This is my second "Gray Man" novel and both have been heart pounding, action filled adventures. Greaney writes a plausible story line that keeps the unexpected coming at you. The narrator does a good job at being subtle enough not to be noticeable but still getting the action across. And the Gray Man will thrill with narrow escapes, incredible survivals and even when the odds are against him, comes out on top. He and the other characters will keep you on the edge of your seat. I find myself taking longer trips just to listen to a bit more!
The Gray Man is never dull and motionless. He never falls to uncountable enemies or tight situations and in this regard he is Greaney's version of Jack Reacher. A Teflon Hero.
If you like your action novels fast, violent and just a little mindless then this is for you. I didn't expect anything else and so I was pleasantly surprised by the story. Just hang on and enjoy the ride.
I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys Bourne escapes and activities.
Gray Man because he can get out of any situation
Great voice and the tone fit the story
I had enough of a reaction that I bought other books in the series
Cort Gentry lives a pretty dark life.
Not quite Clive Cussler. A little unrealistic to think a person can hide from all of those agencies, legal and illegal
non stop action, bigger than life hero al la Mitch Rapp .. I admit it, I'm a sucker for a rousing cave man tale
The first chase scene comes to mind ... crocadiles/killer bees/fully automatic rifle fire... and that kind of tells the whole story
Cmon..who wouldnt be moved by our hero sliding across a phone line over the heads of a crowd in panic, accurately shooting bad guys on the other side while dodging bullets and keeping track of some innocents he was protecting
The Gray Man, the first book was much better. This one was kind of predictable and not memorable. The evil, sadistic drug lord and his motivation for risking his entire operation was just stupid, as his counselor kept trying to tell him.
One part that got me (light spoiler alert) was that he fornicates with a girl that is constantly praying and encouraging him to be more spiritual, and after she sleeps with him she decides to be a nun!
Big, tough, secret assassin who saves the poor family from the drug lord, and who works alone.
The narration was fine, the story was fine, just not memorable.
I never read the print version but I can say that Jay does a better job than I would in my head. Well done. The author makes or breaks a book but the narrator can kill even the best of stories. Can you imagine Fran Drescher as a narrator? Jay does an amazing job with a great story.
This is in the same class as my favorites like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and Joel Rosenberg. Just great story telling with attention to the details. Getting the tech right makes all the difference.
This is as good or better than "The Gray Man". Loved both
I wish I could but I did get it done over 2 days.
Just a great job by all
I don't know which is better, the story itself or the reading by Jay Snider. both were spot on.
This book was awesome just like the other two books I read by Mark Greaney The Grey Man and On Target. I can't wait until the next series. I would say his books are as good as the Vince Flynn novels with the plot and the main character Court Gentry.
I like how Mark Greaney does not make Court Gentry look like some kind of superman who fights and never gets hurt. I am also waiting on a series which comes out and explains what Court actually did that upsetted the CIA. In this book it was sort of said but not entirely. I guess this unless I missed it is part of the authors attempt to keep listeners hooked on the series.
