Through the carnage, Gentry remains an intriguing protagonist with his own moral code. Comparisons will be made to Jason Bourne, but the Gray Man is his own character. The ending screams for a sequel, but it will be difficult to maintain the intensity level of this impressive debut.
Hard, fast, and unflinching--exactly what a thriller should be.
Here is a debut novel like a well-honed dagger: sharp, merciless, and deadly. Mark Greaney's The Gray Man is Bourne for the new millennium.
Writing as smooth as stainless steel and a hero as mean as razor wire The Gray Man glitters like a blade in an alley.
A high-octane thriller that doesn't pause for more than a second. For readers looking for a thriller where the action comes fast and furious, this is the ticket.
[A] fast-paced, fun debut thriller.
