Gentry manages to live another day whilst most others suffer when coming into contact with him. Basic clandestine spy stuff but the character is interesting and the whole book is fast paced. All Gray Man books build up an excellent picture and this one continues with an interesting twist which means I am looking forward to the next instalment.
Narration is excellent and makes for easy character definition when listening to the plot unfurl.

The only disappointment is when it's over. From beginning to end a thrilling ride. Long may the team of Mark Greaney, Courtland Gentry, and Jay Snyder reign. Amen

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!
