Court Gentry was the CIA's best agent. Until the day the Agency turned against him and put out a kill on sight order. That's when the enigmatic international assassin called the Gray Man was born--and Court has been working for himself ever since

Now, Court is back in Washington looking for answers. He's determined to find out what happened all those years ago that made the Agency turn against him. On his list to interrogate are his former partners and the men who sent him on his last mission. What he doesn't realize is that the questions that arose from that mission are still reverberating in the U.S. intelligence community, and he's stumbled onto a secret that powerful people want kept under wraps. And now, they have Court in their crosshairs.

Court Gentry is used to having people on his trail, but this time, it's on U.S. soil--the last place he wants to be. Now, he'll have to find the answers to his fate while evading capture…and avoiding death

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.

Three can keep a secret, if two are dead.
