Thank you to the Publisher, Berkley, for gifting me a beautiful finished copy of Mission Critical by Mark Greaney to read and share my review with others.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Court Gentry’s flight on a CIA transport plane is interrupted when a security team brings a hooded man aboard. They want to kick Gentry off the flight but are overruled by CIA headquarters. The mystery man is being transported to England where a joint CIA/MI6 team will interrogate him about a mole in Langley.
When they land in an isolated airbase in the U.K., they are attacked by a hostile force who kidnaps the prisoner. Only Gentry escapes. His handlers send him after the attackers, but what can one operative do against a trained team of assassins? A lot, when that operative is the Gray Man.
Wow! What a ride! A brilliantly written, fast-paced, action-filled novel that will have you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride! A nail-biter of a book, this will not disappoint you.
This was the first book by Mark Greaney that I have read and it definitely will not be my last! Mission Critical is book #8 in the Gray Man series, but can easily be read as a standalone novel. I had no trouble keeping up with what was going or or keeping up with the various characters However, I am now interested in checking out other books in this series to get more background information on all the main characters, especially the Gray Man himself.
The Gray Man, also known as Court Gentry, is one badass operative. He is ruthless, dangerous, and the best at what he does. He has to be, of course, since he is the world’s most famous assassin. You wouldn’t want to cross paths with him or get on his bad side, that’s for sure. I loved his character. He was witty, smart, and despite being an assassin I found him to be quite an interesting character.
I enjoyed the edge of your seat ride this book takes you on, and leaves you wanting more as you read chapter after chapter. This book will pull you in and demand your attention the entire way through to the very last page!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
