War, war and more war
Not much of a plot. They were always fighting, getting out of one problem or another. Tedious. Not much characterization. Characters were stereotypes.
This was my second Gray Man novel. I enjoyed the Gray Man that was unstoppable in saving a family. I strongly disliked where the author took the character in this book, a flawed, weak, failure of a hero. Not planning to buy a third.
this was a great book. I wasn't really looking for a lot when I found this author and character. But this has really been a good read. He keeps the reader on the edge all times and knows how to use believable clots. There are plots and subplots and they all work together. I will continue to read this series.
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
