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.

    "Mark Greaney already stands among the best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely would, but you have gotta listen to, "The Grey Man" first.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Fast non-stop, with twists and turns around every page. Greaney has come up with plots that are extremely original.

    I'm a daily commuter who squeezes every penny and minute out of each book. Audible gives that much needed break from my busy schedule!

    Story
    "True entertainment!"
    Where does On Target rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely in my top ten.


    What other book might you compare On Target to and why?

    American Sniper, Lone Survivor. Both of the previous books are based on true events and included a lot of detail. On Target is so well written and studied I felt as if everything the Gray Man experienced came straight out of a top secret file stolen from the desk of the director for the CIA.


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

    Definitely helps develop the charters, his performance provides tons of detail that I would not have been able to provide for myself.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted it to last longer, and went straight to the next book in the series.

    "Gray Man Novels are the Best"
    If you could sum up On Target in three words, what would they be?

    Rivetting, Thrilling, Challenging


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twist and turns that take place throughout the entire story.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As always Jay Snyder is one of the best narrators I've listened to. Easy to listen to for hours adds expression as necessary that creates an overall enjoyable listening experience.


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

    Yes, absolutely

    Story
    "Greaney does it again! (And so does Snyder!)"

    After I finished listening to "The Gray Man" ??? Greaney's prequel to "On Target" ??? I couldn't imagine how Greaney could surpass that first effort. "The Gray Man" contained so much well-written action that, I thought, Greaney must have exhausted all future possibilities for his poor, battered protagonist, Court Gentry. How could one man endure any more adventure? In his place, I would have patted myself on the back for a job well-done, and retired to rest on my laurels! But Court Gentry is made of sterner stuff. "On Target" comes at us with both barrels blazing. Gentry has not even recovered from all his injuries acquired in "The Gray Man," when Greaney throws him into the soup again. Now I see how Greaney keeps us on the edge of our seats, biting our nails: He puts Gentry into completely impossible situations, with no way at all to survive ??? and then ??? drawing upon his knowledge, experience, and skill, and utilizing only a few odds and ends on hand ??? Gentry figures out a way to prevail. Whew ??? that was close! Greaney's books should carry a warning on their covers: "This novel is harrowing!" Plus, Greaney does his research. With "On Target," you will learn more than you ever wanted to know about the Sudan (don't feel bad ??? I had to look it up in my atlas, too) and the horrors that have been perpetrated there. You will also discover how first-world countries manipulate the destinies of third-world countries to suit their own purposes ??? using, of course, our favorite assassin-for-hire to accomplish the job. Only Gentry happens to have a conscience and a heart in approximately the right place, which throws a monkey wrench into the best-laid plans of conniving politicians. Once again, poor Gentry gets all beaten and battered and bloody, and ends up having to run for his life ??? again. Which sets us up for the next audiobook in this series: "Ballistic." Long story short: Just buy it. And take tomorrow off, because you'll be staying up all night.

    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?

    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.

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