Court Gentry is known as the Gray Man. A former agent for the CIA, he is now a wanted man and works for the private sector. Although he is an assassin, he does have a personal code and takes out those he considers to be truly evil. When waiting on an extraction team, he sees a group of insurgents celebrating the downing of an American helicopter and watches as they kill one of the survivors. He knows he shouldn’t but he kills many of the terrorists and then he has to get out of there. He heads back to England and his handler Sir Donald Fitzroy, where he finds he is now wanted by a French conglomerate and kill teams are on his heels.
