Five years ago, Court Gentry was the CIA's best covert asset. Then, without warning, his masters at the Agency put him at the top of their kill list. Court fled his country and became an enigmatic killer for hire known as the Gray Man.

Determined to find out what made the Agency turn against him, he plans to get his hands on the men who sent him on his last mission, Operation BACK BLAST. What he doesn't realize is that the questions that arose from his time as an American assassin are still reverberating in the U.S. intelligence community, and he's stumbled onto a secret that powerful people want kept under wraps.

The result: everyone has Court in their crosshairs...

I thought I was finished with spy novels and decided on the spur of the moment to give this one a try. Once I picked the book up I could not put it down. I set a personal record in reading this incredible story, great spy mystery kept me wanting more. I will definitely keep this author amongst my favourites, has me hooked on spy novels again.

This book was extremely wordy. Author could have said in 200-250 pages what he said in over 500 pages, it would have been a better book. I got lost several times and I believe the author did, also. Like Greaney but think this book need a stronger edit.

The book was good once you waded through the excessive filler which I eventually skipped over mostly !

Greaney would have had a better read if he left out the 100 pages of filler. The story carries itself without the filler. I hope he's not loading it to satisfy his publisher.
