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)
As a retired military dealing with special operations I found this story line very real and presented well.
His reading technique is well paced and well timed with the number of events taking place simultaneously.
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.
"Not as engaging as the first one"
Much slower and hard work to get through, builds up at the end.
Ok but not great
I've not come across the Grey Man before but this book stands well on it's own. It is fast paced and exciting.
The description of the square where the attempt to kidnap the 'target' is first rate.
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.
I found myself rooting for the hero and wanting to tell him to be careful.
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!
Fantastic sequel to the gray man.
Proper fast action novel.
Laughed out loud at times to the dialogue.
Action packed and entertaining. Great for the daily commute. Characters become more believable as the series progresses
"Only my second book"
I'm not a usual reader/listener but have found this book most enjoyable to listen to, very gripping just like the first book(which was my first on audible), I would recommend to anyone to try out the app
