Publisher's Summary

International hit man Gideon never misses his target, but when a job in Detroit goes bad, he should have killed his client - a cold-blooded woman who hired him to kill her husband - when he had the chance. Now the city's mayor and with money and power to spare, this woman will stop at nothing to see that Gideon gets what he deserves.Gideon soon finds himself in the crosshairs of two hired assassins: a seasoned killer known as El Matador and his voluptuous but ruthless wife, who dons Manolo Blahniks for even the dirtiest jobs. But when Gideon proves himself an impossible target, the lady from Detroit sets her sights on those closest to him. On the exotic island of Antigua, Gideon enlists the help of his friend and fellow assassin Hawks to square off against his deadliest adversary yet. Amid palm trees and white sands, sparks and bullets fly as Gideon must outsmart and defeat his pursuers before it's too late. Featuring Dickey's trademark blend of passion and suspense, Dying for Revenge is a pulse-pounding and deliciously sexy thrill-ride through a Caribbean island paradise.

Extremely Disappointing

Sleeping w/ Strangers & Waking w/ Enemies were so great that I was anxious to listen to this 3rd installment. I don't know what Dickey was thinking but my thoughts; this IS atrocious!! Dying for Revenge is NOTHING like the 1st 2.

1stly, there is NOT a line that does NOT get repeated to death. Apparently Dickey doesnt realize what overkill means or less is more. There is a fascination for iPhone (Gideon cant just make a phone call; he needs to keep mentioning his iPhone to make the call), Sex & the City (the female assassins-known as the Assassin w/ Ass; has a ridiculous obsession for Sex in the City & Manolo Blahnik shoes). Her husband (also an assassin- well, lets just say, he was as tired of her as I was. You will hear these things repeated so much that you just know when a subject arises; its going to be related to one of these things.

15+ hours w/O the repetition would cut this down to 7-8 hrs tops! The overall story line drags on endlessly & has no substance. The characters are just as nerve wracking as the story itself. I mean really, imagine if you will, each character repeating the same thing over & over again. The narration feels forced & just over the top.

If you enjoyed SWS & WWE; this will leave you scratching your head or giving up half way through it. I was left extremely disappointed. I look forward to other reviews.

Dying for Revenge

Another great read from one of my favorite authors. I was so pleased that the main character became human and not just a killing sex machine. I enjoyed the way the loose ends were tied up. I have to agree though, the female obsessed with shoes and Sex & the City was a bit much, but overall, I loved it and highly recommend it.
