Publisher's Summary

The twenty-first novel from New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey, a steamy thriller set in tropical Barbados.

She is a woman of a thousand faces, an assassin who could be anyone, anywhere.

The Trinidad contract was supposed to be simple: To make a living man become a dead man. When the job goes bad under the watchful eye of a bank security camera, there is nowhere for agent MX-401, known as Reaper, to hide from the fearsome local warlords, the Laventille Killers.

Her employers, the Barbarians, send her to Barbados, the next island over, barely two hundred miles away, with the LK's in hot pursuit of the woman who took many of their own. With the scant protection of a dank safe house, no passport, and no access to funds, an island paradise becomes her prison.

While she trawls for low-profile assignments to keep her skills sharp and a few dollars in her pocket, Reaper discovers that family ties run deep, on both sides of the fight. Will the woman everyone wants, who has lived countless lives in the service of others, finally discover who she really is?

In A Wanted Woman, New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey delivers an adrenaline-pumping rush of a listen.

The Female Gideon!

I thought that this was a great listen! I loved Reaper. I really enjoyed this book sense I had been craving more of Gideon. No he didn't make any special appearance in this book. However Reaper really put me in the mind of him. Reaper was a bad Chic!! I really hope there will be a part 2 to this book I want to know who the heck is behind that "Red Door"! I also want to see Reaper and her sister find their dad. Mr. Dickey could you be nice and allow Gideon to join forces with the female assassin????

Gideon please come back!!!!

Would you try another book from Eric Jerome Dickey and/or Zoë Bell and Dominic Hoffman ?

No. I mean Iam a longtime fan of EJD, but this is not his best work. And the narrators (especially Zoe Bell) just killed the book for me.

Would you recommend A Wanted Woman to your friends? Why or why not?

No No No. Its not well written. Seems like an unfinished or rushed project. Now his other book about an assassin was just incredibly good. I mean all 3 were. But this is really mediocre.

What aspect of Zoë Bell and Dominic Hoffman ’s performance would you have changed?

Everthing about Zoe's. She couldn't change her voice much so it was hard to know who was talking. Dominic was not bad.

Was A Wanted Woman worth the listening time?

No.

Any additional comments?

I wasted a credit! Im sorry to say it but its the truth.

Love this book

The story line was well developed, and the narrator was good, however I am an island girl and so I cringed at the pronunciation of some island words and slang phrases. But all in all this was a really good read and I can not wait for the next book.

Another EJD Great One

Definitely a page turner! I haven't read a EJD book in about 8 year (smh at parenthood lol), so this was a great read. A must read! Reaper is the badass that every woman would secretly want to be. There were a few jaw droppers. This was my first time also purchasing an audio book, and the reader Zoe Bell really made the character come to life.

Mr Dickey hits it out of the park again!

I drive trucks on a 600-mile turn around every night Monday through Friday and nothing makes the night go better than listening to a Jerome Dickey book and once again I'm thoroughly satisfied could not stop listening even when I got home!

This would make a Great movie!

I haven't read an Eric Jerome Dickey book in years. This was a great break from the romance novels. I hope he writes a sequel.

WOW! A black woman in white skin! For real!

What did you love best about A Wanted Woman?

Only from EJD could you get a black woman in white skin that makes Hannibal Lector look like a school teacher.

Who was your favorite character and why?

REAPER

Have you listened to any of Zoë Bell and Dominic Hoffman ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no. they were the only let down in the book a fantastic story but I wish the guy who read the gideon series was the reader. Overall they were good but not great. however, the story more than made up for it.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Goldie Locks Reaper - that's enough!

Any additional comments?

A great pacifier until Gideon returns. Would love to see a part 2.

FarFetched, Dull and Boring

What disappointed you about A Wanted Woman?

The story's not believable, reads like a 9th grade English assignment.

What could Eric Jerome Dickey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not write it.

What didn’t you like about Zoë Bell and Dominic Hoffman ’s performance?

Both of them were monotoned. Not at any point during the entire read did her voice parallel what was occuring during the story. Trinis and Bajans with British accents? Murder, sex, deceit, passion,corruption,desire, greed.. all in the same unemotional, bland and detached vocal pitch.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.. nothing

Any additional comments?

It's pronounced fete' not fate and last I checked it was still a condom and not "condum" Looking up Trinidad and Barbados on Wiki doesn't mean sit and write a book trying to convince us that you were there. The Caribbean has tastes, sights, smells that should enlight our senses.. EJD failed to achieve this on all levels. The story was medicore at best and the narration even worst.

Wow... another flop....

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I am very disappointed where EJD is going with his books lately! I am a huge fan of his, but his last two books, "Decadence" and now "A Wanted Woman" makes me nervous about using my credits or buying another book by EJD! In this book, the Narrator, Zoe Bell voice is monotone and B-O-Y was I having a hard time listening to her voice! Since the narrator needed to become the voice of "Agent MX-401", I am not going to avoid other books she may have here that she narrated. It could be the character that she is playing? The story is VERY poor! It sounds like EJD did not write this, but a grade-school student did. Sorry, I must give this book one star. One minute she is talking as though she is in grade school and the next minute she is killing someone... At times I had to rewind to see "where did that come from....???"EJD, PLEASE bring back the Gideon Series!

great story

I was confused by the narrator changing and the Caribbean accents were TERRIBLE but I love EJD so the bad accents are forgiven.
