Crime lords, drug cartels, government corruption and shootouts make Greaney’s newest Gray Man novel a fun, fast, edge-of-your-seat read. Court Gentry is the Gray Man, a lethal yet human hero that readers will cheer on throughout his many brushes with danger. His tough-as-nails personality makes him a cold and deadly enemy. But he's also a helpful friend. And, unlike many action heroes, Greaney’s protagonist isn’t perfect. He’s able to admit his faults and even scream when attacked by a 16-foot crocodile. The Gray Man is a spy that readers can relate to — even though he is incredibly deadly.

Hunted by both the CIA and a Russian crime lord, Court Gentry, aka the Gray Man, is a spy living his life on the run and off the grid. However when Court's old friend Eddie is killed by a ruthless drug lord nicknamed DLR, Court has no choice but to pay his respects to the family — and offer up his assistance and skills to protect Eddie’s sister and wife.
