I am so excited by this series! I need to start on the next book. This story had me in all types of mixed emotion! I only hope the drug habit thing goes away! Hard to imagine someone hopped up performing at the level that Gentry appears to do almost flawlessly.
Not knowing better, I started this series with the most current novel, Back Blast. Six became an instant favorite and I've been hooked on Greaney's Cort Gentry since. I immediately started at the beginning with the first Gray Man book and just finished my 3rd in less than two weeks.
That said, this one was my least favorite of the 3 I have now read/heard. The bar is very, very high at this point, however, so I still loved it. The narrator is fantastic and fully brings the characters to life, as the author must have intended. The female voices are not as effectively portrayed, but I wouldn't change a thing. Cort and Hightower's voices are too perfectly executed, along with the remaining range of characters and accents -- to find any notable problem with the performance.
I have listened to many Lee Child books, never read a Clancy- and didn't actually know I would enjoy this intrigue/espionage genre quite so much. I do know, I'm hooked on this author. I'll probably spend my next credit on the next Mr Gentry adventure momentarily.
I do recommend reading these novels in order, although the novels completely stand alone. In fact I really appreciate that this author doesn't manufacture details to unnecessarily tell an already told story from the previous books in the series. If old information is useful, he drops it in. Otherwise, you get to know Cort well enough just reading the one in hand.
I recommend! Enjoy.

This seemed so interesting and since I do not like to start book in the middle of a series I wanted to read the first book. Little did I know that in 2013 I purchased the firs one. Fortunately, after revisiting the first book, I know this is not be for me.
Yes, the middle was all fighting with no plot change. I actually skipped a few chapters and feel like I missed nothing
No. Same reason
I liked the beginning where the plot was established
Excellent book where you really get into the characters and the story... It truly takes you into the world of Gentry.
I've just downloaded ballistic...
Something was missing in this Gray Man book which made the others so good. It was a little disjointed with rough transitions. Still a good listen with the always-excellent narration by Jay Snyder.
I'm a Cardiac Anesthesiologist with two college aged children. I used 2 check my kid's books for appropriateness & now enjoy those books 2.
This series is good. It is not great. I do enjoy the books. If you want a superhuman killing machine from the black ops division of the CIA, this is a good choice. Mr. Greatest has good plots and he follows his plots with nice flow of story lines. His characters are a bit unbelievable but they are supposed to be unbelievable. These guys are the top of the top and we wouldn't read these books if we didn't believe there is a guy like "The Grey Man" out there.
It's a good book. Enjoy.
If you're looking for a suspenseful thriller or spy novel, look no further. I'm not exactly sure how this series escaped my notice, but I sure am glad I found it. The characters are solid, the plot is well thought out, and the series itself is consistently good with excellent production and narration. Recommended!
