If you are looking for fast paced action, you will have located your target with this story. Greaney has allowed the character of Court Gentry to grow and change over the years so watching how the agent operates in such a hostile environment and yet maintain his values is something I enjoy very much. The political quagmire in the Syria of this novel was complicated to the extreme and yet I'm sure Greaney is using information he gets from his research to let us know what it's like just to survive in a country constantly at war within its borders. As always I learn some great information about the intelligence tradecraft and weaponry from reading one of these novels. I was especially interested in the sniper weapon and shooter capability aspects.
While the Court Gentry books are all written to be standalone novels (and this one is no exception) I hope you will enjoy this one so much you will want to go back and pick up the first book (The Gray Man). I have read that first book three times and am still impressed with the intricacy of the plotting. Book seven continues that fine plotting legacy.
Also, he barely mentions the gear that the characters in the book use, which he had done a masterful job of in his prior books in this series. Always nice to know what gear is getting the nod from the action boys, that Greaney interviews.
In this novel, our Gray Man, has no romantic involvements and his two women from the prior book are mentioned only in passing.
To me the plot was a little thin, but with action novels one does not expect a lot, but I had gotten used to more in the last few books in this series.
The plot is pretty straight forward - the Gray Man is hired to "rescue" the mistress of the leader of a Middle-Eastern country, so, she can be used to help bring about regime change - which of course goes totally sideways and ends up with "our hero" having to travel to the Middle-East on another rescue missing, plus more.
The Gray Man is as close as we can currently get to a real "Matt Helm" type of character, but still it was bothersome for the Gray Man to be moralizing about the tactics used by some of the military contractors.
If you are into the series - you have to buy this one, just to stay current. If you are not into the series yet - buy them all and read them in order of publication.
