    Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    Julius Butcher says: "Fits well into the series"
    "Every book in the series improves."

    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Yes. The story line is very strong and the characters well developed.


    What other book might you compare Dead Eye to and why?

    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Many characters ,many voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes very saddened at one point.

    The brand new Jack Reacher short story, published as a digital exclusive. The tiny town of Naismith has nothing going for it - except the start of a wilderness trail through Maine's ancient forests. But one day the trail is suddenly closed by county police. No reason is given. Rumours start - is there something in the woods that no one must see? That no one must even know about? Then Jack Reacher drifts into town. What does he make of the Do Not Enter tape strung between the trees?

    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Kerry Shale?

    Yes. A great author hero and performer.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    It was boring and lacked action and drama.The first Lee Child book that has disappointed me.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The Performer tried to make something of a pot-boiler.


    What character would you cut from Not a Drill?

    If I was Lee Child I would not have published this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am sorry to be negative as I am a great admirer of Lee Child.
