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)
I have always been a reader, until my 3-hr a day round trip commute. Now, I am a listener - and I am hooked on audio books!
First of all, Jay Snyder is an excellent reader! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one was a little bit disappointing. If you compare the two books, it seems like they are two different main characters. I understand why Court is a little different here (no spoilers), but it seemed that his lack of sharpness, mistakes, and lapses in paying attention were quite egregious when compared to his almost preternatural awareness in the first book. I enjoyed it enough to buy the 3rd book though...
This book is an excellent follow up to the first in the series. The story flows well and doesn't have you scratching your head trying to figure out how the story is unfolding.
Plenty of action and small twist and turns, all which make for entertaining listening.
Jay Snyder's performance is quite acceptable, the ability to take on and distinguish the different characters makes him easy to listen too
Anyone who enjoys the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series will enjoy these books
The concept was good, the story was good.
Greany made the Grey Man an idiot. for an experienced assassin the Grey Man was stupid about antibiotics, tapped phones, tracking phones and people. Then to make it even more unbelievable he throws in Grey Man on drugs. How totally stupid!
No skip this one. It will not impact you if you are reading all three Grey Man novels. this is a better door stop.
I haven't read the book, only listened to it, but I would think it would have to be simply because of the way that the reader (Jay Snider) masterfully weaves the story, plays each character, and delivers an amazing story with perfect timing!
Books in the Jack Reacher series, the Nathan McBride Series, and Cam Richter series are all in the same class in my opinion.
Court Gentry, the main man in the story for sure. He is awesome, I wish he was a real person so I could meet the guy!
Yes, near the end when Court has to deal with the dictator, and someone else gets involved that has different plans. I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil things.
This entire series is great, the narrator is awesome, it's a fun ride through and through.
Up at the top. The story telling is top notch, up there with the Jack Reacher Books and Bond and Bourne Books. However, the narration is squeaky and annoying at points just because of the guys voice. That is my only complaint. The author did a fine job.
The main Character the Gray Man.
He has squeaky parts that come up all the time in his narration that make it very difficult to listen to. I am vastly surprised that Audible actually let this pass in a book so good. Anyone else would have been a good narrator. This one was sub par at best. However, the story is good enough to suffer through the parts.
Narrators voice was annoying on some syllables making it very difficult to listen to. I would be quality checking that before releasing a good book such as this from now on.
Love it! every single page, everything about the Gray Man. Highly recommend if you enjoy a fast pace exciting book with lots of actions.
The performance was wonderful. Book two Sid not make me rush to buy the third book like gray man made me immediately purchase book two.
He makes me believe I'm really listening to court gentry.
Yes, I love court.
The Gray Man is my kind of character... he is a lot like an updated version of Rambo. I love the idea of these books, but there is something lacking. The action is good, and the general plot is good. But not great. The Gray Man makes some decisions throughout the book that left me scratching my head.
If you like action novels, this is a decent read and will keep you entertained.
I'm a guy. I like books about war and sci-fi. I listen to 2 or 3 books a week.
Great audiobook! Great story, I can see why Clancy co-writes with Mark Greany! Couldn't wait to see where Greany goes with the next one in this series!
There was never a letup in the action and the excitement level remained high. It kept this listener's adrenaline flowing.
