A professional job turns personal for jet-setting contract killer Gideon in this sexy, thrilling page-turner by New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey.
As a hit man from the time he was very young, money, women, and danger have always ruled Gideon’s life; but for the first time, the job is taking its toll. Neither Gideon nor the city of Buenos Aires has recovered from the mayhem caused during Gideon’s last job. But before the dust has settled and the bodies have been buried, Gideon calls in backup—including the lovely Hawks, with whom Gideon has heated memories—to launch his biggest act of revenge yet . . . one he believes will destroy his adversary, Midnight, once and for all.
Yet Midnight and his second-in-command, the beautiful and ruthless Señorita Raven, are launching their own revenge, assembling a team of mercenaries the likes of which the world has never seen… and Gideon isn’t their only target. Gideon will need all of his skills if he is to save not only his team, but his family as well.
Dickey’s new novel stirs up a whirlwind of sex and violence that spans the globe . . . and leaves no moral boundary uncrossed.
In this installment of the Gideon saga, we find him in Argentina face to face with someone who he thought was dead: yet here he is and begins another story that pulls you in from the first page until the final period.
There is a lot going on in this book and at times I felt there was too much and that is wasn’t need to move the story forward. I was lost at times with the many side characters, some of the expressions in Spanish and the huge thing was the repetitiveness that caused the story to become confusing. Way too descriptive at times in the scenes also with people and places.
With that said Gideon the character brings it and it is an action packed story we who follow EDJ and his work have come to know and love. Lots of action and characters I suspect you will not be inviting over to dinner.
Even with the “flaws” I look forward to the next chapter in Gideon’s life because there is much more that we don’t know and after all this is Eric Jerome Dickey you know he has more in store for the man and his mystery. Plus if you have read his work you know what you’re getting. Don’t miss out on any of his work and I highly recommend Resurrecting Midnight. Loved it. But just so you know Finding Gideon can be read as a stand alone but why would you do that. Read them both…no read them all !
