Overview

For most of us, one life is enough. Imagine having three. Nicholas Gambit did. One man, three very different reasons for being.
Almost graduated from University and soon to leave a Kansas City ghetto he can’t wait to get away from, Nicholas is drawn into a conflict he wants no part of. His world crashing down around him, surrounded by violence, he learns he has some very special talents. Even with those talents, he finds he can’t protect everyone and when the nightmare is finally over, he is consumed. He is devoid of purpose, inconsolable, lost.
Upon observing how Nicholas conducts himself, and what he is capable of, agent John Wilkes devises a new purpose for him. He soon invites his protege to enlist in a program few know exists. Too emotionally drained to see that it is a mistake, Nicholas allows himself to be secreted away into a life that he thinks will give his existence meaning and pit him against those who place themselves above the law. Instead, he finds himself at war with his own principles — fearful he will become the enemy he has sworn to fight.
In the course of the transformation from artless college student to inconceivably skilled government operative, Nicholas finds love where it is forbidden, is made into a cold blooded murderer, and ultimately seeks out redemption by allowing another a chance to rediscover her own humanity.

    Exceptional and Unique

    The storyline was quite interesting, the different people and their stories were each intriguing and I looked forward to reading them. Transitions were good and not to frequent between the three people (not perspectives, thank God). Often it would be at a time where things were becoming interesting, but I was just as delighted to move on to a different section as I was to continue the section I had been reading. Very well written, good grammar, and marvelous plot. I absolutely recommend this story, I didn't want to stop reading. The conclusion was very nice and everything concluded well.

    Captivating, intelligent and sexy - a must read!!!!

    In less than 24 hours after I purchased this book, I had read it cover to cover. Suspense, drama and action delicately laced with all forms of human love, made this a book I could not put down. I found this excellent literary exhibit to be captivating, intelligent and sexy to say the least. Mr. Washington's authentic characters, action packed sequences and detailed imagery offer a riveting and entertaining reading experience that I hated to see end. As Nicholas Gambit navigated various intense, unique and emotionally charged situations, I found myself completely drawn into his worlds. I anxiously await the sequel.
