Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

Started with the first. And was thinking this series was just so-so. Especially after the bad Mexico story. But this is redemption and easily the best so far

It's been a while since we first met Lee Child's Jack Reacher in Killing Floor. Fifteen years and sixteen novels later, Reacher still lives off the grid, until trouble finds him, and then he does whatever it takes, much to the delight of listeners and the dismay of villains. Now someone big is looking for him. Who? And why? Hunting Jack Reacher is a dangerous business, as FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are about to find out.

Good premise but the story and narration were next to terrible. I can’t believe the narration could be this bad. I sweared upon listening to the first few chapters that it was computer generated

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Alex is running out of original ideas; this is 2 mini worthless unrelated stories combined into 1 book. Really no excitement; no thrill; no ride to go on ... I was very disappointed.

I really like the bosch character and thought I would give this one a try. I just don't think that it was up to par or that rivoting, ok story with very little suspense, you could figure out what was going to happen way before the story got there.

Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

I have listened to and enjoyed davinci and demons, both were very good stories, I don't know if it is the back drop of NASA and politics, but I am about 3/4 through and can't seem to finish it ... very predictable and not interesting, at least compared to the others ...
