Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

Jay Snyder's narration can be pleasant and calming, but the inconsistencies such as after when he's taken a break are obvious. It was very annoying to repeatedly hear poorly pronounced French such as Bayeux and Citroen becoming Bayoo and Sitrowen,for example. These annoyances, amongst others, spoiled a thoroughly enjoyable book. Greaney has thoroughly researched his character's behaviour and weapons and provides highly detailed descriptions of environment and surroundings to the extent that one believes they are there with the Grey Man. Highly enjoyable. Book 2, 'On Target', awaits...

Marvellously atmospheric tale of strangers summoned to a grand but neglected villa on the Italian coast. Each of them has been named in a will, but nobody knows their benefactress.... Four very different people are named in a will. Delia, an opera singer robbed of her voice by illness; George, an idealistic scientist who cannot face what his skills have created; Marjorie, desperately poor and unable to dislodge her writer’s block; and Lucius, ostensibly in control but whose personal life is in chaos.

Relaxing, yet interesting tale.

Didn't want to switch it off, thoroughly relaxed yet keen to hear more. Wished it hadn't ended.
