'I love the Gray Man'
The Gray Man is back in another nonstop international thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels
Court Gentry is back in action. This time he's working on behalf of a well-connected group of Syrian expats to secure the Syrian president's mistress so they can use her to bring down the president's regime. But the expats' plan goes awry when it's discovered the mistress has a baby--the Syrian president's only male heir--hidden away in a Damascus safe house.
Court goes after the baby, a decision that comes at the price of the mistress's life. The expat organization deems the boy now useless to their cause and refuses to protect him against the Syrian first lady and the notorious Swiss assassin in her employ. With no support on the way, Court realizes he'll have to take down the Syrian president himself if he and the boy are going to make it out alive...

'One of the top must-read thrillers of 2018' The Real Book Spy
Erstwhile CIA operative Court Gentry, now a freelance mercenary, has a tall order in bestseller Greaney's excellent seventh Gray Man novel (after 2017's Gunmetal Gray): first he has to kidnap the mistress of Syria's tyrannical president, Ahmed Al-Azzam, to enlist her aid in toppling his murderous regime, then rescue her infant son left behind in Damascus. As cover, Court joins a mercenary force supporting Al-Azzam. Greaney brilliantly contrasts Court's pro bono humanitarian mission with the greedy mercenaries who fuel the Syrian civil war. Court, whose nom de guerre denotes a moral ambiguity, is not without avarice himself, but the mercs' depravity and lack of esprit de corps disgust him. When related missions out of his control are compromised, Court undertakes the suicidal task of eliminating Al-Azzam. Greaney's steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can't-miss.
