5.0 out of 5 stars Boom, boom, POW!!! 31 Aug 2009
By Jason Frost - Published on
Wow. And that my friends, is probably the understatement of the year. This is easily the best and purest action packed book in this insane series. The naming of this book is pure genius, almost like a "hidden in plain sight" type of thing. Like most of EJD's books this one starts out with a bang. Actually more like an explosion, and that carnage of metal and flesh sets the tone for the rest of this book. Gideon is back and he has the devil on his tail and the devil's wife in his heart.

Guys, when I say this book is pure action I really do mean it. I hate to make the comparison but, a day in the life of Gideon makes a day in the life of James Bond seem like a day in the life of K-Fed! Eric pens a story so polished, so refined that it's impossible not to get drawn in. Gideon is the main course, but the main course in and of itself is nothing. You need side dishes. Side dishes that bring OUT the main course, and make this meal perfect enough to be your last meal. The "side dishes" in this book/series would be Scamz, Arizona, Hawks, Konstantin, Catherine, and my favorite Alvin White. They are to Gideon what hot sauce is to fried gizzards.

One thing that I also like about EJD's writing is that he formulates the enemies as well as the main characters. They aren't one-dimensional nobodies. No, no, no, no, no. They are a mattress of unclean, shameless, resolute violence wrapped in sheet of unapologetic sexuality. In this book we follow Gideon as he dispenses his very bloody, very painful version of Judge Hatchett. Unfortunately, over the years he's made a lot of very powerful enemies and they are chasing him; bent on giving him back some of that blood and pain. However, Gideon is harder to kill than a vampire on "E" but the chase is oh so satisfying! Intertwined between the flying body parts, the insatiable hatred, and the unmistakable "sizzle between the sheets" that Eric is known for, is a story about WHO Gideon is. That's a question that he has, in some shape or form, been chasing since the age of 7 when he was forced to become a man.

I said earlier that this is the best book in the series, and it is. Eric has a literary icon in the making with Gideon. I'm not being flippant when I say this, but the last time a character had this effect on me and the people around him was Roland of Gilead. This series is THAT good. Read the first three books so you can experience what we already know, and make these people a part of your literary life as I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!! Gideon Soooo ROCK!!!!!!! 26 Aug 2009
By Nix - Published on
OMG!!! I love Gideon! Is it okay for me to love a fictional character? From reading Sleeping with Stranger & Waking with Enemies, I knew that that Gideon was off the chain and that Dickey's writing had gone to another level.

Originally, he explored the con man world with Thieves Paradise, but with the Gideon chronicles, he has taken his action writing to almost a movie level. As you read about the car chases, shoot outs and fights, you feel like you are there. He takes you places in Argentina that the average person would never see, but you feel like you've seen it all. I'm still trying to figure out why none of his books haven't become movies!

Resurrecting Midnight is a great book. Make you that you read Sleeping with Strangers, Waking with Enemies and Revenge before Dying before you read this one, but all four books will keep you on the edge of your seat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I please have Gideon? 28 Aug 2009
By Gideon's Lover - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
OMG!!!! I don't even know where to begin. Gideon is the new James Bond/Jason Bourne with a whole hella LOT more sex appeal. I agree with the previous poster. I am in love with Gideon. I just want to bring him home and rescue him from all the violence, lies, destruction and cheats he has in his life. EJD has elevated his writing to a level that leaves me spellbound. I also agree that this series needs to be a movie. I hope he's getting some offers....EJD send the book to NEways needless to say Gideon is back in all his sexy hitman glory and that wench Arizona is back too. I hope he gets over his infatuation with her.....I agree with Hawks..."she's just a woman." I'm glad to see the boxer and Constantine from D4R back, but I'd really like to have a Lola/Miss Jones reunion:-).
Please run don't walk to get this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Leave Audiences Stunned 9 Nov 2009
By Bookreporter - Published on
It is difficult to categorize Eric Jerome Dickey's work. His early titles dealt almost exclusively with the often tangled dance of relationships between men and women, yet they could not be classified as romance or erotic works despite containing elements of both. And while his early and mid-period novels occasionally strayed into the areas of mystery or crime fiction, they retained a strong pull toward the exploration of relationships.

Recently, however, Dickey has been writing books that fit comfortably, though not exclusively, within the thriller genre. His novels featuring the international assassin Gideon (of which RESURRECTING MIDNIGHT is the fourth) contain all of the genre's trademark elements while strongly retaining the erotic aspects of his earlier work. The result is something that is quite different from anything else out there at the moment.

Dickey's Gideon is a man who was born in poverty and has grown to become an assassin for hire. His background has been delivered piecemeal over the course of the Gideon novels and in such a way that the more that is revealed, the less we truly know. But what we do know is that Gideon is ruthless, not entirely likable, and seemingly without a moral code, which is what one might expect of someone in his occupation. Also, following the events of DYING FOR REVENGE, he trusts no one. But when he receives a call from Arizona, a former lover, he reluctantly finds himself drawn into an assignment on behalf of Scamz, a man who once saved his life and is now Arizona's husband.

As it turns out, Scamz is in possession of a briefcase that is part of a matched set. The other briefcase is with a group of assassins known as "The Four Horsemen" --- and they will do anything possible to complete the set. Diametrically opposed to each other, Gideon and a carefully picked team follow a trail of mayhem, destruction and violence from the streets of Miami to the alleys of Buenos Aires, where an apocalyptic confrontation takes place.

Along the way, Gideon discovers that almost everything he believes to be true about himself and others is false, a revelation that will affect every future second of his life. At the same time, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a blackmail scheme set up by a mysterious entity that seems to have access to his entire portfolio. In order to save himself and those few people whom he loves, Gideon is willing to do whatever is necessary to extricate himself from what appears to be a gigantic double cross that will leave few --- if any --- of the players left standing.

RESURRECTING MIDNIGHT doles out violence and erotica in equal doses while presenting an exciting, riveting and addictive plot set against the backdrop of one of the world's most exotic and dangerous cities. Gideon, while not being especially likable, is matched against adversaries who are every bit his equal in ways that the reader will never expect. The last 100 pages, in particular, contain surprises that will leave audiences stunned, including one that may well be unlike anything you have ever read. If you don't think of Eric Jerome Dickey as a thriller writer, your entire perception of the man will be changed after reading RESURRECTING MIDNIGHT.
