    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, 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.

    James says: "How much disbelief are we expected to suspend?"
    "Disappointing"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't write reviews. This is not a review, more like a warning. Usually like P&C books. This one was horribly written. Paper thin plot apparently stretched out to fill a page count. Too bad too, potentially interesting character left undeveloped and wasted in a simple, straight-line plot. Didn't help that the narrator attributed Gideon with a whiney, unheroic voice.
