Finding Gideon by Eric Jerome Dickey

As a hit man from the time he was very young, money, women, and danger have always ruled Gideon’s life; but for the first time, it’s taking its toll. Neither Gideon nor the city of Buenos Aires has recovered from the mayhem caused during Gideon’s last job. 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 taking down Midnight’s team isn’t so clear cut thanks to two dangerous women: the alluring—and married—Caprica Ortiz, keeper of many secrets, and the ruthless and power-seeking Senorita Raven, Midnight’s second in command. Is it possible that Midnight’s downfall will come from the inside, or will Gideon finally meet his match?

Dickey’s new novel stirs up a whirlwind of sex and violence that spans the globe . . . and leaves no moral boundary uncrossed.
