From Mark Greaney, the New York Times bestselling author of Gunmetal Gray and a coauthor of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, comes a high-stakes thriller featuring the world's most dangerous assassin: the Gray Man.

Court Gentry's flight on a CIA transport plane is interrupted when a security team brings a hooded man aboard. They want to kick Gentry off the flight but are overruled by CIA headquarters. The mystery man is being transported to England where a joint CIA/MI6 team will interrogate him about a mole in Langley.

When they land in an isolated airbase in the U.K., they are attacked by a hostile force who kidnaps the prisoner. Only Gentry escapes. His handlers send him after the attackers, but what can one operative do against a trained team of assassins? A lot, when that operative is the Gray Man.

    Started off strong but then just meandered into stupidville. The entire premise for the villain, whose “logic” swings back and forth between silly and inconsistent, is better suited for an Austin Powers movie. About 60% through I found myself skipping pages over and over, until finally, at what presumably was the action packed climax, I found myself so bored with it that could care less what happened. Come on author, put a little effort into it, or price it for the silly pulp fiction it is. And this is from someone who enjoyed some of your earlier efforts...

    Not at all worth it and I have read and enjoyed all his other books. Was difficult to get involved with the story

    Another great gray man novel. All eight books have been terrific. Mr. Greaney sir; please keep Zack and Zoya in future writings. The three of them make a great team.

    Explosive read out of the gate. The Gray Man in ‘Mission Critical’ does not disappoint. A nice change to read Court’s physical prowess being truly tested by Hines. Strong woman in Zoya. Hopefully future escapades of The Gray Man will include from time to time Zoya and Zach. Great work again Mark Greaney.
