Description

Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest. But his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Court makes his way to one of the only men in the world he can trust - and arrives too late. His friend is dead and buried.

Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted. But in this war, there are no sides - only survivors....

Comparable to the first in this series

When I first read The Gray Man I was blown away. I thought I had found a "hero" comparable to Jack Reacher who has been very non-Reacher-like in recent Lee Child novels. Then I listened to the second in the series (On Target) and suspected that Mark Greaney and Child had been colluding to produce mediocrity. Well, Greaney redeemed himself with Ballistic. Enough said.

The Gray Man only slows down for Red Lights

Ready and action and more action - no cut here. Could not have been written or read any better. Absolutely ready for the next Gray Man Novel. If I had to wait 2 years I would still order it today. If you have read the other Gray Man novels then get ready to see his true resolve. This was a great book and I have already seen the movie thanks to the Mark Greaney painting the picture and Jay Snyder playing all the characters. Thanks guys...

There Aren't Enough Gray Man Novels

What made the experience of listening to Ballistic the most enjoyable?

Jay Snyder the narrator. Absolutely the best!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Court Gentry, the main character of the book. The obstacles he faces and how he tackles the challenges at any given moment.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

Mark Greaney continues to put out thrilling and riveting novels about the Gray Man. I hope he writes more. Court Gentry is a sensitive, strong and intense man and throughout the entire novel narrowly escapes impossible situations. Exciting.......

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nothing. Jay Snyder is one of the best narrators and will keep your attention throughout the entire book.

Any additional comments?

Mark Greaney and Jay Snyder are an incredible team.

Action Packed

Mark Greaney wrote a fast paced action packed story. Court Gentry seemed to go from one impossible to escape situation to another. It was exciting to listen to how he got out of each situation. Greaney description of modern day Mexico may be very accurate from other books I have read. Mexico appears to be reaping the harvest of centuries of corruption. The Gray mans travels through Latin America, Central America and Mexico was like an exciting travel guide. Jay Snyder did a good job reading the story. This book makes an nail biting escape from today's problems, story good for a boring commute.

An enjoyable Greaney

Would you listen to Ballistic again? Why?

I could, actually! It's nice and mindless, and I'll probably remember very little of it in a few days.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

He has a pleasing voice. The Gray Man sounds satisfyingly gray. Snyder's marvelous with voices, in my opinion.

Any additional comments?

Greaney has written another book that should do well. It’s the Gray Man vs the drug mafia. Court Gentry gets involved for all the right reasons: honor, payback, courage, etc. The action is well described in the first half of the book, not so well in the second half. The morbidity is a little more than I would have preferred, but the morbid passages are thankfully short. The romance is minimal, and is just right. Though I think the first two Gray Man books were better, I liked Ballistic, and was sorry when it was finally over. Gentry is almost superhuman in his skills, but one can enjoy the action after turning down one's intellectual thermostat. I’ve downloaded Locked On just to have another go at a Greaney. Jay Snyder is an excellent reader.

"I'm Not Trained" - ROFL

This is an utterly enjoyable action series by Mark Greaney with an excellent narrator, Jay Snyder. A wonderful full action thriller with lots of great twists & turns and a lead character who tries to be such a tough guy but who really has a soft spot for the innocent & those in need.

I swear the author has me laughing, crying, cringing and ducking all at the same time. One of my favorite parts is when he finds himself alone with the female lead in a compromising position and says "I'm not trained". Laughed myself silly.

I am looking very forward to future books in this series. Definitely in the top 5 authors I will keep an eye on.

Get this novel while it on sale for $4.95!

For those who have not listened to audiobooks in the Gray Man/Court Gentry series by Mark Greaney you are missing what is possibly the best espionage thriller series written by the author who is at the very top of his art. I listened to Ballistic almost 5 years ago but have not reviewed it until now. Ballistic is novel #3 in the 5 novel series. I strongly recommend all books in the Gray Man series. Back Blast, the February 2016 release, is in my opinion the best thriller released this year. Narration of all 5 novels is by Jay Snyder who is superb.

Not enough of a plot

I like and read all the grey man novels. This one has too many long dragging out fight scenes and simply not enough surprises or a good "make you guessing" plot. I casually read ballistic while working out but not with great passion or interest.

Reasonably Good Treaquel, but . . .

I don't know if the fault lies with the narrator, who's Spanish pronunciation was atrocious, or the producer/publisher who, quixotically, seemingly could not seem to find one person who had even heard the language speaking to review the work. The problem is that Snyder's pronunciation was so bad that I actually had trouble understanding what he was saying from time-to-time and it was bad enough at time to pull me out of the story.

Overall this was a pretty good book. Not as good as the first two. A little heavy handed on the machismo (or, as Snyder pronounces it, "makismo") and I think there were a few areas where Greaney departed enough from trade-craft to be distracting; but overall it was a good enough story to get me to purchase the next in the series.

Good for commuters

Loved it. This series has been awesome to listen to on my commute - give them a try if you like Lee Child or Tom Clancy.

Auch als Hörbuch nicht zu ertragen

nicht auszuhaltende Grausamkeit, Unglaubwürdigkeit und Plattitüden. Schade um Zeit und Geld. Der Autor ist für mich gestorben, wie die große Masse der in dieser Story auftauchenden Personen, ausgenommen natürlich der unsterbliche Held.

All top

Mark is writing like his old mentor Tom Clancy - all top plus a bit more young action
