More of the big dumb fun that we got in the first book. What's not to love? ( )

This book was way outside my usual area of interest but recommended by a friend. I really have no basis for comparison to use to judge it as a novel in this genre. Some of the characters were fairly well drawn and there seemed to be a tremendous amount of detail about weapons and motorized vehicles but the plot was very predictable. ( )

The Gray Man is a former CIA-operative for a special assassin squad (The Goon Squad). For a reason unknown he was marked for elimination and he is on the run with a CIA shoot on site order.

Book 2 in the series. Working now for a crazy Russian handler he is given a job to kill Sudan’s President Abboud (which is a follow-up to book 1). Although this time one of his former CIA Goon Squad team mates corners him and offers an alternate job to kidnap President Abboud so he can be turned over to the World Court to face Dafour genocide crimes and the job will also remove the CIA shoot-on-site order on the Gray Man.

What can go wrong on the mission does go wrong. But while waiting to turn over the President to the squad Abboud talks about how he will be released and not face the Court for his crimes and that to kill him would create even more chaos in Dafur with war between the Chinese and the Russians n Sudan. However, because so much has gone wrong on the mission the CIA orders The Gray Man to kill Abboud and he refuses. This infuriates the CIA mission chief and he places a stronger kill order on The Gray Man. ( )

Bit of politicking going on - the author expresses his opinion of some Middle Eastern nations/policies/politics - and sometimes peoples' behaviors just don't make sense (ie... some nomads just murdered some of your party and tried to kill you, but they got shot and you survived - so then you want to "save them" when doing so will jeopardize yourself? naw... doesn't matter how goody-two-shoes you are, someone murders half your party, you're going to take your chance to run, not try to save those murderers who haven't died from their gunshot wounds yet).

I didn't find it as far-fetched as the first book was - of course it's over the top and only James Bond could do better (but only because he would have managed to bed the chick when Gentry did not) - but if you liked the Grey Man, you'll like this one at least as much. I liked it better because the premise made more sense than the first - it's logical that people would want a dictator removed and that they'd hire an assassin to do so.

The "battle" during and after kidnapping of the president went on WAY too long - I know it's an action book but the pacing was off - the first 2/3 covers a lot of ground, different scenes and stuff going on, but then most of the last 1/3 of the book is spent on one long drawn out fight scene - no more plot, just bullets and chasing and bleeding and more bullets and chasing and bleeding...
