Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

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.)

This book is so intense and well written, I found myself tearing to the store to buy the sequel. Save yourself the time and buy Waking With Enemies, too. You won't be disappointed. I must say, EJD has really stepped up his game.

Man I couldn't put this book down. It was everything you hope for in a EJD book! The suspense and the love scenes are incredible and I couldn't wait until the sequel came out to finish this story. Excellent work! This is a must have for all collectors and even the non.

After reading Sleeping with Strangers (SwS) I needed to get a refill - meaning I'm definitely excited about reading the next episode of Gideon. The book is superb how it allows readers to thrist for the name of the Fox. EJD expressed his talents in this one. SwS was a mystery, love story, drama, informative and definitely spellbinding.

OMG!! This guy has done it again. Not only has he mixed violence and sex, but he did it in my hometown!!! Tampa!!! I met EJD in 2006 I didn't know he was writing SWS then. But now I know why he was late to the book signing of Chasing Destiny. He was hanging out at the Mons Venus...LOL...I don't blame you bro. SWS is what we've come to expect from this guy. A must read if you're a fan. If you're just getting started you need to go back to Thieve's Paradise, let that Drive You(Me) Crazy, then and only then are you worthy to Sleep With Strangers...

I really liked this book. It kept me intrigued and I couldn't put the book down. I just couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen; the book is a mystery that is being unfolded, and I just love the way EJD weaves in characters from previous novels. I would definately recommend if you're an EJD fan and thanks EJD for another great novel.

This book sucks! It's too slow, too wordy & too many unnecessary details. I bought this book along with the sequel & I am pissed because I can't even finish part 1, so I really don't know if I will be able to read part 2. I am so ferious with myself because I threw away my receipts & now I can't get my money back. Shame on you Eric Jerome Dickey for writing such a boring book. If you plan on purchasing this book, please read the first two chapters in the store before buying it.

"Sleeping With Strangers" was the first book I read by Eric Jerome Dickey and it will not be the last. The book was so unbelievably good I had to go back to previous books and read those as well to believe a man could right such a spectacular work. I was trapped within the pages of this book until the end and love the following books as well. All the books deserve a standing ovation!

Excellent series! Each book a page turner! Judging from the last book, it sounds like there may be another installment! I hope so! Can't wait!
