    Solid fare for illiterate, Daily mail-reading little EnglandersOn the surface this is a very promising idea: ex-SAS guy sees his son killed by thugs who walk out of court. So he gets some of his mates to kidnap some random thugs, imprisons them, and puts them on the internet to let "the people of Britain" decide whether they should live or die. To drag this short story (kicking and screaming) out to novella length, we also get a terrorist sub-plot about how all those filthy foreigners want to destroy the UK.This is the kind of hack fiction that Daily Mail readers in the UK will adore. It confirms all of their racist beliefs, without troubling itself with things like characterisation, giving more than one point of view, or anything more complicated than watching the good guys win and seeing the baddies suffer.This is simplistic, childish fiction at its very worst; it is a book that completely justifies why self-published fiction should be avoided and which, no matter how cheap, is not worth the money. This kind of book gives all self-publishing writers a deservedly bad name. The potential behind the idea is completely wasted, and while the start of the text is clear enough, later it is riddled with simple errors (my favourite was "as soon as soon as...").If you enjoy this kind of story, I strongly suggest you look at books by McNab or Ryan, as those guys have at least been in the SAS for real, so their stories, while far from perfect, have a level of authenticity wholly lacking here.In summary, this the worst piece of fiction I've ever read, and is a triumph of marketing over substance.

    InterestingTom Gray lost his son and his wife, after learning that person responsible for the accident was released just after serving eight months. He is determined to change the way these repeated criminals were being punished. Kidnapped five repeated offenders and released statement to demanding changes.

    Traditionally this is not my favourite genre, but I thought I’d give it a go as an audiobook. Overall, this was quite an enjoyable thought provoking and fast paced crime thriller with plenty of action. I probably enjoyed it more as an audiobook, than I think I would have by reading it, and think it would be great for TV. I’ll definitely consider listening to the next one in the series.I borrowed this in audiobook format through Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

    "Gray Justice" by Alan McDermott was an amazing novel to read. I received this free download through Smashwords.Gray Justice tells the story of Tom Gray, an ex-soldier running a successful business until his world is destroyed. His young son is killed by a joy rider and his wife, overcome with grief, takes her own life months later. When his son’s killer walks free from court, Gray decides that the current justice system needs to be changed, and he kidnaps five serial offenders.This former SAS soldier threatens to kill thousands of people unless the government allows him to execute five suspected criminals live on the internet.Tom Gray demands that the government allow him to poll the nation to decide whether or not his captives should live or die.If the government do not allow him to collect and act on the votes sent in by members of the public, he will kill his prisoners and take his own life.He brought justice into the hands of the people.This novel was well written and had me glued to my seat.For those that love a good this book. I am now waiting for the sequel.

    Tom Gray and his wife are destroyed when the life of their 3 year old son is snatched from them by a car thief. When Tom’s wife takes her own life because she can’t deal with the loss of her son and the serial offender walks free, Tom decides to take matters into his own hands.With the military and technological facets of this book it is evident that much research and planning went into its writing. The plot is complex and woven in such a fashion that the suspense keeps building. The clues to solving the mystery are subtle and intense.The characters were thoughtfully crafted and played a complex and emotional part in the story. What was interesting was the emotional upheaval brought to the surface with the dilemma of repeat offenders and the turmoil of the victims and their families. It also brings into play the moral quandary of the citizens and government in dealing with repeat offenders and bringing forth justice.Gray Justice is well written and the fluid motion of character presentation keeps the reader engrossed in the story. It is a roller-coaster ride of intrigue and mystery that will pull you into the story. I highly recommend this book to all readers; it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final page is read.

