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- always has twists you do not see coming.
Gray Man, of course.
If you have not tried the Gray Man series, start with the first one.
A bit of a slow start, but it takes off quickly. The narrator does an excellent job bringing a different voice and tone to the characters. The 3rd book continues the drama from the earlier 2, and leaves off with a pretty interesting plot line for.the next.
Love this narrator for this series. Fantastic story. Not as action packed as The Grey Man and I'm not sure how I feel about the end. If I had to compare the two...The Grey Man is the best. Don't like the character change. I can't wrap my head around a hero with this particular physical need to numb pain. I think he is a worthy character except for that need. Debating if I wish to continue on.
The story was great. The hero became a disappointment. He fulfilled his task, you can see he is honourable...that weakness...just makes me vexed.
I love the heart of the Gray man but struggled to finish this one. It Was just too predictable.
I am not sure. The first in the series was more of a thriller. Not great, but pretty good and plenty of potential... The second was tedious and contrived. I saw the great reviews, but I have to wonder if these folks read the same book.
I am going to try the third in the series. If it is like the second, I will move on...
