    Freaking bad ass book. My favorite Gray Man so far! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The one thing I have to say for the author is that you just do not have time to become bored reading his stories. There’s always plenty of action and the fast pace makes for an incredible story. One Minute Out is a race against time, literally. The story is a heartbreaking nod towards what we see in the headlines every day. Sex trafficking is at an all-time high which is very sad thing to say in this day and age.

The story is a heartbreaking nod towards what we see in the headlines every day. Sex trafficking is at an all-time high which is very sad thing to say in this day and age. In One Minute Out, Greaney and the Gray Man take on a huge sex trafficking conglomeration and the story has us running all over Europe and ending in America. Packed with his signature bad ass moves, the Gray Man goes after his target on a wing and a prayer. This is one story you simply don’t want to put down. And the explosive ending is definitely a show stopper! Greaney brings us intensity, grit, with plenty of military-like action in his traditional style. But we also get a look into the sex trafficking industry that will make your stomach roll, tears your heart out a bit, and begs you to question when and how will they truly make it stop. Not to be missed! *copy received for review consideration Full Review - https://amidlifewife.com/one-minute-o...

    Another solid Gray Man novel. When is the Gray Man movie coming out? There really should be one! Don’t tell anyone, but I love a good spy thriller! More thoughts to come.

It always catches me from the very beginning and keeps my adrenaline pumping until the end. How in the world can you just not LOVE Court Gentry? Talk about your conflicted hero/MC. Man, he is the ultimate bad guy (he IS an assassin) who is really such a good guy. As he says in this book, "I only kill bad people". Like I said, how can you just not adore him??? But, gotta get back to the book....I'm alternating between listening AND reading and I must say that Jay Snyder just nails the narration for me. I mean, he really IS Court Gentry for me. Without looking at where I am in the book, I can only say that my heart rate is climbing....man oh man...I LOVE this series!!!!

Book 9 of the Gray Man series, One Minute Out (Berkeley 2020) is one of the best yet. Gentry has a storied career, first with the CIA, then on the run from a CIA kill order, and now doing jobs for hire or for the agency when they want consummate deniability. This particular job, Gentry is to kill a very bad guy (he will only kill the worst of the worst--never as an assassin) for a private client. He does that but finds out that this very bad guy is part of a pipeline that traffics underage and young girls for sex all over the world. Gentry should walk away, job completed, but he has a moral compass that supersedes any orders or directives from his bosses (part of his problem with the CIA). He literally can't make himself ignore injustice. As he's fretting how to save these girls, he winds up aligned with a forensic investigator who is tracking down the same bad guys because they kidnapped her sister. What she lacks in skill and experience, she well makes up for with determination and passion. Between the two of them, they decide to do the impossible. There's one way this book is different from other Gray Man stories: It's written in present tense first person, which makes it more personal and immediate than stories written in third person past tense. I asked my husband if he noticed that--or cared (he also read the book). He didn't notice, didn't care. I'm going to call that, just me. Overall, I highly recommend this for readers of spy/mystery/adventure thrillers. There is no way you'll be disappointed.

    Mark Greaney’s One Minute Out grabs the reader’s attention and never lets go. The Gray Man narrates much of the story with his ironic wit, so he relieves some of the tension caused by the subject matter: human trafficking. Slave owners referred to humans as chattel and in the same way modern sex traffickers refer to their women as product. I wanted to stop reading often, but continued because I wanted to know about the subject in order to rail against it.

    It's always a treat to go along with Court Gentry, aka The Gray Man, on an adventure. It doesn't seem possible that this is book nine in this excellent series. You do not have to be familiar with the previous books in the series to enjoy this one but seeking out the previous books will give you lots of reading pleasure to look forward to.

