A professional job turns personal for jet-setting contract killer Gideon in this sexy, thrilling page-turner by New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey.

But before the dust has settled and the bodies have been buried, Gideon calls in backup—including the lovely Hawks, with whom Gideon has heated memories—to launch his biggest act of revenge yet . . . one he believes will destroy his adversary, Midnight, once and for all.
Yet Midnight and his second-in-command, the beautiful and ruthless Señorita Raven, are launching their own revenge, assembling a team of mercenaries the likes of which the world has never seen… and Gideon isn’t their only target.

Advance Galley Reviews
I received an advance reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review via first to read. It was definitely intense reading. These assassins were by far the most brutal killers I have ever read about! Having not read the first in the series it was hard to follow at first but as I figured out what was happening it bevasme better to read, however I found it worth only 3 stars as it jumps around quite a bit.
Having never read anything by this author before, I did not know that I was starting a book that was a continuation of a series following the character Gideon. This made it very hard for me to get into the book at the beginning because I had no previous connection to the characters and the author did not give any background or recap of previous events that could help me out. I was also frustrated at how long I spent reading from Medianoche's perspective in the beginning when I was waiting to find out more about Gideon. However, I persisted in reading though more pages and when I did get to Gideon again, the story began to click into place for me. I loved the characters of Gideon and his team and enjoyed following his adventures for the rest of the book. I enjoyed it enough that I now want to go back and read the series from the beginning so that I can fully appreciate the significance of some of the revelations in this book!
I loved this book. I have read all the previous Gideon books and this was amazing. The description of the locations, playing catch up with previous characters, the history and his mom; it all left me wanting more. I loved the back story on The Beast and Midnight. I am happy Eric Jerome Dickey left a door open for more books. I have been reading him since my senior year in high school and he has never disappointed. Thank you for bringing back this loved and revered character back. It was like a new introduction to an old lover. I really appreciated the grittiness, the grittiness and the familiarity of these characters and locations.
