Relentless by Mark Greaney
Intelligence operatives around the world are disappearing, seemingly vanishing. But when one missing American agent re-appears in Venezuela, Court Gentry, is dispatched to bring him in. A team of assassins has other ideas. Court escapes with his life and a vital piece of intelligence. Meanwhile, CIA agent (and fan favorite character) Zoya Zakharova is in Berlin. Her mission: to infiltrate a private intelligence firm with some alarming connections. The closer she gets to answers, the less likely she is to get out alive. Court and Zoya are just two pieces on this international chessboard, and they’re about to discover one undeniable truth—sometimes capturing a king requires sacrificing some pawns.
The Gray Man series has continuously drawn comparisons to the giants of the field including Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, and, of course, Tom Clancy. Certainly the Clancy comparisons are no surprise: Mark co-wrote Clancy’s final three Jack Ryan thrillers before the venerable legend’s death and then carried the mantle for another four novels.
