Overview

The next installment in the bold and sexy series by the fearless New York Times bestselling author.

Sleeping with Strangers and Waking with Enemies "[left] Dickey fans wanting more"(Ebony). Now, with Dying for Revenge, he returns to that adrenaline- fueled underworld.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

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. (Nov.)

I just love Gideon and this series. You won't be disappointed if you're a fan of this series. This book was action packed and full of twists and turns, and of course EJD'S steamy sex scenes.

Loved it, loved it and loved it !!! Enjoyed the first two books, but felt the sex scenes were overrated ... Made me feel like I was reading a Zane novel instead of EJD. I took a break before reading the 3rd, but when I began to read it, I had a hard time putting it down. Love Gideon working with Konstantin & Hawks ... the perfect team! I just wish Gideon would have been able to get his revenge on Detroit. Anyway, can't wait to begin Resurrecting Midnight ... EJD needs to be working on book #5, lol.

Love the Gideon series, looking forward to the next book to see what happens between Gideon and Midnight, father (maybe) and son two sides of a coin. Gideon needs to open the envelope though to find out who is who.

I have been so addicted to all 3 books. Getting ready to start the fourth. These stories are so amazing and EJD really showed another side I LOVE. I agree, a movie with The Rock as the lead and maybe Zoe Saldana as Hawks. Idk just an idea but a movie would be dominating because the books are raw, real, sexy, exciting, and cleaver.
