From the executive producer of 24 and upcoming television thrillers – Homeland, on Showtime, and Legends set for NBC—Howard Gordon makes an action-packed debut as a novelist with GIDEON’S WAR.
A veteran Hollywood writer and producer with more than twenty years of experience in successful franchises like 24, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel, Gordon’s signature ability to combine thrill-a-minute, nail-biting action and edge-of-the-seat suspense on screen flawlessly translates in his first foray into the publishing world with GIDEON’S WAR: A Novel(Touchstone Hardcover / Simon & Schuster; January 11, 2011; $24.99; ISBN: 978-1-4391-7581-1).
24’s Kiefer Sutherlandsays “True to form of my eight-year experience with Howard Gordon on 24, GIDEON’S WAR is a rip-roaring thriller.”
About the book:
Gideon Davis, an American peacemaker, knows more about hush-hush discussions in Capitol corridors than hand-to-hand combat. But his more practical, tactical skills come into play when he’s called on by family friend and government bigwig Earl Parker to chaperone a rogue agent from Southeast Asia to Washington, D.C. The agent, Tillman Davis, has promised to turn himself in—but only to his estranged brother, Gideon.
Unexpected twists and turns send the mission awry, leaving Gideon, with the help of the attractive, cunning Kate Murphy, to evade hostile local insurgents led by Tillman in this page-turner that will surely keep you guessing. Alex Berenson, New York Times bestselling author of The Midnight House says, “Howard Gordon, the man behind 24, makes the transition from screen writer to novelist look easy with his ahead-of-the-curve thriller.”
