Meet Gideon Crew in the first novel in a high-octane new thriller series from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors.

Revenge is sweet and Gideon Crew is about to get a taste.

As a child, Gideon Crew witnessed the brutal murder of his father; a scientist wrongly framed by the US government, during a dramatic hostage crisis. Twenty years later, Gideon finally gets his revenge and fulfils the promise that he made to his mother on her death bed; to bring down the powerful and corrupt man who destroyed his father.

The Crew family name is finally cleared, but Gideon's story is only just beginning. His daredevil act of revenge has not gone unnoticed and he is soon approached by a shadowy figure who offers him the chance of a lifetime. The only catch? He might not have that much lifetime left and the clock is now ticking.

The Exegesis of Philip K Dick

Philip K. Dick
Authors:
Philip K. Dick

Based on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is the magnificent and imaginative final work of an author who dedicated his life to questioning the nature of reality and perception, the malleability of space and time, and the relationship between the human and the divine. Edited and introduced by Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, this will be the definitive presentation of Dick's brilliant, and epic, final work. In The Exegesis, Dick documents his eight-year attempt to fathom what he called "2-3-74", a postmodern visionary experience of the entire universe "transformed into information". In entries that sometimes ran to hundreds of pages, Dick tried to write his way into the heart of a cosmic mystery that tested his powers of imagination and invention to the limit, adding to, revising, and discarding theory after theory, mixing in dreams and visionary experiences as they occurred, and pulling it all together in three late novels known as the VALIS trilogy. In this abridgment, Jackson and Lethem serve as guides, taking the reader through the Exegesis and establishing connections with moments in Dick's life and work.
