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....
Listen to another Gray Man novel.

"Bourne for the new millennium." (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author)
"The story is so propulsive, the murders so explosive, that flipping the pages feels like playing the ultimate video game." (The New York Times)
All the pieces fell together - and the humanity of the gray man was striking. Parts of the other books I've read in the series made sense. Plus the fact the book is very fast paced and the personalities of the characters come alive and I cared.
These stories always start a little slow. Three or four chapters to catch you up but after that the story runs at a decent clip. I enjoyed this story but I'm somewhat reminded of Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. Sooner or later the gray man has to have a break. :-)
Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.
Great story and performance. Greaney is underrated as a writer. This series is on the level of Mitch Rapp.
this audiobook was really well read and kept my attention from the very beginning until the very end I would highly recommend it
I have to be honest... Mitch Rapp has some competition here. I'm a devout Rapp fan, but there is something about gentry that is refreshing. I recommend the three books in this series I've heard so far without reservation. If you like this style of storehouse will not be disappointed!
I never write reviews, although I listen to a lot of books. I found this series of the gray man books about a month ago. I am on my third book, actually just completed it tonight. And can hardly wait to purchase the fourth one. It is just action-packed and full of adventure. Well thought out and the guy who reads the book does very well. If you like special forces stories and spy novels this is right up there with the best I've ever read/listened to.
Boy am I disappointed. I think Mark Greaney can write a good thriller. He has done a fantastic job taking over the Tom Clancy series without profanity. His Gray Man series is good but tainted by a increasing use of F bombs to describe scenes. I threw in the towel half way in after a barrage of F this F that, those MFers, etc. It is just really unnecessary.
This story centers on a drug cartel theme where the Gray Man works to save the wife and unborn child of a friend who once saved his life. Aside from the F bombs, I found myself struggling to get behind our hero; Courtland Gentry. He doesn't have many worthy characteristics for me to root for him.
Jay Synder is an incredible reader. He does a superb job with male and female voices as well as foreign accents.
If you're OK with a lot of profanity, this may be a good series for you. I'm going back to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series and Tom Clancy's series on Jack Ryan as I have really enjoyed those espionage books as well as other writers who don't lean on profanity in their writing style.
Another great book about the Grey Man, can't wait for the 3rd book in the series! Narration was 5/5
"Boys own adventure"
Hide, seek out & eliminate all enemies, but stay alive. Goes at a pace. Enjoyable
now I never knew the Mexico situation was the horrific. great story.. gripping stuff
"Love this series"
Couldn't wait for my chances to listen
Six worse remain to complete review
"Court Gentry never disappoints"
Not read the print version, but it is unabridged so should be identical
The restaurant scene in PV where the grey man shows up to torment his target with a severed head, explosives and daring
He delivers great drama, and puts a lot into the different speaking parts
"A one man solution to the war on drugs"
Great story, faced paced and totally compelling. I find with the Grey Man novels that I go out of my way for extra listening opportunities
