Gideon soon finds himself in the crosshairs of two hired assassins: a seasoned killer known as El Matador and his voluptuous but ruthless wife, who dons Manolo Blahniks for even the dirtiest jobs. But when Gideon proves himself an impossible target, the lady from Detroit sets her sights on those closest to him.
On the exotic island of Antigua, Gideon enlists the help of his friend and fellow assassin Hawks to square off against his deadliest adversary yet. Amid palm trees and white sands, sparks and bullets fly as Gideon must outsmart and defeat his pursuers before it's too late.
Featuring Dickey's trademark blend of passion and suspense, Dying for Revenge is a pulse-pounding and deliciously sexy thrill-ride through a Caribbean island paradise.

Another great read from one of my favorite authors. I was so pleased that the main character became human and not just a killing sex machine. I enjoyed the way the loose ends were tied up. I have to agree though, the female obsessed with shoes and Sex & the City was a bit much, but overall, I loved it and highly recommend it.
I read this book without reading the first two of this series and I think this was a great book. Gideon is a phenomenal character. Dickey is truly talented.
I just love Gideon. This series just keeps getting better and better! Detroit was an idiot that just couldn't leave well enough alone. The ASSASSIN that loved shoes was a bit over the top at times. However she still added some entertainment to the novel. All in all great book!
Enjoying every listen.
I've listened to the other books in this series in order and I enjoyed continuing this story line.
Gideon, he is complex, driven and he has a goal.
I have listened to Dion Graham, he's excellent. I like his voice. Can't remember if I've listened to Susan Ericksen before, but she is not bad at all.
More than likely the book title Dying for Revenge and Getting it.
I couldn't get enough. What a powerful book to listen to. Dion and Susan did a great job with the narration!
First, I love the character of Gideon. He is truly one cool and very sexy man! Dion Graham has the perfect voice for narrating this book and character. I forgot how entertaining audio books are until I put my earbuds in and was immediately immersed in the smooth and sexy narration by Mr. Graham and was super engrossed in the suspenseful story and its characters. The only times I cringed during the story was when the narration was handed off to Susan Ericksen. Her voice was like that of fingers on a chalkboard and her delivery was over the top and exasperating. If it wasn't because I needed to hear those chapters for the sake of the story, I would have completely passed thru them. In the future, I will definitely think twice before listening to any book she narrates. It had better have a damn good plot and storyline.
This 3rd installment is longer then the others. I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much if I were reading the book. This has been the only one out of the four books that has an additional narrator. I found some of the other reviews very helpful. To the point that I skipped to the 4th installment then came back to this one. I think too much time was spent on our other characters. The female narrator projected her crazy character well but I did have to adjust my volume almost every time she came on.
Gideon is in rare form and more fierce in this part. It's a must have but I won't listen to it again.
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.
