Dead Eye: A Gray Man Novel

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.

    "Finally found out about Kiev!!!"
    Where does Dead Eye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is an excellent story from an excellent series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye?

    Kiev......It was me!!!! Ive been wanting to hear about Kiev since the firt Gray man novel. Greany does an amazing job of peaking your curiosity.Now all I need to know id=s why the original SOS notice was put out on Gentry!!


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

    Jay Synder lives the story. He has a way of not just giving each individual a personality and voice, but really making you feel the individuals emotions. Dead eye is such a good villain, because hes such an asshole and an unlikeable character. Synder does an incredible job of making you hate him!!Als makes a believable hero out of Gentry. He's superman but hes also flawed, and also gets lucky.


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

    Tell me about Kiev.....!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    "Great Continuation of a Great Series"

    This has been a really enjoyable series. I had not heard of the Gray man novels before, but tried one when they had the the first book for free. I listened to that one, and then downloaded the remaining three books. I found this last book the best so far. The series is well written like the Jack Reacher series, however, I find the character actions in the Gray Man series easier to believe and more realistic. The narrator also does a great job, and I like that it is the same one for all the books so far. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Fits well into the series"

    I was hooked on the Grey man novels right from the second one. I mean I have read On Target first, actually. Then, of course I went back to read the first one.
    The figure of the Grey Man is compelling. When I was thinking about him I realized that I like a professional assassin, a serial killer, who makes hits for money. But there is something about him what makes us, readers to stand on his side. It's maybe that he kills only bad guys, which speaks about certain principles he possesses. It's maybe that he is mysterious, always slipping out of the hands of his pursuers.
    This book brings an interesting plot into play. Dead Eye is almost like the Grey Man: though, well trained, merciless killing machine. But there is a big difference: he doesn't share the same principles. When he lays out his own scheme, he draws the Grey Man into a dubious game. An assassin always is in danger, the Gray Man's life isn't different, half of the governments are after him for one reason or the other. Mostly killing somebody important. But now his troubles are augmented having Dead Eye playing games with him.
    I liked the dynamics of the story. Dead Eye tried to go trough his airtight plan, but it is not by chance that the Gray Man is considered to be the best assassin. He changed the game, and Dead Eye had to adjust.
    In this book we learn a few things from the past of the Gray Man, which adds some puzzle pieces to the his picture.
    I especially enjoyed that the final battle was played out in Belgium. I live in Overijse, where the safe-house was, I go to work on route N4 every day, and I'm familiar with Uccle and Etterbeek. It was fun to see the story to unfold in these places.
    After the fourth installment, Court Gentry is still one of my favorites, right next to Jack Reacher.

    "Don't let this be the last Gray Man Book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Eye to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Jay Snyder is so incredible! He captures every accent, every emotion, male, female, etc. You always know whos talking and can feel the excitement!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye?

    There were so many. The scene on the lake had me gripping my seat!


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING! He didn't miss a beat as usual.


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

    I did laugh, no crying but it did make my heart race a more then once.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is exceptional! I seriously hope there is more to come.

    "The Gray Man Turns Gray!"

    A whiz-bang, non-stop caper with multiple angles of pursuit. The Gray man appears to have met his match and maybe had too much of a peek into his creation this time out. This time around Gentry is getting tired and manhunt technology is evolving faster than his skills of evasion, but he is the Gray Man and he is the best.
    I'll not going to nit-pic this fine novel of intrigue and sometimes over-the-top brutality. It is superb escapist writing and I'm all for that!

    "Fast Paced and Action Packed"

    How do you stay alive when your enemy has the same lethal skills as you do? Mark Greaney has developed a complex story populated with equally complex characters The pace is rapid with so many unexpected plot twists the reader is constantly re-evaluating who, if anyone, is a good guy. While reading this book, I was unaware that it is the fourth book in the series. It is a gripping page turner.It can be read as a stand alone story, but I will, now read the preceding novels to find out what else the Gray Man has had to endure to ensure his survival.

    "SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT, BUT STILL GOOD"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would and I have! Problem is, I don't know too many people who are fans of this particular genre. I recommended it anyway thinking that anyone with eyes to see and/or ears to hear would enjoy this book simply because it's just that enjoyable.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Just when you think there's only one 'Gray Man' in the world, 'Dead Eye' comes from out of the woodwork and shakes things up completely. And then the team of Mossad agents - that seemed to be really good at their jobs - had me considering, at one point, that this book could be the end of this series.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    I love Jay Snyders voice. I never have any problems listening to him. His tone is perfect.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think its kind of difficult to be moved by this kind of book, but there was a moment that made me particularly proud of Court Gentry. Court was trained as an operative prior to the advent of a lot of the technologies that are used in the world today. There was a moment in the book when he was somewhat vulnerable and uncomfortable with the idea of having to depend on technology to keep him alive, but he made the decision to fall back on his initial training and it ultimately saved his life.

    "Gripping stuff"

    The Grey Man is in trouble again. In this story he needs all his wits to stay ahead of the mob chasing him. Will he ever find a friend who will give him support and not stab him in the back? Mark Greaney has given us another thriller, very much in the vein of Ludlum's Bourne series. Great listen.

    "Mark Greaney does it again - Great Book!"
    Where does Dead Eye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a really good action suspense novel. I rate it right up there with some of my favorites ie: Reacher, Pendergast, Davenport and Cage.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Court Gentry can't keep out of danger! The Gray Man books move right along and I usually listen to them in one to two days.


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

    Jay Snyder is The Gray Man! After 4 books I don't think it would sound right if read by anyone else.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end. When Court "comes home". That's been a running theme through out all of the Gray Man books.

    Story
    "Despite flaws still a hell of a ride"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Fast paced and engaging


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Greaney before, how does this one compare?

    While this is not the strongest of the Gray Man series it still has redeeming features and it does still have the engagingly flawed character in Court Gentry


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Court's mission to a Russian dacha was fast & furious that finished to soon. I had to go back and relisten.


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

    While the story and pace generally kept me engaged some of the character inconsistencies and weak spots in the plot stretched my suspension of disbelief. Still it was worth the read.


    Any additional comments?

    Greaney delivers his usual face paced narrative and a wonderfully engaging character in Court Gentry, that for me had echoes of Ludlum's Jason Bourne. Overall I am still enjoying this series.

    "13 hours 40 mins I will never get back"

    Oh dear - I don't think this was a wise choice for me - contracts for killing, subterfuge and general evil. I haven't read anything by this author before, the synopsis didn't give me the awareness of how thoroughly unpleasant it was. I wasn't really taken with any of the lead characters, and I didn't enjoy the story at all.
    I can understand that some people have enjoyed this book, but it really wasn't for me! What a waste of a valuable credit!
