Gideon's Sword

Gideon's Sword - Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child At twelve years of age Gideon Crew saw his father shot as a traitor. His mother’s deathbed revelation that his father was framed renews Gideon’s lust for revenge. Super-smart, super-fit and super-angry he concocts an elaborate plot to avenge his father. Unbeknownst to Gideon, someone else is watching and feels they may have use for Gideon’s unique skill set.

I am a huge fan of the Aloysius Pendergast series. I was not expecting a Perndergast book, and Gideon Crew is as opposite from Aloysius as two characters can get, I did enjoy this book. It is jam packed full of action, intrigue, likeable characters, loveable characters and some deliciously shady ones too. … exactly what a reader wants in the mystery thriller genre.

Not wanting the necessity of a spoiler alert, let me just say that a few unanswered questions at the end of this book indicate that there will be, at the very least, a second installment.
