Publisher's Summary

When a father loses his son to a career criminal, revenge just isn’t enough.

When ex-soldier Tom Gray loses his wife and child to a career criminal, it seems life can’t get much worse. But when the killer is let off with time served on remand, Gray knows there is something fundamentally wrong with the justice system. Engaging the help of his ex-SAS buddies, he kidnaps five repeat offenders and asks the public to vote on their fate: Should they be allowed to continue their criminal ways with inadequate punishment, or has Britain had enough?

His website attracts a worldwide audience and, although the authorities know where he is, they are powerless to stop him.

Can Gray carry out his audacious plan? Will Andrew Harvey and his fellow MI5 operatives find a way to stop him?

Gray Justice is more than a simple tale of revenge: It’s a rollercoaster ride with an ending you’ll never forget.

    "This series has great potential!"

    British author Alan McDermott is off to a good start in what promises to be an excellent espionage series. Gray Justice is an action thriller that introduces Tom Gray as a future agent of MI5. II look forward to listening to all future books in the series.

    British actor and audiobook narrator James Langton is a nice selection as series narrator. His voice is perfect and although he reads a little slowly that can be corrected by listening at 1.25X recording speed.

    Gray Justice is about ex-military officer and security consultant Tom Gray, the protagonist, getting justice for a young hoodlum who kills Gray's young son and drives his wife to suicide. The justice system lets the murderer go after 7 months imprisonment.

    The series has 5 star potential!

    Excellent story with plenty of twists, turns and action! The premise is great and the storyline intriguing. If you like Lee Child, you'll love this! The narration was top notch too!

    Story
    "Black Ops and Shades of Gray"

    Tom Gray, protagonist of this first book in a new series from England, is a retired veteran of the SAS (Special Air Services), Britain's elite military unit. His civilian life is shattered when a police chase after a young car thief results in the deaths of Gray's wife and 2-year-old son. When the punk--whose criminal record already fills enough pages to make a novel (and those are only the times he got caught)-- is let go with minimal probation and time served, Gray and his buddies--SAS vets all--hatch a radical plan to incite the British public to demand changes in a failed justice system.

    Gray's plan unfolds to the reader pretty much as it unfolds to the public over the nightly news. We don't know the full intent of the plan until near the book's end. But long before that we *do* know something neither Gray nor the authorities trying to deal with him realize--that a third party has entered the game, planning to turn Gray's actions to their own nefarious purpose.

    "Gray Justice" is a short book with the flavor of a Tom Clancy novel. Almost from the beginning the rather ruthless Tom Gray reminded me of John Clark, the most interesting of Clancy's many characters (well, at least that's what I think).

    I don't know whether the subsequent books will live up to this first one, but I downloaded "Gray Resurrection" (the title of Book 2 is only mildly a spoiler) when I was about 2/3 of the way through Book 1, and I finished Book 1 in record time because I *had* to know what happened next.

    "Very interesting"

    This was a very interesting and entertaining story. It had me asking a lot of questions about how we do justice in America. I think some of the theories in the book are a little far-fetched but definitely had me thinking. The performance was fantastic.

    very good book.. kind of short since the last few books I have listened to have been more than 15 hours long.. but it was a good break I really like one man army scenarios.. His idea of the justice system is entertaining also..

    "Really inventive, original plot"

    I would have done given 5 stars but was a bit disappointed in the ending. Obviously, he was laying ground for a sequel but I would have liked to know a bit about what happened to some of the other characters. I see there are at least 3 sequels and I will definitely buy the 2nd. I do tend to rate lower than many so I'm sure book has lots of 5 stars.

    The narrator's voice was fine but I didn't pick up on distinctions when he was speaking as Tom Gray, the MI5 guy, Mansour, or even Sally. It must be hard when story is told by different people, but with no change in voice or tone, it sometimes took a minute to figure out who was telling the story at any given time.

    "Interesting Premise For the Story"

    Enjoyable and fast. Interesting setup and cleaver twists. The only down side was the ending where Grey wakes up in another country, just seemed like someone else wrote it. It didn't fit with the rest of the book. It was actually enough of a jolt and turn off that I don't think I will continue with the series. I liked the remainder of the book but felt betrayed with the weird surreal ending.

    "I just love this idea sooo much"
    What did you like most about Gray Justice?

    What a fabulous idea, I absolutely loved "Gray Justice"... The powers that be should read this, then action it, it really does have some very good ideas! It would make a brilliant TV series, someone ought to contact the BBC... Fast paced & full of action. Not my normal read, but I'm so looking forward to the 2nd in the Gray series.

    "Justice indeed"

    This is an excellent book . It grips one from the beginning to the end with plenty of shocks in between. The plot is exceptional and Tom Gray has been well characterised as have his friennds. I trust that we will lear n more about them in the following books in this series.

    Story
    "A New Twist in the SAS Tale"

    A thoroughly enjoyable and novel take on the activities and capabilities of the men of the SAS Regiment! A story of revenge built around the tragic and senseless death of the son of a former SAS officer and the tragedy that it brings, is just the backdrop to a highly plausible method to make everyone - the judiciary, the government, the special services, et al - pay!

    And you honestly, don't see the twists coming (& there are a few). This is a welcome change from the typical SAS tale, I'm looking forward to the second book. I hope that it lives up to this one, without Tom Gray in it!

    Not too badly narrated, but not the best that I've heard. However, he doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the entire story.

    Enjoy!

    "Interesting plot"

    I found the story compelling and had to keep listening to find out what happened next. The terrorist part of it was a tad far fetched in its reasoning, but did add to the intrigue. The characters were introduced and explained well and the plot was an interesting one, and well read by the narrator, though some of the accents were a bit unrealistic. I'm looking forward to reading the ensuing books to see where we go from here.

    "I loved this story."

    I will not go into full details and do an in depth review, as I'm sure lots of people will do this.

    I will say I really enjoyed the plot, I liked the characters and had empathy with the main character.

    However, I wasn't too keen on the narrator. His voice and performance irked me somewhat. Near the end of the story he attempts a Geordie accent which sounded more like a Man/Scouse hybrid.

    But, it did not spoil the experience so much as to stop me listening, and I'm glad I kept with it as I have a new favourite audio book.

    Story
    "SAS Wannabes"
    Would you try another book written by Alan McDermott or narrated by James Langton?

    By the author...? Possibly. This is fairly undemanding holiday listening that holds the interest. It suffers from being another SAS Fan-Boy epic, full of MP5's, Double-taps and X-Ray down buzz-words. The narrator is another story; once again, an actor feels the need to 'act' the book rather than narrate it. Almost every character has to have an accent (they don't actually) and at times James Langton sounds as if he is telling us a story for children (Think Kids TV). In short, the narrator gets in the way too often. The best narrators become almost invisible.


    Would you recommend Gray Justice to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Langton’s performances?

    Probably not.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Possibly


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, a mild and not unpleasant distraction.
