Publisher's Summary

Mark Greaney, the New York Times best-selling coauthor of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, delivers another breakneck thriller following the world's deadliest assassin - the Gray Man.

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. Fitzroy was contracted to find Fan Jiang, a former member of an ultra-secret computer warfare unit responsible for testing China's own security systems. And it seems Fan may have been too good at his job - because China wants him dead. The first two kill teams Fitzroy sent to find Fan have disappeared, and the Chinese have decided to "supervise" the next operation. What they don't know is that Gentry's mission is to find Fan first and get whatever intel he has to the US. After that, all he has to do is get out alive.

    "Greaney sets the bar even higher."

    The only disappointment is when it's over. From beginning to end a thrilling ride. Long may the team of Mark Greaney, Courtland Gentry, and Jay Snyder reign. Amen

    "Great Book, Overshadowed by its Perfect Predecessor"

    I stayed up all night to finish, "Gunmetal Gray!" The story is fluid, with a heavier emphasis on action/adventure than espionage compared to the last 2 books. It is an enjoyable read, although it suffers from the fabulous success of the previous Gray Man, "Back Blast."

    Without giving away spoilers, I loved the interplay between the shadowy criminal organizations, spy services, hacking, government commandos and exotic locales. Frankly, I liked it so much that I would have enjoyed a few more hours worth of details.

    Jay Snyder did a superb job with the narration. His many voices, accents, and tones make the characters come alive. If they ever make a movie, they better dub in his voice to make sure the movie is as realistic as the book!

    P.S. Not that it matters, but "Back Blast" was the best action/adventure/espionage thriller that I've read since Ian Fleming's most outstanding achievement, "From Russia with Love." It occurred to me while writing this review that the 5th James Bond book and the 5th Gray Man book were also the best in each series. Both books were hard, if not impossible acts to follow!

    Any additional comments?

    Mark Greaney is the #1 New York Times Best-selling co-author of more than six books in the Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series and this month he released the 6th thrilling novel in his own, original, Gray Man series. If you’ve followed my blog posts over this last year you may know that I’m a big fan of Mark‘s and that I always devour his works with abandon.<br/><br/>In Gunmetal Gray, Court Gentry aka The Gray Man is back with his old employer at the Central Inteligence Agency and the action takes place right after the events of the last year’s fantastic Back Blast. Court is sent into Hong Kong in a solo mission with orders to kidnap a Chinese hacker and to rescue an old friend, but when he is recognized at the airport by Chinese operators in the intelligence Bureau all his plans are out the window and The Gray Man is on his own.<br/><br/>Without me giving anything of the plot away, I will say that although Gunmetal Gray is not quite as intense as its predecessor, Back Blast, the story is great, the action is non-stop and the Gray Man is deadlier than ever… The are guns, explosions, hand to hand combat, gadgets, boats, spies, special operators of all kinds, hackers, women whom at the same time are beautiful and deadly. There is betrayal, blackmail, murder and a lot of intelligence agencies are battleling one another, fighting to get their hands on the hacker before Court does. I loved the breakneck speed with witch events develop, I enjoyed the race from country to country, the Gray Man‘s resourcefulness to conquer any situation, the cat and mouse games and the timid love story developing between… well, I’ll let you find that out on your own.<br/><br/>This Gray Man audiobook is brought to life once again with talent and passion by the great actor and voice over artist Jay Snyder. His voice reminds me of Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series of video games, he can read, act, prelongue the tension and infuse action scenes with urgency. He even sounds good performing all the words in different asiatic languages. For Gunmetal Gray he uses lots of accents and voices, from gruff Russian for pissed off operatives, to scared Chinese henchmen, dialing it down to calm and even feminine cadences. He is perfect for this series and it’s obvious that he enjoys the role.<br/><br/>I said it lots of times and I’ll say it again Mark Greaney is one of the best thriller / espionage writers of the moment, Gunmetal Gray is intense, unputdownable and thrilling from beginning to end. I saw Mark evolve with every book and and I can’t wait for the next one in this great series! If you enjoy works by authors like Robert Ludlum, Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn you’ll love what Mark delivers with the Gray Man series.<br/><br/> Please vote Yes below if you liked this review and check out more at theAudiobookBlog dot com!<br/>Thank you,<br/>Victor

    "convincing"

    This is a more complex and fulfilled effort than the previous books. Although the use of multiple points of view is often a narratorial convenience or indulgence, it does enable Greaney in this book to complicate matters for the protagonist and justify the length of the book. It's a fun read, with lots of the drudgery of spycraft, a femme fatale, lots of shifting allegiances and the rest of the cliches of the genre assembled here in a pleasing fashion. The narrator is pretty much the right guy, though in a book this long the occasional misstep appears. The overall efect is very satisfying, but the characters are drawn from a limited pallette, and the efforts to humanize the gray man fall short of rendering him even in pastels . . .

