Back Blast (Gray Man) Reviews
3 mal The Gray Man in einer Woche ... ja die Bücher wurden verschlungen. Aber dieser war bisher der Beste. Bestechend logisch durchdacht. Überraschende Aufklärung und natürlich fast packed action!
A page turner! Having enjoyed the plots of the gray man 3 books long this one still pushed forward the thrill. No spoiler so. Just read and enjoy and: fasten your seatbelt
I have been waiting for this book for some time. A techno thriller with a badass hero. That was the easy bit to write but the author carries on with background to make this superman seem normal and vulnerable at the same time. The scene with his father was a masterpiece. Maybe the best mechanism of writing was they way most of the characters has a grey side i.e not all black and white. Well written!
There is viscous action and gripping suspense on every page.Five years ago Court Gentry (Gray Man) was betrayed in a CIA operation and set up for assassination by his own organization.Court's nemesis is Denny Carmichael, who has become the CIA Director of the National Clandestine Service (formerly called Operations), the directorate that deploys action teams from its Special Activities Division (SAD). Carmichael is now the most powerful person in the Agency, and he goes all out to cover up his past duplicity by killing Court.Desperate and unable to tap his own SAD people without giving away his secrets, Carmichael illegally engages foreign agents along with unknowing JSOC personnel to take out Gentry. This full-court press requires Court to bring all his skills to bear in trying to survive and put things right.As always, Greaney's writing is flawless. His works have all had several intriguing, intertwined subplots and numerous characters; but this one has subtle reminders along the way to make it very easy to follow. And there's a searchable description of the main players.Finally, this novel is not just a sequel but a fully stand-alone book.
Wow! I'm new to the Gray Man series and just finished reading all 5 books back to back. I am an avid reader of Thor, Flynn(Mills), Ben Coes, Marc Cameron and many many others in this genre. This author and series is by far the BEST. The action is non-stop at a break neck pace. The Gray Man, Court Gentry, is a "good guy" in a world where he is constantly up against nothing but bad. He's has been on the run from the CIA for 5 years, due to the "shoot on site" order the Director of NCS gets signed by the President. The thing is, he really DOES NOT know what he did to get into this situation. He followed orders, did his job well, actually was the best employee anyone could ask for. His reward? To have his own team at the CIA sent to terminate him. So, he runs for his life, and in the process becomes the "Gray Man". Court's skills make him the best, highly paid assassin in the business. He works all over the world, and along the way, he makes enemies, like the CIA, who want to kill him.Now, he has enemies everywhere and he is constantly hiding, watching over his shoulder and can never rest.What makes him so special? He not only is the best assassin in the world, he also only takes on jobs where he knows he is ridding the world of truly awful people. He does the right thing. Even through 5 years of hell, hiding out in 3rd world countries from everyone who's after him, he remains fiercely loyal to the United States. He is a patriot and really wants nothing more than to go "home" to the US AND to get answers as to why the CIA wants him dead. In this, the 5th book in the Gray Man series, he finally gets those answers.These books are so well written, the ideas that Mark Greaney come up, both that get Gentry into trouble, and the way he gets himself out, with are beyond heat pounding. Waiting for the next phase of what Court Gentry's life becomes is going to be like torture to this fan. Although, there is one thing that will make waiting for the next book bearable, the new book will be released on Feb. 21, 2017, my next birthday.
This is a singleton-spy versus scores of agents from “action-oriented” Washington acronym-agencies, plus covert stateside military assets.This is my first Gray Man novel which I enjoyed overall, and I will be looking at other books in this series. The writing is very good although overly descriptive in places; the plot-driven storyline is satisfyingly complex; the primary and secondary characters well-drawn.That said, at times the action—especially toward the end—swerved into realms of the fantastic, and the protagonist became a superhero. I’m thinking a combination of Bond, Bourne and maybe John Wick. The author is following in the footsteps of Ludlum, Trevanian, Lustbader & Clancy, so I’m guessing that superhuman protagonists are de rigueur for this genre.I was of two minds about rating this book. It wasn’t a 3 Stars book but really 3.5. Since I enjoyed reading most (>3/4) of this book, it’s 4 Stars.
