I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
I read this book over the course of one long sick day. Great way to pass a day stuck on the couch! I like Gentry a lot. He is complex -- a vulnerable kick-ass man; protector of children who can kill without remorse. I am sad that there is only one more book in the series for me to read right now.
I would absolutely listen to this book again. The story line carries you along. Courtland Gentry is becoming more interesting and complex by the book.
The exciting fight scenes are extremely well done.
Jay Snyder IS the Gray Man. He brings the story to life.
Would have like to listen to the entire book at once, but you have to sleep sometime!
Audible gave the first book in the series away for free and I'm hooked for life. I hope Mr. Greaney writes fast. From some of the other reviews, it seems they waited a long time for book 4. I read (listened to) the entire series in about a week mostly in 10 hour sittings. I am dying to know what happens to Court in the U.S. Come on Mr Greaney give us a break and write.
The audio edition is always better than the print edition when you have a good narrator. And especially when you find the right narrator, and use he/she consistently through the series. The Gray Man novels are no exception--an intense and believable storyline combined with a talented narrator, make for a great listening experience. These novels are on par with the Jack Reacher series for sure. I've listened to them all, and I can't wait for the next one. Thanks Mark Greaney and Jay Snyder!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
I've read it twice and MAY listen again but it will be in the distant future.
I LOVE the 'REAL' , yet tortured hero. Men who have done the unthinkable, but necessary for their country only to be written off by the government for which they worked.
This book has a believable hero with a believable storyline that seems to be accurate to what is going on re: corrupt Mexican police intertwined with drug cartels. There is a lot of action, plenty of heroic, nail-biting escapes and just a tiny feel of romance.
Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest. But his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Court makes his way to one of the only men in the world he can trust - and arrives too late. His friend is dead and buried.
Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted. But in this war, there are no sides - only survivors...
Yes I've heard him in the other Gray Man books, he IS Court Gentry. I am SO glad he is performing book 4 as well.
The only reason he doesn't get 5 stars is because of his portrayal of women-but the guy does a fantastic MANLY job with Gentry and to do female voices in Spanish-it has to be difficult! 4.5 stars!
I got this book early on during a sale-so I read the series out of order-it doesn't matter. Each Gray Man book is stand alone. The only thing that a reader may care about is the continuation of who is hunting Gentry but there is ample explanation in each.
I liken these books to the Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn...this is a HUGE compliment.
NOTE*: A LOT more gore than I'm used to (but it is described in short spurts) and some strong language.
*This reader usually listens to trashy romances but do like my action/adventure to shake things up on occasion-so the gore won't bother the 'typical' Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, etc. reader.
Wow I just stumbled into this author and this book. Amazed at how the first ten seconds of reading I was hooked. In the first ten minutes there was helicopters, foot chase in the jungle, crocodiles, pirranahs, and african bees. Mark Greaney where have you been? I need to get the first two books in this series.
This writer is amazing it is almost like being in the movies watching a 007. He is like the wanted version of James Bond. Never a dull moment with the Grey Man! He keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more and more...
The best part of this book is and all the Grey Man series is that you feel as if you are literally sitting at the movies. Never a Dull Moment and the Writer paints a very vivid picture for you to imagine. The Reader is Amazing as well with his preformance of all the characters and dramazations.
The best part is when the Grey Man drives and armored van thru the Hacienda to rescue is friends family from the cartel.
This is must read for action fans!
Musician, composer, entertainer. I travel around Australia presenting clinics on drums and percussion. I write music from my home studio. I love film music and salsa music. Love being with Audible and listen constantly to comedy, thrillers etc on my iPhone when I'm setting up my show, packing the van or driving to and from the gigs. It's my friend in my ear!
Very cool character that Gray Man. Would want him on my side in a crisis.
The plots and storylines rang true and there was a refreshing lack of the rediculous about the writing. I liked Mark Greaney and will buy more of his books.
Jay Snyder did a really great job with the Narration, the best voice man I've heard yet since I starting listening to audiobooks. Anything he reads in future will induce me to listen. Well done Jay.
This is easily the best Gray Man book so far. The Latin American setting is a nice change of pace, and allowed for some pretty interesting dynamics. Gentry seems more human now after his mistakes in the previous book, and his new vulnerability made me like him more. Greaney is getting better each time. Worth a credit for anyone that likes a good story.
Gritty, Pithy - with lots of twists.
The story does get a little convoluted at points - which detracts a little from the believability of the world being created.
I like the Gray Man as a character, he is flawed, strong and a little enigmatic. I will definitely be looking for more Gray Man novels.
exciting, addictive, action packed
Similar to VInce Flynn's Mitch Rapp series
Another great addition to the Grey Man saga.
