Description

From Mark Greaney, The New York Times best-selling 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 UK, 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.

Superb!! Mark Greaney is at the top of his game!

For me the best espionage thriller author of all time is Vince Flynn. Flynn died far too early almost six years ago. Mark Greaney and Ben Coes have both arrived at the same level as Vince Flynn. MISSION CRITICAL is the 8th novel in Greaney's Gray Man/Court Gentry series. (British author Tom Wood with his Victor the Assassin series probably deserves to be on the short list.) If one's genre of choice is mystery/thriller this novel is a must listen; espionage thrillers simply do not get better than this. Greaney is a master whether writing novels in his Gray Man series or in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series. As usual Jay Snyder narrates superbly. I wish all audio books had publisher's summaries as well done as the one for Mission Critical. It sets up the plot beautifully without any spoilers. Shelley of Raleigh NC writes the very best mystery/thriller reviews. They are easy to find because they are almost always first in the review list for any book. For a complete review of Mission Critical read her review.

Greaney at his Best (with Jay Snyder)!!!!

Once again Mark Greaney has pulled another rabbit out and has written another outstanding book. This book takes off with a literal bang Ok, maybe two bangs! When Court Gentry catches a ride on a Gulf Stream belonging to the CIA he's told there will be a slight detour. Other operatives will be boarding with a prisoner. They will be dropped off at another location and then Court will be taken to DC. The plane is attacked at the second location, all operatives are killed and the prisoner is abducted. Only an injured flight attendant and Court are still alive. Court goes after the bad guys. Meanwhile, in Washington, a safe house has been targeted by the same group for destruction. What the group didn't know was that a former Russian operative that Court brought in was staying there. That was two books ago in Gunmetal Gray. The operative is Zoya and she's almost as good as Court. All of this takes place in about the first 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Court is chasing killers in Britain. Zoya has believed for the past 14 years that her father is dead. After Suzanna Brewer shows her pictures of the scene of her father's death, Zoya realizes they are staged. She believes he's still alive. Her search takes her to Britain. After many months of not seeing each other Court and Zoya's paths collide ... This book is so fast paced with not a single dull moment. No wasted words, no lulls or fillers. I hang on each word and was only sorry when it was over. This is a rare book in that I will probably listen to it again! This book is an EXCELLENT addition to the Gray Man series and has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!! Jay Snyder is the voice of Court Gentry and I truly hope he continues to do this series. He does an outstanding job narrating as always. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Starts off slow but eventually picks up to a good.

Picks up at the end. Whole book should have been like the end for quality.

The Gray Man is back!

Wild ride from start to finish. Don't even start unless you have the day to kill. Mark Greaney is the very best in this genre bar none and Jay Snyder delivers each line and accent to perfection. I love all the Gray Man books but this may well be my favorite.

Good story line but very detailed .

A Lot of the story explains various guns in detail and if you don't know anything about them you get lost in the words.

It’s alright

It’s okay but it’s not as good as the other Grey Man-books. Not sure if it got too wrapped up in the relationship stuff or if there was just too many slow and unnecessary parts that could have been skipped over or related some other way because it doesn’t add tension or drive the plot forward. There was a lot of stuff about the Korean scientist, a lot of build up. The good thing about the other books is that stuff just happens and keeps happening and then it accelerates even more and then it’s over. There was a really big fighting dude and the parts with him reminded me of the cave troll in the Lord of the Rings movies. That cave troll fight wasn’t enjoyable and would just never end. I’m rambling but anyway, like I said, good but not great, and I’ve loved the other books. Read it if you’re invested in the series and want to know what happens to the characters. If you’re not, probably skip this one.

Gripping

I have read this series from the beginning. I got hooked on the series with book one and it has become one of my favorites. The book is well written and is packed with continuous action. Greaney grabbed my attention right at the beginning of the story and held it throughout. Court Gentry is the Grey Man and now is a contractor with the CIA instead of an employee. I enjoyed getting together with the regular characters and meeting some new ones. Sometimes the continuous action exhausted me, but I just could not put the book down. I cannot wait for the next Grey Man story. The book is seventeen hours. Jay Snyder does an excellent job narrating the story. Snyder has been the narrator from the beginning of the series. I like it when they keep the same narrator throughout the series.

Ok

I had hoped for a storyline that was more gray man focused it, But unfortunately it seems like the side story became the main story

Excellent book and awesome narration..

Boo-hoo! Another great read in the Gray Man series bites the dust. And I loved it. But, boy! This time Court got the hell beat out of him twice by Jon Hines, a 6’9 giant monster, almost 3 times, if Court hadn’t finally given him all that he deserved. There was so much excitement and killing in this I couldn’t even begin to guess how many died. Good guys and bad. And I liked that Court had a little romance, everything off-screen, with Zoya, but I thought it was a little silly why she was so angry with him, clear up until the end. And the F-bomb was used 118 times. And, I was glad to see Hightower again. He had some good and funny lines. As for Suzanne, yeah, I don’t get that at all! Why the hell Hanley didn’t send Hightower after her instead of having her keep her job is beyond me. Anyway, I do look forward to the next Gray Man book, whenever that might be. As to the narration: Jay Snyder is a wonderful narrator. His voices for everyone are just awesome!

Story ok but background noises terrible

Story ist quite ok. But no division of text into sub chapters. Listening requires more than the usual attention due to sudden changes of scenes and characters several times in the middle of too long chapters. And the Speaker makes strange breathing sounds every couple of minutes. To top this in the background is something continuously running like an old mechanic alarm clock. sounds like the studio equipment had a major problem. So I had to turn up the volume to ged rid of this. I will go for a refund. Thomas

Bloody genius!

I’m just over 50% now but it is getting better and better! Listening to each book twice and it still is high in suspense. Just saying “I’m running Sir Roy Fitzgerald as a technical assest!” Just great!

Spannend aber konstruiert

Die Spannungsbögen sind überzogen und der Held ist zwar verwundbar aber auch mit einer gebrochenen linken Hand letztlich unbezwingbar. Gut und Böse sind sauber verteilt und insofern politisch korrekt, als der personifizierte Bösewicht eben eine Person ist, auch wenn sie aus dem dunklen Russland und die helfende Hand aus Nordkorea kommt. Ich habe trotzdem bis zum Schluss gelauscht.
