From Mark Greaney, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels, comes the fifth explosive thriller featuring the lethal assassin known as the Gray Man…
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...

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 07, 2015 – In Greaney's rousing fifth Gray Man novel (after 2013's Dead Eye), ex-CIA operative Court Gentry returns to the U.S. after five years dodging the kill order that has followed him all over the world. He needs to know why Denny Carmichael, the director of the CIA's National Clandestine Service, issued the order; if Gentry has to leave a string of bodies behind him to get at the truth, then so be it. Gentry slowly ferrets out various official reasons for the original shoot-on-sight order, which stemmed from an early operation, Back Blast, when he supposedly went rogue and killed the wrong person while executing the op. Gentry is positive he's innocent, but the evidence continues to mount, until even he's no longer sure what happened. Greaney's unraveling of the Back Blast mystery is masterly, but it's the Gray Man's ability to outthink and outgun the scores of men who are hunting him throughout the streets of Washington, D.C., that will keep readers glued to the pages. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

Court is in session!!

A real thrill ride from front to back. Greaney made us wait for this one, but it was worth it, and then some. Let us all hope that the author can learn to write more as fast as we can read them! If you like Lee Child, Brad Thor, and dialog on par with John D. MacDonald, read this book!

Great great book

One of the best books I've read in a long long time.

Superb from beginning to end

As in each of Mark Greany's books he sets the hook quickly and takes you on a delicious ride. Great character development and story line. Makes you wish the book would just keep going, unlike. So many others you just want to finish.
