The Gray Man(Court Gentry #1)by Mark Greaney

From Publishers Weekly

In Greaney’s fast-paced, fun debut thriller, Court The Gray Man Gentry, a former CIA operative now renowned as the ultimate killer for hire, is on the job in Syria and Iraq. To his shock, he learns that a team sent in to rescue him now has him targeted for elimination. On the run, Gentry slowly realizes that huge forces are marshaling against him, from his former government to the one man in England he always trusted. With unbelievable powers of survival, the Gray Man eludes teams of killers and deadly traps, while the reader begins to cheer for this unlikely hero. Cinematic battles and escapes fill out the simplistic but satisfying plot, and Greaney deftly provides small details to show Gentry’s human side, offset by the petty rivalries and greed of his enemies.

Review –
This was a free audio book ,otherwise I wouldn’t have given it a second thought. I don’t like CIA,spy stuff, etc but free is free so I gave it a try.I’m glad I did because it was very good. The plot was strong, the characters well-developed and the narrator was awesome. I have found another series to follow and I can’t believe it’s about spies and covert operations but, what can I say, a good book is a good book, no matter the subject.
