Synopsis

The Gray Man by Mark Greaney

To those who lurk in the shadows, he's known as the Gray Man. He is a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. Forces like money. And power. And there are men who hold these as the only currency worth fighting for. In their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. But Court Gentry is going to prove that, for him, there's no grey area between killing for a living and killing to stay alive...

Reviews

A high-octane thriller that doesn't pause for more than a second. For readers looking for a thriller where the action comes fast and furious, this is the ticket. * Chicago Sun Times * Writing as smooth as stainless steel and a hero as mean as razor wire The Gray Man glitters like a blade in an alley. * David Stone * Here is a debut novel like a well-honed dagger: sharp, merciless, and deadly. Mark Greaney's The Gray Man is Bourne for the new millennium. * James Rollins * Through the carnage, Gentry remains an intriguing protagonist with his own moral code. Comparisons will be made to Jason Bourne, but the Gray Man is his own character. The ending screams for a sequel, but it will be difficult to maintain the intensity level of this impressive debut. * Booklist * [A] fast-paced, fun debut thriller. * Publishers Weekly * Hard, fast, and unflinching--exactly what a thriller should be. * Lee Child *
