Disappearing intelligence analysts lead the Gray Man deep into a conspiracy in the latest explosive novel from number one New York Times bestseller Mark Greaney.
The first agent's disappearance was a puzzle.
The second was a mystery.
The third was a conspiracy.
Intelligence operatives around the world are disappearing. When a missing American agent reappears in Venezuela, Court Gentry, the Gray Man, is dispatched to bring him in, but a team of assassins has other ideas. Court escapes with his life and a vital piece of intelligence.
Meanwhile, CIA agent Zoya Zakharova is in Berlin. Her mission: to infiltrate a private intelligence firm with some alarming connections. The closer she gets to answers, the less likely she is to get out alive.
Court and Zoya are just two pieces on this international chessboard, and they're about to discover one undeniable truth: sometimes capturing a king requires sacrificing some pawns.
'I love the Gray Man'
'So propulsive, the murders so explosive, that flipping the pages feels like playing the ultimate videogame'

'Bourne for the new millennium'
'Intense, explosive, daring, funny, and ultimately just flat out awesome'
At the start of bestseller Greaney's solid 10th Gray Man novel (after 2020's One Minute Out), CIA operative Zach Hightower is trailing his target, a traitorous former NSA computer scientist, in a Caracas marketplace when he's grabbed by thugs from Venezuela's intelligence service. On learning of the failed mission, the CIA deputy director for operations rousts Zach's partner, CIA contract killer Court Gentry (aka the Gray Man), from his hospital bed, where he's recovering from a chest wound, and sends him to finish the job. Gentry takes on a long list of bad guys, including a group of American mercenaries working for the spy organization of the United Arab Emirates, a rogue international intelligence firm, and a Russian superagent who may be the only assassin in the world who could go one-on-one with Gentry and come out on top. Readers won't be wrong to suspect that Gentry, despite being at half strength, will prevail. Vivid action scenes more than make up for a complicated plot that can be hard to follow at times. Though short of Greaney's best, this is still a must for espionage thriller fans. \n
