This is the sixth in Mark Greaney’s Gray Man series. I have to admit that I am a bit out of sequence in reading them…not sure how I got here. The Gray Man is by reputation the most accomplished assassin in the world. Called the Gray Man because, as an “average” man, he blends into the background until he kills you. Trained then abandoned by the CIA, he uses his skills for contract work.
In Gunmetal Gray, he has to find and either kill or rescue a Chinese defector. The world’s powers either want this man death or to interrogate him for his secrets and abilities.
Back Blast is the fifth in the Gray Man series about a former black ops “soldier” who for some reason the United States’ intelligence leadership wants eliminated. With the threat of terminate-on-site hanging over his head, he does the only logical thing…he returns to America to face the threat and find out why his life is threatened. You would think that his enemies would be thrilled about his return to the states, but they know that the Gray Man is the best at his craft and that craft is gathering intelligence and killing.
Court Gentry is known as the Gray Man, a legend in the covert world in which he was employed to do the bidding of his country. Few have seen him and most who have are no longer alive to tell about it. When he outlives his usefulness to his handlers, he is forced to use his skill to kill and evade in order to survive. And he is a survivor!
