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 long he has been imprisoned. The days turned into weeks; weeks into months, months into…well, you get the picture. But for some reason he is freed and he is quite a mess – emotionally and physically.

Trying to get back on his feet proves difficult as ghosts from his past keep popping up – literally talking to him causing him to appear mentally ill in public. Gibson also learns that his ex-wife and daughter are missing after their home has been burnt due to arson. Arson that the authorities feel he may be responsible for. He seeks revenge and gets involved in scheme not fully knowing who he can trust.

The premise sounds so good. Other reviewers have given this book very high ratings. I just struggled with this book. A man desperate to get back on his own two feet, to make people pay and reclaim his life sounded intriguing. I do believe I would have benefited from reading this series from the beginning as this one did not work very well for me as a stand alone.

I received a copy of this book from Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
