Number one New York Times bestselling author of Gunmetal Gray, Mark Greaney, is back with another must-read Gray Man novel. If you're a fan of Tom Clancy novels, Greaney's style of writing is right up your alley. And if you enjoy a fast-paced thriller, this book is definitely for you.
Greaney's latest installment, Agent in Place, is yet another page-turning thriller in a series that has reaped praise from The Washington Post, Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and The Real Book Spy.
The story continues to focus on the character of Court Gentry. Gentry is back after his first mission with the Central Intelligence Agency and finds himself a new contract job that is pretty straightforward: he must kidnap the mistress of Syrian dictator Ahmed Azzam to gain vital intel that can lead to the regime's downfall.
However, Gentry's mission becomes even more challenging after he gets the dictator's mistress, Bianca Medina, to the rebels who hired him. The mistress has given birth to a son, the only family next in line to be the dictator's successor.
Gentry must then take on a daring new mission: get Bianca's son out of Syria and return him safely to her to not only save her and the child's life, but to topple a brutal regime.
Here's what reviewers are saying about Greaney's latest work:
Readers of the great Tom Clancy will salivate over this fast-moving and well-plotted yarn, which is part of a consistently appealing series in which each assignment is billed as the most dangerous ever. Somehow, Greaney cranks out one winner after another. That's a lot of work for the Gray Man and plenty of pleasure for thriller fans.
- Kirkus Reviews
Greaney's steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can't-miss.
- Publisher's Weekly
Greaney, whose degree is in international relations and political science, knows his stuff. To write these novels, he has traveled to 15 different countries and has spent time training with members of the military and law enforcement in "firearms, battlefield medicine, and close-range combative tactics."
