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.

    Story
    "Grey Man should be called Idiot Man"
    What did you like best about On Target? What did you like least?

    The concept was good, the story was good.


    What could Mark Greaney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Greany made the Grey Man an idiot. for an experienced assassin the Grey Man was stupid about antibiotics, tapped phones, tracking phones and people. Then to make it even more unbelievable he throws in Grey Man on drugs. How totally stupid!


    Was On Target worth the listening time?

    No skip this one. It will not impact you if you are reading all three Grey Man novels. this is a better door stop.

    Story
    "Awesome Non-Stop Thriller!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Target to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book, only listened to it, but I would think it would have to be simply because of the way that the reader (Jay Snider) masterfully weaves the story, plays each character, and delivers an amazing story with perfect timing!


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

    Books in the Jack Reacher series, the Nathan McBride Series, and Cam Richter series are all in the same class in my opinion.


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

    Court Gentry, the main man in the story for sure. He is awesome, I wish he was a real person so I could meet the guy!


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

    Yes, near the end when Court has to deal with the dictator, and someone else gets involved that has different plans. I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil things.


    Any additional comments?

    This entire series is great, the narrator is awesome, it's a fun ride through and through.

    Story
    "Great Story, Mediocre Narration"
    Where does On Target rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up at the top. The story telling is top notch, up there with the Jack Reacher Books and Bond and Bourne Books. However, the narration is squeaky and annoying at points just because of the guys voice. That is my only complaint. The author did a fine job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main Character the Gray Man.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He has squeaky parts that come up all the time in his narration that make it very difficult to listen to. I am vastly surprised that Audible actually let this pass in a book so good. Anyone else would have been a good narrator. This one was sub par at best. However, the story is good enough to suffer through the parts.


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

    N/a


    Any additional comments?

    Narrators voice was annoying on some syllables making it very difficult to listen to. I would be quality checking that before releasing a good book such as this from now on.

    "Book 2 is not always the next best thing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The performance was wonderful. Book two Sid not make me rush to buy the third book like gray man made me immediately purchase book two.


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

    No.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    He makes me believe I'm really listening to court gentry.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I love court.

    "Good But Not Great"

    The Gray Man is my kind of character... he is a lot like an updated version of Rambo. I love the idea of these books, but there is something lacking. The action is good, and the general plot is good. But not great. The Gray Man makes some decisions throughout the book that left me scratching my head.

    If you like action novels, this is a decent read and will keep you entertained.

    Great audiobook! Great story, I can see why Clancy co-writes with Mark Greany! Couldn't wait to see where Greany goes with the next one in this series!

    "Disappointed in story line"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to a friend as it was a slow read and less than thrilling to listen to. I love spy stories but this dragged on and on and took a long time to get to the point.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have had more action and less detailed description of guns and equipment.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The reader was not one of my favorites to listen to.


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

    I will not be getting more of this author's books unless he changes the way he writes so writing a follow-up would not be good unless he includes more action and less descriptive equipment details.
