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.

"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)
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.
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.
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.
No, not if his other books are as absurd as this one.
Jay Snyder is an excellent narrator. Too bad he was given such bad material.
Wore out my eye muscles rolling my eyes so much.
The Gray Man is nonstop action.
The Gray Man
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!
Story was very engaging. The hero is injured and we are left feeling his limitations and pain. Looking forward to trying more novels by both the author and narrator.
Narrator seemed to have trouble with accents. The story was okay and the main character went through a lot of challenges that were good, but hard to believe one man could survive so much. The main character was likeable abd I found myself rooting for him, but it was somewhat hats to push through on the storytelling.
yes. good characters, great reader, great pace of story.
looking forward to next book in the series
Pike Logan series. similar type of character development and insight into story and the back story
grey man - cort
he always gets the job done - no matter what.
glad I found this series
Fun, fast story with action galore. Gray Man's the kind of noble/flawed character a reader can really root for, a la Jack Reacher or Harry Bosch. The over-the-top or incredible scene (or two) couldn't disrupt story. Oh yeah, and Jay Snyder can really act! Thank ya, thank ya!