The plot for this book deals with human trafficking, specifically women for the sex slave trade. This subject made me very uncomfortable because I feel so helpless in doing anything to help stop this horrible criminal activity. Court just moves right in to do all he can to help one group of women in the process of being smuggled to their final destination. Gentry is still in an on the books/off the books relationship with the CIA. Even he is surprised when that agency begins to show they also have an interest in this criminal organization. What possible reason can the CIA have for wanting Court to back off from his goal of tracking down the head of this terrible criminal group? That answer came as a real surprise to me. Once again a Gray Man adventure is packed with impossibly dangerous situations that have to be negotiated by this shadowy, lone wolf figure. I can't honestly say I'm satisfied with how this one ended but then neither was Gentry so I'll just have to live with it. As I've said before when reading a book in this series, get your seatbelt buckled tight because this story will take you on a whirlwind ride. Thank you to Penguin Random House, Berkley for an ARC of this novel.

    Courtland Gentry (aka the Gray Man) takes on human trafficking in the latest thriller from Mark Greaney. Just a note to the author: PLEASE don't do anymore of the series in the first person point of view. It totally takes away from the story without adding any notable benefits. Stick with the tried and true third person omniscient point of view. Outside of that, this was a solid three star book.

Having been the subject of a previous Tom Clancy series novel, the human trafficking thing was ok, but not a really convincing storyline. The author tells of how human trafficking is the #3 criminal enterprise on planet Earth. A revealing look at one of the world's myriad problems. The Gray Man series continues and the ending is a teaser for book #10. So, if you've followed the series, this book is worth the effort, though just barely.

    Just another great book. Mark Greaney has just written his best book yet. Somewhat on the lines of Tom Clancy but with his own story telling abilities. Gentry is at his best. It was smooth and suspenseful from the beginning to the end.

    I suppose every good series is due a blip. And this is Mark Greaney’s blip. Number nine in the series feels more forced and illogical than the previous ones. The author decides to switch to first person rather than third and that certainly doesn’t work. Neither does the plot really, basically Court Gentry assassinates a war criminal but finds himself pulled into the dark world of sex trafficking. So lots of killing criminals in each country as he tracks a group of women in the pipeline. Eventual I suppose every good series is due a blip. And this is Mark Greaney’s blip.

Eventually it comes to a head in the US as the Grey Man recruits a bunch of geriatrics to take down a complex. It’s not a spoiler to mention that some of the captured ladies have some unexpected weapons skills too. It’s a fast moving action thriller, but feels too much done by the numbers and the plot is daft. One to forget.

    In exchange for an honest review, I would like to thank NetGalley, Mark Greaney and Penguin Random House Berkley Publishing for the ARC of ONE MINUTE OUT. Court Gentry is explosive in this high octane espionage thriller. The Gray Man is a conflicted and complex soul, and this novel underscores that fact. He is an assassin with a moral compass, albeit somewhat bent. He admits he is a bad dude for the purpose of ridding the world of ‘badder’ dudes. He has a conscience justifying righteousness kill In exchange for an honest review, I would like to thank NetGalley, Mark Greaney and Penguin Random House Berkley Publishing for the ARC of ONE MINUTE OUT. Court Gentry is explosive in this high octane espionage thriller. The Gray Man is a conflicted and complex soul, and this novel underscores that fact. He is an assassin with a moral compass, albeit somewhat bent. He admits he is a bad dude for the purpose of ridding the world of ‘badder’ dudes. He has a conscience justifying righteousness kills. The reader gets glimpses of his inner turmoil- his self reflection, questioning his motives. No doubt about it, Court Gentry’s multi dimensional character is what makes this series so successful! That, coupled with interesting plot lines and explosive action! This particular storyline is particularly dark - that of human trafficking. The gritty and gruesome depictions of the international “pipeline” of female slavery make this a deeply troubling read. This reader had to put the book down and take frequent breaks due to the weighted content. The exciting action doesn’t pick up until the last 25% of the book, at which point, one could.not.put.it.down! However difficult the content, it is important content and no doubt well researched with statistics of the “world’s 150-billion-dollar annual human trafficking revenue”; “Sex trafficking is the third most profitable criminal enterprise in the world, behind drugs and counterfeiting. It’s ahead of the sale of illegal weapons.” Therefore, while a difficult and sobering read in that the scenarios are all too realistic, it is an important one. At the conclusion of the novel, Gentry’s self reflection again demonstrates more of his inner turmoil and character: “ I hope Roxana and the other girls from the ranch can all go back to their lives, putting this behind them. I hope Liliana made it back to Moldova safely, and I hope the twenty-two women and girls sold into bondage in Italy can be found and rescued. All these people need so much help, but I can’t help them. I can’t help any of them. All I can do is hope. I close my eyes and lean my head back now. Men continue to treat my wounds as I lay there. Hope isn’t a strategy, but sometimes it’s all you’ve got.” HOPE. HOPE is thematic in Gentry’s actions and reflections.This narrative caused me to reflect on all the (real!) men and women who stand in the gap for our liberty, enduring horrific experiences and their aftermath in the HOPE of making a difference in the lives of Everyman. The denouement is the excellent! Gentry is safe, his unsanctioned mission forgiven and successful, and his colleagues are promised a release from custody. While Gentry is furious about the political machinations and government’s alliances with the main antagonist of his noble cause, he concedes to return to the fold and the reader gets a glimpse of the HOPE that is the underpinning of his assignments; Gentry’s CIA boss, Matt Hanley concedes: “ You are too precious a commodity for me to let you run around the world saving individual girls. The next job I have for you … frankly, kid … it’s bigger than that.” That teaser surely gives the reader hope of more great feats to come for our noble assassin, Court Gentry! One can only hope it will be another thrilling ride! Quotable Gentry quotes: “I had a mentor, and he had a thing he used to tell me. ‘Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.’” “One thing I’ve noticed in this line of work. Nobody is sorry when they are doing what they do. But everyone seems so sorry when I show up to make them pay for it.

