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)

    "Didn't make it past the first 6 minutes"
    Any additional comments?

    I didn't get far into this book. I found the offensive language to be unnecessary. In the first six minutes there were 3 f***, a sh**head and a sh**storm. It isn't that I am opposed the use of these words in books, it just seemed over the top and unnecessary this early in the context of the story. It may be a very good book -- I just didn't make it past the first six minutes. There are other books for me to spend my time with.

    Story
    "Lots of Action but the Plot is Full of Holes"
    Would you try another book from Mark Greaney and/or Jay Snyder?

    This book has lots of action but the plot is so improbable that it spoiled it for me. The plot has many twists but was so unrealistic that I had trouble taking it seriously. Also, the ending is pretty obvious.

    Story
    "See Court run... Run Court run"

    I was expecting more than a 10 hour reading of a pre-teen comic book with comic book characters.

    1 - Run
    2 - Fight
    3 - Take a hit
    4 - Kill 'em
    5 - Recover
    6 - Go to 1 (infinity)

    I stuck through the entire book waiting to see if it ever had any twist, suspense, character development, or plot. It didn't.

    Story
    "Absolutely Terrific"
    If you could sum up The Gray Man in three words, what would they be?

    The hype is true, this is 'The Bourne for the 2000's. Read it, listen to it.


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

    Without a doubt


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several. It's tough to rank them.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read and listened to all the Grey Man novels. I highly recommend that others do to.

    "Macho man story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really...a bit far fetched and simplistic. If one guy could do it all...it is the Gray man. A bit overdone for me and I like action books.

    Story
    "The Gray Man Kicks Ass!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I offer my highest recommendation of Mark Greaney's, The Gray Man. Our hero is one busy guy. I loved the brisk pace of the book and the shrewdness of Court Gentry. His world is intense and you're gonna cheer for him, big time.


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

    The Gray Man is a bit like Joe Pike on full auto.


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

    The Gray Man of course is my favorite character because of his attitude, created quite effectively by Jay Snyder.


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

    In the book there ware a few times I chuckled, other times I winced; and yes, Court's nobility and fierceness make him a worthy hero.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading this first introduction to a great character I was hooked. I've read the first three and am about to order the fourth. Buy this book.

    Story
    "Aggravating and lame"
    Would you try another book from Mark Greaney and/or Jay Snyder?

    No.


    What could Mark Greaney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the protagonist even remotely logical.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Tone down the hard boiled speech. Talking like a real person is more compelling.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Constant frustration with the protagonist and disappointment in the narrative.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know how this story has received so many positive reviews. That character is completely unbelievable as a world renown assassin, At every turn he makes the worst decision possible and never makes a strategic or tactical choice that makes sense. Gentry is a laughable badass who drops trite one-liners. The worst book I've listened to on audible.
