Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling coauthor of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels comes an all-new explosive thriller featuring the lethal assassin known as the Gray Man....
Court Gentry was the CIA's best agent. Until the day the agency turned against him and put out a kill-on-sight order. That's 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. He's 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 doesn't realize is that the questions that arose from that mission are still reverberating in the US intelligence community, and he's 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 it's on US soil - the last place he wants to be. Now he'll have to find the answers to his fate while evading capture...and avoiding death.

Excellent next step in this series.

I've loved this series from the first one to the last. No wonder the Clancy people picked this author up.

Wow! When's the movie?

It has been a while since the last Gray Man book, but this was worth the wait. Just fantastic. Court Gentry doesn't know why the term order was given on him, so he has been running for more than 5 years. He wants answers, he doesn't want to hurt anyone, but the bodies keep piling up. And most of them? He didn't kill them. Who is killing the people he needs to talk to? Who is after him?

We are allowed to know part of the story right from the start, but not all of it. There are crosses, double crosses, and triple crosses! Surprise after surprise, you can't guess it all. And action? If this were a movie, I would have been out of my seat cheering and jumping up and down. This book makes me want to run and leap, and yell.

There are several characters to hug, and some to slap, or as Gentry does, let others kill. It is sad to me that these highly-trained men who often get into this business because of patriotism, then work together as brothers can then turn on and kill each other just because they have orders. I hope that part isn't true.

Gentry finally does get it all sorted out, yet still gets the shaft. but if he retired to a farm in Virginia, there would be no more Sierra 6. I am happy that there will be room for a few more Gray Man books.

Jay Snyder does a wonderful job reading this book. Congratulations to Mark Greaney!

Maybe most of this is unrealistic, but Bruce Willis and James Bond seem to keep us believing, so I am willing to go with the Gray Man. And Court Gentry is a really good guy.
