Publisher's Summary

Get ready for white-knuckled listening. Greaney's debut novel - and future feature film - introduces the enigmatic and elusive Court Gentry, a former CIA operative and a legendary hired gun. With a terrifying ability to vaporize targets and a strict moral code, he stalks the gray margins of the world, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, then fading away. When his government and former employers turn on him, there is no safehouse to run to, no way to lie low. In a constant state of escape and pursuit, Gentry tears through the Middle East and Europe in a riveting life-or-death race against time.

Fast-paced, well-researched, and fun, The Gray Man is already being adapted for a movie by the company behind Tom Cruise's Knight & Day.

Check out the latest Gray Man novel, On Target, now.

What the Critics Say

"Through the carnage, Gentry remains an intriguing protagonist with his own moral code. Comparisons will be made to Jason Bourne, but the Gray Man is his own character. The ending screams for a sequel, but it will be difficult to maintain the intensity level of this impressive debut." (Booklist)

"Hard, fast, and unflinching – exactly what a thriller should be." (Lee Child)

"Bourne for the new millennium." (James Rollins)

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    Story
    ""Indiana Jones" cloned with "Mitch Rapp"! WOW!!!!"

    There's a new hero in town, and his name is "The Gray Man". There is a new top espionage writer in town, and his name is Mark Greaney(look out Vince Flynn). There is a new top narrator in town, and his name is Jay Snyder(look out Mr. Guidall). I bought two of the three books in the series after having read another reviewers praise of the "Gray Man" Series. I have now finished the first 2 of 3 books and am nearly finished with the 3rd. If you like the action Mitch Rappp character in the many Vince Flynn books as well as the non stop action epitomized in the Indiana Jones series, you will love this series. However if you plan to get to sleep at night, don't plan to listen to just 30 minutes before bed. You will lose hours of sleep in this extraordinary action thriller. I can't wait for the next book to come out!

    Never heard of Mark Greaney prior to seeing his name on Audible. One of the most enjoyable listening I have had. I look forward to downloading more of his work.

    "a enjoyable listen"

    My first by this author. It wasn't deep but it was an enjoyable, entertaining listen. Kind of Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp like. This guy couldn't catch a break. I'll listen to the author again.

    "Great frist book."

    I enjoyed this book. It was a little different from what you usually find in this genre, but kept to much of the basic formula as well. Great first book. The other books in the series were not quite as good, but still entertaining.

    "Not my usual kind of book"

    This was like a Bourne adventure, and I don't even remember buying it! But I must say that I couldn't stop listening to it once I started. I even went and bought the next two in the series!

    "Great listen!"

    If you need something to keep you listening long after you would have otherwise stopped, this one will do it. I'll definitely find more from Mark Greaney!

    "Great!"

    The only warning I would give is to make sure, before you start this book, that you have 11 hours of listening time available because once you start it you won't want to stop.

    "Gripping, fast-moving"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It kept me entertained and gripped for 2 days and I couldn't wait to get my headset on and into the car. The plot was fast moving albeit a bit far-fetched in certain places. I overlooked those details because of the sheer pace of the story. Brilliantly narrated, although the accents were not that good.

    "Fast paced, gritty and full of twists."

    I enjoyed the suspense and the narration was excellent. Looking forward to the rest of this series. The main character took a little getting use to, however wouldn't change him in any way.

    "Great story, just a bit too long!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think the number of fights along the way were a little to many to offer credibility to the story, perhaps shortened version by at least 2 teams... I ended up fast forwarding through the last "two kill teams" sections... Still a great story a first for me with Mark Greaney


    Was The Gray Man worth the listening time?

    Yes, but got a little monotonous :(


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the book some great one liners from a very dry main character... Worth A listen

    "Great book but questionable accents"

    The story is great, but the American narrator's grasp of any accent (Irish, English / other are all over the place which becomes a bit distracting after a time) didn't stop me enjoying the book and have just bought the next in the series.

    Story
    "Entertaining Drivel"
    If you could sum up The Gray Man in three words, what would they be?

    Quite an entertaining story - not challenging in any way shape or form but good background listening when you are doing things around the house.

    An enjoyable listen when you have switched your brain off.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's pronunciation is dreadful. Annoyed me at first, then made me laugh as it was so ludicrous - listen out for Citroen, Tblisi and Peugeot.

    Story
    "Superhuman hitman"

    Almost quit reading during the first chapter when ragheads were dancing on the bodies of patriot Americans who died wrapped in the US flag. Well almost. It got better though, and ended up being quite entertaining in a comic book Willie Garvin way.
