Summary:

Introducing Gideon Crew: trickster, prodigy, master thief

At twelve, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down.

At twenty-four, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him.

Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.

But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills. Someone who has need of just such a renegade.

For Gideon, this operation may be only the beginning . . .

    I'm a huge fan of Preston & Child but this story was lacking. They filled many of the pages with excruciating detail and drivel that added nothing to the flow of the story. It was short periods of interesting plot and dialogue scenes linked by long sections of uninteresting and irrelevant details. By the end of the book I was just getting impatient for the generally anti-climactic ending

    Entertaining. good story line keeps the listener involved.

    I liked the new character, Gideon Crew and look forward to the next novel.

    I'm a huge fan of Child and Preston and have read all of the Agent Pendergast series. This one is just okay. All of the excitement is there, though it's a little "campy" -- and I didn't like the reader's inflection with the story.
