After five years on the run, Court Gentry is back on the inside at the CIA. But his first mission makes him wish he had stayed on the outs when a pair of Chinese agents try to take him down in Hong Kong. Normally the Chinese prefer to stay eyes-only on foreign agents. So why are they on such high alert? Court's high stakes hunt for answers takes him across Southeast Asia and leads to his old friend, Donald Fitzroy, who is being held hostage by the Chinese. Fitzroy was contracted to find Fan Jiang, a former member of an ultra-secret computer warfare unit responsible for testing China's own security systems. And it seems Fan may have been too good at his job - because China wants him dead. The first two kill teams Fitzroy sent to find Fan have disappeared, and the Chinese have decided to "supervise" the next operation. What they don't know is that Gentry's mission is to find Fan first and get whatever intel he has to the US. After that, all he has to do is get out alive.

Zu viel des Guten
Ohne auf die Story einzugehen: das Audiobuch fand ich fast unerträglich zu hören. Zwar ist es ohne Frage eine große Leistung des Sprechers, all die verschiedenen Akzente (Russisch, Chinesisch u.v.a.) zu imitieren, aber meines Erachtens gerät der Plot unter all dem fast in den Hintergrund. Eine erkennbare, durchgehende Erzählerstimme hätte die Freude am Hören vermutlich retten können.

Gray Man as CIA agent
This time the Gray Man is on a mission as an agent for the CIA - a completely new twist as in previous books he was operating on his own account as a killer. This new setup reminds me of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series - the lone wolf who saves the word (or at least the USA) all alone in secret mission for the CIA. Anyway, I liked this book a lot and hope to hear more of these books in the future.
