    Story
    (1901)

    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.

    "Great end to the series...or is it the end?"

    Story
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Most definitely. I love the series and have read all of the previous titles. With the exception of book 2 (that was a little lack luster), this was by far my favorite. It was refreshing to see Cort Gentry go against someone of a similar nature ( a fellow assassin). The story kept me intrigued until the end and the battles that ensued between Cort & Russ were awe-inspiring! As always it was action packed & you find yourself rooting for The Gray Man yet again.


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

    Mark Greaney co-writes with Tom Clancy, so I'd have to say it does have a Tom Clancy-ish feel to it (Jack Ryan). I would also say that this series holds it's on as well.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've said it before & I'll say it again. If they give out Oscar's for audio narration he would get one hands down. Phenomenal narration throughout the book. There was never a second guess about what character was what, even the female characters. His ability to distinguish each & every character whether Russian, Iranian, English or American Snyder delivers. I don't know how many languages Jay Snyder speaks, but his dialect was perfect with every different person. Jay Snyder is one if not the best narrator I've had the pleasure to experience in an audiobook. Period.


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

    Neither. It mad me very anxious. Anxious to hear the next chapter, see who dies & how. This book definitely plays with your emotions, at least it did for me. The narrator is so good at painting a picture of Cort Gentry, you feel as if he is a real person, someone that you would actually know...and maybe even like. Well, I mean if you were into tall, dark & handsome former CIA operatives who happen to be assassins in their spare time. The storyline forces you to be Cort's ally. You want to get out there with your AK-47 or 9MM and kill some people too...all in the name of justifiable revenge of coarse.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED it! I hope...really hope...that The Gray Man has not retired. If so, it was a proper end to the series.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Jason Spencer says: "Action packed, edge of your seat "page-turner""
    "A welcome surprise for my first Mark Greaney book."

    Would you listen to The Gray Man again? Why?

    Yes, it was full of action and suspense & an intriguing storyline.


    What other book might you compare The Gray Man to and why?

    James Patterson-Kill Me If You CanEric Jerome Dickey-Gideon seriesThe lone assassin story line is very similar, as well as the amount of action & suspense. You will definitely not be disappointed with the story line.


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

    Jay Snyder is an amazing narrator! I've listened to dozens & dozens of audio books and some I can't even get through the first CD because the narrator is so monotone & dull. Snyder is excellent at shifting from one character to the next, giving each voice it's own personality & distinctiveness. You can really envision each character as each one is introduced.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    And you think you've had a hard day? Meet The Gray Man!


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome read that now has me hooked on this author. I look forward to hearing the next set of books and catching up on this series. Very enjoyable read that kept me excitited & anxious to hear more.
