    The rollercoaster I was on when reading this book cannot be explained. Just like watching a Christopher Nolan film in theaters this book has the suspense, punches, and punchlines to keep things moving and emotional. The attention to detail is the best part and really shows Greaney’s unique touch. I hope you have just as good a time as I had from beginning to end!

    Ballistic is my favorite so far. Fast paced, mostly believable and fewer “fill” segments than used by other series authors.
  • I’m very fond of ole Court

    By Deborah Lynn
    I am a middle aged white woman and he’s one of the top 10 fictional characters I like. :) The guns and stuff I just ignore, not knowing a Kalashnikov from a Glock, because the character is so well-written. Thanks Mark Greaney, for taking me out of my boring life for a few hours to go on adventures with Mr. Gray Man.

    I was drawn in from chapter 1 of the first book. This is fantastic reading. The action is fast paced and believable. I’m enjoying this series a lot.
  • Lovin’ Greaney’s Grey Man...

    By Ptvogelzang
    These ‘Grey Man’ novels are excellent, and ‘Ballistic ‘ is no exception! The action, pace and detailed writing make each one bingeable. The alligator scene in Ballistic is fantastic. Nuff said. You’ve got to read it to believe it.

    Great read. Action packed.
  • Mediocre

    Stupid people. Stupid plot. Stupid decisions. Gray man suddenly acts like an amateur. Glad this wasn’t the first Gray Man I read, or it would have been the only one I read.
