Book Description

Book 4, a continuation of the Tom Gray series.

Tom Gray is enjoying time with his family after the birth of his daughter, now three months old, and just wants an easy home life. However, trouble has a way of finding him. While he is visiting his uncle’s new grocery store, thugs arrive demanding protection money, and in the ensuing fight, Gray is hurt. As he recuperates, Gray learns that a team of friends is facing grave danger on a mission in a tiny war-torn African nation, where an evil warlord is kidnapping boy soldiers to do his work in his bid for supremacy. Gray sets off on a rescue mission, but with his attention now divided between two continents, events are spiraling out of control, and Gray must fight to save all that is dear to him.

In Gray Retribution, the fourth book of the popular, action-packed Tom Gray series, suspense builds to an unforgettable ending.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excitement from start to finish 22 Dec. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Like other reviewers, I read the synopsis of Gray Justice and decided to give it a try. I was gripped from the very first page and delighted to see their were three more to follow. Now I sit here disappointed that I've just finished number 4, having read the lot in a little over a week! I was determined to save numbers 3 and 4 for my Christmas reading...alas, it was not to be. These are stories you can't put aside until later! It is rare to come across a new author with a new series where you feel you just have to read the lot, one after the other, but this is one of those series.
    A superb main character, loyal, sensitive but utterly ruthless when he needs to be. A group of friends with similar qualities. And a bunch of villains who, had they but realised the capabilities of the men they were dealing with, would have stayed well away.
    A brilliant action story, seriously violent in places, with an explosive finish that leaves the reader really looking forward to number 5, in which hopefully the author will tie up the couple of bits of unfinished business that Gray leaves in this one.
    For lovers of a superb action story, get this series downloaded to enjoy over the Christmas/New Year holiday. There aren't be many better books around I promise you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars tom gray series 28 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I pick my books by how exciting the description of the story is and after reading the back of the first in the series i thought i would give it a try, i proceeded to download the rest of the trilogy and read all 3 books within a few days whilst on holiday lazing by the pool. When i got an email from Amazon saying the 4th book in the series was out i knew i had to have it! Wow!!! Nothing less than an amazing series of books and i highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys a good action story! My usual types of books are crime/police/thrillers and i must say these books did not disappoint at all!!! Hooked from the first chapter of book 1 all the way to the last page of the 4th book.
    Im pretty gutted there are no more in the series and im feeling a little lost now as not sure i will find another book i will enjoy as much as these.
    Give the books a wont regret it!!!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Tough Thriller is all Action 8 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Gray Retribution By Alan McDermott

    This young author knows how to grasp the reader's attention--and then hold on to it.

    This latest work in his oeuvre is typically one continual flow of action and incident, as the hero, Tom Gray, is drawn away from his home and his wife and young daughter to go to the aid of his employees, all tough ex-soldiers, on duty for his security firm in Africa.

    What I have always liked about McDermott's central character, Tom Gray, is the fact that he goes against the fashionable image of the cynical and disillusioned "anti-hero." Gray is a man with strong beliefs and loyalties--to his men, to his wife and young daughter, to his friends.

    Although he has decided to stay away from direct combat out of concern for his family, he feels that he has to go to the aid of his men when they find themselves trapped in the typically African chaos of a cynical uprising and brutal insurgency.

    But before he makes this decision to go to Africa he has a chance contact with a gangster who runs a protection racket among business people - and out of deference to his wife's wishes that he stay out of trouble, he lets the incident ride.

    The African guerrilla warfare is depicted, accurately, as vicious and brutal, with young boys dragooned into military action and then drugged into submission by ambitious and ruthless men who are out to swell their bank accounts rather than serving the interests of their own people.

    The writing catches the casual brutality of the criminals exploiting political ambition and there are moments of extreme violence and murderous cruelty.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 20 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Yet again a brilliant book. The Tom Gray books have kept me wanting more after each chapter. I'm happy to say that not once have I been disappointed with the story. Each twist and turn not only makes you want to continue reading to the end of the book, but makes to start the very next none straight away.
    As someone who struggles to read books and be kept interested in a story line, I have loved read every book in the series and not once been put off. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping 21 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I thought this book was actually the best in the Tom Gray series. It was a roller coaster of a read where I felt different emotions throughout the book from frustration at some of the characters to heart felt sadness at the tragic loss of an important someone.
    The last three chapters had me hooked and I could not put this book down. Emotional, exciting, gripping and a thoroughly good read.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Book 4 as good as 1,2 & 3 - good page turners 10 Sept. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have read all four books one after the other. Although four different stories there is a thread running though all of them. All have, obviously, been well researched and the style of writing gives you a real page turner. I thoroughly enjoyed all four books and would recommend them as good relaxing reading.

    5.0 out of 5 stars McDermott going for 5 gold
    Possibly premature with the 5 stars,as I've only just started it. But I've already downloaded book number 5 as a sample and fully expect it to live up to the 4 proceeding classics