    One Minute Out is a fresh and an exciting new look into the gritty world of The Gray Man. Going strong with now 9 books in the series, Mark Greaney shows no signs of slowing down in creating excellent action thrillers. One Minute Out is a testament to the fact.

Going strong with now 9 books in the series, Mark Greaney shows no signs of slowing down in creating excellent action thrillers. One Minute Out is a testament to the fact. One Minute Out takes a slightly different approach in highlighting Court Gentry as a lethal operative, this time in the first-person point of view, putting readers directly in Gentry’s mind. I was excited to see how it would pan out, and I was delighted with the result. The first person POV allowed for some memorable moments stemming from Gentry’s badass attitude and thought processes. The first person POV also added another layer to Gentry’s characterization, showing his inner thoughts and demons under a more focused spotlight, investing the readers even more into the narrative. I felt the first person POV was highly beneficial for a dark story as One Minute Out’s, emphasizing the evil of sex trafficking and the brutality suffered by the victims. Reading Court Gentry’s mind in the face of this evil brought Gentry even further to life as a real-life character. The action doesn’t skip a beat as expected from The Gray Man, as Court Gentry operates with lethal parameters via his Glock 19 just as well as with his bare hands. With some highly cinematic yet grounded action sequences written in a fast-paced tone, I was highly entertained. The tactical and weaponry details were accurately described, adding to the tone of realistic action thriller. Ample number of heart-pounding shootouts, well-written airborne sequences, and a brutal knife fight, continue the trademark of an exhilarating Mark Greaney action packed thriller. I was just as pleased with the storyline and narrative. With a plot that could have easily spiraled down into a rabbit hole, it would have been a shame to have that happen. However, Mark Greaney knows how to write. The narrative bounces to different places without losing sight of the plan, keeping the readers engaged with the plot and anticipating what will come next. Coupled with brilliant twists and turns to keep the plot on high heat, involving dark, shadowy, and unexpected alliances, One Minute Out is an absolute treat for Gray Man fans as well as fans of the action thriller genre. Gray Man's adversaries do not hold back any punches to put an end to the lethal operative, and are described with a malevolence that makes the reader want to root for Gentry to end them all. This book is a dark one, with some brutal and upsetting moments, causing Court Gentry to lash out against his adversaries in a feral manner outside of his normal cool demeanor. The ending reflects Court Gentry’s inner dilemma for trying to save the whole world, but having to settle for a few at a time, his moral compass unwavering in the face of incredible odds against him, cementing Court as a broken hero with a strong desire to punish the sinners of the world.

