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)

    "The boring man"

    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.

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    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!

    "I love this kind of book!"

    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!!!!

    "More suited for comic book hero"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A Marvel Superhero fan.


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

    No, not really. Vince Flynn and Lee Child write with a plot and some degree of reality.


    What three words best describe Jay Snyder’s voice?

    It's OK, he did his best with the material.


    What character would you cut from The Gray Man?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great story with uneven narration performance"
    If you could sum up The Gray Man in three words, what would they be?

    Great espionage thriller


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the Gray Man of course...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was competent in reading and pronunciation, which may sound like it should be a given, but it isn't. I hear narrators miss pronunciations and especially phonetic pronunciations of acronyms. The narrator really struggled to emulate foreign accents. The German character sounded British with an occasional slip into a bit of a German accent. The South Africans were not even close. Not even sure what they sounded like, but I know it didn't sound like the British-influenced dialect of the various South African nationals I went to college with. The only accents that were spot on were the British and American characters. The Belarusian sniper was fairly close.


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

    It didn't make me laugh or cry and I wish Audible would remove this question. The genres I read don't typically evoke this type of reaction and better and more relevant questions could be asked.


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully Jay Snyder's narration will improve in subsequent books as I noted he is the narrator for the entire Gray Man series by Mark Greany to which I plan to listen.

    Own a small business and travel about 50,000 miles a year. Spend most of that time listening to Reacher, Scully, Colt Gentry, Bosch, etc...

    "Best action book ever!"

    Wonderfully written and performed. He should write more often than he does.
    Even the hard to believe parts seems so tense.

    Again, another exciting story line that kept me deeply engaged. So many familiar places, including small towns in Switzerland. Very vivid. Simply thrilling.
