♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ The latest in the Gray Man series does not disappoint. I haven’t really been reading this year, which I hate, but there are only so many hours in the day. I’ve chosen other things this year. . . bucket list things, so a decent trade. However, my husband and I started this one just before we went on vacation. He loves the action and the gratuitous violence. I enjoy the action (but probably not the violence as much) and the story line. I thoroughly wallow in the depth of imagination and the art of story telling. Greaney’s Gray Man series, about an American (former CIA) assassin is well written. Every time I think that we’ve heard all there is, another awesome book comes out with a new twist and a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I say, “Just keep writing them Mark! My family will keep listening!”
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ This Gray man series has been a surprise. Mark Greaney, new to us author, has proven to be “on target” (sorry, puns are fun) when it comes to keeping us entertained. Always some sort of crazy twist, deception and lots of shooting when The Gray Man (an assassin) is involved. There’s some of what you don’t expect too. There are lines that this seemingly cold-blooded killer won’t cross, lows to which he will not stoop and triggers he just won’t pull. Though we know his brutality runs just below the surface, we cheer for him anyway. We love him, and better still, we like him. This is the second book in the series and it did not disappoint. Enjoy, but start with The Gray Man.