    I can never put a Gray Man story down once I dive into it! It is a habit of mine to also read a Gray Man novel twice before attempting to even talk about it just in case I might've missed anything Mark Greaney typed down. His latest, One Minute Out is certainly no exception. In fact, this one even more so because as it happens, the Gray Man (Courtland Gentry) finds himself in a situation way more different than usual.

No matter where he goes or what turn he makes, a situation develops; a state of affairs he must deal with, which he does with precise and literary tactical flair. No doubt about it---Gentry often comes off real! A victim of circumstance. A man dealing with a plethora of quagmires he didn't deliberately create. Read One Minute Out and lose yourself. God knows we need to do that right about now. BOOM!

    Oh this Gray Man is exceptional! I was in for a surprise when Gray Man started talking. He's talkative AND surprisingly a funny man. (view spoiler)[For starters, Prince Harry?, rofl. Then he was Harry all the way to the end. (hide spoiler)] It took a little while to get use to this format, but I welcome the change. Plot is heavy - sex trafficking and the corrupted rich and powerful people. Parts of it made me thought of Epstein. Oh this Gray Man is exceptional!

    Another exciting entry in the Gray Man series. Court Gentry is moonlighting, assassinating a war criminal from the Balkan wars of the 90s. He was going to use a sniper rifle, but decided that wasn't enough so he infiltrates the general's house, and finds that the general was involved in human trafficking.

He reads with emotion and has a very sexy voice.

    I love mark greaney and the greyman however this was my least favorite of the series. Mark's writing in this book takes on more of a first person view that in my opinion takes away from the great story. There are moments where he falls back into his typical style and the book gets great again but he quickly jumps back into the first person and self narration. The overall story is great and the moral conflict that gentry faces was enough to keep me turning pages but I'm hopeful that his next book I love mark greaney and the greyman however this was my least favorite of the series.

    Different Author? I am a huge fan of this series, but this one did not flow correctly. It seemed stilted at times. Normally I am staying up late at night or all night to finish. I am about 90 pages into it and I cannot finish it.

