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.

    What did you love best about On Target?

    I love that he is human, fallible, and not perfect. He screws up and pays for it. He make emotional decisions even if they are not the best tactically.


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

    The escape from the casa grande was great.


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

    He lends a believable voice to The main character and good accents to other characters. The voices are distinct enough to make it easy to follow.


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

    Yes

    Story
    "Much better than the first one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Target to be better than the print version?

    Don't know, I've never read the print version of this book


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

    The part where the squad leader had to kill his own man to save him from torture


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    I like the fact that jay can put all the proper emotion into each scenario without going to a whisper that I can't hear when I'm driving, as some other narrators do, he has a gift for remaining clearly audible throughout the story and conveying the secrecy of a situation without dropping below audible level. bravo jay!!! Well done!


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

    No, I enjoyed every moment of this story


    Any additional comments?

    I will definately pay a lot more attention to who is narrating a title before I purchase it

    "Good, but has Gray Man has gotten a bit stupid?"
    If you could sum up On Target in three words, what would they be?

    Action packed thriller.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator. I really like his Gray Man voice.


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

    Yes, I didn't listen to it all in one sitting, but would have liked to. Good suspense!


    Any additional comments?

    I'll try not to give spoilers... The 'girl & the airport' was fine, but the end of the 'airport incident' and the turn the story took there went too far outside the realm of believable, for me. Greaney did a good job of making me dislike 'the annoying, stupid airport girl'. I wonder if that was intentional? Compared with Book 1, Gray Man himself just seemed to have gone a bit 'stupid', making mistake after mistake (many not even connected with his painkillers). Even though I didn't like it as much as Book 1, I still enjoyed it and I'm on to Book 3 next.

    Story
    "Best Gray Man Yet"
    Where does On Target rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top 10


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Gray Man - Court Gentry becomes more human and really fleshes out as a character in this book. He is the best "door kicker" there is, but he does have weaknesses and these weaknesses are brought to light in many different and interesting ways. For instance, as good as he is in battle and with a gun, he isn't that great of a driver. He is constantly frustrated by the people around him in part because they are emotional wrecks and in part because he isn't the best at dealing with ordinary people.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    DLR the villian was performed to perfection. He really seems to be an inspired character. I wouldn't be surprised if he's modeled after a real life drug king pin.


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

    When Court manages to come back and save what remains of the Gonzales family from certain death. They thought he abandoned them, but he didn't. It was a pure suicide mission to come back.

    It was also moving in another way when we learn of Jerry Flaiger's double crossing. You are absolutely outraged at the little worm.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome book, too bad there isn't another one to read at this point in time. I'm dying to learn more about why the CIA wanted Court Gentry dead in the first place. After three books we still don't know much about this. Greaney has left a lot of people the Gray Man needs to settle up with and plenty of intrigue for his next book. Possibilities abound, a Russian mafia boss, A CIA boss who ordered him killed, and Court picked up a new powerful enemy in Mexico. At least Court is in decent physical shape at the end of this book, albeit scapes, bruises, and electrical burns (did I miss anything? probably).

    Great Book I'm looking forward to more!

    "Disappointing"

    After the first book in this series, which I rated 5 stars, this one was a disappointment.
    The main character, the best assassin in the world, is portrayed as pretty much unstable, gullible, inconsistent, undisciplined, emotional, not at all the strong man he was in the first book.
    The plot is thin, the supporting characters are flat and cliched.
    The performance was overly dramatic for my taste.
    There is enough good and detailed action to keep you reading the whole book but it was a struggle to get through and at the end it seemed like pretty much a waste of time.
    Sophomore slump maybe, I will read the next in the series but keep it on a real short leash.

    "Lived up to expectations"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Target to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version of this book. Audio books appeal to me more than print books because they allow me to do other things whilst listening to the story. I'm not restricted to sitting in a chair.


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

    The way Gentry used the contents of the trucks he was travelling in to build a bomb and create enough confusion to escape execution was the most memorable scene in this audio book.


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

    I really enjoy Jay's reading style. The voices he creates for each character assists to create an image of that person in my mind that fits well with the characteristics of the character. I can imagine the image of a character doing the things they do. It's not a mismatch. I think this performance is as good as any other he has done that I have listened to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An action pacted covert adventure from start to finish, On Target will keep you enguaged through to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are interested in easy to listen to action packed adventures this is your book. Not too many characters to remember and a very uncomplicated story makes this a very enjoyable story.

    "Not a fan."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Greaney? Why or why not?

    This is my second Greaney book. First being the Grey Man.Didn't like either of them. Problem is the character Court is not likable. Story is fairly mundane. Not much suspense and the climax and ending seem flat.

    "Avoid if you think women are actually sensible"

    The story itself wasn't half bad, but I expected better out of the Gray Man, the way he was acting in this story leads me to wonder how he has survived this far. The female character was just down right stupid, I kept hoping she would be killed off and put us all out of our misery. I hope these are not the kind of women in the authors life, if so he has my deepest sympathy. I will read one more novel by him and if there is no improvement will cease to read the series.

    "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.
