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.

Well read action packed book. I picked up a small typo/ narator's error when describing an AK47 rifle , was read as AK74, minor glitch in an amazing performance, all good and s most enjoyable book, thanks to all involved
After reading all the reviews, and noting that "The Grey man" is a little too super human, I was pleasantly suprised. This is my first of the series, but I have read/listened to a few more of the genre, and all the heroes are super super heroes. Would hardly be able to make a series out of standard ops boys, making it through a book and a half. Bond,Rain, Bourne and now The grey man all the best of the best. I was engaged through out the whole listen, and enjoyed the pace of the read/listen. Jay Snyders take on the only female part in the book was the only weakness in his narrative. This was a great deal of the day purchase, and I have now another of the series in my library.
I listened to this book on audio. This was not the first book I have listened to in the Grey Man series.
However. Due to time constraints etc it took me forever to get to this book. When I started it I was a bit...hesitant. I mean really, what can happen to Court that has not already befallen this poor man.
So I stopped, started, stopped and before I knew it I was hooked and found myself wondering why on earth it took me this long to dive back into the world of the ultimate spook.
This book was a wee bit slower than the first one I listened too. Note. Slower not slow. A lot more character development and boy if you love firearms this one is a must read.
Is this book for males only? No. I loved it. I love the moral debates, the backstabbing. The general chaos and mayhem of a world in which your own shadow can turn against you!
I loved it. Betting you will as well.
As for the narrator...this man IS Court Gentry!
I love the Gray Man series and this entry is the best of the lot. Very fast paced at times and a good performance. If you enjoy the series, you will like this one!
Awesome, awesome, awesome - the GRAY MAN series gives the BOURNE series a run for its money and if the producers in Hollywood haven’t picked up on what would be a fantastic series set to the big screen than they are simply not paying attention!
In Book 4 of The Gray Man series, ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry is still trying to stay out of light and into the shadows. With so many entities out to kill him including the US Government, Court is having more and more difficulty remaining in the shadows. On his last assignment of taking revenge on a former employer who betrayed him, a killer very much like Court has now set his sights on him.
Russell Whitlock, code-named Dead Eye, is a graduate of the same secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and controlled Court. However, Dead Eye is going rogue in order to frame and terminate his ultimate target - Court Gentry and earn the distinction of being the one man who could take Court down.
In another of Greaney’s fabulous additions to his Gray Man series, I can say one might need oxygen handy as the suspense is so tense I find myself holding my breath through this authors amazing detailed descriptions of the blow-by-blow action. Greaney’s writing is astounding bringing you right along with the Gray Man’s adventures and heart-stopping suspense which he masterfully generates.
Bottom line: Mark Greaney’s Gray Man books are top notch and DEAD EYE is just one more example of the best you may find in CIA black OPs thrillers! AWESOME!
I didn't realize how much of a prude I am but the frequent and seemingly worthless swearing sprinkled about made what would have been a relatively strong story somewhat adolescent and immature.
Nonstop action for the Gray Man as he first takes out an old enemy and then goes on the run from a new wine
