Introduced to Mark Greaney through the Clancy novels, 'Back Blast' was my first under his own name, so impressed I bought this book. The action is non stop and at its conclusion leaves you wanting . I know its in the wrong order, but I have purchased the 'Gray Man' and will follow the adventures of Court Gentry aka 'The Gray Man' as was the intention. Good books Mark Greaney Only just found Mark Greaney and the Gray Man and I've just finished this last of the series, for the moment, I sincerely hope! This book and the preceding Back Blast were just awesome. Right up my street complex, but, in my opinion, easy to follow plots and characters and filled not only with explosive action but a damn good helping of intrigue as well. Mark has successfully developed and defined Court Gentry as a character throughout the series and I'm really hoping that he reintroduces Zoya in forthcoming books. Poor old Court needs a good woman in his life somewhere! Can't wait for number 7! Keep them coming Mark! Mark Greaney I've now read the 7 books in this series. The storyline is easy reading although the main character and what befalls him is somewhat unbelievable. Not enough direct speech and far too much unnecessary in depth explanation of technical matters. Never the less an enjoyable read and one book leads nicely into the next. Mark Greaney Yet another excellent book in the series. Reading them one after the other. Hope there is a future reunion of Zoya and Court or I will be pissed

Keep up the good work. How about a book 9? Mark Greaney I’m hooked on this series, I read the first book and didn’t really enjoy it so didn’t continue with subsequent books. A couple of years later I couldn’t find anything to read so decided to try the second book, I don’t remember why I wasn’t a fan of the first book, probably just read it at the wrong time.
Great characters and story line Mark Greaney

I have read each book in order to date. This is the sixth of the current seven. I will def read the next one. Where book five was the best of the lot this was by far the worst. Extremely slow thru the first 70% or so. Not typical gray man fashion. Additionally the ending was very rushed and poorly put together. Lastly, how Brewer an absolutely deplorable character who turned on Gentry and the cia to some extent in book five becomes so empowered in book six makes zero sense. I will read the next book and hope the author returns to form! This character is still the best created by any of the big ones in this genre. da Silva / Flynn / Thor etc. On to the next.. Mark Greaney Gunmetal Gray continues the hugely successful Gray Man series (#6 this time) by Mark Greaney. Having gotten back into the good graces of the CIA, Court takes on his first job with Susan Brewer as his handler. As to be expected, the CIA inserts Gentry into an unfolding operation that appears simple, but is anything but. With his old friend and employer, Fitzroy, life on the line, Gentry must present himself as someone taking a contract from the Chinese to recover a hacker on the run from the Peoples' Liberation Army attempting to defect to Taiwan. While the Chinese want him dead, the US and Russia would each love to secure him for themselves. Meanwhile, various criminal gangs move him around and find him useful for their own reasons. As usual, Court finds himself in the middle of unanticipated action and improvises as only the Gray Man can.

Court's tradecraft is full throttle with plenty of action. At the same time, Court finds a potential soulmate in the form of a female Russian doppelganger which not only offers a softer side of the Gray Man, but hints at some interesting future adventures. All the action unfolds across South East Asia for a nice change of pace from earlier installments. Greaney manages to prevent the franchise from becoming stale and has positioned the various entities for plenty of fresh material in the future. Mark Greaney I anticipated this book than the others. The Grey man was finally back in the game and I couldn't wait to see him in this new element. Would he be fully trusted? How would he operate now that he had the 'toys' of the CIA? without looking over his shoulder for killers? I take nothing away from Mr. Greaney's skills as a writer. He remains one of the best action story tellers in the game. I was surprised at how many times I put this book down. Court seemed to be on the outside of this op trying to get in. Or trying to blast himself out. His new handler was inept and not willing to use him to capacity and he was constantly frustrated by the roadblocks. So was I. Enter Zoya. Never saw that coming. When she takes on a fuller role in the storyline I couldn't put the book down. Marc tossed a grenade in the plot twist I never saw coming but it worked. Liked that development. Would like to see her again but as the series keeps reminding us, Court Gentry is a singleton. At least for now. Mark Greaney After the last novel I had to jump into the next Gray Man novel. This is one of my favorite series. You can tell the author does his research. The action is pulse pounding and the flow is great, but suffers at times from lazy writing in my opinion.

While Court certainly put his skillset to good use he also was caught up too easily. I especially hated the ending. No way he would have allowed himself to get caught like that so easily. The writing gets sloppy at times or just plain lazy. How does someone that is choking someone from behind wrap their legs around the person's lower back? I had to reread that part just to make sure I read it right. As someone who has trained in hand to hand, I knew that part was horrible. I hope the author tightens up his writing. I don't want to go into so much of the negative of the book. There really was positive than negative.

Court is put into some really interesting situations, situations only he could get out of. He has quite the adventure throughout Southeast Asia. To include battling Russian Special Forces, not spetznotz multiple times. Coming up against and eventually working with a Russian femme fatale. Setting up something awesome for the next book.

You will not be disappointed with this Gray Man novel overall.

(Edited 6/24/19) Mark Greaney Another great Gray Man novel. This one is Greaney's most complicated plot so far. Most likely a result of the writing of the Tom Clancy books. This one centers around a high level Chinese PLA hacker, Fan Jiang, who defects and is on the run. The Chinese want him dead and throw everything they have at finding him, including hiring Ritzroy and his contract killers. The CIA see an opportunity to insert a man into the Chinese operation and hire Court to contact his old handler Fitzroy looking for a job. PLA Colonel Dai hires Court to kill Fan, but if he fails, Fitzroy dies. Fan goes to the biggest gang in Hong Kong for protection, becoming their prisoner. When Court chases down threads he must watch his six because he's competing with assassins, Dai's operatives and a team of Russian SVR Zaslon operators led by Zoya, a female operative who beguiles Court. The chase and resulting battles jump from Hong Kong to Saigon to Cambodia to Thailand as the story twists and turns. All the while, Court frustrates both his CIA handler and Dai when he provides updates and asks for intel without ever showing his true intentions or obeying their orders. Unpredictable and constantly interesting. I really liked this one. Mark Greaney
