    International hit man Gideon never misses his target, but when a job in Detroit goes bad, he should have killed his client - a cold-blooded woman who hired him to kill her husband - when he had the chance. Now the city's mayor and with money and power to spare, this woman will stop at nothing to see that Gideon gets what he deserves.

    "Extremely Disappointing"
    Overall

    Sleeping w/ Strangers & Waking w/ Enemies were so great that I was anxious to listen to this 3rd installment. I don't know what Dickey was thinking but my thoughts; this IS atrocious!! Dying for Revenge is NOTHING like the 1st 2.

    1stly, there is NOT a line that does NOT get repeated to death. Apparently Dickey doesnt realize what overkill means or less is more. There is a fascination for iPhone (Gideon cant just make a phone call; he needs to keep mentioning his iPhone to make the call), Sex & the City (the female assassins-known as the Assassin w/ Ass; has a ridiculous obsession for Sex in the City & Manolo Blahnik shoes). Her husband (also an assassin- well, lets just say, he was as tired of her as I was. You will hear these things repeated so much that you just know when a subject arises; its going to be related to one of these things.

    15+ hours w/O the repetition would cut this down to 7-8 hrs tops! The overall story line drags on endlessly & has no substance. The characters are just as nerve wracking as the story itself. I mean really, imagine if you will, each character repeating the same thing over & over again. The narration feels forced & just over the top.

    If you enjoyed SWS & WWE; this will leave you scratching your head or giving up half way through it. I was left extremely disappointed. I look forward to other reviews.

    Jackie Blue is a hard-working, ambitious, young black editor. She looks forward to her weekly meetings with the Black Pack, a small group of African-American professionals with ties to the industry. These connections have helped place her on the fast track to a coveted executive editor's position, but she still faces an uphill battle against the predominantly white trust-fund babies. When her boss is suddenly murdered, Jackie finds herself in police custody and facing her greatest challenge ever.

    "Anita Diggs Rocks Hard!"
    Overall

    I've listened to this story 3x's in 1 month; its just that good. Anita Diggs is an incredible writer who enjoys word play. There were several times when I thought I had a character nailed, only to discover just how wrong I was.

    The dialogue, wit and sarcasm relating to each person in the story was just too funny for words. Just imagine talking to one of your friends and what you'd say to them or even how you'd say it. Each conversation just sounded so real!

    I look forward to more books from Anita!!