    Gray Justice is one of those rare books that I found hard to break away from while reading. The story of a man who loses everything and decides to teach the justice system a lesson in letting criminals walk free, writer Alan McDermott tells the tale with the deftness of a scribe far more experienced than a first novel normally implies. Tom Gray is the protagonist in the book and his world is shattered when his son is killed by someone joy riding. Later his wife, unable to cope with the trauma, commits suicide. Set in England, Gray Justice tells what happens when Tom watches his son's killer go free... and what the devastation of his new life drives him to do. By kidnapping five serial offenders, Tom presents them to his countrymen via the internet and lets the public decide whether he should let them live, or not. The conclusion is not something I'm going to give away in even the tiniest detail, but suffice to say that it is an ending you won't forget. Gray Justice is a must for anyone looking for a great read and Alan McDermott has proven himself more than worthy of the title `writer.'

    This was a fast past (super original story) befitting the times we live in. Tom Gray has lost his child then his wife, his whole world has been taken from him, he comes up with with the most incredible way to the make the country stand up and listen to him??? Not wanting to ruin the story for you this is a must read you will not be dissapointed! I could see this on the big screen one day its certainly worthy.... I can barely wait for the sequel.

    If there is one thing I know about – it is the injustice in the Criminal Justice System. The truth is that there are way too many families affected by criminals being set free without paying the full price for their crimes and sometimes not paying any price for their heinous crimes. The main character in Gray Justice makes a decision to stand against the justice system to try to change it.Tom Gray is literally forced to take a strong stand against the justice system after a habitual car thief on a joy ride kills his son and his despondent wife commits suicide because she can’t deal with the grief and agony. Tom comes to the resolution that the criminal justice system needs an overhaul (which it really does). He is very focused when he kidnaps five serial offenders and parades them on the internet to let citizens of Britain decide if they should live or die. I don’t want to give away spoilers, but I will say this novel will keep you on the edge of your seat and continuously reading to see what happens next. It is also a very well written novel, which to me is always a pleasure to read.

    Tom Gray is a husband, father, ex serviceman and now business man, living a happy life. That is till the day a lowlife serial car thief runs from the police, leaving his stolen car rolling down the road...into Daniel Gray, his son.His family utterly destroyed, and the offender getting away scot free and returning to offending without a care in the world, Gray straps on his guns, calls his buddies and decides that today is the day the government will finally sit up and smell society.I utterly loved this book. Think Law Abiding Citizen. Now times it by 10. You have just scratched the surface. Plot twists, breathtaking description and gritty, harsh and brutal in places. This book is a must read. Another great plus for me is that it is set in the UK!I can totally see this book making it as a film. Can I suggest Ross Kemp and Gerard Butler for parts?The cliff hanger at the end, I did not see coming, which is a lovely surprise when you read as much as I do. I am drooling for the next instalment....5 star read and then some......

    A cracking start to what promises to be a brilliant series. If you enjoy fast paced action thrillers with a twist you will love this. This has a thought provoking message behind it about the justice system and how we deal with reoffenders and I will definitely read the rest of the series.

    EXTREME MEASURES!Tom Gray feels he has nothing more to lose and just might win in the end. With his son, Daniel now dead and other families affected by criminals set free without paying the full price for their crimes, Tom stands strong against the justice system. The author put forth the effort to research computer technology. In doing so, the story is believable and dynamic.The action sequences are so well written and you feel as though you can actually hear the gunfire, feel the pain of the wounded and your heart will be racing.Although Tom Gray is breaking the law with his terrorist tactics, you will find yourself hoping he will win in the end. The end took me by surprise with a fantastic twist. I would love to say more about this, but once you read this well written, fast-paced novel; you'll be glad I didn't.I highly recommend you read this story about Tom Gray, a man with heart who simply wants justice.Rebecca Scarberry with The Kindle Book Review

    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!!

    For me, this book ranks right up there as one of the best of its genre that I have ever read. I started it Friday evening and had to tear myself away to go to bed and then carried on Saturday and read it on the bus to my Mum's and then promptly ignored her for pretty much the rest of the day whilst I finished it (sorry Mum).I am not going to say much about the plot other than the fact that throughout the book, all I wanted was to see where it was going cos I had absolutely no idea, not even a couple of wild guesses, and it is not very often that a book does that to me. When all was finally revealed, the story made perfect sense and was a very comfortable and complete conclusion.The techno and military aspects of the book were all explained very well and came across as perfectly credible. Mr McDermott has either got insider knowledge of these things or he has spent a long time and effort on researching them.The characters were all true to life and very well presented. I found myself going through a whole host of emotions throughout the book. Having been a victim of crime myself I could really empathise with the main character's issues with the justice system and I found myself constantly torn between agreeing/disagreeing with him and applauding/opposing his methods throughout the book. It certainly left me with a lot to think about.I believe that the sequel is imminent, and that is one book that I will definitely be reading as soon as it is available.

