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)

    "Intense and very interesting"

    When I started this book I was just looking for a new series with a solid lead character. This surpassed my expectations by far. I can't wait to read the next one.

    Story
    "A Fun Action Thriller"

    I enjoyed this book which reminded me of a James Bond type of thriller. The action scenes are excellent even though the injuries sustained by the Gray Man were a bit much to believe that he could physically continue on to the next attack. It's a fictional thriller, so why not?

    I look forward to reading the next book in the series, "On Target" published in 2010. I hope that in the next book he can develop the main character, Court Gentry, so that we can get to know him better than just a one dimensional action hero.

    The narrator, Jay Snyder, did a great job of narrating except for the voice of the little girl. I don't feel it was necessary for him to try to do a childish type of voice.

    Overall, a great action book to read.

    "Unbelievable"

    Are you kidding me? This story went so far beyond real that I was laughing through the last several chapters. I like fiction but this pushes way beyond fiction.

    "an unlikely but good story"
    Would you listen to The Gray Man again? Why?

    no. I never repeat.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loyd. He was such a cardboard and despicable villain.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    kill, kill, kill


    Any additional comments?

    The tale unfolds well through implausible situations. It's formulaic but OK.

    Story
    "Just what I was looking for"
    What made the experience of listening to The Gray Man the most enjoyable?

    Never boring. Cared about the character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I became disillusionied with Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series. As much as I like the Reacher character, I've given up on the books. Then I discovered the Gray Man! A most interesting central character with action that makes you care. You want him to win. You want him get out of the messes that come his way. Yes, the story may stretch the limits of credibility now and then...but who cares. It is entertaining as fiction. If you want an action oriented book, with a fascinating character, that won't bore you....The Gray Man is a great choice.


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

    Don't know how to answer this. Will simply say, the narration is great. Well done!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book was an overall great experience. It pulled me in and kept me with the story till the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. I listen to a lot of books, especially in the gym. This one made we want to stay on the elipitical extra minutes.

    "Riveting"

    A wonderful narrative with twists and turns. Speaks to the resiliency of the human spirit. Most memorable moment when the Grey Man meets Carol on her way to school.

    My first book by Mark Greaney, LOVE IT! Full of action, characters and storyline are clear and well developed. Engrossing! Great narrating performance by Jay Snyder in various accents and speed, perfect and clean recording as I expected for a good audiobook.

    "Like an action movie"

    And that is not a good thing. Some of the things in this book are too ridiculous to suspend my disbelief and allow me to call this great. It is good but could have been so much better.


    Voice talent was really good with all the voices and accents.
