Description
Revenge is a dish best served hot in this exhilarating installment of New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey's bold, sexy, and deadly Gideon series.
 
Gideon, a professional assassin, is convinced that an old score with a former client from Detroit was settled a long time ago. But the lady from Detroit has never forgotten-or forgiven-Gideon, and with a crack team of hit-men, she's not letting him out of her sight. Now, Gideon's on the run again, embarking on a global chase that takes him from London to Nashville, and back to the Caribbean where those on both sides of this battle are dying for revenge.

        The third entry of bestselling Dickey's Gideon trilogy (after Waking with Enemies
        ) offers intrigue, deception, murder and sex in exotic locales with a noir sensibility and keen attention to setting. While on vacation in Antigua, assassin Gideon is under the mistaken belief that an old beef with a client, known as Detroit, is over and done with. That's when he discovers teams of hired assassins are after him, seeking to punish him for bad business and, worse, for threatening Detroit's children. On the run, Gideon flees to the U.K. while secreting the only family he knows, “the kid,” as far from their enemies as possible. As killers pursue Gideon through London, Nashville, Atlanta and countless Caribbean beaches, Dickey's detailed location descriptions give his over-the-top violence and sex a vivid, realistic grounding. Murder, double-dealing, seduction, love and some unforeseen twists fill out the action, which hits only a few potholes. Though it could have been shorter, this is another highly entertaining page-turner from the veteran author.

        The thirdin Dickeysexciting Gideon trilogy (Sleeping with Strangers andWaking with Enemies, 2007)continues the homicidal adventures of Gideon, a professional hit man who got his name from the hollowed-out Bible a preacher was holding when he killed him. Gideon is an artist at his trade, never killing the same way twice. But all that seems to be over. Gideon has deluded himself into thinking that he has retired and foundpeace and that he can kick backin the Cayman Islands and enjoy the company ofnot one but two women. Then reality intrudes, andastop in a public restroom turns into a bloodbath. As tired as he is of the killing game, it looks as though Gideons quest for anormal lifehasnt yet succeeded. With action scenes that take your breath away, characters to hate instead of cheer for, devilish details, and a speed-of-light plot, Dickey provesonce againthat he is a master of the genre. Librarians will wantall three books in the trilogy.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
