In Greaney's fast-paced, fun debut thriller, Court The Gray Man Gentry, a former CIA operative now renowned as the ultimate killer for hire, is on the job in Syria and Iraq. To his shock, he learns that a team sent in to rescue him now has him targeted for elimination. On the run, Gentry slowly realizes that huge forces are marshaling against him, from his former government to the one man in England he always trusted. With unbelievable powers of survival, the Gray Man eludes teams of killers and deadly traps, while the reader begins to cheer for this unlikely hero. Cinematic battles and escapes fill out the simplistic but satisfying plot, and Greaney deftly provides small details to show Gentry's human side, offset by the petty rivalries and greed of his enemies.

"...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."
Great slant on a story about an assasin. The pace is very fast. I was left wanting more background on the main character. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Raymond Proulx
Not bad, would look for another book with the lead character to see how he evolves (or survives as the author has no problem exacting a physical toll with the Gray Man's exploits).Published 13 days ago by GIDoc
Too much filler. I don't need to know that someone opened a cr door before getting into the car. etc.Published 19 days ago by Linda L.
Book was good, medically unreal. Superman doesn't exist.
I will read his next book,hope he stays less injured.
