Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Tom Clancys Jack Ryan novels, comes an all-new explosive thriller featuring the lethal assassin known as the Gray Man…

Court Gentry was the CIAs best agent. Until the day the Agency turned against him and put out a kill on sight order. Thats when the enigmatic international assassin called the Gray Man was born—and Court has been working for himself ever since

Now, Court is back in Washington looking for answers. Hes determined to find out what happened all those years ago that made the Agency turn against him. On his list to interrogate are his former partners and the men who sent him on his last mission. What he doesnt realize is that the questions that arose from that mission are still reverberating in the U.S. intelligence community, and hes stumbled onto a secret that powerful people want kept under wraps. And now, they have Court in their crosshairs.

Court Gentry is used to having people on his trail, but this time, its on U.S. soil—the last place he wants to be. Now, hell have to find the answers to his fate while evading capture…and avoiding death

 

Review:

"In Greaney's fast-paced, fun debut thriller, Court 'The Gray Man' Gentry, a former CIA operative now renowned as the ultimate killer for hire, is on the job in Syria and Iraq. To his shock, he learns that a team sent in to rescue him now has him targeted for elimination. On the run, Gentry slowly realizes that huge forces are marshaling against him, from his former government to the one man in England he always trusted. With unbelievable powers of survival, the Gray Man eludes teams of killers and deadly traps, while the reader begins to cheer for this unlikely hero. Cinematic battles and escapes fill out the simplistic but satisfying plot, and Greaney deftly provides small details to show Gentry's human side, offset by the petty rivalries and greed of his enemies." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man--a legend in the covert realm. He always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Available in a tall Premium Edition. Original.

Synopsis:

OPENING MOVE.

After executing a hit on a fellow assassin in Algiers, Victor—the world's deadliest hit man—is contracted by the CIA for an assignment that will take him across Europe to the blood-stained streets of Rome...and straight into hell.

COUNTER MOVE.

Victor must pose as his previous—and very much dead—target to figure out who the killers next victim was going to be. But what was supposed to be a quick operation soon becomes much more complicated and treacherous.

FINAL MOVE.

Forced to work with a group of ruthless mercenaries, Victor will face a choice he would rather not make: do the right thing, or sacrifice the only thing in the world he truly cares about—his own life.

Synopsis:

Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows—to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something hes never had to face before.

A killer who is just like him.

Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry. But now, Whitlock is a free agent who has been directed to terminate his fellow student of death. He knows how his target thinks, how he moves, and how he kills. And he knows the best way to do the job is to make Gentry run for his life—right up until the moment Dead Eye finally ends it…
