The Gray Man | [Mark Greaney]

The Gray Man

Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "My new favorite author!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is exciting from beginning to end!! I found myself taking the long way home because I didn't want to stop listening. What a riveting new character!


    What other book might you compare The Gray Man to and why?

    I think I would compare it to the David Baldacci series with the "Shaw" character or the Mitch Rapp books. The badazz hit man that you root for.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to name just one and as I write this review I'm not even finished the book. But so far my favorite is the scene where the guys came to his "hideaway" to kill him and he blew the place up. Awesome!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I think the famous Omar quote from "The Wire" sums it up perfectly: "If you come at the King, you best not miss"


    Any additional comments?

    This author is up there with the greats: James Patterson, John Sanford, Vince Flynn. I can't say enough good things about this book. And let's not forget Jay Snyder. He was PHENOMENAL. I enjoyed every word that came out of his mouth. Not since Frank Mueller have I been this impressed with a narrator.

    "Relief to find a new series to follow!"
    If you could sum up The Gray Man in three words, what would they be?

    Unstoppable, never quits


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gray Man?

    There was never really a dull moment, the whole book was memorable.


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does voices very well and made the listen interesting!


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

    No extreme reaction, Very good book but I don't think guys are going to listen to an action book and start crying, LOL.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was definitely one of my favorite books and I have listened to MANY books.

    "I know it's not supposed to be great lit but..."
    What was most disappointing about Mark Greaney’s story?

    I got this for travel time listening and expected a good page turning story that stretches credibility-but not this much. It was mostly predictable and then at the end of the day the plot turns were so unbelievable that I lost all interest. The narrator wasn't bad-not a standout but he certainly didn't get in the way. For the same general idea but better executed go for a Mitch Rapp story instead.

    "Always in the shadows"
    What made the experience of listening to The Gray Man the most enjoyable?

    Good storyline with good character development which engages the reader/listener. The tempo made the listening easy going and easy to follow. The nature of the action and background flowed really well and the backstory was just as intriguing as the current plot line.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes even though I knew or thought I knew the ultimate outcome of this book because I knew there were more books with the same character published. The action was fact paced and concise in area in which it needed to be and when there was an area in which the author could spend his time creating a overall "battle" scene it is was a good listen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Are you a good guy Jim? I am good guy who was taught how to do bad things to bad guys.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I spent several hours just sitting and listening to this book and look forward to the next book in the series.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The Gray Man is so much like characters in Robert Ludlow's books. Tha action never stops!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gray Man?

    Loved the relationships that the Gray Man had. Although he is a "tough " guy, he does have principles and cares about innocent people.


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

    The Gray Man


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this I immediately downloaded the sequel.

    "Unengaging"
    What would have made The Gray Man better?

    More development of story. Some personality put into the writing.


    Has The Gray Man turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely not!


    What didn’t you like about Jay Snyder’s performance?

    I do not think the narrator's performance is at fault here, it was the lack of interest-engaging writing.


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

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading much of this book, I just could not go on. It was as dry as sawdust. I do not understand how it could have inspired more books for this character. But I suppose if you just want action, nothing more, no engaging style of writing, then this book is for you.

    Would definitely recommend, fun novel


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah, the chapters were broken down and written in a way that you always wanted to listen to "just one more"

    "S&M predilection"

    Whereas this storyline was somewhat gripping, and you certainly do tend to relate to the protagonist, but unfortunately there is only so much physical damage you can do to your main character without coming off like a 12 year old who likes to pull the legs off of grasshoppers.
    I listened to the entire book up until the last 10 minutes and then quit in disgust as this author just can not seem to cease stabbing and shooting his hero until credibility is strained to the breaking point.
    No More Mark Greaney for me !!
