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.

“An action-filled yet touching story of a man whose reason has long ago been subsumed by his work ethic.” (Publishers Weekly)
Yes, The Grey Man series is wonderful, a little predictable but great story. Can't wait to read/listen to the next one.
Who else but The Grey Man and of course Sir Donald. Both are in a terrible business, but due to governments and greed, a necessary business. They are honorable men who try to make the best of horrible situations. I would love to meet them both any time.
Jay Snyder is The Grey Man. I love the timber and cadence of his voice. He brings it to life.
The epilogue, Court wants a life, but never seems to be able to have it, even for a moment.
I didn't think the ending was very good...disappointed. It lacked the excitement and action of the first book.
Yes, if it is on sale.
Say something about yourself!
Greaney's first Gray Man book kept me listening but wasn't wonderful. The second in the series was a complete flop for me, stopped listening.
Nothing sticks out. Good book, good read. Entertaining. Reader was clear. Tied together nicely at end.
Father, Husband, Business owner. Enjoy the entire Vince Flynn series, and would recommend them to anyone who enjoys action books.
This book starts off with some promise, but like the previous ones it goes into the most unrealistic situations that work out for The Grey man. There are some slow parts in the writing but the narration is really good. When I compare this series to the Vince Flynn series, I can only give it an average rating.
I have tried all of the Grey Man book and will most likely try another. They are just interesting enough to keep you going, but not interesting enough to make you anxious for the next.
The narration is excellent, and does a great job with bringing the story to life. Very well done.
No, and for all the reasons that I previously mentioned.
This is a nice time killer, not a great story that is full of action. You will find yourself thinking "No Way this would happen" or "No one would live through this", just too unrealistic.
NO WAY. the story line is totally unbelievable. those of us that read this genre are used to pretty interesting circumstances but the gray man is like ethan hunt and jason bourne and who knows who else. no one is that indestructible
give us something that could really happen
didnt have one
narrator was good is about all i can say on a positive note
It's like an action movie that plays out in your mind
Jay Snyder's voice, tone and dialect made the "Sierra 1" or Zach Character very interesting. The author describes the Zach as white but in my mind Snyder portrayed him as an African American. Well done!
For me the Grey Man character seems cursed with the spirit of Quasimodo
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
The Gray Man books are rollicking fun. I have listened to the first two novels in less than a week and ready to start number three. The story lines are full of action, political intrigue, shady characters, and characters I want to meet for drinks. Gentry is terrifically flawed with a life that is both interesting and revolting. He is hard; I see some crazy mix of Jason Bourne, The Rock and Cool Hand Luke. What I like best about him though is that he isn't perfect. He is a soldier and a soldier of fortune. He knows what he does and remembers his training. But he fights an ill-timed attraction to a woman, an addiction to pain killers, and his own morality. I like him. And I am looking forward to the next installment in his story.
He is really good at portraying the men that live this type of secret life -- SEALS and spies. He gives them strength and makes them vulnerable despite the strength. His tenor is spot on and I really cannot pick anything I don't like about his performance.
The Gray Man lives and fueled my need to know what happened next. Mark Greaney delivered another action pack story that I found myself listening to at every possible moment.
I enjoyed the snippets of Court Gentry's character that betrayed his tough no nonsense mission focused self and found myself laughing out loud at the banter that took place between him and his old comrade.
So many scenes rate as my favourite to just select one but I did enjoy the scene in the dessert when Court rigged the equipment in the truck and the moral debate that followed after shooting their attackers
If I could I would have listened to the book in one session but I had to go play work.
Looking forward to uploading book 3
I was very disappointed with the writing, language, and reader's performance. I am not sure what all the readers/listeners found to give it such a high rating.
Spent more time writing it. It seemed that he may have just "churned" this one out to get it to market.
Voice was fine. Reading was below expectations
