Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Disgraced former CIA agent Court "The Gray Man" Gentry (introduced in 2009's The Gray Man) makes ends meet as an assassin working for clients he cannot trust. Russian arms merchant Sidorenko wants Court to kill Sudan's President Abboud, arguably the man responsible for the genocide in Darfur. The CIA makes a counteroffer: kidnap Abboud and give him to American officials in exchange for amnesty. Court cannot refuse and treks through Sudan in pursuit of nebulous, ever-changing goals. Every element in this book is familiar, but Court is endearing in his perseverance even as his schemes are undermined by sympathetic victims, misleading information, outright lies, poor planning, betrayal, conflicting agendas, and simple bad luck. What could have been a storm of clichés becomes an action-filled yet touching story of a man whose reason has long ago been subsumed by his work ethic. (Oct.)

How does an author follow up a debut, national bestseller with high expectations on the line? How about brilliantly and without fail. Mark Greaney's sequel to "The Gray Man" picks up right where he left off as Court Gentry, a.k.a. 'the gray man', a.k.a. 'six' is left to fend for himself as a private contracted assassin. Gentry cannot rest on his laurels since his former employer-the CIA-has issued an SOS order, shoot on sight! Gentry has agreed to a very risky contract with his untrusting, Russian employer, but also agrees to an alternate deal with the CIA that would rescind his SOS order if he completes his mission successfully. Of course, everything goes haywire from the start and Gentry has to deal with all of it. If you are looking for a truly, cover-to-cover, action-packed thrill ride, start reading this series as it will not leave you disappointed. Suspense Magazine

Another non-stop thriller. “On Target” starts at 99MPH and just goes up from here. Moving from fight to fight the Gray Man does what he can to keep the good alive and deliver punishment to the evil. The book is well written allowing the reader to enjoy the action and without over complicating every move. I guess if I have to say something negative about the book it would be that the characters are a bit one dimensional and static, but that’s not why you read this book!
