National bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey will appear at Borders Books and Music at the Mall at Stonecrest at 7 p.m. Thursday to discuss and sign copies of his newest book of fiction, "Resurrecting Midnight." The New York Times calls his writing "addictive," while Entertainment Weekly hails him as "King of African-American Fiction."
With two books publishing each year, Dickey is pushing his talent to the next level and his seventeenth novel, "Resurrecting Midnight" gives fans even more of Dickey’s signature action, drama and passion that they crave.
The novel continues with international assassin, Code Name: Gideon. He spilled blood for the first time when he was seven years old, with a single shot to the head of a man who was attempting to kill the woman Gideon had known as his mother. The victim was none other than his own father, a man of unspeakable evil. This pivotal event shaped Gideon throughout his life, made him who he is, one of the fiercest, most feared hired guns in the world. And one of the most hunted.
After nearly losing his life in Antigua during a mission that went terribly wrong, Gideon trusts no one. But when a former lover and grifter resurfaces in need of his skills, Gideon agrees to take on a dangerous assignment in Argentina. His mission is to obtain a briefcase containing one part of a larger puzzle and obliterate anyone who gets in the way. Another group of assassins — the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse — has the same objective, and each member is a world-class killer with a dark and dangerous past. Nothing can stop either team of renegades from completing its mission, except each other.
As Gideon struggles to keep promises and uncover information about his past, he finds himself at the center of the ultimate double-cross and he is forced to do what he must to protect himself and those closest to him. Set amidst the exotic and vibrant streets of Miami and Buenos Aires, "Resurrecting Midnight" is an action-filled thriller from one of the kings of the genre.
