I received this book as a giveaway sponsored by Berkley. I had requested this book because I knew that 2 of my sons would love the book because they've enjoyed the Tom Clancy books that Mr. Greaney co-wrote. Because I won I felt I needed to review before giving to my sons. I'm so glad I did because while this genre is not something I've typically enjoyed this book has made me reconsider - I will definitely be reading the rest of the series and will be only letting my sons borrow rather than keep the book.

Agent in Place is the 7th in the series but I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading the previous books. I knew there were things mentioned from previous books in the series but not knowing the backstory didn't affect my enjoyment in the least.

In this book Court Gentry is a contractor assigned to kidnap the mistress of a Syrian dictator who knows something that could destabilize the government. What seems like an easy assignment is complicated when it's found that the mistress is also the mother of the only boy-child of the dictator. What follows is a book whose action scene are so well-written, with characters who were given such life that I could hear the French accent of the police detective and began to feel my claustrophobia soar as Greaney describes Gentry traveling in the military vehicle (don't ever want to get in one of those). Story kept going all the way to the end of the book.

"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.."--… (more)
