Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness.

Now, he is going to prove that for him, there is no gray area between killing for a living - and killing to stay alive.

    An "Outstanding" read, grabs your attention from page 1 and never lets go.

    An interesting thriller somewhat in the Tom Clancy mode but not quite as compelling. I'd still recommend it for a long plane ride.

    Truly awful. Stereotypical characters who are completely unbelievable. Also written by an author who thinks that Luanda is the capital of Botswana!. Cant even get basic geography right. Also having worked in Botswana, the idea that this country of peaceful herders with a nominal defense force could produce a hit team is completely laughable. If this is what constitutes a best seller I need to quit my day job and start writing crap like this.

    By far the best thriller I have read ! Scott Harvath and Mitch Rapp can't touch Gentry . Hands down baddest character out there!

    and what a thrill ride it was. Although this is his first "solo" book...see Tom Clancy, Mark has to be the one that put the Clancy Thrill back into Clancy. I first read this book, like to read the author's first book...less expensive and let's me determine if I like the style. I quickly read all three, wish there were more, but I am certain if he continues to put his creative skill, takes his time to please himself and not the publisher... He can keep me going for years to come. I realize that the pressure is on-- from readers, publisher, and others-- as well as the financial rewards-- to write quickly. But, I think back to the one a year (approx.) of Robert Ludlum. (I) knew within the first half-page that his story was going to be a great ride. Mark has created a character that is up there with Jason Bourne. (I am not a paid spokesperson for Mark--nor a friend or person to gain from his success) I just believe that when I receive good service...I tip well. Mark, you gave me Fantastic Enjoyment, and you deserve your own special place in the spot light.
  • Awesome!

    Fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor books will find a lot to like in this thriller. The Grey Man is an intriguing character, the international locations are used well, and the plot is basic but well constructed. I look forward to reading more from this author.
