Description

Mark Greaney, the New York Times best-selling coauthor of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, delivers another breakneck thriller following the world's deadliest assassin - the Gray Man.

After five years on the run, Court Gentry is back on the inside at the CIA. But his first mission makes him wish he had stayed on the outs when a pair of Chinese agents try to take him down in Hong Kong. Normally the Chinese prefer to stay eyes-only on foreign agents. So why are they on such high alert? Court's high stakes hunt for answers takes him across Southeast Asia and leads to his old friend, Donald Fitzroy, who is being held hostage by the Chinese. Fitzroy was contracted to find Fan Jiang, a former member of an ultra-secret computer warfare unit responsible for testing China's own security systems. And it seems Fan may have been too good at his job - because China wants him dead. The first two kill teams Fitzroy sent to find Fan have disappeared, and the Chinese have decided to "supervise" the next operation. What they don't know is that Gentry's mission is to find Fan first and get whatever intel he has to the US. After that, all he has to do is get out alive.

Another amazing Gray Man novel

I have enjoyed all of the Gray Man novels. I particularly enjoyed the fact that he met a female version of himself. I really hope they get to work together again. I could not stop listening to this book it only took 2 days. I enjoy Jay Snyder’s soft spoken voice of Court Gentry hope he continues to be the voice of the Gray Man.

Hollywood on paper

a bit Hollywood at times but it's a great read and suspenseful when necessary. definitely would make for a good movie adaptation.

Court cannot trust anyone!

This book lost stars for me because the injustice left me frustrated and angry. Court cannot trust anyone!!! I despise his handler, Suzanne Brewer. She is wicked, devious and a backstabbing betrayer. So is everyone else in the CIA, except Court, who really is no longer in the CIA. The story is good, except for the total injustice at the end. Terrible ending!!! However, there is a lot of action and battles galore. I throughly enjoyed Court's new friend he calls Spider Monkey, who was a Russian operative. She is as talented as Court in killer skills. I hope she shows up again in future books. Mainly I hope that Suzanne Brewer gets wiped out completely; also Matt Hannly, Zack Hightower, and others on Court's old CIA goon squad.

Another thrilling adventure

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Non-stop action, great performance!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

From Asia with Love

Any additional comments?

Mark Greaney is the #1 New York Times Best-selling co-author of more than six books in the Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series and this month he released the 6th thrilling novel in his own, original, Gray Man series. If you’ve followed my blog posts over this last year you may know that I’m a big fan of Mark‘s and that I always devour his works with abandon.

In Gunmetal Gray, Court Gentry aka The Gray Man is back with his old employer at the Central Inteligence Agency and the action takes place right after the events of the last year’s fantastic Back Blast. Court is sent into Hong Kong in a solo mission with orders to kidnap a Chinese hacker and to rescue an old friend, but when he is recognized at the airport by Chinese operators in the intelligence Bureau all his plans are out the window and The Gray Man is on his own.

Without me giving anything of the plot away, I will say that although Gunmetal Gray is not quite as intense as its predecessor, Back Blast, the story is great, the action is non-stop and the Gray Man is deadlier than ever… The are guns, explosions, hand to hand combat, gadgets, boats, spies, special operators of all kinds, hackers, women whom at the same time are beautiful and deadly. There is betrayal, blackmail, murder and a lot of intelligence agencies are battleling one another, fighting to get their hands on the hacker before Court does. I loved the breakneck speed with witch events develop, I enjoyed the race from country to country, the Gray Man‘s resourcefulness to conquer any situation, the cat and mouse games and the timid love story developing between… well, I’ll let you find that out on your own.

This Gray Man audiobook is brought to life once again with talent and passion by the great actor and voice over artist Jay Snyder. His voice reminds me of Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series of video games, he can read, act, prelongue the tension and infuse action scenes with urgency. He even sounds good performing all the words in different asiatic languages. For Gunmetal Gray he uses lots of accents and voices, from gruff Russian for pissed off operatives, to scared Chinese henchmen, dialing it down to calm and even feminine cadences. He is perfect for this series and it’s obvious that he enjoys the role.

