Publisher's Summary

Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest. But his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Court makes his way to one of the only men in the world he can trust - and arrives too late. His friend is dead and buried.

Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted. But in this war, there are no sides - only survivors....

Listen to another Gray Man novel.

    "First 2 were better."

    Hoping the next in the series is better than this one. Still okay. Not great like the first novel.

    Another fine performance by Greaney and the Grey Man. Believeable and exciting to follow. The narrator is great here and really enhances the story.

    Story
    "Another winner!"

    Well, Greaney has done it again. This time, his hero, Court Gentry, ends up in Mexico, where we discover the appalling corruption going on there. And, once again, poor Court is being hunted ??? this time by multiple entities wanting him dead. As in "The Gray Man," and "On Target," Greaney puts his protagonist in an impossible situation, out of which Court must extricate himself at enormous personal sacrifice. Because Mark is super-human, he manages to save himself and almost all the good guys, while eliminating all the bad guys. But we can't help but wonder how much longer Court can continue taking all this physical abuse. If you haven't yet listened to the previous two novels, I would recommend listening to them first. Each one of them can stand alone, if necessary; but they refer to previous events, so that you will enjoy each one more fully if you listen to them in order. The reader, Jay Snyder, does a truly professional, excellent job of performing all the characters. I recommend this audiobook unconditionally to all thriller-lovers.

    All I can say is that I love this series. Greeley obviously does his homework and research. It is very entertaining and difficult to put down. It's well worh the credit.

    "Do You LIke Cotton Candy?"

    This is the kind of book that makes you question whether reading fiction is a valuable use of time. I'm all for escapism, but this is about 85% the Gray Man escaping from situations that no one could possibly escape from. Once or twice a book, that's OK, I can suspend disbelief. But 85%?

    To much hard to believe action, not enough substance. Pretty much cotton candy.

    I have narrow genre interests and mostly gravitate to thrillers. Mostly espionage & crime thrillers. Flynn, Clancy, Connelly, Thor, Baldacci

    "Suspend disbelief"

    One really must suspend disbelief to enjoy this third installment of the Gray Man series. This installment was not up to the previous two in terms of suspense and action. The climax was a disappointment and some issues with main characters were left unresolved. It seems as though the author tried to take a character that lived in an world of espionage and places him in a Jack Reacher-esque drifter in the middle of a Mexican cartel battle. The antagonist is poorly executed, an American-trained elite Mexican soldier that becomes a drug lorg who worships Santa Muerte, a folk idol from which he takes his orders and obsessions. It's as if he is mad, but other than the worship of this idol and the obsessions he takes from it, he is otherwise ruthless and calculating with little sense of an unbalanced individual, a poorly developed character in that regard. The insertion of the CIA role in this book is awkward and does little more than keep Gentry's connection to the CIA in the reader's mind for future books perhaps.

    I hope the next book is less mysterious drifter who defends the family in trouble and more dark spy-assassin. Otherwise, I will move on.

    "standard grey man novel"

    I like the grey man so this is a good thing. but the stories are repetitive. the detail of the gun fights is sleep inducing.