    Why no "no stars" option? Seemingly written by some rabid right wing frother, not only was this book utterly dire I also found its politics supremely loathsome. And as if the plot wasn't bad enough, the author had to shoehorn in some remarkably incompetent Islamic terrorists. I wanted to scrub my eyeballs (and brain) clean once I had read it.

    Tom Gray has a cause. It looks like revenge, but it’s more than that: he wants to change a system that he thinks is rotten. He’s sure that most of the people of his country think it is, too, and the government is just too hidebound, incompetent and cowardly to do anything. So he takes matters into his own hands and uses terrorist tactics to bring about that change.That’s the premise of Alan McDermott’s Gray Justice, a novel that reads like a season of 24.His action sequences are great. They’re fast, gripping and lucid. I can tell exactly what’s going on, I can picture where every character is and where they’re moving. The plot is strong, with no excess details and no dangling subplots. McDermott, like his main character, knows how to focus.The characters have clear motivations. We readers know exactly why every person in this story does what he or she does.Overall, I liked this novel, independently published as an e-book by the author. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the book go to two British charities: the British Heart Foundation, and Barnardo’s the leading children’s charity in the UK.The book is not perfect. While the main character is nominally Tom Gray, it seems to me that more pages are devoted to Andrew Harvey, the special security agent tasked with stopping him. There are sections that are information dumps, especially when the author introduces new characters and tells their back-stories. It could have used a friendly, but firm edit early on.Some of the dialog is a little forced, but most is believable. I can hear people speaking that way. Another problem is that Tom Gray is just a little to capable, cool and calculated for me. I have trouble believing that anyone could plan a caper down to this level of detail, calculating every move his opponents will make (with one major exception that drives the second half of the book). But that’s the only credibility stretch in the book, so we can forgive the author. My book, after all, breaks credulity from the get-go.A point here about the political dimension of the book. The main character proposes changes to the UK’s criminal justice system with much stricter sentences and prisons and even the reinstatement of corporal punishment. I could point out the practical futility of many of the proposals. On the other hand, [SPOILER ALERT! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE END OF THE STORY, SKIP THE REST OF THIS PARAGRAPH], the story itself does show how some of the ideas backfire. Personally, I think that the reasons for crime are deeper than the punishments for them.The point is that McDermott tells a compelling story. I read this book in record time because I wanted to find out what would happen next. And that’s the mark of a successful novelist: he makes you want to read more.

    Book 1, in the Tom Gray seriesThis is a fast-paced, action packed thriller with lots gun battles, explosions and inevitably lots of death. “Gray Justice” is one of those books hard to break away from while reading. The story unfolds as Tom Gray, a military veteran and proprietor of a security industry loses his only child at the hands of a car thief who is a repeat offender. Consequently unable to cope with the death, his wife took her own life. Tom’s world now chattered after losing everything he loved so deeply decides to teach the justice system a lesson….The drama tells what happens when his son’s killer goes free and the ways he takes to appease his mind. His crusade attracts instant worldwide media attention….and as readers we are in the middle of a rollercoaster ride…. This story is far more than a tale of revenge and your typical good-guy wins and bad guy loses mystery. While reading I couldn't help but to question the justice system, one that gives community service to repeat offenders or simply let them go. This book is tough with occasional swear words and some of the scenes are quite violent. Told in the third person viewpoint was a brilliant choice by letting the reader be part in the drama and guessing the outcome. Well I wasn't very good at it and missed more often than I would have liked…than again isn't it what a great thriller supposed to do, “Gray Justice” did not miss a beat and did that beautifully. In thrillers it is usually easy to suspect what the ending is going to be, impossible with this one….The main plot is strong with no excess details and is much focussed on its theme. There is also the mandatory sub-plot where a real terrorist organisation takes an active role in the drama. This is so similar to reading a season of 24, unbelievably action packed…Cool, calm and calculated may describe the protagonist, a bit of a credibility stretch found here but again what is a thriller without characters out of the ordinary, we love James Bond after all why not Tom Gray….Mr. McDermott debut thriller is a real page turner superbly written to fuel our interest in the subsequent additions….Well-done.

