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, Gideon’s mother begged him to avenge that death.

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 for just such a renegade.

For Gideon, this operation may be only the beginning.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Tamara Blair | 2/16/2014

    " If this had been the first Preston/Childs book I had read I would have never picked up another one. I glad it was not- I love their Pendergast books! But I will not be following this new series; Gideon is an uninteresting character and the authors seem to have gone to a Dan Brown seminar: short chapters, little exposition. Really dull. "

    " My first book by these authors...a wild ride. Looking forward to the next "Gideon's Crew" novel. Will also be looking at other books by them. "

    " This is more like a 2.5 stars. I'm still trying to find a book by this pair that I can rave about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Huluriasquias | 2/2/2014

    " Juvenile but not as bad as I expected. The situations are cartoon-ish, the characters come and go and are not more than a name and a gender, but somewhere in the middle the story started to build up nicely and some of the Preston-Child charm started to kick in. The description of Hart Island is vintage P-C. "
