Book 2, the premise of meeting a woman, wanting her out of the way, getting her out of the way then deciding to save her all alone in a foreign country and using items that just fall into the antiheros path like ... like ... like ... magic, is so over the top I just deleted it from my Kindle.
Ridiculous is one thing, stupid is a horse of a different color. You'd have to be desperate or extremely sick of watching TV re reuns to read this author.
Judging by the reviews, you'll have lots of company.
ON TARGET picks up a few months after the explosive conclusion with a Gentry who is trying to get back in the game and is struggling with a painkiller addiction. His new employer, a Russian playboy with ties to both the FSB and the Russian neo-Nazi scene, who task him with a difficult job: assassinate the president of Sudan.
Before Gentry can move to complete the contract, he is intercepted by his former SAD/SOG team leader, Zack Hightower, and given a deal he can't refuse: kidnap the Sudanese president rather than assassinate him, and the Agency will not only lift the termination order on Gentry, they will employ him at arms length for deniable operations.
ON TARGET's pacing picks up fast and does not stop for much. From the streets of Ireland, to the slums of Moscow, and through the desert expanse and haboobs of Darfur and Khartoum, Gentry fights his way through Sudanese soldiers and secret police, retired contract killers, skinheads, and others en route to his objective.
In GRAY MAN, Greaney showed how Gentry is simultaneously a methodical, pragmatic killer and a man with a soul, willing to throw operational common sense to the wind in order to save those he deems innocent and deserving. That trend is continued in ON TARGET, and in fact is the driving force behind the action. There are also moments of parallels drawn between a particularly heinous character and Gentry where the latter is forced to really analyze himself and what he does for a living, at times questioning himself.
The action is kinetic and well-researched, written with a voice that clearly knows firearms and has sought out expert instruction on their tactical employment. It definitely throws the reader into overdrive in a race from the front cover to the back.
With a cliffhanger ending that sets the stage for the next Gray Man series entry, ON TARGET is everything an action thriller should be: exciting, harrowing, educational, and gripping from start to finish.
