Get ready for white-knuckled listening. Greaney's debut novel - and future feature film - introduces the enigmatic and elusive Court Gentry, a former CIA operative and a legendary hired gun. With a terrifying ability to vaporize targets and a strict moral code, he stalks the gray margins of the world, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, then fading away. When his government and former employers turn on him, there is no safehouse to run to, no way to lie low. In a constant state of escape and pursuit, Gentry tears through the Middle East and Europe in a riveting life-or-death race against time.
Fast-paced, well-researched, and fun, The Gray Man is already being adapted for a movie by the company behind Tom Cruise's Knight & Day.

"Through the carnage, Gentry remains an intriguing protagonist with his own moral code. Comparisons will be made to Jason Bourne, but the Gray Man is his own character. The ending screams for a sequel, but it will be difficult to maintain the intensity level of this impressive debut." (Booklist)
"Hard, fast, and unflinching – exactly what a thriller should be." (Lee Child)
"Bourne for the new millennium." (James Rollins)
I have been following Mr. Greaney's writing since he took over for Tom Clancy after Mr Clancy's death. I've enjoyed seeing his growth as a writer and it prompted me to buy one of his own books. Sadly this is not up to the same level of writing. There are more than a few plot holes with unexplained or inexplicable character knowledge. I didn't hate it, but I am not sure if I will continue to read the series. It doesn't help that the reading is not the best.
Dear Jay Snyder,
Please learn the difference between reading a novel and reading narration. You read like you are narrating a bad Nat-Geo show. Hilarious! I laughed through this audiobook.
While I usually get tired of heroes being able to do anything no matter how absurd, that fact doesn't distract from the enjoyment of listening to this book. The main character is likable enough that you want him to do well. This is the third book in a row for me about the Gray Man if that tells you anything!
It is well written and well narrated but the story is a little too far fetched.
I will try another one because the books seem popular and perhaps the story lines become more realistic
The narrator was good.
I hope the next one is.
Tell us about yourself! I am a 69 yr old female. I love books but due to vision limits I now actually don't read much unless I can get large print. I enjoy books that give me a good story line and move forward at a good pace.
I love it, enjoy Audible books. There is a very good selection. keep them coming
