Gideon Crew is a physicist, an actor, an outdoorsman, and oh yeah, a pathological liar and an accomplished art thief. Pretty interesting character. His father was killed in front of him when he was a child ostensibly because of treason. But alas, when Crew is all grown up, he learns that his father was not a traitor, but that he was killed to cover up a failed intelligence operation. That makes Gideon pretty mad, obviously and sets him off on sequence of thrilling escapades in his attempt to get revenge.
