Overview

"International hit man Gideon never misses his target, but when a job in Detroit goes bad, he should have killed his client - a cold-blooded woman who hired him to kill her husband - when he had the chance. Now the city's mayor and with money and power to spare, this woman will stop at nothing to see that Gideon gets what he deserves." "Gideon soon finds himself in the crosshairs of two hired assassins: a seasoned killer known as El Matador and his voluptuous but ruthless wife, who dons Manolo Blahniks for even the dirtiest jobs. But when Gideon proves himself an impossible target, the lady from Detroit sets her sights on those closest to him." On the exotic island of Antigua, Gideon enlists the help of his friend and fellow assassin Hawks to square off against his deadliest adversary yet. Amid palm trees and white sands, sparks and bullets fly as Gideon must outsmart and defeat his pursuers before it's too late.

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.)

The final novel in Dickey's recent trilogy (following Sleeping with Strangers and Waking with Enemies), this installment features contract killer Gideon, who's ready to retire. His employer has other plans, sending a hitman after him, but he takes out the hitman instead.

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.
