Donald.). Fun and fast paced and a great story twist at the end. I thought I had it all figured out..(.SURPRISE!!) I think it is my favorite one in the series so far. If you have been following the Gray Man, this is a must read. I know one other reviewer who thought it was too long and could have been written 100 pages shorter, but I say, thank you to the editor for all that you allowed. I couldn't get enough of it! Go Gray Man...you poor, troubled, lonely (but dedicated) soul.
Now, he has enemies everywhere and he is constantly hiding, watching over his shoulder and can never rest.
What makes him so special? He not only is the best assassin in the world, he also only takes on jobs where he knows he is ridding the world of truly awful people. He does the right thing. Even through 5 years of hell, hiding out in 3rd world countries from everyone who's after him, he remains fiercely loyal to the United States. He is a patriot and really wants nothing more than to go "home" to the US AND to get answers as to why the CIA wants him dead. In this, the 5th book in the Gray Man series, he finally gets those answers.
These books are so well written, the ideas that Mark Greaney come up, both that get Gentry into trouble, and the way he gets himself out, with are beyond heat pounding. Waiting for the next phase of what Court Gentry's life becomes is going to be like torture to this fan. Although, there is one thing that will make waiting for the next book bearable, the new book will be released on Feb. 21, 2017, my next birthday.
"Back Blast", the fifth in The Gray Man series, finally answers this question as Gentry covertly returns to the US to find out once and for all why the head our government clandestine services (Denny Carmichael) put a termination order on his head. The Gray Man is back home with plans to stop at nothing, including the loss of his own life, to find the truth and to exact revenge for what he has been through. But how can one man take on America's most powerful Black Ops decision maker who has the full force of assault teams, weapons, intelligence gatherers , etc. to hide behind?
Gentry must employ every deception, every trick of his trade, and utilize his remarkable skills and instincts to get close enough to the powerful decision makers to execute his plan while being chased by local police, special ops teams, and even a Saudi hit force. But as "Back Blast" unfolds, Gentry discovers he has "friends" he didn't know about who reluctantly are drawn into the battle on his side.
"Back Blast" is a fun but convoluted read filled with character studies, plot twists, red herrings, and almost constant action. There are several high suspense chase scenes that will have the reader in "white knuckle" mode for chapters at a time. "Back Blast" is a suspense thriller of over 500 pages that will keep readers captivated for days. Even as Gentry discovers the truth and revenge is exacted, his worldwide roaming status may not change--you'll just have to read to find out why. A high energy novel and series that should not be missed.
Mark Greaney, having written and co-written Tom Clancy novels, tells a starts a story that immediately draws you in and keeps you from wanting to put down the book.
Without giving anything away, if you enjoy other action/spy characters, but find it odd they always come out unscathed after a gunfight or physical fight and are looking for character you'd believe "yeah I can see that happening" then the Grey Man is for you.
I look forward to more from Mark Greaney and I really hope rumors of a movie are true, but hopefully the movie and character will hold true to the books.
