    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Great book !! I have a new author to look forward listening to again. This was fast paced, never slow, well narrated and well written. Mark Greaney is the best new author I have read in quite some time. I can't wait to see what The Gray Man does next.

    Complex and action packed from beginning to end. Very well thought out story and characters that are drawn so well that you are really rooting for them or against them. Lots of breath holding suspense too.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. I read all the usual suspects in this genre (Thor, Greaney, Flynn, etc. and I thought this complex story was right up there with them. I loved the intrigue and I especially enjoyed how the author ended the book. Often an author will just leave a cliffhanger which usually ticks me off because it holds me hostage to buy another. I liked how we know there is more to come from Scott Rourke but the reader is satisfied that everything important was cleared up in this one.

    I highly critical and the first to point out bad narration and I don't know what some reviews are talking about. I thought the narrator did a fine job. Off to the next in this series!!!

    Nicole Frank shouldn't have been able to survive the car accident, much less crawl up the steep ravine. Not in the dark, not in the rain, not with her injuries. But one thought allows her to defy the odds and flag down help: Vero.

    Just went I thought I figured this out there was another twist. Then I figured it out again...wrong more twists and so it went until the very end. Lisa Gardner did an incredible job moving this story along through complicated and unsuspecting twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book.

    From coast to coast, the nation is witnessing a new wave of terror - suicide bombers incite blind panic and paralyzing fear, a flight attendant tries to crash an airliner, a police officer opens fire on fans in a stadium, and at CIA headquarters, a deputy director goes on a murderous rampage. The perpetrators appear to be American but are actually covert agents in a vast network of terror, selected and trained for one purpose only: the complete annihilation of America.

    Lots of fast moving action. Very like able characters who aren't perfect machines which makes the tension even better. Great series. On to book #3 in the series.

Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really?

With the biological weapons still missing, the specter of an attack against the United States looms dangerously closer. Desperate to stop Al Qaeda, Daniel Petrovich's "black ops" team is sent to investigate the last lead provided by Anatoly Reznikov, the twisted scientist responsible for designing the virus.

    The third book in the series did not disappoint. Great seat of your pants action from start to finish. I am so glad I found this series and I am looking forward to the next. This rates right up there with Vince Flynn, Brad Thorn and Mark Greaney.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    Story

    Michael Connelly once again writes a great story. The characters are well done and plot is intriguing. That being said, the narration was so horrific that I almost called my doctor for a Prozac prescription to get through the depressing narration. Titus Welliver made ZERO attempt to distinguish one character from another and his delivery was so dead pan that I almost gave up. Get this one on Kindle or buy the actual book folks.
