A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.

A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.

Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something far worse than mere Armageddon.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It’s the thrill of the ride that counts, and Gideon’s Corpse gives the reader a front seat.”

    Albuquerque Journal

  • “Narrator David Collins imbues Gideon with a quiet air of conviction that there must be a way to stop the impending disaster. Musical effects, used sparingly, help increase the suspense. Collins builds on the intensity, particularly in the moments that lead to the final showdown.” 


  • “Once Crews is accused, the action zigzags like an out-of-control rocket toward a double-deceptive conclusion.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Gideon, an engaging fellow from the get-go, lives up to his initial promise, demonstrating an intelligence and resourcefulness that should endear him to adventure fans…The first novel Gideon’s Sword was a sort of shakedown cruise as the authors tried out a new character. If this follow-up is any indication, it should be smooth sailing from here on.”


  • “Like Michael Crichton, Preston and Child weave their stories at a thrilling pace…Preston and Child never fail to entertain. And Gideon’s Corpse is a thriller that ranks high among their many co-authored offerings to date.”


  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Josh Reinhard | 2/16/2014

    " It was ok. Nothing spectacular, but not horrible either. I definitely like the Pendergast series better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Nick | 2/15/2014

    " Meh...I was just really disappointed in this book. I found myself not believing in, or even caring about, any of the characters in the story. Also, the plot was stale, and way too convenient at times for my liking. Oh well, at least I know I still have Agent Pendergast to rely on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Rachel | 2/14/2014

    " I don't know if I can commit to reading more by this duo. It's not quite cheesy enough to be entertaining like Clive Cussler, and it's certainly not good enough like Anne Perry to make me seek it out. MEH. "
