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.

    "Over the top and unrealistic"

    It's books like this when I really miss Mitch Rapp. There were so many scenes in the story that were just so unrealistic and unbelievable, it really was a chore to finish the book. The battle in the end was the worst and I just rolled my eyes while listening to it.

    "Action but no story"

    I listened to half but I had to return this one. Lots of action but very little story to care about.

    Story
    "Violator Sierra Six"

    I have listened to a couple of books in Mark Gearney's "The Gray Man" series. I've started to imagine what the shadowy rogue agent Courtland Gentry might be like if I saw him at the local 7-11. He'd be wearing jeans and a t-shirt and a black baseball cap; open the door for the elderly woman coming in just behind him; pick out a triangle sandwich, an apple and milk; and make a friendly nod as he pays the young clerk with cash, carefully looking down so his face isn't caught on the security camera. Gentry'd be a wraith, forgotten as soon as he leaves the store.

    If internet rumors are true, I'll find out how some Hollywood director sees Gentry, but probably not as soon as I'd like. I hope the movie's based on "Dead Eye" (2013), because it's really good. This is a thriller and "The Gray Man" is a series, so it's no spoiler to say that Gentry lives. The question is what's his mission; who's trying to stop and kill him, and why; and what technologically innovative way he uses to survive.

    What I really liked is that Gearney developed two really complex characters, including a great female character. She's a kick a** American born Israeli intelligence officer, serving in the legendary Mossad. I'm a chick, and I like to have someone I can identify with. I'm middle aged, and I finally admitted to myself that I'm never going to find myself absorbed in a romance novel, or identify with E. L. James' Anastasia Steele and the (other) Grey man. I'm glad Gearney wrote a woman character I admire in a genre I like.

    The plot was intricate, and it took a long time to figure out what was going on. I could have avoided the suspense by reading the publisher's synopsis, but that would have taken the anticipation out of the listen. What's the fun in that?

    The title of the review is Gentry's CIA covert operator name, and his security access code.

    "a shootem up book."

    Boring, unless you like lots of swearing, ego-maniacs for main characters, and have male teenage level interests.

    "another great gray man"

    this is the third one of the gray man novels that I have listen to. And this was the most enjoyable and most unpredictable of the three I would highly recommend it.

    "Dead Eye vs Grey Man! Say what!"

    Someone who's just like grey man! I've been listening to these books back to back for the past few weeks and I've not been disappointed yet. I can't wait to start Back Blast and see what the next chapter in Court's life is. Mark Greaney has done an awesome job with this series!

    "Story had too many holes"

    Very disappointed. Story line was weak. Top security people were really stupid, this way it made it easier for the author- it just seemed like he was too lazy to come up with more credible scenarios.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the Gray Man series at first, but it has become so formulaic and predictable that I only listened to the first 5 chapters and then the last 2 chapters to see what happened. It was exactly as I thought. As pointed out by a reviewer of one of the Gray Man novels, I was reminded of Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail when the Black Knight challenged our heroes to a fight. As each of the Black Knight's limbs were chopped off, he laughed and claimed it was only a flesh wound and kept fighting until he was just a round blob. Same goes in each book with the Gray Man. At the end of each he is battered, bruised, shot, stabbed, frozen and pounded. With bits and pieces of him scattered all over the country, he manages in the end to keep fighting - and we still don't get any answers or closure. I cannot endure another book in this series. I will leave it to the rest of his fans. Be sure you have plenty of bandages , splints, pain killers, antibiotics and blankets ready to patch him up and bring him back to health.
