After five years on the run, Court Gentry is back on the inside at the CIA. But his first mission makes him wish he had stayed on the outs when a pair of Chinese agents try to take him down in Hong Kong. Normally the Chinese prefer to stay eyes-only on foreign agents. So why are they on such high alert? Court's high stakes hunt for answers takes him across Southeast Asia and leads to his old friend, Donald Fitzroy, who is being held hostage by the Chinese.

Great story as should be expected and I truly hope that the next story has the Banshee in it with the Grey Man, now that would be fun to listen to!!!
Anyone that reads the Grey Man series knows that every book is a good read and this one is certainly no exception.

This book was excellent the development of the characters was well done and of course Mr. Pierce had everything to do with its success. I enjoyed the entire book and wish there would be a part 2 but I don't see that happening with the way it ended.
I recommend the book you won't be disappointed.

I listened to 1/3 of it had to force myself to, hoping for it to improve however it didn't the story line is weak and the narration poor as far as I'm concerned, others may not agree but I deleted it from my Sandisk and probably won't be going back to down load it to try again any time soon. I've read other works by the author A. American so figured this would be at the same level but for whatever reason, not even close.

Narrator is not right for the book and fails to convey excitement and drawing the listening person into the story. Also an author that doesn't know weapons and what the parts are called makes the story disappointing at some level. You'll need to input magazine for every clip remark by the characters, which is often. It'd been an alright book with a good narrator. As it is the story is fine enough and not necessarily a loss.

What a wonderful book and story, as always Mr. Goodwin writes a book that is enthralling, moving, interesting and a great way to remind fellow Christians to have faith. This is going to be another wonderful series and will help us put a handle on what's to come at least more or less.
I highly recommend it, it will not disappoint, from beginning to end you will not want to put it down. Can't wait, really I can't wait hurry up Mr. Goodwin get the next book out I really want to see what happens next.

Bronson Pinchot should only read romantic novels, his voice, his inflections, his portrayals of characters doesn't come even close to the characters that he's trying to create. Narrators such as Joe Barrett, Kevin Pierce and Joseph Morton should have been considered for the job.
But over all the story is pretty good and glad to have heard it.

Terrorists have infiltrated the United States and attacked the electrical grid, pummeling the entire country into darkness and creating a crisis never before seen on American soil. This orchestrated act of terrorism has left Americans vulnerable in all essential areas of health, welfare, national security, communication, and commerce. This catastrophic chain of events has led to the United States government enacting martial law to control the violence and looting.

fist off to the author a clip is for reloading a magazine one does not install a clip on a rifle or pistol
the story obviously was written by someone who is not a prepper nor a shooter even a bow and arrow I'd guess
the story was alright the characters where more or less developed for the listener but I do not recommend this

these characters attitudes towards others in their group and family for that matter and their willingness to kill and torture in some very gruesome ways that no one with any humanity in them would ever do, this is part of the book that I am disappointed in, also their language is terrible where one minute they're cursing in Our Lords name then saying grace before a meal the author really missed it on this point. I for one would never be in a prepper group like this, I'd rather take my chances being alone.

The story is good, the characters are well developed and the narrator is pretty good but some of the violence towards so called captives and their torture is well beyond human, any person that has any heart would not do what these characters do to their victims. Through most of the story the two main characters are died in the wool a--holes I would NEVER want to be in their group of survivors. They go well beyond acceptable and the author just in my view got way to carried away with attitude.
