New York Times bestselling author Mark Greaney spins another tale of propulsive action and stunning deception in the latest high-stakes thriller featuring the world’s most dangerous assassin: the Gray Man.

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 at an isolated airbase in the UK, 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.

Story Locale: London, Scotland

Series Overview: Court Gentry was one of the world’s top assassins, until he was betrayed and cut loose. Now he’s known as the Gray Man—and making a living means other people dying.

LATEST REPRINT IN THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES: The seventh Gray Man book, Agent in Place, debuted at #10 on the New York Times hardcover fiction list and the previous entry, Gunmetal Gray, hit at #11 with more than 50,000 copies in print. His first hardcover, Back Blast, was also a national bestseller hitting #16 on the Bookscan bestseller list, #14 on the Publishers Weekly list, and #38 on the USA Today list, with more than 50,000 copies in print

GREANEY’S NUMBERS ARE EXPLODING: First week’s sales for Agent in Place are up 28% from Gunmetal Gray, which was up 26% from Back Blast

IN GOOD COMPANY: Mark Greaney is a #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of three books with Tom Clancy and, after Clancy’s death, wrote four more books in the Jack Ryan series on his own

A GRAY MAN MOVIE IS IN THE WORKS: Sony owns the rights and is currently looking for a director

“BOURNE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM.”—New York Times bestselling author James Rollins

Praise for Mission Critical

“This novel is vintage Greaney, with a tight plot, a ticking clock, and a sympathetic antihero…This is good, Clancy-esque entertainment. May the evildoers of the world have nightmares that Violator becomes a real person.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Greaney knows what military action fans want and delivers in spades.”—Publishers Weekly

“Mesmerizing…Equal parts revenge drama and conspiracy tale, Mission Critical combines the best of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Greaney has fashioned a masterpiece of an action thriller, mixed with deep-seated global politics, placing him on level footing with the likes of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn.”—Providence Journal

“The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

Praise for Agent in Place

“Reminiscent of John le Carré…Exquisite in its execution, the relentlessly riveting, “Agent in Place” firmly plants Greaney alongside Brad Taylor and Brad Thor as the masters of this thriller subgenre.”—Providence Journal

“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 vicarious pleasure for thriller fans.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“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.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Gunmetal Gray


“Fans of RPG, Hong Kong action films, and high-octane storytelling will love the Gray Man, who battles full-bore through this fast-paced series.”—The Washington Post
