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.

Check out the latest Gray Man novel, On Target, now.

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)

    "I really enjoyed this story"

    From start to finish this one held my mind focused on every word. I felt my jaw clinch and abs tighrened during many of the action scenes and I shivered with the thoughts of pain when the damage to his body was explained. I have found a character writer that I want to follow I cannot wait to start the next book in the series!

    Story
    "Some distracting audio tone changes"

    Story was quite straight forward beat-him-up-but-he-stands, but nicely written. The tone of the narration chanhed a bit sometimes on the latter half of the book, distracting the immersion a bit.

    "Great Novel - even better narrating!"

    I listened to the most recent of the gray man series, and had to go back and find the original! The story is action packed, like all Greaney novels I've read, and that lends itself well to the narration of Snyder. Some parts gave me the chills! Recommend to anyone that likes spy thriller or related genre.

    "Action packed"

    One thing I can say is the Gray Man can not only dish it out but he can also take it. Action packed and fast paced, this is my kind of novel.Whew! Watch out Mitch Rapp.

    "GREAT fun, though a little unbelievable"

    I loved this book, & I was sorry when it ended. But the last few chapters were a bit too unbelievable. Even for someone who loved the book.

    Story
    "Incredibly Disappointing"
    What did you like best about The Gray Man? What did you like least?

    I've hear fairytales that were more credible than this story. I've worked in Intel and this story is implausible, unbelievable and, the really sad part, is that with a few touches of reality, it could have been so much better. Kudos for having properly researched the hardware, but review a few medical texts. If this was reality, he'd have been dead several times. The thin plot carried him from one unrealistic bloodbath to the next.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Greaney again?

    I enjoy Mark's work on the Tom Clancy novels. While certainly not of the same caliber as Tom, the work is respectably close.


    Did Jay Snyder do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The character differentiation was good, but I suggest Jay do a little more research on how to pronounce certain foreign words and names of firearms. I cringed at some of the more obvious ones. Other than that, he was clear and easy to understand.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I realize this is the first book in the series. I intend to listen to another to see if it improves.

    "great story, well read"

    definitely an engaging storyline, that I didn't want to stop listening to. The reader does a great job differentiating characters.

    Story
    "Almost continuous action"

    Mr. Greaney writes a good story. This entry novel is continuously action packed. Maybe a bit too action packed. Gray Man is a bit unrealistic but so is Jason Bourne.
    The story is well written. It has a theme, and a plot. It flows well and keeps you interested. The writing is a bit gratuitous and specific on gory details but this is about an assassin.
    I read more than two novels per month and I will add the "Gray Man" series to my reading list. It is not the best "dark ops" series I read but I enjoyed the character and will read more.
    Good job Mr. Greaney.
