Living off the grid, making love on the run, he makes his living as a contract killer by enacting the revenge of the brokenhearted for a price. One woman taught him to kill, another motivates him to succeed in the business of revenge. If he can amass a million dollars, the woman he desires has promised to run away with him. For her sake, Gideon takes a high profile job that earns him dangerous enemies, and hops a plane to London hoping to escape the aftermath. On the plane he meets two mysterious women have they been sent to bring him down? Have his past transgressions caught up with him at last?

Waking with Enemies

Ten time New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey sizzles in this rapid fire sequel to Sleeping with Strangers, which finds international hit man Gideon waking up with his past haunting him and danger knocking at his door.

A heated encounter inside a London hotel room where he was pursued by three very different women leaves Gideon waking up to a world where there’s no one to trust. Someone has taken out a hit on the hit man but who? The clock is ticking as Gideon tries to pin down the man who was sent to kill him a mysterious man with a broken nose who shadows his every move while also finding out who from his past might have ordered the hit. Could it be the man he left alive in Tampa, the woman who taught him to kill, the scorned woman he still desires, or some other unseen enemy? As the hunter becomes the hunted, Gideon will need to find his friends and his enemies to get out of the game alive.

From the back streets of London to Amsterdam s red light district, Waking with Enemies is an international game of cat and mouse, in which Gideon must protect those he loves and face the possibility of his own death.

Dying for Revenge

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. Featuring Dickey s trademark blend of passion and suspense, Dying for Revenge is a pulse pounding and deliciously sexy thrill ride through a Caribbean island paradise.

Resurrecting Midnight

International assassin Gideon spilled blood for the first time when he was seven years old, with a single shot to the head of a man who was attempting to kill the woman Gideon had known as his mother. The victim was none other than his own father, a man of unspeakable evil. This pivotal event shaped Gideon throughout his life, made him who he is, one of the fiercest, most feared hired guns in the world.

And one of the most hunted.

After nearly losing his life in Antigua during a mission that went terribly wrong, Gideon trusts no one. But when a former lover and grifter, Arizona, resurfaces in need of his skills, she reminds him he was indebted to a man who had once saved his life: the son of the legendary con man Scamz. Gideon is forced to take on an assignment which will lead him to Argentina in pursuit of a briefcase containing one part of a larger puzzle. The ‘package’ contains material that another group of assassins the Four Horseme*n of the Apocalypse will kill to obtain and protect. One of the leaders of the Four Horseme*n has a connection to Gideon that neither man is aware of a connection that will be exposed when they meet face to face and gun to gun. Each member of The Four Horseme*n is a world class killer, each with a dark and dangerous past, and nothing will stop that team of renegades from completing their mission.

As Gideon struggles to keep promises and uncover information about his past, he finds himself at the center of the ultimate double cross and he is forced to do what he must to protect himself and those closest to him. Set amidst the exotic and vibrant streets of Miami and Buenos Aires, Resurrecting Midnight is an action filled, pulse pounding thriller from bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey.
