With 24 novels to his name, Eric Jerome Dickey is constantly praised for his finesse in blending heart-pounding scenes with sexy sub-plots. His books have frequently earned spots on the New York Times bestseller list and have been nominated for the NAACP Image Award in the category of Outstanding Literary Work multiple years. He has been awarded the Best Contemporary Fiction and Author of the Year award at the 2006 African American Literary Award Show and he was nominated for Storyteller of the Year at the 2008 ESSENCE Literary Awards.

“Finding Gideon” is packed with pulse-driving action, forbidden rendezvous, and dark secrets. For readers who have begged for Gideon’s return, Dickey has some shocking revelations, but new readers will be able to pick up the storyline and run with the action right away—no binge reading necessary. Dickey’s new novel stirs up a whirlwind of sex and violence that spans the globe–and leaves no moral boundary uncrossed.
