Présentation de l'éditeur

A Tom Gray Novel: Book 1

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, the first book in the Tom Gray series, is more than a simple tale of revenge: it’s a rollercoaster ride with an ending you’ll never forget.

Page turner. Well written and fast reading for this book. The plot seemed well designed and then unexpected people would like to take advantage of the situation. Unexpected end, to be continued....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Technothriller with Heart!! 24 septembre 2011
Par R. S. Guthrie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I downloaded this to my Kindle after reading the sample and getting hooked. When a writer puts together a technothriller (i.e. a thriller with a strong technical thread holding much of the storyline together), he or she takes on a certain obligation: whether they know the technical specs or not, they need to deliver on the authenticity. "Gray Justice" delivers. Alan McDermott weaves us an intricate tale of military preparedness with devilish and cunning accuracy. Still, he does not fall into the trap of getting TOO technical--McDermott's prose is easy to understand while still delivering the thriller punch!

The word "heart" applies here as well--the author puts together a current, relevant storyline about a hero who cares; a protagonist who is willing to risk everything he is for the sake of his friends, his family, and his country. Tom Gray is a hero you will believe in!

Bravo, Alan McDermott. You've got me awaiting your next effort with high anticipation! Read this outstanding first novel; you won't be disappointed!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 all sorts of action 6 septembre 2012
Par Shoshana Hathaway - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
There are certain books which are thinly disguised vehicles through which an author expresses specific, personal philosophical, political or moral views. I find such vehicles annoying, because, if I want to read an OP/ED article, I can easily find one, and a nonfiction book or article on these subject seems more straightforward and honest. For a good bit of this book, I thought I was dealing with such a vehicle, and at times felt it was little more than a kind of political fantasy/wish fulfillment piece. But, having begun the book, I finished it, and I'm glad I did, because, at the very least, I was partially wrong.

much of the personal value of this book came gradually, after I had finished it, and spent some time considering it. The very fact that it led me to thinking and examination indicated to me that I had found something of more depth than I first realized, and that would be enough for me to recommend it.

I do not intend to discuss the author's expressed opinions, nor do I wish to debate their merit. What I do want to do is look at how those ideas are expressed, and how well the author uses the format of fiction to do so. The author's writing style lends itself nicely to action fiction. He is able, in one or 2 sentences to both tell what is happening in a completely understandable way, and convey other descriptive information concerning setting and characters without missing one flying bullet, and that requires tight discipline and discernment. The words seem to race off the page ...but I doubt seriously that they raced on to the page; they are too well crafted to have been done by impulse or in haste. While the characterizations are developed only to the extent that they need to be to compliment the action, we are given enough to get a very good idea of who the people in this story are, and why they do what they do, and react in the ways that they do. Sometimes, one critical trait or character flaw can speak volumes, and again, the author uses this technique very well.

I admit that I didn't see how the plot would unfold, and, while sometimes I found the "message" a bit heavy handed, I couldn't see any other way the author could have unfolded his plot; one that turned out to be stunningly surprising, and worked out with near brilliance. All in all, this extremely fast paced action novel is satisfying on many levels, and dismissing it as "another action thriller"would do a disservice to both author and reader. I decided, despite my initial reaction to buy the next book, and I look forward to reading it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An absolute must-read!!! 8 septembre 2011
Par Cinta Garcia de la Rosa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
After meeting Alan in Twitter, I decided that I could read his book. Why not?? I have a Kindle and the price was quite good. When I started reading it, I was very surprised. Gray Justice has surprised me quite a lot. When I normally read a thriller, more or less at the middle of the book I start suspecting what the ending is going to be. In this case it was impossible. The quick pace and rhythm of the story keeps on moving and turning in really unexpected ways, making the story so enthralling and making impossible for the reader to put the book aside. Very interesting story, quite close to the reader since we live through similar stories every day: through the news, TV, and in our cities. A wonderful story of a desolate man who loses his family and chooses to do something to change the world where he lives in.
Very well done, Alan!! I can't wait to read the sequel!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read 29 mai 2013
Par Winnie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The story was a good read. Not outstanding but engaging and easy to read. I'm not much into military stuff, so I skimmed through parts of it. The POV is rather "manly man." Most of the characters are male, and the few female ones are incidental and/or not very likable. Sally is somewhat of an exception, but I think she's portrayed as more of a blithering "wanna be" than a professional like the others. Still, the twists and turns of the plot were well done, and I think the next two books in the series will be worth checking out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Desperate actions and a heavy dose of violence. 23 mars 2013
Par Mo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Tom Gray, the central character in this book, is seeking personal justice while also aiming for reform of the British judicial system. He takes the law into his own hands, blurring the boundaries between justice and retribution, and his actions lead quickly to a situation from which it is hard to see how he can emerge victorious. Knowing that this was the first book in a series in which Gray would feature as the central character, I found myself repeatedly wondering in the early chapters how Gray could possibly be free to return for future stories. This early suspense continued as the story became more complex and others sought to exploit his situation for their own purposes. Although I enjoyed the first half of this book, it then became more predictable but also less believable, as the story was reliant upon the occurrence of a sequence of problem-free events and the authorities responding as Gray had anticipated - but this is fiction, after all, so we do have to suspend belief.

While the story is about the search for justice, the actions of Tom Gray himself become increasingly questionable. He must be a cold, hard individual to do what he does and I did not find him at all likable. I get a sense that this author's aim is to develop a series of action stories in the style of the Jason Bourne series by Robert Ludlum, very much books for those who like lots of action and a good dose of violence with a ruthless hero pitting his wits - and muscle - against others who are equally ruthless. Personally, this is not my preferred genre and I will not be reading the next book by this author, but if you like books and films such as the Bourne series, or action films starring Bruce Willis, you will probably enjoy this author's work.
