Description

Court Gentry is caught between the Russian mafia and the CIA in this latest electrifying thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Gray Man series.

When you kick over a rock, you never know what's going to crawl out. 
 
Alex Velesky is about to discover that the hard way. He's stolen records from the Swiss bank that employs him, thinking that he'll uncover a criminal conspiracy. But he soon finds that he's tapped into the mother lode of corruption. Before he knows it, he's being hunted by everyone from the Russian mafia to the CIA. 
 
Court Gentry and his erstwhile lover, Zoya Zakharova, find themselves on opposites poles when it comes to Velesky. They both want him but for different reasons. 
 
That's a problem for tomorrow. Today they need to keep him and themselves alive. Right now, it's not looking good.

    wow gray man has gone woke . He is now no longer a superstar shot and planner but more of a bumbling fool who has to rely on a black pacifist CIA woman to save the day. I get it he is not a superhero but come on , losing 2 guns within seconds of each other and not having backup plans? and to top it all off supporting the Ukraine narrative of the democrats. Was this actually written by Mark or a ghost writer ? it seems to be way off his pervious works
  • One of the best so far

    This felt like Greaney phoned it in. Why not have Court go to Ukraine and tangle with the real bad guys? Velesky and Altman were weak characters. Just taking up space. The plot devices were lazy. Valesky could Fedex the phone to Altman. They could have met someplace other than his office. Altman has to go back to his office? Brewer just guesses it somehow? Luka happens to run into Alex and Zora? And every white American male is evil. I realize the author is cashing in big time, but must he go woke too? The pandering capitalization? The obvious bending over to what ends up being patronizing race pandering? The villains are forgettable. And even poor Zoya, who used to be a cold, sexy assassin is now a coked up alcoholic that hates the “African-American” superstar conscience of the CIA character — of course until Lacy saves her life. Realy Mark, is this the best you could do with the Ukraine war? A fight on a train and a fight in an airplane hanger covered in foam? Is Netflix really going to throw money away on this one too? Congrats on your luxury travel to St Lucia, Milan and NYC. I guess that’s a whole lot better than hanging out in Kiev or ‘Donbas to see what it’s like. So, you’ve kind of exploited what’s going on in Ukraine as you dine in luxury hotels in major cities “researching” this lazy book. But the crazy thing is, I’ll buy the next one too and find out if Zoya gets off the drugs. Shame on me.
  • BEST ONE YET

    I’ve read every Grayman book. The pacing and detail of Burner is outstanding, the best of the best. Can’t wait to see what happens to the new couple. Keep them coming Mark. I’m a huge fan.

    Oh MY Goodness- what a tremendous book- one of the best three books I have ever read. The two others are Point of Impact by Steven Hunter and Red Metal by this author Mark Greaney.