    Court Gentry (aka the Gray Man) is in Croatia to snipe a war criminal. As he watches the old man through his scope, though, he decides that far away through a scope just won't do, and this man needs an up close and personal visit. Despite the presence of a small personal army and a couple of dogs guarding the war criminal, Gentry makes his way into the house only to find the old man not in his bed. Following sounds he hears, he makes his way into a basement and finds over twenty women and girls Court Gentry (aka the Gray Man) is in Croatia to snipe a war criminal. As he watches the old man through his scope, though, he decides that far away through a scope just won't do, and this man needs an up close and personal visit. Despite the presence of a small personal army and a couple of dogs guarding the war criminal, Gentry makes his way into the house only to find the old man not in his bed. Following sounds he hears, he makes his way into a basement and finds over twenty women and girls chained to the walls there. One woman, who was loose because the old man was about to bring her upstairs and assault her, runs out of the house (despite the presence of that small army and a couple of dogs). Gentry kills the old man and then wants to free the women, but one of their number tells him to leave, as he can't protect all of them, and they will be punished worse if they leave and are recaptured. Gentry reluctantly leaves them but vows to find them again and free them, and also to bust the human sex trafficking ring he has stumbled across. The story moves from Croatia to Italy to the US, as Gentry follows the pipeline of women moved from country to country. Along the way, he picks up an ally - one of the womens' sister, who works in financial fraud for EUROPOL - and she heads off on a side trek to engage the services of a hacker. after telling Gentry that not only is there a sex trafficking ring, there's an ocean of bad money being laundered in the process. Meanwhile, Gentry keeps dogging the pipeline, killing quite a number of people in his path and getting beat up at various locales. (view spoiler)[ The evidence continues to pile up, and when it points to a US-based businessman and movie exec as the ringleader, Gentry calls his office - the CIA - and asks for help. When it's denied for reasons he isn't told, he requests help from another, more personal source: a bad guy in Italy, where the women will be sold at auction. The bigshot US businessman will also be in attendance at this particular stop even though his head of security advises him against it, and Gentry wants to get to him somehow, and kill him. On the evening of the auction, Gentry spots members of a special ops team, realizes they're hunting him, and eventually there's a big firefight, with the bad guys hoping on a private plane with two women marked for "special handling" - that is, to serve as sex slaves for he crooked businessman. Gentry makes his way back to the States via a pretty humorous (considering the circumstances) method, and gets to California. Based on information provided by the EUROPOL analyst, he makes his way to the bigshot's house. He realizes he can't take the entire compound by himself, so enlists the help of some old operators (and I mean older in ago, as in, this sort of thing is a young person's game). After killing some more bad guys, and talking the bigshot's personal security out of protecting the bigshot, Gentry has come face to face with the bad guy - but he promised the CIA he wouldn't kill the guy, because the guy is an asset to the CIA, providing information on the flow of money and arms around the world. Since Gentry can't kill the bad guy, he shoots the bad guy right in the crotch, blowing his junk off. I guess that means no more sexytimes for him, assaulting or otherwise, although the way medicine is these days, and the fact that he's a billionaire, it could be entirely possible bad guy could get his nether regions redone and go right back to his evil ways. On the other hand, it's made clear in the last few chapters that the gad guy needs ED drugs and coke in order to be able to perform, so maybe not. Gentry then walks away from the house, despite the LAPD showing up in huge numbers. He climbs into a van holding some CIA dudes, and they drive off into the sunset. (hide spoiler)] The end of the book evokes The Shawshank Redemption (or, for the pedants, "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption") with a litany of "hopes". This book really does seem to be one of the more adaptable ones of the series for the big screen, and it wouldn't surprise me to see it adapted into a screenplay and made into a movie starring some actor everyone will either love or hate, with the hate side pointing out all the ways X could not possibly be the Gray Man. Overall, if you like the Gray Man series, you'll like this book. I do, and I did. Four solid stars out of five.

    If you are in the mood for a super fast-paced novel where you will absolutely not want to set it down-try One Minute Out. This the ninth in the Gray Manseries.

SONY pictures have acquired the rights to this series and I will be first in line or first to stream this action backed if somewhat over the top series.

    Court Gentry is the Gray Man, a rogue CIA operative turned legendary assassin with a conscience, who is known and feared across the globe for his ability to overcome the odds and kill the most well-protected target.

While still secretly working for the CIA as part of an off-the-books operation, Gentry still occasionally engages in freelance assassin work, only accepting contracts on some of the world’s most evil and corrupt individuals. His latest job takes him to a remote property in Croatia, where he is hired to kill a former Serbian general and notorious war criminal who has escaped justice for years. While Gentry is able to eliminate his target, he makes a shocking discovery in the building’s cellar: a dark room full of kidnapped women. Gentry has inadvertently stumbled upon a human trafficking ring that transports kidnapped or coerced women across the world into a life of sexual slavery and untold horrors. Despite his best attempts to rescue the women, Gentry is forced to leave them behind, due to the fear that the women have of their captors. Haunted by what he has seen and the realisation that his actions may have led to terrible repercussions for the captives he encountered, Gentry makes it his objective to relocate and free the women, no matter the cost, while also causing as much pain to the people responsible. The audio version is the best I have read to date, all of MG's "Gray Man" are read by Jay Schneider.

As much as writing under the "Tom Clancy" banner is an Honor few writers get, I, myself, as much as I like his Clancy stories, they are not near as good as the Gray man.selfishly, I wish he would just concentrate on Gray Man, but a writer's gotta write. I like the arc taking Court back as a deniable CIA asset. adding Zoya, and his "frenemy" Zack to the team just made a good thing better(MHO). Th ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I highly recommend this book.