    "A terrific entry"

    This was a very good book in the Gray Man series, although I have to agree with another reviewer that it suffers slightly from following the previous book "Back Blast", which was an absolutely marvelous nonstop thriller. I have read all the previous Gray Man books at least three times. This one will likely be no different.

    This book starts out a bit slow but kicks in about a quarter of the way through. It has some great female characters. There is a a likeable one and then there is Brewer. I didn't like her much in Book Five and she is a real witch in this one. I think Court may have to take her down a notch or two in the next book! Hightower and a couple guys from the team Sierra make another appearance and there is some understandable tension there. FitzRoy was here, too.

    The book takes us all around Asia from ritzy night clubs to rice paddies via planes, boats, and trains with an occasional helicopter ride. I couldn't quite finish it in one sitting, but I wanted to. Although it's a stand-alone, the author leaves us wanting more. I don't want to do a spoiler, but as I said, I don't think Court will stand for his having been treated badly, so I am looking forward to seeing in the next book what he will do about it. I hope it will be memorable.

    Jay Snyder is one of my favorite narrators. The man has a voice like honey and switches character voices and accents effortlessly. I could listen to him read stock inventories, phone books or the dictionary.

    "Enthralling"

    This is book six in the Gray Man series. It is important to read these books in order. Courtland Gentry is a CIA agent turned freelancer. The CIA send Gentry to Hong Kong. He is to find and bring out a Chinese Defector, Fan Jiang. Fan Jiang is a cyber warfare specialist for the Chinese Government. His parents just died in an auto accident. Now that he has no family, the cyber-unit is out to terminate him because they no longer have leverage control over him. Fan wants to go to Taiwan, but the CIA wants him, as do the Chinese, the Russians and a Vietnamese gang.

    The book is well written. Greaney co-wrote several of the Tom Clancy novels. Greaney creates an intricate plot. The story weaves in the exotic scenery of the orient. The action, excitement and tension is never ending. If you enjoy none stop action this is a book for you.

    The book is about seventeen hours long. Jay Snyder does an excellent job narrating the series. Snyder is a voice over artist and an award-winning audiobook narrator.

    "Gunmetal Gray"

    These comments are in regard to the entire series which encompasses, as of this writing, six novels. Released from 2010 through 2017 by Audible Studios and narrated by Jay Snyder. These are unabridged, full length novels, ranging in length from eleven to eighteen hours. The Gray Man is a CIA operative – deep undercover-black ops. If you are a fan of page-turning, double-taps, and splattering brain matter — well, ‘ya found a series.

    The lead character, Court Gentry, is a Jack Ryan or Mitch Rapp or James Bond or Jason Bourne… well, you get the idea. Although no explicit description is given, it wouldn’t take much to imagine him as a Type-A, patriotic, tough guy with a gentle heart. He’s a decent guy, ergo only takes out the bad guys. But he takes out a lot of ‘m. Lots.

    Well researched, both in military ops and local color. No explicit sex, no language inappropriate to the character or situation. Very imaginative scenes, lots and lots of shoot-m-up stuff, and surprising plot twists. The action is breathtakingly fast – very well written. You’ll find full synopsis reviews elsewhere, but briefly: Court Gentry has been royally screwed by the CIA and he goes through hell and back to find out why. He gets into many jams there is no way he can get out of … no way … but somehow….

    Anything more gives away too much fun. For the most enjoyment, start with Book 1, The Gray Man.

    Jay Snyder does narration for the entire series, and is excellent. No issues. You’ll have no trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who. Only one minor complaint. At one time a character is supposed to be voiced with a Chicago/midwestern accent. Well, it’s not even close and sounds more like the Bronx. Small stuff, huh.

    Anyway … these books are not great literature – just darned fun espionage. No doubt, there will be more books to the series. Enjoy!

    "I'm always so sorry when these books end..."

    I love this series - everything about it. The character, the writing and the narration. If you like thrillers, do yourself a favor and take a ride with the Gray Man. The only thing you have to lose is the hours you're going to spend listening.

    "Gunmetal Gray - the Gray Man"

    I really liked this book, but there again, I have enjoyed all Mark Greaney stories that I've read. The storyline is totally far-fetched, but it rolls along at such a gallop you don't really notice. Look forward to the next one.

    "Gray man as exciting as ever"

    Gentry manages to live another day whilst most others suffer when coming into contact with him. Basic clandestine spy stuff but the character is interesting and the whole book is fast paced. All Gray Man books build up an excellent picture and this one continues with an interesting twist which means I am looking forward to the next instalment.
    Narration is excellent and makes for easy character definition when listening to the plot unfurl.

    "Perfect combo."

    This has to be one of my top 3 series at the moment and i cant get enough. There is great action with a great storey line to go along side it. I think that this author and narrator make possibly the best combination and i could listen to them all day. If you enjoy listening to authors like Tom Wood, vince flynn, stephen leather, brad thor and tom clancy then you are going to love this series. All i can say is just give it a go.
