The Gray Man's search for missing intelligence agents plunges him deep into a maelstrom of trouble in the latest entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
The first agent 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 re-appears 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The CIA’s most in-demand freelance operative has some old scores to settle and some romantic loose ends to tie off. In this installment of Mark Greaney’s popular Gray Man series, Court Gentry teams up with longtime partner Zack Hightower and former Russian spy Zoya Zakharova to investigate why global intelligence agents are dropping like flies. Greaney’s pulse-pounding action sequences are amazing—from a tense standoff in an abandoned factory to a high-octane chase through downtown Berlin. Every explosive moment feels positively cinematic, so it’s no surprise that the Gray Man books are being adapted for the screen. Be sure to read this international adventure for yourself so you can decide if Ryan Gosling is up to the task of portraying the Gray Man.
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

It’s good to see the Gray Man back in action. The book had several twists and turns, and the plot was a bit complicated. However, more than readable! And the ending....it will be another year until the next one comes out, and that is way too long to wait!
The gray man is always an excellent book to read. The book keeps you on edge and its never a dull moment with the gray man. The only problem I have is that it’s a shame that the agency that created him treats him like crap. You would think they would appreciate him more for what he has done or doing for his country. I wish the writer would convey that more.
Couldn’t put the book down! Stayed up late and put off studying. Great read. Flows from one scene to the next with little to no hiccups. Action is superb but the psychological games are what makes the whole world come together.
