    A page turner. Little disappointed with the convenient way Courts love interest was handled - but then again it's not a romance novel! Can Court's "luck" keep holding out? Since there's a couple more books in the series my guess is it must.

    Half Bourne, half Reacher, and half Chris Kyle - this book blends vengeance p*rn with the special forces uberman meme we’ve been soaking up since Abbottabad. And as such it’s a nice change of pace. But it suffers from both fast writing and destined-for-electronic editing - eg sloppy. But what the hey - we’re all wrigting that way now, so how can we complain? And it is a rollicking tale with more twists than a sidewinder and bad guys painted with a roller. I downloaded it before a cross-country business trip - read it exclusively on airplanes (on an iPhone no less) and it was just the ticket.

    When a well know author selects a courtier (I've) wondered why. Was it due to publishing deadlines; to crank out some lesser work but utilized the big name to sell the book; or, the big guy painted the broad strokes and left the real writing to the coauthor. I read the Grey Man and became instantly hooked! I've now read Mark's three books and have enjoyed each. To the point... That if he doesn't come out with another soon ( no pressure Mark, take your time and write like you have been-- don't sell out for the fame or money-- do it for YOURSELF and for you READERS. When I read James Rollins endorsement, I knew you were good-- but was shocked with just how good you are. You have created a Character that is up there...if not better than Ludlum's Jason. Thank you for the wild rides. For those new to Mark...definitely read The Gray Man first.
  • Ballistic rocks!

    This is the first book that actually made me jump at one point! The action was so visceral and intense I literally jumped as I read it. The book is unpredictable and absolutely entertaining. It leaves you pining for more. Looking forward to the next installment. Get the book...read it...tell your friends about it!
