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)
Good story. It keeps you listening. Mark Greaney came through on this book. The Gray Man finally shows some personality.
The tremendous storytelling ability of Mark Greaney.
This book matches most of the Baldacci series for storytelling and suspense.
The performance would be enhanced if a female did the female characters.
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.
The reader is excellent - brought real life to each character he narrates.
No - not even if it was free to get in and someone drove me there and back.
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!
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.
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.
Saving the lady in distress at the airport customs.
Well, duh.. there are already 4.
Its a good series if you aren't faint of heart for violence.
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.
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.
still action packed story. Least part of the the book was story.
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.
The story and action was amazing
The non stop action.
I liked every scene in the book
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.
Not really.I finished it hoping for some credibility somewhere. I was disappointed.
not the genre, probably the character
Performance was 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
