My meeting was on the seventy-second floor at Coach Insignia, a bar that had a panoramic view of Detroit, the Detroit River, and Canada. That was where the man called Eddie Coyle was waiting. him seated at the swank bar, his eyes moving from the television to the well-dressed women as they exited the elevator and sashayed into the dimly lit area. Some wore open-toed high heels and short dresses. Those women were with men who wore Rolexes as symbols of success

It’s love and bullets—Dickey style—in this blistering novel about a couple who say yes to big time risks when playing it safe stops paying off...Dmytryk and Cora Knight were a respectable couple with a solid, comfortable life on the affluent side of Detroit—until a crippling recession annihilates their careers, and they find themselves desperate to hold on. Then a powerful crime boss gives them an opportunity to buy back their old lives. All Dmytryk has to do is rob a few banks: two minutes, in and out, nobody gets hurt. But no sooner does he begin his new life of crime than Cora disappears without a trace.  Now, more determined than ever to get his life back on track, Dmytryk is only one bank job away from moving on and finding Cora. But when the job goes dangerously wrong, Dmytryk realizes that destiny has other plans for him.

I haven't read Dickey in over a decade. Prior to that, I was a fan. I don't really know why I stopped reading his work, but this reintroduction has hooked me once again. His writing has come a long, very good way and this story held my interest from start to finish. The main character's love for his wife is as endearing as it is frustrating, but it's what keeps the tale moving forward. Dickey's descriptions are reminiscent of Walter Mosley's style. The plot itself is masterfully told and literally makes you feel like you're in the room with this group of bank robbers as they plan their next heist. The book is not very fast-paced, but it does have riveting moments of action and adventure.

Tempted by Trouble introduces the reader to Dmytryk Knight, his wife Cora and his partners in crime. Dmytryk is an out of work former executive who turned to assembly line work and was eventually laid off from that job once the economy went belly up. In the process, Cora has turned to stripping to help keep the bills afloat. While Dmytryk is struggling to maintain his parents home, his marriage and his sanity in Detroit, he learns of his wife's latest occupation which drives him insane. One night while stripping, Cora meets the who she believes to be the answer to her prayers, Eddie Coyle. After that chance encounter, Cora introduces Dmytryk to him and his gang for a job that went against everything, but at the same time, taking the job as a getaway man for robbing banks, would save everything he been struggling to hold on to.

Tempted by Trouble is slow moving tale of one man's struggle to overcome the economy by taking a job his education never prepared him for. As the saying goes, there is no honor among thieves and Tempted by Trouble definitely delivered on that prospect. What I would've liked to have had was more background information on Dymtryk, like was he suffering from schizophrenia or was it all because of the massive guilt he was dealing with? The two part ending surprised me, but it also refers back to his mental wellbeing. Another book, with Dmytryk would be most helpful to figure out who he really is.

Eric Jerome Dickey has officially jumped the shark! This book stinks.. There is no easy way to write this as I have been a fan of EJD since the beginning. Though I didn't like Gideon, I still bought and read and respected the Gideon books. But Tempted by Trouble is just too violent, the characters are so poorly developed even the race of the characters are unknown.

I don't want to go into too many details and ruin the whole book for you.. BUT let me tell you that the ending SUCKS... I mean it is a horrible end to a bad book! It was so bad I wanted to throw it away, not give it to a friend, nor resell it on Amazon. I wanted to find the nearest garbage can and make a deposit.

Also I put this book down when I found out the target of the next big heist. I only picked it back up when I was bored and stuck at the beauty shop for hours on end.

Sorry when the next book comes out EDJ, I will wait for the library to get it in, and I am going to have to delete EDJ from my list of favorite authors.

This book was great! I really enjoy the way EJD tells a story and makes you feel like you are watching it on the big screen or better yet, you feel like you're right there on the scene, in the midst of all the drama. This book was thoroughly surprising and very unpredictable and that's important to me. I the Dmytryk Knight character is great. To me he's in the same category as Gideon.(from Sleeping with Stangers, Waking with Enemies, etc. the Gideon series). Not that they're anything alike, but their appeal is still the same. Dmytryk is a faithful, loyal man who has fallen on very bad times along with his wife and he finds himself caught up in a world that he never thought he'd be in. There were some twists and turns in the story that are just simply creative and brilliant. Every character was well developed, neccessary and relevant. There were so many facets to Dmytryk's character that I really hope we haven't seen the last of him.

I have to say this is one book by Eric Dickey that I enjoyed the least. The very flawed character of Dymtrk spoiled the whole book for me. A man who chooses when to be moral, agrees to be a wheelman for robberies. He refuses to believe when his wife has left him and chooses a life of crime. A wife is part of a partnership and not something that is imaginary. Dymtrk is this person, broken and unable to free himself from his wife and crime. He is a character who is annoying. that goes on and on about his wife and morality but lacks both.The ending for me was stupid and disappointing.

I must say I was disappointed with this read. EJD is one of my favorite author's and I was so excited to purchase this novel. It did nothing for me. Seems as if alot of words were put on paper simply for the purpose of making the book longer. This was a novel I recommended to my Book club as a monthly read and some of them had never read EJD before. After this I fear they never will again.

Being a Detroiter I identified with the landmarks and fully understood the struggle Dmytrk and Cora had being "Big 3" works found in a position they never thought they'd be in. However, the drawn out plot left a bad taste in my mouth.
