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)

    "Terrible"

    What a great waste of time. The characters had no depth, the story was boring and the simplicity of the story was suitable for a 1st grader and not an adult. Finally, the narration was, at best, mediocre.

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

    The choice of vocabulary was very poor. One would think that a professional writer could do much better.


    Any additional comments?

    This the first book from Audible that I have purchased that I wish I could return. Normally their book library is very good.

    Story
    "Even James Bond would have a hard time believing this story."

    "If it wasn't for bad luck, the Gray Man wouldn't have any luck at all"

    Mr. Greaney has created a character who succeeds even though he has been shot, knifed, survived an explosion, cut his feet, lost half his blood, while evading or killing close to 100 trained assassins.

    The author could have made the story more plausible if the hero didn't try to storm a fortified castle while bleeding out.

    "Enjoyable Borne-type action Novel!"

    Fast paced thriller/action story about professional killer for hire. Some aspects of the story are a bit 'superhuman,' but all in all still a fun read.

    "Pure Entertainment"

    Look, it's not gonna change your life, but it's a whole lot of fun. The bad guys are really bad. The odds are extremely long, and our hero kicks some major butt. Can't wait to start on the next in this series!

    "Poor first book but hang in there"

    I can see why the reviews are not so good for this first book.Glad I started with the second. If I did know better would have wondered if the book was a parody . Cort just sustained too many injuries to be believable. Greaney got better and better with this series so would advise starting with On Target then go back later to The Gray Man. It is not necessary for the subsequent storyline.

    "Loved it"

    So glad that I found this series. Quality writing is so scarce nowadays. While waiting for the next "Cleaner" book to be released in audio, the Gray Man will keep me from trolling the boards hoping to stumble upon a better-than-ok thriller.
