Top Customer Reviews
Kevin and his wife, Linda high school sweetheart were known as the losers and geeks of their high school and not much has changed all these years down the track. Kevin is a pretty much a doormat to his bullying boss at the local bank. His boss is incompetent and Kevin constantly saves his reputation by doing all his work and covering for him when head office asks questions. His boss yells at Kevin constantly, makes him pay for his dry cleaning and Kevin never says anything, instead he just smiles and takes it. Kevin wants next Friday off to celebrate his anniversary with a long weekend but his boss says no. Kevin knows Linda will be disappointed in him once again so decides to make it up to her with a plan to rob a couple of safety deposit boxes.
Problem is the story never reaches any great heights, which is especially disappointing when you consider Andy McNab is known for being an action thriller writer. There's really no action or edge of your seat reading in The Grey Man at all. Kevin isn't the brightest of characters, reading he undertakes the plans for the robbery you know that even if he is successful he's leaving behind credit card records and other proof along the way.Read more ›
30 minutes later I got off the bus with a smile on my face having finished the book (and almost missing my stop to read the last paragraph)
This book isn't ground breaking, life changing or ingeniously planned, but is an amusing short story who's simplicity gives it a realistic edge.
The main character is very likable, certaintly someone to relate to, and you feel the humble accomplishment this beyond ordinary guy is left with after being able to get away with his little flirtation with crime while sticking it to those who deserve it and giving something special to the love of his life.

Usually love his books. Decided to try one of his short stories. Disappointed at his change of genre. Even for a short story I thought it was very short.Published on May 4, 2014 by Hannah Montana
