One woman taught him to kill, another motivates him to succeed in the business of revenge. If he can amass a million dollars, the woman he desires has promised to run away with him.
For her sake, Gideon takes a high-profile job that earns him dangerous enemies, and hops a plane to London hoping to escape the aftermath. On the plane he meets two mysterious women - have they been sent to bring him down? Have his past transgressions caught up with him at last? Or will one of these strangers help him choose a life of love over a life of violence?
In this underworld of grifters and killers, brokenhearted squares and streetwalkers, loyal fans will spot some familiar faces from Dickey's previous books. A thrilling ride through extremes of love and danger, Sleeping with Strangers thrives on the darker passions of revenge and desire.

Since EJD gave some love to Katy, Texas in this book, it seems only right that I send some back! The author mentioned streets in my neighborhood with such familiarity that I expected see Bruno (the hit man) at the gas station one day. This was a terrifying game of cat and mouse that had me on the edge of my seat every chapter. I was thrilled to see that the story was continued in a second book because I couldn't get enough of these characters. The narrator made the story even better. Bravo!
This was my first audible and i couldn't have picked a more perfect Author! Ive read several other EJD works, but to listen to Sleeping With Strangers was an absolute treat. My new job doesn't allow me the time to steal away and read, so i threw on the earphones at work, and found myself staring at the computer, taking in every word of the awsome narrator! A must read/listen. I cant wait to finish the trilogy. Godfather... Watch out! lol
I love mysteries, action, thrillers, supernatural.... in general I just LOVE a great story!!
I like the character development. The author takes his time creating the backdrop of the characters which underscored their actions through out the story. I did not like the general pace. I felt some areas were drawn on too long, and some elements rushed. Also, the story was somewhat predictable. I was also upset about the ending and have not rushed to listen to Waking with Enemies, which is the sequel.
It was enjoyable, but..... I it could have been better. Yes, this is a fiction, but it seemed unrealistic at times and overly sensationalized.
Dion Graham is the reason why I did not stop the story.
It helped me to pass time; it wasn't a book that I sought out to listen to quickly. I had to take breaks from it.
Addicted to Audible!
It was good. It started off a little slow for me.
I would like to have had more information on Gideon's past earlier in the book.
Gideon of course. He's complicated.
No extreme reaction. The writer leaves you wanting to know more about Gideon. I wondered if he would ever really have a "happy ending".
Just purchased Waking with Enemies.
This was my first listen by Mr. Dickey however it certainly won't be my last. I loved the characters Lola!! Dion Graham did an absolutely amazing job changing his voice throughout the story!!!! This book had on the edge of your seat nail bitting drama!! Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
I am very pleased with this series 4 books as of now. Mr. Dickey's writing is not in question, he takes you on an adventure. I am tooo thrilled with our narrator Dion Graham, he is worth following in everything he does.
This is a series that follows Gideon a contract killer. To call him a "hit man" would be an insult. This audible takes you to places you haven't been in enough detail that if you ever go to any of these location you will remember details from this book.
Not sure if there are good guys and bad guys but I was interested in all the characters. There are enough hot and steamy parts to interest men and women. You will laugh and you will stay glued to your headsets.
Held my attention from the beginning. The characters are strong, bold and unique!!
Gideon of course, followed closely by Lola. Gideon is consistantly in control, in charge and confident with himself and the situation.
Lola. I laughed outload several times by her reponses and actions!
When I heard what his mother had done to him.
1st audiobook I listened to. Got me hooked.
The hitman does work in ALL fields.
3D format, like a blu-ray would do for a movie.
Oh yes. I lauged, jumped, twicted and everything else you do in a good action movie.
Like a book being formatted to a movie, I decied to try an audiobook with one of my favorite books. I fell in love. I still like to read but if the book is that bood I gotta get the audiobook for the realism like a movie does.
