For years, Court Gentry was the CIA’s best covert asset. Then, without warning, the agency put him at the top of its kill list. Court fled the country and became an enigmatic killer for hire known as the Gray Man. However, after a tense reconciliation, of sorts, Court begrudgingly finds himself working for his former government overseers. While on a mission to Croatia, Court uncovers a human trafficking operation. The trail leads from the Balkans all the way back to Hollywood. Court is determined to shut it down, but his CIA handlers have other plans. The criminal ringleader has actionable intelligence about a potentially devastating terrorist attack on the US. The CIA won’t move until they have that intel. Court finds himself as the pivot of a moral balancing act.
