Publisher's Summary

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. But now, Whitlock is a free agent who has been directed to terminate his fellow student of death. He knows how his target thinks, how he moves, and how he kills. And he knows the best way to do the job is to make Gentry run for his life - right up until the moment Dead Eye finally ends it.

    "A great addition to the Gray Man Series"

    Dead Eye was a bit slower than some of the other Gray Man novels. Yes it’s still got a lot of action in the start and the end but it gets a bit slow middle as the story develops. If you’ve read the other novels in the series then you know what waits in store for you (action, static characters and plots which are a bit predictable but still fun) so if you like them you’ll like this one as well. It’s a fun addition to the Gray Man story and sets up an interesting path for the next book.

    As always Jay Snyder does a great job with the narration bringing to life the various characters along with good pacing.

    "Not Just for the Guys"

    This is a man's book, full of male energy. However the cringing, nail biting, screams and fear for the Gray Man's life were all mine -- and I'm 100% woman. Although I love the whole concept of espionage, this book is a big departure from my usual genres. The fast-paced, gun blazing action starts immediately, accompanied by the rugged bass of the narrator, initially seemed to come at me in jabs. Once I caught on to what was happening in the story, Court Gentry grew on me and I looked forward to every listen. With every chapter, my hatred for Dead Eye grew and in my mind, Court became hotter and hotter! The story is jam packed with hard hitting action that draws you into every gun fight & knuckle bruising brawl. If you're into action, it's worth the credit.

    "Greaney keeps getting better."

    I just love this series. For me, Gentry is the anti-hero as his best. Greaney seems to get better with every book, and I'm already looking forward to the next installment. If you're looking for a great thriller series, look no farther.

    "Fantastic series so far!"

    Outstanding book. Liked it ever more than the first in the series, and I loved that one in particular. Recommend to read entire set as there are some references to the previous plots. Very comparable to the Bourne series, but I enjoyed these more. I only had a few eye rolling moments when you had to suspend reality because the laws of probability or physics where seriously tested again. Nonetheless, lots of fun...

    Story
    "Another Gray Man classis"
    Where does Dead Eye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's definitely up there along side the others, I'm not sure I have a favorite as they each bring something different to the overall story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The further development of the back story, where does the gray man come from and why is he being hunted.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    I liked all of them, sometimes you get a narrator who really annoys you with a particular character, but not in this case, it was just a good solid performance.


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

    Has the gray man finally met his match?

    "great action"
    If you could sum up Dead Eye in three words, what would they be?

    action,obstacles overcome


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

    A struggle on the ice between the protagonists.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes. Finished all 4 books in the series in 2 weeks


    Any additional comments?

    Great 4th book hope there is more. I liked that the main character has flaws and does not come through the actions unscathed. If you like action and interesting plots this is a fun series. I agree 21st century Ludlum.

    "Good listen"

    Perhaps the story will not keep you on the edge of you seat to the same degree as the first three Gray Man novels but the this installment has multiple characters at play which is something new for Greaney perhaps his collaboration with the late Tom Clancy has helped this aspect.

    "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!

    "action, action lots of action"

    I have seen Mark Greaney name on books by Tom Clancy, I guess they were co-authors. It has been sometime since I read a book that has been none stop action and suspense. This is the forth book in the Gray man series. The book opens with Court Gentry (the gray man) making a covert entry and hit into the high profile home of a Russian Mobster, the action does not stop until the end of the book. Court goes from one crisis, escape, etc. throughout the book. Dead Eye another rouge CIA agent is out to assassinate the Israel prime minister and Gentry must stop him. Greaney seems to have knowledge of the geography of the area covered in the book but also of munitions, hand to hand combat and covert surveillance techniques with the use of small drones. This part of the story I found most interesting. Greaney appears to have great plotting skills and a flare for gripping suspense. The book makes for an exhausting/exciting get away book. Jay Snyder does a good job narrating the book.

    "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.

    "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.

    "The Best Grey Man Novel so far"

    The Grey man is a special individual. He lives a somewhat sad and lonely existence, constantly trying be one step ahead of those who are out for his blood, while simultaneously working as a hitman, killing those who are deemed to be in the lower echelons of humanity. A hitman with a conscience, if that's possible.
    This book for me, was the best so far in the grey man series. The story line was excellent, and I was not expecting it when I read the blurb. It has plenty of twists and turns, and it brings you along at just the right pace.
    Once again, the downside of this book was the narrator. His accents are not very good, and he makes people sound like they are straight out of a cheesy movie.
    I am already looking forward to the next in the series, as there is a little teaser of what's to come at the the end of this book.

    "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!
