Fact or Fiction:
I've recommended the Gray Man series to hundreds of people and have gotten nothing by positive feedback.  I was first exposed to Greaney when he took over Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series, and have been delighted to see his original series move forward with such success and a TV series in development.  "Relentless" is the 10th installment of the Gray Man series and the writing, character development, and plots just keep getting better as the Gray Man is faced with corrupt private intelligence firms, Russian wet work teams, terrorist drone swarms, a ton of international intrigue. Highly recommend checking it out. (Amazon Link)
