Mark Greaney, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy's recent Jack Ryan novels, delivers another breakneck thriller following the world's deadliest assassin - the Gray Man.
After five years on the run, 'The Gray Man' - Court Gentry - is back on the inside at the CIA. His first mission makes him wish he wasn't, when a pair of Chinese agents try to take him down in Hong Kong. Normally the Chinese stay eyes-only on foreign agents - why are they on such high alert?
Court's high-stakes hunt leads to an 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 unit responsible for testing China's security systems. But Fan was too good at his job . . .
The first two 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 his intel to the US - and get out alive . . .
Bestseller Greaney's outstanding sixth Gray Man novel (after 2016's Back Blast) finds Court Gentry, now a contract employee of the CIA, joining an effort to locate one of the world's greatest computer hackers, 26-year-old Fan Jiang, a sergeant in the Chinese People's Liberation Army, who's on the run after escaping from mainland China. Teams of agents from Russia and China are also involved in the hunt for Fan. Court pretends to join the Chinese, because they have captured and are threatening to kill an old spy buddy, Sir Donald Fitzroy, a British agent who once saved Court's life. The Russians are led by Zoya Feodorovich Zakharova, an SVR operative, who's working with an elite SVR paramilitary unit known as Zaslon. Court eventually captures Zoya, who quickly becomes a love interest. The tension mounts as Court, with the help of the talented Zoya, chases Fan all over Eastern Asia. Gray Man fans will close the book happily fulfilled and eagerly awaiting his next adventure. Author tour.
