Gideon's Corpse

By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child (Audiobook, 2012)
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 worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon.

  • GIDEON'S CORPSE by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

  • "A rollicking tour-de-force. The eponymous Gideon Crew would be equally comfortable smack in a Ludlum tempest or striding onto the set of the Ocean's Eleven franchise. Preston and Child have crafted an electrifying, riveting thriller on which I could continue to heap praise, but instead I will just offer this: Read the book! And we can all look forward to the next appearance of Mr. Gideon Crew in the not-so-distant future."   (David Baldacci on Gideon's Sword).

  • "Fast-paced and action-packed, Gideon's Sword is a clever, high velocity read." (Kathy Reichs).

  • "When you read Preston and Child you know you're in for a thrill ride and that's exactly what Gideon's Sword delivers. They are the antidote for boredom. Hold on tight and let her rip; this ride is worth every penny." (Ted Dekker).

  • This is no dream; it's the authors' best book in years. Pendergast has to rein in his feelings to pay attention to the details, and it's fun to see the role reversal between him and the usually emotional D'Agosta. Not to be missed by either newcomers or die-hard fans. (Library Journal (starred review)).

  • 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)).
