Gideon's Sword

By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child (Electronic Book, 2011)
GIDEON'S SWORD
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, she begged her son to avenge him.

Now, 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 of just such a renegade.

For Gideon, this operation may be only the beginning . . .

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. Preston's acclaimed nonfiction book, The Monster of Florence, is being made into a movie starring George Clooney. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.
  • They have grown steadily darker and more elegantly written...Together they reach an entirely different level, achieving a stylistic grace and thematic resonance neither has so far matched alone. This may be the best of the Pendergast novels. (-Booklist (starred review)).

  • Preston and Child up the emotional ante considerably...brilliant and eccentric...one of the best in the series. Once again, the bestselling authors show they have few peers at creating taut scenes of suspense. (-Publishers Weekly (starred review)).

  • "Another guaranteed hit that is highly recommended for all libraries." (Library Journal on CEMETERY DANCE).

  • "[A] suspenseful tale of urban terror...this taut page-turner can only add to the authors' growing fan base." (Publishers Weekly on CEMETERY DANCE).

  • Preston and Child's rousing mash-up of high-tech thrills and occult esoterica is aided by Pendergast's droll, retro charm. (Entertainment Weekly on THE WHEEL OF DARKNESS).
