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)

    "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.

    "More like Dead Man Walking"

    Not terrible. But there is no way anyone could survive everything that happened to The Gray Man. Much less continue with his mission. I love a good thriller. But this verged into the absurd after a while.

    "Loved it. Definitely the new Bourne"

    Not much more to say. I've read the last & now the first & I have books 2 & 3 of the series down loaded & ready to go. Mark Greaney you'd better hurry up with book 5 ready ASAP. Or if it's already written audible needs to move it along.

    Story
    "Beyond ridiculous"
    What would have made The Gray Man better?

    I get it, intrigue novels are supposed to be about people escaping crazy situations but one man escaping 12 TEAMS of special forces type assassins is absurd. The car ride with the veterinary nurse was the last straw for me. There's lots of action so if that's your primary draw to a book you will love this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Greaney again?

    No, not if his other books are as absurd as this one.


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

    Jay Snyder is an excellent narrator. Too bad he was given such bad material.


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

    Wore out my eye muscles rolling my eyes so much.

    What did you love best about The Gray Man?

    The Gray Man is nonstop action.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Gray Man


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Favorite scene was in the beginning when Gentry offed the extremist who was about to behead a US solder.

    Sure if you can take the stress!
