It's been years since the Gray Man's first mission, but the trouble's just getting started in the latest entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Before he was the Gray Man, Court Gentry was Sierra Six, the junior member of a CIA action team.
In their first mission they took out a terrorist leader, at a terrible price. Years have passed. The Gray Man is on a simple mission when he sees a ghost: the long-dead terrorist, but he's remarkably energetic for a dead man.
A decade of time hasn't changed the Gray Man. He isn't one to leave a job unfinished or a blood debt unpaid.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this installment of Mark Greaney’s popular Gray Man series, ghosts from the past seek out brutal vengeance. Before becoming the sought-after assassin known as the Gray Man, Court Gentry learned the ropes of covert ops as Sierra Six, the new kid on an elite CIA squad. As part of that crew, Gentry helped take out a feared terrorist leader…but the mission might not have been as complete as he thought. Greaney uses dual timelines of past and present to tell this high-octane story—and when events from 12 years ago inevitably collide with the Gray Man’s current reality, the explosion is spectacular. We love Greaney’s meticulous attention to detail about everything from cutting-edge weapons to faraway locales. Look no further for an intense, nuanced adventure thriller.
Bestseller Greaney's excellent 11th Gray Man novel (after 2021's Relentless) delivers a double helping of honorable mercenary Courtland Gentry (aka the Gray Man), smoothly alternating between his first assignment with the "door kickers" of CIA paramilitary team Golf Sierra to interdict a terrorist group intent on detonating dirty radioactive bombs against American forces and his present-day quest for revenge on the planners of that enemy action. In the past, Gentry, though already a whispered figure in the halls at Langley, struggles to integrate his "singleton" lone-wolf strategies (and sometimes naive moral code) with unfamiliar military tactics, but team leader Zack Hightower is impressed with his almost-preternatural killing and tradecraft abilities, and Gentry is deployed with the squad to Pakistan. Twelve years after the devastating end of that mission, Gentry stumbles into his presumed-dead adversary, Murad Khan, on the cusp of staging an even deadlier evolution of his earlier plan. Greaney seamlessly adjusts focus between the timelines, jumping from one exhilarating roller-coaster ride to the other. Spy and military thriller fans will be well pleased.
