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 never want to know how he gets out from under the dead camel in the middle of the desert (during a gun fight). There’s fiction and then there is fantasy. This writing fell over the edge into flight of the imagination.
What fascinates the listener of a Good thriller novel is the slight chance that some of the events and situations could actually (maybe) occur. Not here – no way, no how. This story shot far beyond any possibly chance of reality. Court Gentry might as well be from the planet Krypton. The only missing accessory missing is the red cape.
The author had pushed the limit with the ‘Grey Man’. ‘On Target’ goes beyond the limit, terribly.
Better than the first Gray Man novel. I went in this morning to try to find another but for now there are only the two. Excellent books but liked this one best. I am hoping there are more to come. I will definitely buy another Gray Man novel. The narrator is good also. The author needs to continue with this narrator, the reading is very well done. I will definitely buy the next one and hope there is a next one, if it's a dud, I may stop there but hoping there are more with good plots such as these. I also appreciate the length of a book. Detail is most important in mystery thrillers. I hate short books and will never ever buy an abridged version of a book. Abridged versions are for those with the attention span of a 3rd grader.
Very interesting book with very interesting hero. I may not describe the book, how i feel about it, in short words i really enjoyed this book and strongly recommend this to people.
Grey Man was a wild ride that kept me turning the pages and holding my breath. In this one, the Grey Man makes bizarre decisions that completely shatter the willing suspension of disbelief. His supporting protagonist female character is shallow and completely unbelievable, and Jay Snyder reads her in a voice of 10 year old girl which actually fits the character quite well further adding to the disjointed and amateurish feel of the book. Instead of deepening and developing the characters, they become shallow and unbelievable. I'm really disappointed as I counted the days until the next Grey Man novel.
I've enoyed all of the "Gray Man" books. They follow Court Gentry (the Gray Man), a former CIA assassin who makes money using his former CIA skills. They are all fast paced, not hard to follow, great listens.
The amount of detailed story telling is never lost among all the action in this book. It is well crafted and very enjoyable. The story is exciting and it's really hard to break away from it.
I enjoyed the dialog between all the players, it's intelligent and cunning.
Jay Snider is by far my favorite narrator. He's been perfect in every book I've head, and this one is no different.
This book ties in perfectly with the first one, I like it when the stories and characters are linked to the first book (and previous mentioned experiences) it adds volumes of depth to both the story and the characters.
This novel was a great follow up to The Gray Man. Everything you loved about this first novel is here in this one, with a little somthing extra. Court Gentry is definitely one of my favorite characters. I can't get enough of this guy. This story opens up with just enough talk to set up Gentry's mission, and then the action takes off running and it doesn't stop until it's over. I'm moving on to the next Court Gentry novel. I just wish this series could go on and on.
