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 . . .

It's really good! I started reading and couldn't put it down.

Not their best

I have read all of their work. I bought this without even reading the sample. I will not do that again. Slowest plot development and too much extraneous info.

Good, but...not what I wanted.

I'm an avid fan of Lincoln and Child, and have read every one of their books. So, forgive me for being critical. Ever since Cabinet of Curiosities, the books have become less involved, and seemed to have lost the atmosphere and intrigue they did so well with Pendergast and Constance. Cabinet of Curiosities was the apex. Now it seems like I'm reading made for TV movies, entertaining for sure, but not what I want from these guys who I know can do so much better. If I have to I'll write my own novel, called 'Constance', her past is so haunting and so deep I'm dying to fill in all that space, even if I have to write it. Time to rewind guys, you've built some great characters, and have much more to do with them, you're losing me with the side stories.