I said it lots of times and I’ll say it again Mark Greaney is one of the best thriller / espionage writers of the moment, Gunmetal Gray is intense, unputdownable and thrilling from beginning to end. I saw Mark evolve with every book and and I can’t wait for the next one in this great series! If you enjoy works by authors like Robert Ludlum, Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn you’ll love what Mark delivers with the Gray Man series.

Great Book, Overshadowed by its Perfect Predecessor

I stayed up all night to finish, "Gunmetal Gray!" The story is fluid, with a heavier emphasis on action/adventure than espionage compared to the last 2 books. It is an enjoyable read, although it suffers from the fabulous success of the previous Gray Man, "Back Blast."

Without giving away spoilers, I loved the interplay between the shadowy criminal organizations, spy services, hacking, government commandos and exotic locales. Frankly, I liked it so much that I would have enjoyed a few more hours worth of details.

Jay Snyder did a superb job with the narration. His many voices, accents, and tones make the characters come alive. If they ever make a movie, they better dub in his voice to make sure the movie is as realistic as the book!

P.S. Not that it matters, but "Back Blast" was the best action/adventure/espionage thriller that I've read since Ian Fleming's most outstanding achievement, "From Russia with Love." It occurred to me while writing this review that the 5th James Bond book and the 5th Gray Man book were also the best in each series. Both books were hard, if not impossible acts to follow!

Greaney sets the bar even higher.

The only disappointment is when it's over. From beginning to end a thrilling ride. Long may the team of Mark Greaney, Courtland Gentry, and Jay Snyder reign. Amen

--

Court Gentry is back, in the somewhat good graces of the CIA. He has a new handler, a desk jockey who's never seen a bit of action in her life, and a new assignment. He doesn't have all the information on it and soon he is flying by the seat of his pants, with no help from the CIA. An old friend, Donald Fitzroy is being held hostage by the Chinese and Gentry is willing to do anything that it takes to get him back. This takes him all over Asia, crashing into several gangs and his team of Russians.

Gunmetal Gray is another outstanding book in the fantastic series written by Mark Greary. Greary. Court Gentry helps fill the void from Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. I cannot wait for the next book to be released sometime in 2018!

Jay Snyder is perfect in his voice performance of Court Gentry and the characters that surround him. Excellent!

Listeners should be warned that there is some strong language and descriptive violence.

Difficult

Not up to Gray Man standards. Too much filler, not enough story. Gray Man fatigue?

Lackluster compared to Back Blast!

Back Blast is my favorite in the series and I listened to it then started this one and was disappointed immediately.

All of the previous Gray Man novels, I couldn't stop - I would find ways to listen to the story. However, in this novel, I stopped many times throughout due to a disconnected plot or a plot I couldn't grasp as 'real'.

Too many mistakes by everyone involved in the action but the 'romance' added in this book sets up the Gray Man for a future co-player.

The ending was 'blah' as well as many other parts scattered in the book. I can tell characters are being built for future novels in the series but other than his 'girl friend' - boring characters.

Not the best but if you are a true Gray Man fan, you will 'enjoy' it, but I doubt you will find it the best.

The narration is excellent as always by Jay Snyder.

Enthralling

This is book six in the Gray Man series. It is important to read these books in order. Courtland Gentry is a CIA agent turned freelancer. The CIA send Gentry to Hong Kong. He is to find and bring out a Chinese Defector, Fan Jiang. Fan Jiang is a cyber warfare specialist for the Chinese Government. His parents just died in an auto accident. Now that he has no family, the cyber-unit is out to terminate him because they no longer have leverage control over him. Fan wants to go to Taiwan, but the CIA wants him, as do the Chinese, the Russians and a Vietnamese gang.

The book is well written. Greaney co-wrote several of the Tom Clancy novels. Greaney creates an intricate plot. The story weaves in the exotic scenery of the orient. The action, excitement and tension is never ending. If you enjoy none stop action this is a book for you.

The book is about seventeen hours long. Jay Snyder does an excellent job narrating the series. Snyder is a voice over artist and an award-winning audiobook narrator.
