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.

    "Edge of your seat"
    Would you listen to On Target again? Why?

    Yes, The Grey Man series is wonderful, a little predictable but great story. Can't wait to read/listen to the next one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jay Snyder is The Grey Man. I love the timber and cadence of his voice. He brings it to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The epilogue, Court wants a life, but never seems to be able to have it, even for a moment.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I didn't think the ending was very good...disappointed. It lacked the excitement and action of the first book.


    Would you recommend On Target to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if it is on sale.

    What would have made On Target better?

    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.

    Story
    "Average Series of stories."
    Where does On Target rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


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

    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.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration is excellent, and does a great job with bringing the story to life. Very well done.


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

    No, and for all the reasons that I previously mentioned.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Really. not believable story but"

    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


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

    give us something that could really happen


    Which scene was your favorite?

    didnt have one

    What did you like best about this story?

    It's like an action movie that plays out in your mind


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    For me the Grey Man character seems cursed with the spirit of Quasimodo

    Story
    "fast, edgy, intriguing - smash em' up fun"
    What did you love best about On Target?

    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.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    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.

    Story
    "Excellent listening"
    What made the experience of listening to On Target the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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


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

    If I could I would have listened to the book in one session but I had to go play work.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to uploading book 3

    What would have made On Target better?

    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.


    What could Mark Greaney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Spent more time writing it. It seemed that he may have just "churned" this one out to get it to market.


    What three words best describe Jay Snyder’s voice?

    Voice was fine. Reading was below expectations
