It's got flashbacks to Vietnam and real-time drug cartel action. This book is highly rated by lots of people, but I like more emphasis on character development and less on torture by electrica ...more
The focus then shifts to Mexico and the drug cartels who effectively run everything. Gentry hears that an old friend has died at the hands of a cartel, which lea ...more
Gentry appears to be capable of superhuman feats and I can't get enough of him. This book, much like the others, is just non-stop, jaw-dropping action. In this story, after escaping a hit team in the Amazonian jungle he ends up in Mexico. Finding an ...more
This is an utterly enjoyable action series by Mark Greaney with an excellent narrator, Jay Snyder. A wonderful full action thriller with lots of great twists & turns and a lead character who tries to be such a tough guy but who really has a soft spot for the innocent & those in need.
I swear the author has me laughing, crying, cringing and ducking all at the same time. One of my favorite parts is when he finds himself alone with the female lead i ...more
This story takes a change from the militaristic, war on terror style of the first two novels and takes a look at what a highly trained assassin could do in a mexican gangland environment. Gentry finds himself thrown into a fight between the fa ...more
the autheor is a bit too patriotic i guess, the bad guys are nothing but that, bad guys. some specific vocabulary is used a bit repetitivly, like machismo, which gives a bit too strong atmosphere for the world.
a bit too cliched.
but an enjoyable gripping book. the thrills felt a tiny bit cheap, but they were there and they were good.
there were plenty of good surprises, scenes i'd remember this book by.

Do you have to be a sociopath to enjoy reading action/thrillers that are non-stop murder and mayhem? I hope not. As a retired peacenik hippie grandmother that lives at the beach, I can't get enough of The Gray Man.
In this third of the series, Court Gentry is coerced to work for a vicious Mexican drug lord. But Gentry's core value of innocent lives and allegiance to his friends is still his guiding compass, and compels him to execute his own plan for the drug lord.
The grey man is in hidding from the last 7 months avoiding any conflicts with anyone but that does not mean that most dangerous people in the world in not hunting for him and neither grey man in sitting idle. once hhis past shows up grey man is running up again and is ...more
The Gray Man does have a bit too much of a super hero stance, but he fails so often that Greaney illustrates him as human. Absolutely love the two views of The Gray Man. One is from the main character himself, who lays out his deep insecurities and concerns of his future. The other view is from everyone else which view him as everything fr ...more
The ending was amazing and am glad I decided to get to it. Made the book for me. For anyone out there who likes to read the end to see if they want to read the whole book, don't ...more

I really don't think I could love Court Gentry more than I do right now! That man is in major need of a hug and I would be more than happy to provide that. Court once again finds himself in danger of being killed, but this time, it's because he is trying to help the family of a slain friend. Instead of reading this, I listened to it on Audible, and found myself completely transported into the book. The bad part about this is that the torture scene was so ...more
Court ends up in Mexico, mixed up in a battle between drug cartels and trying to avenge his friend Eddie Gamboa, who was murdered by the Black Suits, one of the ruthless cartel ...more
"Ballistic" , the third novel in Mark Greaney's Gray Man series is a very good thriller , full of action from beginning to end, and fun to read, as long as you suspend credulity at times.
Beginning with rogue secret agent Court Gentry's Tarzan -like escape from a gang of hired assassins sent to find him in a remote Amazon village where Court has hidden himself, to the violent climax ending the book, there is hardly a quiet moment for Court, or the ...more
My only concern is that I'm on a budget and I used it all to buy his latest book. It's the most I've spent on an Ebook since getting my Kind ...more
In Ballistic Greaney takes us to Mexico, and shows the dark shadows of los amigos. I live in Europe, so the setting was exotic for me. The Ballistic is a work of fiction, and I'm pretty sure Greaney made up the Mafia characters, but based on the news sometimes I hear there must be some truth in the Mexican gang wars. It adds to the reliabi ...more
That said, Ballistic feels like catch up for some of the emotional development that could have easily taken place in the previous two bo ...more
But I will be continuing the series (so long as Overdrive and the Toronto Library) make them available electronically.
