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....

    "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.

    "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
    ""Bourne for the 2000's". Without a doubt"
    If you could sum up Ballistic in three words, what would they be?

    Court Gentry is one of the best characters to along since Bourne.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Through a thorough and complete scene setup, which included detailed descriptions of obstacles, weapons and sub characters - along with the obvious twists and turns as each scene evolved.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    The Grey Man, Court Gentry, of course.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Read all the Grey Man novels - they're great.

    The Grey Man


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ""radio voice" just too much for me."

    The narration was really too much. I laughed out loud at some points for how overly dramatic it was. There were so many inconsistencies in this book. I felt that the writing was dull and predictable. But the narration was what really sent me over the edge.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    Story
    "Move over Jason Bourne!"
    Would you try another book from Mark Greaney and/or Jay Snyder?

    Yes!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Okay, the bad guys are BAD GUYs, but maybe not so much patriotic stuff... just get back to Court Gentry being an ex-CIA assassin, and being hunted. Beginning started out slow, less violence, but if I asked to remove it, it wouldn't be the Grey man series.


    Could you see Ballistic being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, cable tv series picked up by Showtime, HBO, or Netflix where they can push the sensors with violence. I would use an older man, not some baby faced kid. Det. Vega from Motive, Louis Ferreira, or Javier from Castle,Jon Huertas ?


    Any additional comments?

    I will get the next book!
