The Plot: Court Gentry is an assassin known as the Gray Man and he's very good at what he does. But his last job upset a lot of people, including the very powerful LaurentGroup. In order to save a billion dollar deal, they need Gentry's head. But they also know that to catch the Gray Man, they'll need all the help they can get. So they call in reinforcements and soon have ten strike force teams from all around the world hot on Gentry's tail. On the run, alone and injured, Gentry can't even trust his own handler to help him. In fact, everyone seems out to double cross him. But he's not the Gray Man for nothing.
My thoughts: This book reminded me of the Jason Bourne movies: lots of action and a high body count. It also has a main character I found easy to root for. Because despite his job, Court Gentry is a man with his own code of honor, who only hunts down the bad guys others can't touch, and who tries to do the right thing even when it puts his own life at risk. He also doesn't apologize for being good at his job. And he doesn't lose sleep over it either. He's the Gray Man. And I couldn't help but like him. There's also a cute eight-year-old girl named Claire in this one that I loved. All in all, this is a fun roller-coaster ride of a read that starts off fast and never loses speed; and I can't wait to check out the next one.
