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.

No matter where you go, there you are.
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!
List of favorite books: Woodcutter - Reginald Hill, Consent to Kill, First Deadly Sin - Lawrence Sanders, Sniper Elite - Scott McEwen
I tried and tried. I don't know what kind of koolaid everyone is drinking. I'd like to give Mark Greaney and the Gray Man a big hug. We have a super sensitive assassin + A super sensitive Mossad agent. How many times in one book can you mention that the Gray man is the most infamous, most deadliest, and the most heard of, and recognizable assassins in the world? Is this guy going to be on the cover of People magazine next. Top 10 available assassins? My mom could find this guy with as many other people who did. I was disappointed with the first Gray man Novel & thought I would never try another one. The 1st book was like a Monty Python movie. The only thing still left on the Gray man was his head & he still won the fight. I saw so many reviews with 5 stars - I had to give this book a shot. I was sure I would at least find this one enjoyable. After 1 full part & half of the second - I deleted it. I couldn't take it anymore. The Enemy and The Game by Tom Wood will have you drooling if you like this stuff. Try Consent to kill by Vince Flynn and you will have to take a cold shower if stuff like this gets people going. What's the saying? If not liking this book is wrong - I don't want to be right.
It is an excellent story from an excellent series.
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!!
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.
Tell me about Kiev.....!!!!
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...
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.
The further development of the back story, where does the gray man come from and why is he being hunted.
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.
Has the gray man finally met his match?
A struggle on the ice between the protagonists.
yes. Finished all 4 books in the series in 2 weeks
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.
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.
I have heard all 4 of the Gray Men novels - the narrator is spot on! The action and suspense is very exciting.
The formula of the series is starting to be evident after 4 installments. Mix it up some so it won't be predictable in future installments. I know Mr. Greaney is the heir apparent to the Clancey series - will this be the last Gray Man?
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.
No, been there done that.
Ruth. I was really made to care about her.
Yes, other Gray Man stories. All very well done.
Yes. But I won't say what because it would be a spoiler.
Cant wait for the next.
"Despite flaws still a hell of a ride"
Fast paced and engaging
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
Court's mission to a Russian dacha was fast & furious that finished to soon. I had to go back and relisten.
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.
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!
