Author Mark Greaney does it again! Agent in Place is Book 7 in his Court Gentry series and Greaney's 14th novel overall (the other 7 are in Tom Clancy' continuing Jack Ryan Jr. series). All 14 earn 5 stars! He stands with Ben Coes, Brad Thor, Daniel Silva,and Brad Taylor as the top tier of current espionage thriller authors.
The publisher's summary likely says a little too much in setting up Agent in Place, so I will not comment further on plot specifics. Espionage thrillers are successful based on the plot line, the intensity of suspense, and the amount of action. Espionage thriller protagonists are expected to be intelligent and smart in a practical sense as the perform almost impossible feats despite being tired and injured. They are the calm in the midst to the storm. Mark Greaney's plots and protagonist excel. Jay Snyder's narration is superb as his usual in the Gray Man series.

Court Gentry to the rescue!
Fantastic book with Court taking some of his most daring risks, or close anyway. As Wayne (Audible reviewer) said, the publisher's summary sets up the plot almost too well. In the espionage genre I do think the Gray Man books are neck 'n neck with Flynn's Mitch Rapp.
One thing about Gentry is his Moral Code that he will not deviate from if at all possible. When I read the plot summary I couldn't figure out why he would put his life on the line to rescue this woman's four month old baby. But then he finds out the infant will be killed if he doesn't get him out. OK, I understand now! Gentry could never let an innocent baby be murdered. So off he goes sneaking into Syria with all his stealth and cunning. The only question is how battered will he be by the time he get out...
Court is a deadly genius, often with super heroic antics but Mark Greaney has a fantastic ability to make it all sound so believable! Combined with Jay Snyder's outstanding narration, this book is another winner.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!!

I enjoyed this book, I enjoyed 30 other books that were the same tho, be it Milton, Bourne, the greyman, orphan x, reacher etc etc.... They are all the same - someone's in trouble then the ex specialnops guy saves the day because of his "code" c'mon guys step up! Saying that, he filler is decent here and the delivery is excellent.
One of the best gray man books. Can’t wait for the next instalment .
The gray man is by far one of my favourite assassins along side motch rapp and John Milton
Not as good as earlier books. I think the plot has been lost. A bit disappointing.
The Gray Man series is just getting better and better .. Mark Greaney's writing is world class and he is at the top of his game perfectly paired with Jay Snyder also at his best ..
It might take Mark another year to come up with another story but I don't know how he will beat Agent in Place for pure non-stop action writing ..!!
Just perfect immersive writing ..!!
