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.

Gray man as exciting as ever

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.

great series

I really enjoyed this Gray man series.
Lost of good action and adventure.
It's no deep work of classical literature but it kept me going at work and while driving.
Hoping for another soon

Greaney sets the bar even higher.

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

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!
