'I love the Gray Man' -- LEE CHILD
TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR THE CITY OF ANGELS
While on a mission to Croatia, Court Gentry uncovers a human trafficking operation. The trail leads from the Balkans all the way back to Hollywood.
Court is determined to shut it down, but his CIA handlers have other plans. The criminal ringleader has actionable intelligence about a potentially devastating terrorist attack on the US. The CIA won't move until they have that intel. It's a moral balancing act with Court at the pivot point.
From Mark Greaney, the New York Times bestselling author of Mission Critical and a co-author of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, comes another high-stakes thriller featuring the world's most dangerous assassin: the Gray Man.
In bestseller Greaney's remarkable ninth Gray Man novel (after 2019's Mission Critical), Courtland Gentry (aka The Gray Man) takes on the Consortium, an international sex slave cartel, the existence of which he stumbles on while committing a hit on a Serbian strongman. A former CIA employee, Gentry fell out of favor to the point that the agency was trying to kill him, and after getting that misunderstanding straightened out, the agency is still kind of trying to kill him, though he works as an off-the-books assassin in a secret CIA program called Poison Apple. Never mind his official status. What's important is that he's probably the greatest assassin in the world, and those who oppose him usually end up dead. In this case, he decides to defy his bosses and hunt down the men who are part of the Consortium, running his own op with no help other than that from Talyssa Corbu, a junior analyst for Europol, whose sister the sex traffickers have captured. As always, Gentry is up to the task. Spy thriller fans will be enthralled. Author tour.
Written in 1st person
Over last few weeks I have read the entire Gray man series, even pre ordering the 2021 book...but...all earlier stories were written by the 3rd party ie: “Court did this and Court did that”.
This book is written by Court...” I did this then I thought that”
Not an easy read and not as good at all
Not sure why the change but I hope the next book is about Court - not by Court
A great read
Really enjoyed this book, along with the other gray man stories, personally I prefer the stories in the third person but it does changes things up. Just finished this and will immediately move onto Relentless
Another addictive adrenaline storyline
From start to finish was non-stop action, Was a little bit weird to get used to the story being told in first person but this guy gets better and better.
