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....

    Story
    "Another white knuckle ride"
    If you could sum up Ballistic in three words, what would they be?

    Action packed drama


    What other book might you compare Ballistic to and why?

    The Scarecrow series by Mathew Reilly.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked how Court lifted the veil a little this time and we got to see more of who he is underneath the tough exterior.


    Any additional comments?

    My favourite line was when he was with 'the girl' and things are getting steamy and he says to her "I have no training in this (being with a woman)."

    "Untouchable!"

    Again! The narrator gets all the voices down. Great story too. Court Gentry is like Dexter mixed with robin hood!
    I will be jumping in to the next volume as soon as I can.

    Story
    "Oh No the Roller Coaster's off the Track"

    When I was a kid when we went to the Movies and there was always a Cartoon and a short action story. It was full of a action and peril for the hero and his girl. It always ended with the hero in a predicament that looked hopeless,the tease was come back next week to see if our hero survives. Of course he does! He makes an escape to save the day. That's the Gray Man. We know he's going to survive and wait to hear how and we cheer when its happening.

    Book 3 gives a little more insight into the Character but not enough. Ok he's a kick ass guy impossible to kill. I can accept it but I want to know more backstory. Any story, I want to like this guy not only because he has more lives than " Will E Coyote" but because he's a real guy. He saves the heroine again and she lets him off the hook (and what a hook it is). It just isn't enough. We know about James Bond, Indiana Jones and many more action hero's. Give me some meaty juicy stuff about the Gray even if its fictional. Ha!
    I'm hooked I've started book three and I doubt there's much more space on his body for wounds.

    Jay Snyder is impressive, he's become the engine that drives this Series, he never gets in the way of the this runaway express and he's cool during the ride.

    "Great read!"

    another awesome book and the Gray Man series. amazing how he gets himself in such difficult situations like when he was strapped to the bed frame and was being electrocuted and yet he still gets out of it. I also like the fact that though he is a secret agent type he goes out of his way to help others.
