What I Read #65
Gideon's Sword by Preston & Child: This novel by #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling authors, Preston and Child introduces Gideon Crew. Gideon Crew is a renegade of sorts, dedicating himself to the revenge of the wrongful death of his father.
He is being challenged by unseen foes, powerful foes. He has also impressed people whom he just might need on his side.
I was impressed by the author's handle on crime fighting, and how to put together a mind boggling
mystery full of action and suspense. This is a "thinking reader's" novel. After several novels of "fluff and fun," I found this one not only a challenge, but a thrilling read from cover to cover. I look forward to the next Gideon Crew novel. The authors dangled the carrot just enough!!
