Contract killer Gideon becomes the hunted in this “high-octane”* thriller from New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey.
A heated encounter in a London hotel room leaves international hit man Gideon waking up to a world where no one can be trusted. Because this time, someone's taken out a hit on him—and finding out who did it has him rethinking a dangerous past.
Is it the man he left alive in Tampa, the cold beauty who taught him how to kill, the scorned woman he still desires, or an unknown enemy? One thing is for sure, Gideon will need his friends—and his enemies—to get out of this game alive.