The tempo,the flow, the action, and even the comedic parts just mesh so well into the stories. * after assaulting Cage's mansion and getting picked up by the CIA, Zack's line was hilarious. "You look like shit, kid" seeing the dagger stuck in Court's shoulder"but on the bright side, looks like you won a free knife". That line had me laughing out loud. Big fan, anxiously awaiting either the next Clancy book, or [My choice] the next Gray Man.

    I was fortunate to receive an early copy of Mark Greaney's latest book thanks to a sweepstakes on Facebook and thanks to the Berkley Marketing Team at Penguin Random House. This is part of the author's Gray Man series. And, even without having read the early books, I very quickly became a fan of the Gray Man and plan start with the beginning books ASAP!

This is part of the author's Gray Man series. And, even without having read the early books, I very quickly became a fan of the Gray Man and plan start with the beginning books ASAP! There is much to learn about this intriguing character, who in this book begins a crusade against a particularly sinister group of human traffickers. The book is action packed, with excellent high octane scenes that truly engage the reader and move the plot along. However, by the last page, I feel it is even more a soulful, philosophical novel about the choices to be made in a world that seems to be overrun by truly bad people. For our Gray Man, the choices always fall on the side of helping those victimized by evil greedy people. The odds against good folks succeeding may seem at times to be overwhelming, but there's always Hope. As the Gray Man says, "Hope isn't a strategy, but sometimes it's all you've got." February 18th is the on sale date. Look for it at your local bookstore Ask your local library to order it.

I swear—this is the only series that can start with Gentry taking down a genocidal dictator from the 90’s alone, stumble into an international human trafficking ring, and take that down with a small squad of operators within a week. All that, and still make it sound plausible. I’ve said it before, but this is the only action thriller series that I can already see how they would film the movie. The action is high, the plot frenetically paced, and yet he manages to craft every gunfight and hand-to-hand in a cinematic fashion without delving into Fast & the Furious or John Wick territory by making it overtly over-the-top. Everything clicks here—from the chasing down leads on the Consortium, partnering with Talyssa, partnering with the Manila gang, and even the final shootout by the pool house. It just makes sense and it makes you want to read further. Dead Eye is always going to be my favorite installment, but page for page every book in the series is a rock star concert tour and One Minute Out is simply the latest stop on the tour. This is literally how all action thrillers should be done.

    I didn't think it could get more trite than this - the human-trafficking theme, so done-to-death - then the author did the unthinkable. He decided it would make this book better if he has the Gray Man tell the female character "We're going to use you as bait." Seriously? He has this TSTL female straight out of one of those old romantic suspense books. You know the type - she has some office job or is a waitress and she harries off to Colombia or Africa to find/rescue her sister/brother as if that I didn't think it could get more trite than this - the human-trafficking theme, so done-to-death - then the author did the unthinkable.

And he drops in that hackneyed use-you-as-bait trope? I can't believe Greaney, who'd given me several 5 star books, could do this. But he did and I couldn't continue. One star for what I managed to listen to. Ugh.

    This is the 9th book in this series of the Gray May. This whole series has been a solid 4 stars for me. I have enjoyed them. This one was my least favorite, but I still liked it. I like Court Gentry and I like his conscience. But what I like the most is that he hasn't got an insufferable ego. This author keeps this character's skill set balanced with the trouble he finds himself in. Now this one seemed a little long at times with the human trafficking. Court was always moving on to the next count This is the 9th book in this series of the Gray May. This whole series has been a solid 4 stars for me. I have enjoyed them.

This author keeps this character's skill set balanced with the trouble he finds himself in. Now this one seemed a little long at times with the human trafficking. Court was always moving on to the next country trying to catch up with some people, but he kept missing them. That was growing old because the outcome became a repeating loop. But finally the ending is when things started happening....it felt a little late in the game. So, 3 stars.

    A thriller written with some humor to lighten the very intense action and suspenseful events. Some of the Gray Man's dialogue seems lighthearted given the situations he gets himself into, but it goes well for readability, to keep the reader from putting down the book. The Gray Man comes through his ordeals okay, as every hero should in fiction. Improbable in real life, but entertaining in fiction.
