The Gray Man | [Mark Greaney]

The Gray Man

Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

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.

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 frist book."

    I enjoyed this book. It was a little different from what you usually find in this genre, but kept to much of the basic formula as well. Great first book. The other books in the series were not quite as good, but still entertaining.

    "Not my usual kind of book"

    This was like a Bourne adventure, and I don't even remember buying it! But I must say that I couldn't stop listening to it once I started. I even went and bought the next two in the series!

    "Great!"

    The only warning I would give is to make sure, before you start this book, that you have 11 hours of listening time available because once you start it you won't want to stop.

    "Gripping, fast-moving"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It kept me entertained and gripped for 2 days and I couldn't wait to get my headset on and into the car. The plot was fast moving albeit a bit far-fetched in certain places. I overlooked those details because of the sheer pace of the story. Brilliantly narrated, although the accents were not that good.

    "Awesome!"

    A spectacular novel about an agent turned to contract assassin! the audio book is a treat to get lost in the book for hours together! The author and the reader did a great job of describing Europe beautifully!
    i loved it and could relate the stories to what i used to read in other languages growing up in India! This will make a good action movie!

    "Fantastic Read:: Small Spoilers if you Read this."

    I very much enjoyed this book, the Action was Great and Ongoing. The Main Character the Grey Man, I found very realistic also the Narration was Excellent. I will be looking forward very much to the next book from Mark Greaney.

    But, I did not Enjoy the End, I did not like the Way it all Wound Up, it was too unbelievable too much Blood Loss too Many Injuries, Caused a Lack of Action at the End just when the Most Action was needed. I am not a writer at all, I just thought it Fell Away at the End.

    "A borderline 2 star"

    I liked the character. The story had a lot of potential. It's a shame. Why did the guy have to be half dead through half the book - Performing miracales. There's story lines so impossible it can't be true - And then there's this. It could have been the same story - With the guy just kicking butt. If the Gray man got hurt anymore - He would have been sewing on his own head. That's my take.

    "Lots of action, hard to believe"

    This book has non- stop action. However, the further the story line develops, the less believable it becomes. There are too many impossible close escapes and too many wounds that build up to make the hero believable.
