Publisher's Summary

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
    "Kept me wanting to listen. couldn't put it down. I"

    Its been the 4th Grey Man book I've listened and one of the best for story line, twist, plot. Enjoyed very much. especially how he got out of the hands of his torturers and his plan to reach out to LA Rocha's rivals. As always the narrator brings us into the atmosphere of the story. I will be looking for the next.

    "Not his best work all"

    The book failed to meet my expectations. Left me hanging with a very strange ending. Could've been better kind of disappointed.

    Story
    "Intense; predictable, yet satisfying."
    Would you listen to Ballistic again? Why?

    I have listened to this novel at least twice/ There is a very good amount of detail to the story, the characters, the political environment, the Good and Bad guy.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Greaney? Why or why not?

    Yep. I like the spy/assassin stuff. Impossible odds, and pulling through, but scathed.

    Variety...the spice of life! I read a variety of genres. From historical fiction, to murder mystery, to vampires and on to teen fiction.

    "My Favorite Gray Man Book Yet...."

    I love all the books in the Gray Man series. I liked this one even more if that's possible. Each of these books is like a wild, continual ride. Just when you think things are going to settle down, something explosive and exciting happens. In this book, our hero and most-wanted fugitive, meets up with the family of an old friend. I completely enjoyed the flashbacks in this book and getting to know our assassin so much better and probing deeper into this complex character. You won't be disappointed in this series. The reader does a great job as well keeping the listener enticed. If you are new to the Gray Man series, definitely start with book #1.

    "Engaging!"

    Enjoyed this thriller much more than expected. Details put you right there in the action I ended up yelling to the characters "get out" from time to time. Lots of twists and turns and I like it when I can say "I didn't see that coming"

    "Typical Grey Man"

    Lots of enemies, trouble & a little lust this time in Mexico. Cort Gentry has added more enemies who want him dead, but does come out on top - this time.

    Story
    "Court Gentry never disappoints"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ballistic to be better than the print version?

    Not read the print version, but it is unabridged so should be identical


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ballistic?

    The restaurant scene in PV where the grey man shows up to torment his target with a severed head, explosives and daring


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    He delivers great drama, and puts a lot into the different speaking parts


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "A one man solution to the war on drugs"


    Any additional comments?

    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
