Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

After he was betrayed by his compatriots and then forced to take on a near-suicidal covert mission by the CIA, master assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge off the grid, living in self-imposed isolation in the Amazonian rain forest. But even there, his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Without a country or a home to call his own, Court's options are narrow enough, but when he hears that an old friend has been murdered, he's compelled to pay his respects.

He arrives just days after his friend is buried.

Years before, Eddie Gamboa saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted, and ensuring the safety of Eddie's family is his only mission.

But in this war there are no sides--only survivors. And with both the law and the lawless out for his blood, Court's only option is to kill.and kill.and kill again.

   An Assassin has a Moral Struggle
It would have been a 4 star review score if the story had been lighter on violence and demonstrations of Gentry's abilities, as there is more introspection in this than previous Gray Man novels. There will be violence in the story of the drug trade in Mexico, but it will not be as bad as the action scenes make it look. I'm becoming a fan because the human emotion passages were well developed and flowed together in a common fashion.

   Never lets me down
Mark Greaney was at the checkout lane at the grocery store. I read the quick summary after flipping the cover over. I was so excited to read 1 and 2 in less than a month that I didn't have to wait for a new release that wouldn't come until the following year. He writes so well that I have a mental movie going and a page turner as well. It takes a certain kind of author and a certain kind of writer to get me to read it. He picks the brains of people that know things in every book that he writes. I am a huge fan of the Grey Man Series. Keep up the great work.

   Great character and story, but full of technical errors
Mark is a great story teller, but seriously, you really need to get a competent person to review and edit for spelling and technical accuracy. One passage talks about an electrical torture device shorting out. They are electrical shorts. They open when the fail and apply another break in the vehicle. The bad guy is jacking the collective left and right in a Eurocopter passage. That would be a cycle. The collective is in charge of the main blade pitch. The up- down- go faster stick is called collective by the helo pilots.

   Even better than the others!
I almost didn't read this book because Gray Man's humanity was missing. Maybe one day there would be hope of a happy ending, that's what I wanted to see. Greaney's books always win out, but that's not the same as a happy ending. I had come to the conclusion that this is one of those books where there will never be a love interest or a chance of him being reinstated in the USA as the wrongly accused good guy. I felt like this series was worth continuing after I saw a romantic crack in his robotic nature. Buying the next one hoping he gets back in good graces with his homeland and becomes a hero instead of a target.
