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)
Listened to the first 5 minutes, became addicted, downloaded the other three books and listened to them with every free minute. What ever you do Mr. Greaney, don't let Tom Cruise near the movie.
I could hardly tear myself away from this book and didn't care that the plot was like a kiddie pool. Action packed and exciting from start to finish. Love the narration.
Loved it! Very fast paced and intriguing! I am definitely finishing the series! The narration was excellent! Did an excellent job with different accents:)
The narrator was excellent but,the book was a " Bourne Identity" wannabe. alot of action and violence but still boring and long. its like the author had a really good hero but didn't know what to do with him. I was disappointed.
The narration was the BEST I've heard in an audiobook to date. A fantastic story and well-developed characters made this book fly by, and my driving time do the same!
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
I listened to this book as I was driving. At one point, I realized I was clutching my steering wheel and intently driving down the road. What a fabulous entertainment experience. And I love the narrator. I am glad there are more Gray man books to hear!!!!
A Marvel Superhero fan.
No, not really. Vince Flynn and Lee Child write with a plot and some degree of reality.
It's OK, he did his best with the material.
All of them.
A near death experience on every page, just not for me.
Author has no ability to tell a story, so he makes up unblieveable action adventures for the main character. More suited for comic book fans.
If I hadn't listened to it all, I would return. Still might, fuming over the absurdity of the whole thing.
