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.

    "Well worth the listen"

    Good story. It keeps you listening. Mark Greaney came through on this book. The Gray Man finally shows some personality.

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

    The tremendous storytelling ability of Mark Greaney.


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

    This book matches most of the Baldacci series for storytelling and suspense.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance would be enhanced if a female did the female characters.

    Story
    "Please end!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    If you like chewing gum for the mind (and I do for fun) this is that; but it is somewhat dried out, old flavorless chewing gum. The character is a hopeless mess making absurdly bad decisions. The other cast members are weak but not as pathetic.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    The reader is excellent - brought real life to each character he narrates.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No - not even if it was free to get in and someone drove me there and back.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was disappointing on so many levels. Superman protagonists are quite common in this genre (and The Grey Man is no exception), but normally the Supermen make fairly good decisions and do not make a hopeless mess out of everything they touch.
    His pain killer addiction while an interesting aside does not explain the heroes inability to do anything right. And I mean anything.
    Superman surrounded by a mountain of kryptonite would have been in better shape than Mr Gentry.

    I would pass.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    Story
    "The impossible becomes possible."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have made less mistakes by the villain in the story and by the hero. Some of the trouble that Court Gentry gets into is too apparent, for the author. It is a good follow up to the first book, however, there were just some short comings for me.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Thought provoking, yet there were annoying questions that weren't answered. Obviously it forces you to want to read the next books looking for answers... like what did Court do that got him burned, and he becomes this lone wolf.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Saving the lady in distress at the airport customs.


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

    Well, duh.. there are already 4.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good series if you aren't faint of heart for violence.

    "Kind of Confusing"

    Unlike the first novel of the series, this one took place entirely in the Middle East. There is more action in the story with secondary characters than with the Gray Man. I guess I am not into this kind of book, but I did listen to the whole thing, and then bought the third novel in the series.

    "Poorly written, well read"

    The author seems to search for words and phrases to use descriptively, but chooses cliché time and time again. Hopefully the writing improves with time.

    "Hopping book 3 would be better..."
    What did you like best about On Target? What did you like least?

    still action packed story. Least part of the the book was story.


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed with book two (On Target). I enjoyed book one very much and wanted to continue but this story line was week. It appeared author wanted just to release this book fast. When the mission goes bad usually its because of unforeseen circumstances not intentionally making bad decisions. For Gray Man type assassin it is hard to believe his caliber of character would make this type of mistakes. Overall I still enjoyed the book and looking forward for the next story.

    "Very disappointing"

    This series feels like it could be so good, but it just misses. The dialogue between characters - particularly between good guy and bad guy, or during or just before battle - is terrible.

    Also, the Gray Man makes certain decisions that just make no sense - one such decision caused me to actually stopped reading with about an hour left of this book, which I NEVER do. It was so ridiculous, that about only an hour to do go, I just gave up on the book completely.

    For books that are similar but actually work and make sense, read the Mitch Rapp series. I was hoping this would be another series I could get into, but I'm done with it after 1.9 books.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really.I finished it hoping for some credibility somewhere. I was disappointed.


    Has On Target turned you off from other books in this genre?

    not the genre, probably the character


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

    Performance was great

    "Fantastic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've not come across the Grey Man before but this book stands well on it's own. It is fast paced and exciting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Target?

    The description of the square where the attempt to kidnap the 'target' is first rate.


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

    His voice characterisations are very good - some of the accents are a bit odd but it doesn't matter. He captures the drama and emotion of the scenes very well.


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

    I found myself rooting for the hero and wanting to tell him to be careful.


    Any additional comments?

    All round a very good story.

    "Great story terrible Irish accent in first chapters!!"

    Great story picks up well from the first novel. First few chapters were hard going due to the awful Irish accents used by the narrator......they make the efforts of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins seem like the commitments!! 😂

    But once past these it's a good read!
