As a child, Gideon Crew witnessed the brutal murder of his father; a scientist wrongly framed by the US government, and shot down by police during a dramatic hostage crisis. More than twenty years after his father's assassination, Gideon finally gets his revenge and fulfils the promise that he made to his mother on her death bed: to bring down the powerful and corrupt man who destroyed his father. The Crew family name is finally cleared, but Gideon's story is only just beginning. His daredevil act of revenge has not gone unnoticed and he is soon approached by a shadowy figure who offers him the chance of a lifetime. The only catch? He might not have that much lifetime left and the clock is now ticking...

Gideon Crew, the hero of Preston and Child’s new novel, has a complicated backstory. As a boy, he watched as his father, who had taken a man hostage, was shot down by a sniper. Less than a decade later, he learned from his mother that his father had been used by the U.S. government as a scapegoat for a failed intelligence project. After dispatching the man responsible for his father’s murder, Gideon is offered a job with a private contractor that does hush-hush work for the government. Gideon’s mission: to intercept a Chinese scientist and relieve him of the plans for a top-secret weapon. The mission doesn’t go as drawn, however, and Gideon is left with a mysterious string of numbers. Now, working mostly alone, he must determine what the numbers mean. This novel (which is apparently the first installment in a new series) isn’t as elegantly written or constructed as the authors’ popular Special Agent Pendergast novels, but it does—once you get past the backstory—hold the reader’s interest, and Gideon is undeniably a big-shouldered character, capable of supporting a series. --David Pitt
