From Thieves' Paradise to Drive Me Crazy to Chasing Destiny (which reached #6 on the New York Times list--his eighth bestseller), Eric Jerome Dickey has captivated audiences with his edgy, steamy books.
Dickey's fans will be delighted by this fast-paced, deadly, and sensual read that gives them the chance to catch up with some of their favorite characters while introducing a great new bad-boy narrator: a hit man who goes by the name of Gideon. He's a man who lives off the grid, drifting along while making love on the run as he works as a hit man--enacting the revenge of the broken-hearted . . . for a price.
With a supporting cast of grifters and killers, broken-hearted squares and streetwalkers, and three very different women who each want to become Gideon's leading lady, this is a world that thrives on the darker passions of revenge and desire.
Get ready for another scorching hot read full of twists and surprises from an author who keeps climbing higher on the bestseller lists with each new book.
After a brutal hit in Tampa on high-profile rapper Big Bad Wolf, contract killer Gideon, the star of this fast-paced thriller from bestseller Dickey, jets to London for his next assignment. On the plane, paranoia brewing just beneath his poker face keeps him wary of two mysterious passengers who could be either harmless squares or hired guns out to avenge Big Bad Wolf's murder. This constant uncertainty over who's in the game and who isn't keeps Gideon-and readers-on edge as Gideon navigates London's underworld and pursues a personal vendetta. Dickey occasionally shifts away from Gideon's point of view to that of another hit man who has just received his next contract: Gideon. The plot is taut, fast and bold-total blockbuster entertainment, replete with an abundance of sex, violence and James Bond touches. A tense cliffhanger caps a wild ride. The next installment is due in August, which for many readers won't be soon enough. (Apr.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.

1 . Lost interest quick!
Posted September 29, 2009 by Krystal , BrooklynI thought that i would have been able to read this book and actually enjoy some entertainment. I only read 3 1/2 chapters and lost interest and couldn't force myself to read anymore. Couldn't tell you if its worth reading because i didn't reach that far. Maybe some day ill give this book a second try since i did spend money and time to purchase it.
