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.

Enter the world of the Pendleton: The original owner became a recluse - and was rumored to be more than half mad - after his wife and two children were kidnapped in 1896 and never found. The second owner suffered a worse tragedy in 1935, when his house manager murdered him, his family, and the entire live-in staff.... Craftsmen and laborers working on renovations disappear or go mad.... For years, the Pendleton is a happy place, until a bad turn comes again.... Voices in unknown languages are heard in deserted rooms....

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a book that had a story that both was presented logically and a decent story

What do you think your next listen will be?

an adventure, fiction probably a koontz book

What three words best describe Peter Berkrot’s performance?

good presentation of bad story

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It can only make any other koontz book look great by comparison

Any additional comments?

of all the koontz books I've ever read or listened to ( and that's plenty) this is the only one that I ever quit on prior to completion, and the only one I would ever not recommend to others.
