"The Gray Man is back in another nonstop international thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels Court Gentry is back in action. This time he's working on behalf of a well-connected group of Syrian expats to secure the Syrian president's mistress so they can use her to bring down the president's regime. But the expats' plan goes awry when it's discovered the mistress has a baby--the Syrian president's only male heir--hidden away in a Damascus safe house. Court goes after the baby, a decision that comes at the price of the mistress's life. The expat organization deems the boy now useless to their cause and refuses to protect him against the Syrian first lady and the notorious Swiss assassin in her employ. With no support on the way, Court realizes he'll have to take down the Syrian president himself if he and the boy are going to make it out alive.."--… (mais)

Ho hum, Court's back in action, in a plan that keeps going awry.

I'm kidding. I absolutely love these books. What amazes me is the mileage Greaney gets out of his Gray Man character. He constantly finds new ways to challenge him, and place him in distinctly different situations, each as fun as the last.

Keep grinding out Gray Man stories, and I'll keep reading them! ( )

Fast-paced action reminiscent of the best Ludlum. First time reading a Gray Man novel. I might have had more at stake regarding whether or not the character survived if I'd read previous books in the series. Improbable combat scenes.Learned a lot about Syria which was both sad and interesting. Will probably look for earlier novels in the series. ( )

This is my first book in this series and I'm loving Gray Man. I wish I get to know him better that was one of the reason I didn't give 5 stars. The action was good and plot was right up my alley. It was a bit too long? I felt the middle section could have more concise and more added to the last five chapters. The ending was awesome but it felt rushed. Will be following this series. Fun read.

Better than the last one in this series, marginally... which means it was very good. Looking for the next one now ( )

3.5 stars.Agent in Place by Mark Greaney is an action packed spy novel starring ex-CIA black ops operative Court Gentry. Although this latest release is the seventh installment in the Gray Man series, it can be read as a standalone.

Court Gentry has repaired his relationship with the CIA but his latest case is a freelance job that takes him deep into the Syrian crisis. Gentry is thrust into danger when he is hired by Rima and Tarek  Halaby to kidnap Spanish model Bianca Medina while she is in Paris. Bianca is more than just a model; she is the mistress of Syrian President Ahmed al-Azzam. Barely escaping with their lives, Gentry delivers Bianca to the Halabys who try to convince him to continue working for them as they continue their efforts to end the civil war in Syria. Court initially refuses their request but once he learns that Bianca has a baby with al-Azzam who is being held hostage in Syria, he agrees to rescue the baby from the ruthless leader.  Will Gentry successfully complete his latest mission?

Gentry is essentially on his own as he goes undercover with a group of mercenaries in order to the border into Syria. Once he arrives in country, he runs into danger at every turn.  When Court uncovers information about the Syrian president that no one else is aware of, he and a handful of trusted cohorts undertake an almost impossible mission that could have major international repercussions if they successfully carry out their plan.

The plot is somewhat convoluted and despite plenty of action, the pacing is extremely slow. The cast of characters is plentiful and trying to keep track of each of them is a herculean task.  Everyone seems to have an agenda, no one is trustworthy and the situation in Syria is complex.   The good guys face an uphill battle as they are continually double crossed which leaves them facing incredibly dangerous situations.

Agent in Place features a topical storyline that is relevant to current political events occurring in Syria.  Court Gentry is a force to be reckoned with in this newest installment in Mark Greaney's Gray Man series. While not quite as enjoyable as previous novels in the series, old and new fans will enjoy this adrenaline-fueled adventure.Agent in Place by Mark Greaney is an action packed spy novel starring ex-CIA black ops operative Court Gentry.