    This was a very easy escapist read. Light on characterisation, plot, complexity and freshness of language but nevertheless a story that moved along briskly and held the attention. Sometimes that's all you want in a book and it delivers this. (A varied diet in most things is healthy)Amused to see one reviewer on the strength of this offering suggests that ALL self-published fiction should be avoided and this gives them a 'deservedly bad name'. Must be tongue in cheek since he's a member of the fraternity. Also he seems to suggest that every story should give more than one point of view and should be 'more complicated than watching the good guys win and seeing the baddies suffer.' Entitled to his opinion of course but shouldn't expect every tale to fit his formula. No, this is no work of high literature but if it is 'the worst piece of fiction I've ever read' then he's read too little or not widely enough, especially self-pubbed stuff.

    "Gray Justice" is what you get when a former British commando loses his wife and child to the negligence of a common car thief who the official justice system keeps putting back on the street. Tom Gray has the tech savvy and motivation to devise a unique plan to reform the system and dole out the punishment he believes recidivists deserve. But even the best plans can't anticipate every surprise, and this thriller throws in a few twists that leave the outcome uncertain until the very last page.I enjoyed this book but found it to be somewhat dialogue heavy, which slowed the pace at times. Still, the creative premise propels the story along at a good clip and is sure to strike a chord with citizens disillusioned with the victim/criminal rights balance in the UK and US.

    This is the first book in the series of what promises to be pure gold entertainment. Tom Gray, an ex soldier and now successful business man, husband and dad had got life pretty well sorted. That was until a young tearaway decided to take a car and get involved in the police chase that ended Tom’s son’s life and resulted in his wife taking her life not long after because it was all too much. The only thing Tom had to cling to was that the young bloke was in custody a repeat offender and justice would be served. How wrong he was but if the courts wouldn’t do it then he knew some men that would. There was no hesitation from Tom’s old SAS buddies to do what ever he needed to make this right.Whoa this is a cracking story I felt right up there supporting Tom but I did wonder just how far he would go. Well after the intense training and serving in the SAS let me just say that their is no hesitation, no sir. What a plan! Talk about bring it to the public to decided, it must have saved millions on a referendum. Tom Gray knew the British public were fed up of these criminals simply walking away time and time again. They gained confidence, the Police felt demoralised and the public lived in fear of these yobs. Tom Gray and friends were going to change this, with a little added security to keep MI5 biting at the bit but not daring to make a move against them either.I love a story where the good guys get to do bad things for the right reasons, it all makes for a sensational read. From the plan going into action Alan McDermott keeps the fast pace increasing in each chapter. This is darn good stuff that when you think you have it sussed you just don’t and you are away again reading at fifty to the dozen because you can’t get enough of this. The plot is brilliant. Already loving Tom Gray and all set to read  more of the series as soon as I can.  So much to look forward to!

    The premise of this thriller was interesting. Tom Gray lost his child due to a car thief, and his wife committed suicide soon after. When Tom learned that the car thief got out of jail and continued to commit similar crimes, he had enough. He and his buddies gathered others with similar records who have not learned their lesson and rigged up a system where the public can vote as to whether they live or die. He also has proposed reforms to the criminal justice system in the UK that he allowed the public to vote on as well. I'm sure this will resonate with many people who are fed up with what is going on in the world today. This is a simplistic summary of the plot, as there are some twists to it that I don't want to give away; suffice it to say, it is an interesting, fast-paced read with engaging characters.

