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...


  • Tier 1 Spy Thriller

    By GpReviews
    From the very start this story starts off with a bang and the plot escalates with every chapter. Courtland Gentry, the lone wolf rogue agent has thrown himself into the spiders web by returning to Washington D.C. to finish the years long manhunt his former CIA employers have conducted on his own terms. Armed with nothing but his own wits, training and determination and outnumbered and outgunned, if the Gray Man is going down it won't be without one hell of a fight. The story features excellent intrigue, characters, and a high stakes narrative. Though part of an ongoing series you can pick this up and start reading with no worries, as the author does a great job of explaining the events of previous books seamlessly in the narrative. A really interesting examination of international spy politics and the modern use of surveillance technology. Readers will have trouble stepping away from the story as their is constantly some new thread to follow on the protagonist's hunt for redemption and the truth. Fans of Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, and Brad Thor will want to add Mark Greaney to their reading list and Back Blast is a perfect place to start.

    Super Storyteller, wonderful characters.
  • Pretty Good But...

    Action packed but there were times when I thought Court Gentry came Krypton and not some small town in Florida. Occasionally a little over the top.

    By Domino's nice app
    A great read from start to finish. No spoilers here but Court makes quite an impression on the spooks in DC.
