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.

    Story
    "Impressed by work with Clancy, but Gray Man flops."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't say I regret listening, but I will say that I'll be returning this one. Greaney weaves a very intricate tale for his character much like his work with Clancy's Jack Ryan series, but Greaney's own characters lack a drive and direction that he is able to write into Clancy's.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something along the same lines (spy/intrigue/espionage/suspense/mystery) but likely not with the Gray Man.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration is good, but at times the saliva in the narrator's mouth is VERY apparent and detracts from the overall experience. To be fair, it only happens in certain parts when the narrator is whispering in an accented voice.


    Do you think On Target needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Does it need one? No. Does it deserve one? If it is as well-researched as the first two books and if Greany decides to add some charisma and drive to his character, then yes.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading the first book and listening to the second, I feel like Greaney is reaching for a John Clark-esque character with Court Gentry, but falls short. Gentry is touted as a mysterious, skilled assassin but seems to stumble his way through these adventures. In the first book he spends most of the time mortally wounded, making his mystique hard to believe. In this second outing he follows his ideals to rediculous lengths, and still somehow comes out on top.

    The author needs to decide if Gentry is a badass, ruthless assassin or an idealistic operative with mediocre skills and a golden horseshoe.

    Story
    "Fast Paced and Fun"

    Another non-stop thriller. “On Target” starts at 99MPH and just goes up from here. Moving from fight to fight the Gray Man does what he can to keep the good alive and deliver punishment to the evil. The book is well written allowing the reader to enjoy the action and without over complicating every move. I guess if I have to say something negative about the book it would be that the characters are a bit one dimensional and static, but that’s not why you listen to this book!

    Jay Snyder does a wonderful job with the narration from the change in characters and accents to his pacing. He really adds to the enjoyment of the story.

    "Disappointment"

    I like the character Court Gentry- it's important to him to do the right thing. This is not the type of book that I expect to be realistic. But...some things are taken way too far (like the injuries Court sustains and the fighting he's able to do). There were things that were over explained as if the reader wouldn't get the point.

    This book had so many good reviews. I listened to the first and I'll give the next one a try, but if it's much of the same I'll move on.

    "Best action character since Jack Ryan"

    Really good listen. Court is the classic good guy bad guy that you can't help but root for. I wish his love interest played snigger part, but the action sequences are superb.

    This is a good book, well narrated, but I felt that it wasn't as good as Ballistic. Would still recommend.

    Story
    "Foolish"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A believable story line would have been a great help. Not only were the events far fetched they were totally illogical. The story was way out in left field and when the team extracted its members one by one while leaving their target to be extracted last, 12 hours later, I gave up and quit listening.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Did a good job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    "Worth it"

    The voice acting is great... But it sounds like they use a man for the women's voices. All the girls sound the same from Book to book,which takes away from the story.

    I need more Court Gentry.