    An ingenious plot, well written and worthy of its high ratingsGray Justice is the story of a man who has lost everything, all because of the selfish actions of a joy rider. What he cannot tolerate is the fact that this joy rider seems to feel no guilt for his crimes - and, along with a vast number of similar criminals, nothing stops him from re-offending. The sentences handed out are risible, and it would appear that the government is going to do nothing to impose harsher sentences or develop strategies to reduce the number of recidivists. So Tom Gray comes up with an ingenious plan which involves the whole population of the UK, and requires some definite and positive action from the government. What he fails to realise, though, is that one of his clever strategies results in a conclusion that he had never anticipated.This is an ingenious plot, with some surprising but well thought out twists and turns. The pace is fast, and all aspects of the book appear to be well researched - so much so that you might wonder if the author had himself been a member of the SAS. Gritty and brutal in places, McDermott paints very strong visual images throughout the story. I loved the idea of Tom Gray being more than just your average vigilante - an option that was perhaps open to him after he lost his family. Any reservations that I have are minor, and do not detract from the overall enjoyment of the story. Personally I thought that the proposed punishment was a little harsh for the crimes, and there are other offenders who were maybe more deserving of Gray’s justice. I also completely understood the motives of the protagonist, but I would have liked to have been more aware of what he was feeling. After all, this was a pretty significant undertaking, and I didn’t get much of a feel for Tom Gray ‘the man’ and how this mission was affecting him. Some of the other characters were also a little indistinct and it would have been good to recognise a number of strong and individual personalities. But these are a trivial reservations in an extremely gripping story. I wish four and a half stars were possible!Gray Justice

    When a car thief takes his 3 year old son's life, Tom Gray was devastated. He and his wife struggled to get back to a normal life. Then Tom's wife took her life because she couldn't live without her son. Tom was left alone and angry. He and some military colleagues put together a plan to kidnap and punish the young man responsible for his son's death. They decide to include other criminals too. Ones who had been given a slap on the wrist and set free to live a life of crime. While Tom is planning what to do, a group of Muslim men from Afghanistan and Pakistan are planning their own battle. They decided to attack the British on their own soil. What happens next is a battle no one expected and an out come no one could have predicted. This book is exceptional! You can put yourself in Tom Gray's place and sympathize with what he decides to do. Then to see how easily a group of terrorists can put together their own battle and threaten the lives of thousands of people is scary. I found this book to be one you just can't put down and if you do put it down, it's in your thoughts. This book will make an awesome blockbuster movie one day. The only problem I had was the rape scene. I felt it was unnecessary to include it in this particular book. They could have simply beaten her or starved her to get the info they needed.

    A Thrilling Roller Coaster Ride!Gray Justice by Alan McDermott is an intense adult thriller! It is set in England and the characters, descriptions and dialogue hooked me in the first chapter. The Lead character, Tom Gray, has a mega meltdown after his baby boy is killed by a heartless offender in a tragic car accident. Due to a disturbingly inept and uncaring court system, the murderer gets off scot-free. After his grief-stricken wife commits suicide, Tom morphs into a one-man vigilante squad.Tom kidnaps five criminals and offers them up to the public through the internet, letting the people decide whether they live or die. I related to Tom, a former Special Air Serviceman (SAS), and his need to create his own brand of justice. This is not your average revenge killer story either. There are lots of plot twists and turns I didn’t expect. I was captivated from beginning to end by Gray Justice, the first volume in this dramatic series. I look forward to reading Gray Resurrection, the second book, and believe Alan McDermott is an impressive indie writer.Tom Gray also reminded me a lot of the Charles Bronson character in the movie DEATH WISH and the Jodie Foster character in the film, THE BRAVE ONE. I believe GRAY JUSTICE has all the necessary ingredients for a fantastic action-thriller, and I would love to see it in theaters one day.

