wish I had started with the first one

I wish I had started with the first one in the series.

I don't remember why I put this book in my list, but this time I think I made a good choice. The only unfortunate thing is what I said in the title of the review.

I am upset that I did not start to read from the first installment in the Gibson Vaughn series. Not that you cannot understand what is going on; only that it would have been interesting to see why the main characters are in the situation they are now.

From now on, though, I will not blame people that do not care if they don't start a series from the first book. If the writer is good and knows what they are doing (and Fitzsimmons really is one), it really doesn't matter and any book will serve as an entry point for a series, as long as the story is captivating. As the narrator says at one point in the novel about Gibson's thoughts, "His glass house was not safety rated for stones that size." Mine neither.

The thriller gripped me from the very beginning, then I lost a little interest, but kept going and then the complexities of the plot grabbed me again to the very end.

I will now have to add the other books to my endless reading list. I want - need? - to know a lot more about Gibson, Jenn and Hendricks and their escapades around the world.

The narration was phenomenal. I really enjoyed the voices made by James Cronin and the accents are really good - as far as I can tell for I am no specialist!

Didn’t like as much I as I thought.

The narrator is fantastic. He is calm but expressive, and can flip accents between characters with ease.

The general plot is “my kind of book.” But, nah, it meanders and lingers and the parts I daydreamed through weren’t really worth going back to relisten to. Not entirely sure why it didn’t hit my fancy, but it’s lacking in content.

Hope this isn’t the last one

This series started off with a fantastic book in The Short Drop, but has fallen a bit further than that since. This book was predictable and felt very paint but the numbers to me. I just hope the author can find a way to recapture the magic he found with Gibson In the original. That’s why I keep coming back. Also, it doesn’t get much better than JPC as a narrator. He is the lone bright spot for me. His accents are very believable and never feel hacky or corny. He just has a great voice. Overall this is a C+ at best. But of course I’ll be back with high hopes again next time Gibson and Co return.

Enjoying this series!!

See what I did there, Matthew FitzSimmons? Wrote my headline in a tense that assumes more installment(s) to come? :) Hopefully not wishful thinking! I do a lot of walking during these Covid times and listen to books - I have plowed through the Gibson Vaughn series and have enjoyed it immensely. I especially like the witty, sarcastic humor of the characters and often laugh out loud at the dialogue (fun when I'm walking by myself and other people are around).

James Patrick Cronin is fantastic at bringing the characters to life - accents and delivery are awesome.

Getting better

I’m really liking this series. The characters are coming to life.

Cronin is one of the best narrators I listened to. His accents are believable and makes each character distinct.

Great story

Another gripping fast paced story with all the usual suspects in. Great nuggets of humour sprinkled all over to make you chuckle. Highly recommended
