Publisher's Summary

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.

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!

Another winner from author Mark Greaney!

Gunnetal Gray is the 6th novel in Mark Greaney's Gray Man/Court Gentry espionage thriller series. This novel continues Greaney's string of ten 5 star novels in the Gray Man series and the Jack Ryan franchise series combined. (Greaney also coauthored 3 Jack Ryan series novels with Tom Clancy before Clancy's death.) The publisher's summary provides adequate background for Gunmetal Gray, so I will not repeat it here. This book does well as a stand alone, but is even better if the six Gray Man novels are listened to in order. In my opinion Mark Greaney stands as the unchallenged No. 1 among the currently living authors of espionage thriller authors; his books are the current best of genre. Jay Snyder does a great job of narrating although he is not as good as Scott Brick who narrates Greaney's novels in the Jack Ryan series.

Gunmetal Gray and all of Mark Greaney's novels have my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION.
