In this volume, Court Gentry is back to working for the CIA, and his first job is to locate a Chinese hacker trying to flee China. Along the way, he'll tangle with Russian spetsnaz, Chinese spies, and assorted criminal gangs across Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. He'll also be at odds with his own CIA handlers. The plot is tense and tight. The action scenes are exciting and over the top, with a very cinematic quality to them, and Court Gentry is the perfect action/spy series character.
So why not five stars? The book would have benefited greatly by a little editing and a slightly shorter length. I often felt likeI was spending a lot of time reading without the plot advancing anywhere. Some scenes and descriptions seemed to drag longer than necessary, and the plot became somewhat repetitive as the Chinese hacker is captured or handed off from one criminal organization to another.
Or maybe it's just that there's no way Mark Greaney can top the absolutely flawless masterpiece that is Dead Eye (Gray Man).
Now that Court has made peace with the CIA they send him out as a contract agent - but, as usual there are complications piled upon complications - but, that is the life of the Gray Man. Interesting story with plenty of twists and turns.
What I found of interest were the stories around the two women that had major places in this book - Court's CIA handler Suzanne Brewer and SVR officer Zoya Zakharova. If one steps back from the action of the plot - one can see this as a tale of the two women - and their differences. Brewer is driven by a thirst for power and advancement within the CIA, while Zoya is driven by the same desire to do the right thing, and love of country, that drives the Gray Man (although the "country" in Zoya's case is Russia).
Although there is plenty of shooting and plenty of weapons are used - there does not seem to be the fascination with weapons that we saw in some of Greaney's earlier work.
A fun book to read and very hard to put down.
