Editorial Reviews

Essence
A fast-paced cliff-hanger.
Booklist
it's also sure to create new fans.
Ebony
Riveting...an action-packed classic noir thriller.
Publishers Weekly

Picking up where Sleeping with Strangersleft off, Dickey's latest novel finds hit man Gideon in London, where another assassin, a mysterious man with a broken nose, is hot on his trail. Gideon's most recent target was a rapper, Big Bad Wolf. The rival rapper who hired Gideon for the hit, Sledge, was recently assassinated, and Gideon assumes he is the latest target. The nonstop narrative follows Gideon as he evades the assassin, searches for the truth about his hooker mother, continues his involvement with tough girl Arizona (who wants Gideon to kill her older sister), tries to figure out who ordered the hit on him and finds time for some explicitly chronicled fantasy sex. Though the revelations about who's behind what are a stretch and the ending is a little too much on the rosy side, there's a lot of fun to be had in watching Gideon work his brutal trade, and the high-octane narrative will have readers burning through page after page. (Aug.)

Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information
Library Journal

Waking with Enemiesis called a sequel, but it is more of a smooth, preplanned continuation of the plot and characters in Sleeping with Strangersas hired assassin Gideon wakes to more of the same: hunt and be hunted by rival killers and mysterious women. This new tale is a bit more strategic but is just as raunchy and violent, featuring classic Dickey scenes of sex and mayhem. A necessary follow-up for those who were enthralled by Gideon and crew in Sleeping.Reader Dion Graham again captures the gritty tone of the novel. For adult audiences only.
—Joyce Kessel

Kirkus Reviews
Multifaceted assassin Gideon returns to tangle with his enemies and lovers in Dickey's highly sexed latest (Sleeping with Strangers, 2007, etc.). There are worse things for a guy than being stuck in a fancy London hotel room with two beautiful women he hardly knows, but in spite of his Bond-like way with the ladies, contract killer Gideon has much on his mind. Everyone, it seems, wants to bed him or kill him. Sometimes both. Pursued by a broken-nosed rival hitman (Bruno) who followed him from America, he is also preoccupied with Arizona, the gorgeous con artist who broke his heart and might now be after his neck. She offers her help, but can he trust her? And then there is unfinished business with his mother Thelma, the prostitute living in England whose questionable parenting techniques he blames for turning him into the man he is today. Far friendlier is Lola Mack, the curvy wannabe actress he meets on his flight over, who turns to Gideon after her London-dwelling boyfriend spurns her, and the elegant Mrs. Jones, a mystery woman on the run from a bad marriage and family tragedy. Those two join him in his room and the trio exhaustively explores erotic possibilities, with Gideon trying to keep his job secret from his new playmates. Needless to say, it gets more complicated and bloodier, with our hero trying to save his skin, honor his obligations and protect those who suddenly seem to matter most to him. He is eventually forced into a showdown with Bruno that puts him on the trail of the party who placed the hit on him. With stops in Amsterdam and Detroit, Dickey's latest meanders a bit in the earlier scenes, but it gains momentum as plot points introduced in the previous book cometogether. Nearly as violent as it is explicit-a pulpy thriller boasting a free-love message.

Meet the Author

Eric Jerome Dickey

ERIC JEROME DICKEY is the New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty novels, as well as a six-issue miniseries of graphic novels featuring Storm (X-Men) and the Black Panther. Originally from Memphis, Dickey now lives on the road and rests in whatever hotel will have him.

Biography

Eric Jerome Dickey was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and attended the University of Memphis (the former Memphis State), where he pledged Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and earned a degree in computer system technology. In 1983, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in engineering.

After landing a job in the aerospace industry working as a software developer, Dickey's artistic talents surfaced, inspiring him to become an actor and a stand-up comedian. He soon began working the local and national comedy circuit. In the early 1990s the aerospace industry took a downward turn and Dickey found himself "downsized," but took this as an opportunity to embark on a writing career.

Having written several scripts for his personal comedy act, Dickey started writing poetry and short stories. He joined the IBWA (International Black Writers and Artists), participated in their development workshops, and became a recipient of the IBWA SEED Scholarship to attend UCLA's creative writing classes. In 1994 his first published short story, "Thirteen," appeared in the IBWA's River Crossing, Voices of the Diaspora: An Anthology of the International Black Experience. A second short story, "Days Gone By," was published in the magazine A Place to Enter.

With those successes behind him, Dickey decided to fine-tune some of his earlier work and developed a screenplay called Cappuccino. Cappuccino was directed and produced by Craig Ross Jr. and appeared in coffeehouses around the Los Angeles area. In February 1998, Cappuccino made its local debut during the Pan African Film Festival at the Magic Johnson Theater in Los Angeles and is currently on the film festival circuit.

Dickey's book-signing tours for Sister, Sister, Friends and Lovers, and Milk in My Coffee took him coast to coast and helped propel these novels to No. 1 on the Blackboard bestsellers List. His books have been featured in many publications, including Essence magazine and USA Today, and have appeared on the bestseller lists of The Los Angeles Times, Blackboard, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. Dickey has appeared as a guest on many television shows, including BET's Our Voices and CNN's Sunday Morning Live.

    O.M.G..Gideon!!!

    I remember purchasing this book at an airport back in 2009. I don't ever recall reading a book that where the story and its character had me soooo lured in...I'll admit I began to develop a crush on Gideon (is that normal?!? lol) The passion, the pleasure, the pain of Gideon(along with the violence)- it all draws you in wanting more as you leave one chapter to go into next. Gideon has swagg, he's sexy, handsome, and charismastic. He also happens to be one of the deadliest men in the world. He's heroic, yet tragic in dealing with his own personal demons.
    All I can say is you will NOT be disappointed with this book of the trilogy. It takes you on a thrill ride into the violent life and sexual escapades of a world-class assassin. Jerome-OUTSTANDING job!!!!

    Excellent Read

    This book is so good. I couldnt put it down. But make sure you read 'Sleeping With Strangers' first, which was great too, 'Waking With Enemies' is the continuation of SWS. Can't wait for 'Dying For Revenge' to come out.

    After reading the first book in the series, this one seemed to follow the same format. It was a good read and it is refreshing to know that the main character is vulnerable like everyone else.

    The sandwich with your bag of chips!

    I wrote an excellent review to Eric Jerome Dickey's "Sleeping with Strangers" and am telling the reader of this review will find no different of the review for this book. The series of these books are self-explanatory. There is no words extravagant enough to recollect my first reaction to finishing this book. I can best describe myself as jumping around rooting for characters as if I was watching a television show. The books is an anchor that keeps you stationary until you finish, you will be dying to get to the next book in the series.

    Action Packed, Yet Yerning to be Loved

    When I picked up this book I was immedately captivated by the young boy Gideon. Gideon has a dark past, he practically lives on the run, but still finds time to cater to the sensual and sensitive side of no just one, but two women he meets on the plane. Like me you will not put this book down. I laughed, cried, was sitting on the edge of my seat as Gideaon's life unraveled before him.

    A real page turner.

    I really enjoyed this book. I finished reading the book in about a day or two. From cover to cover this book had me hooked. There were so many cliffhangers in this book and you have to pay attention to what is going on so you can follow along. Eric Jerome Dickey has done it once again and I just love the way he wrote this book. Definitely recommend this book to all my friends.

    Excellent sequel

    We all know how part 2's (3..4) can be disappointing. BUT NOT IN THIS CASE! This book was an excellent follow up to the Sleeping With Strangers. It's suspenseful, sultry, & really hard to put down. I read this in two days (would've been one but had to work). Unexpected ending :)
