Publisher's Summary

Court Gentry, aka the Gray Man, is back – and once again on the run from old friends and foes.

Four years ago, Gentry was betrayed by his handlers in the CIA. Now, an old comrade, Russian arms merchant Sidorenko, returns to force him on a mission against his will: kill Sudan’s President Abboud, the supposed trigger for the Darfur genocide. But the CIA has its own plans for Abboud. With his ruthless employers on one side, his blackmailing former friends on the other, and a doomed mission ahead, Gentry would kill just to get out of this one alive.

Every bit as thrilling, informed, and addictive as The Gray Man, and once again skillfully narrated by Jay Snyder, On Target is sure to hit the mark for thriller fans.

Check out Mark Greaney's best-selling previous book, The Gray Man, now.

    Any additional comments?

    I hated this book the first time I listened to it. I put it aside and only when I was stuck for something to listen to did I go back. I still hate the way the author writes, changing a well known phrase with another word in an effort to dress it up. It just grates and pulls me out of the story.

    But once the action gets going there's no stopping it. Bombs, explosions, high-tech ordinance, supernatural marksmanship and heros that don't feel pain. What's not to like?

    "Excellent series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Target to be better than the print version?

    I went into the first book of the series thinking I would not like it but it turned out to be good. Each book has progressed and now I can't wait until the next one. I am a fan of the Gray Man.

    "If you like combat themes, you'll like this book"

    The story was okay, but the extensive descriptions of combat and military strategy was tiring. Not my thing.

    "same but different"

    Read gray man and was looking forward to a sequel. Seems a general formula to go through long list of technical equipmnt preparations only to lose all his equipment as soon as the action starts. A little sterotyping and over macho un realistic with some characters, and again with the unrealistic escapes, reminds me of the old movies where the good guys six gun had way more than six bullets in it. Still a good fun listen, not sure if i will go in for the third one in the series or not without a long break in between.

    "Save your credit"

    This is just awful. I did continue thru the first 50 minutes, amazingly stupid dialog, a protagonist who deserves to be wacked as soon as possible, or not who cares? Cudos to the narrator for doing this gig, I'd rather listen to a reading of the phone book.

    "spine tingling"

    This book was great! I loved it just as much as The Grey Man, from start to finish. Just when you think it's over...yet another twist in the plot. Well worth the credit!!!!

    "Sophomore Slum"

    Pretty big disappointment. Didn't finish the book. His "personal" problem in the book just seems so out of character from the first book and really wasn't plausible given the timeline involved. I really like the first one in the series.

    "I won’t finish it… it’s that bad"

    I never want to know how he gets out from under the dead camel in the middle of the desert (during a gun fight). There’s fiction and then there is fantasy. This writing fell over the edge into flight of the imagination.
    What fascinates the listener of a Good thriller novel is the slight chance that some of the events and situations could actually (maybe) occur. Not here – no way, no how. This story shot far beyond any possibly chance of reality. Court Gentry might as well be from the planet Krypton. The only missing accessory missing is the red cape.
    The author had pushed the limit with the ‘Grey Man’. ‘On Target’ goes beyond the limit, terribly.

    "Absolutely Excellent"

    Better than the first Gray Man novel. I went in this morning to try to find another but for now there are only the two. Excellent books but liked this one best. I am hoping there are more to come. I will definitely buy another Gray Man novel. The narrator is good also. The author needs to continue with this narrator, the reading is very well done. I will definitely buy the next one and hope there is a next one, if it's a dud, I may stop there but hoping there are more with good plots such as these. I also appreciate the length of a book. Detail is most important in mystery thrillers. I hate short books and will never ever buy an abridged version of a book. Abridged versions are for those with the attention span of a 3rd grader.