    As a debut novel, this was impeccable. The spelling and grammar issues you almost always see from self-published authors were absent, there were no major plot holes and the story was electrifying, with vivid characters and an absolutely riveting plot.It reminded me a little of The Doomsday Ultimatum by James Follett, in that the military aspects are present, but not penned with the conceited arrogance you find in some author's who've seen service and like you to know about it. Nor, refreshingly, was it dumbed down for a teen audience, yet it wasn't so complicated that you had to invest hours of thought into unraveling the story. I think it struck a pretty good balance and, even if one may have seen the revelation near the end coming, the style and execution, the sheer quality of the storytelling and the very neatly melded SAS combat action with the audacious efforts of Gray's plan wove together to form something I found very hard to put down.Of note to blind readers is that the whole trilogy is available DRM Free on Kindle and in a variety of other formats on Smashwords as well. If one of the big publishers hasn't picked this guy up yet, they really need to give him a bloody big advance for his next work.

    When a killer walks free from court, the victim's father sees just two options: accept the judge's decision; or take on the entire British justice system. Tom Gray chooses the latter and his crusade attracts instant worldwide media coverage. It was just what Tom was hoping for, but it brought him a lot more than he bargained for. (Author description)Grey Justice is about a particular kind of justice – the sort being meted out by Tom Gray - not the type currently handed out by the justice system. If you are prepared to suspend belief and buy into this thriller, then this is a great read. It is fast paced with several twists, which makes it very enjoyable. The author handles the different plots and characters with aplomb and makes the writing of a multi stranded thriller look easy – which is most certainly isn’t!The character of Tom Gray is clearly being set up to become the hero in a chain of thrillers which I hope will do well and will give the author the opportunity to develop the character of Tom Gray further. I loved it! A professional product and highly recommended read. Looking forward to reading Gray Resurrection.

    Ever believe the law to be just a little too lenient on criminals after they are caught? Why are people even able to go free when they just break laws time and time again? In Gray Justice by Alan McDermott, a man who has had his child die through a collision caused by the reckless motorist who had already been imprisoned multiple times, asks exactly this. After his wife sinks into depression and kills herself, this man(Tom Gray) feels it is his duty to capture the public’s attention and force the reform of what he sees as failed laws.The real reason the police are giving Gray’s stunt so much attention is that Tom and his friends are a military teem highly experienced in real combat. When a veteran soldier with explosives know-how claims to have a bomb positioned for the killing of thousands of innocents, authorities are naturally hesitant to anger or kill the only person who knows exactly where it is and might be able to stop the destruction it could cause. Yet, an unrelated terrorist cell that hears of the threat, quickly find the situation to be a gift direct from Allah.

    I loved this book. I think what helped to make it so special was the option to take narration with it. The technology is amazing as it allows you to choose narration and/or reading and it synchronises automatically so whichever you choose, or if you swap from one to the other, you remain at the right spot for the story to continue where you left off. This meant I could continue the book when I was driving in the car whereas normally I would have to wait until I could sit and read the kindle. I finished it much quicker this way as there weren't long breaks between opportunities to read it.The narrator helped bring the characters to life and seemed to have an endless supply of accents which was a delight to listen to, as I can only read in mine so everyone sounds the same!As the story progressed, I found myself, wondering with all the twists and turns how things could possibly turn out and at 68% of the way through I was gripped and couldn't put it down until I was finished. I'm really looking forward to continuing the series. Thank you.

    I really like the ideas that are behind this book. The government is to lenient on criminals therfore the crime rate continues to rise year after year. Liberals push to educate criminals and that will keep the crime rate down but let's face it, a lot of criminals are really intelligent they are just applying their smarts to the wrong things. Enter Tom Gray. He has suffered a great loss and the perp walked free. Tom has had enough and he has great military skills so you think he is going to exact revenge (and I would have been pleased with the book if he had) but no, Tom wants to raise awareness to the government and wants the people to have a vote. Add in some other forms of chaos and you have this book. It was a quick easy and enjoyable read. I was hoping it would go one way but then it took a turn towards the end and I was still pleased with the book. I wonder what would happen if the good people of the USA got to vote on some new punishment for crime laws? Maybe we need a Tom Gray here in the states to get the ball rolling.
