Dead Eye: A Gray Man Novel | [Mark Greaney]

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. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    Story
    "I am in love with the Gray Man!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh most definitely! I love everything the story, the character, the narrator. My only disappointment s that this seems to be the last book in the series so far.


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

    The entire book was memorable I am hard pressed to recall a single memorable moment. I guess I was really glad that the Israelis recognized his efforts and wanted to help him and I was happy that he finally returned to the USA and it seems his next operation would be to take out the hated Carmichael.


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

    He does a great job narrating Gentry! I think he makes Gentry more Human, than Super-human.


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

    Hell Yes!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly, highly recommend listening/reading to the entire Court Gentry series. I absolutely cannot wait for the next Court Gentry adventure. Did I mention that I have a huge crush on Court Gentry.

    Story
    "Lingusitic inaccuracies and a bad reader."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A narrator who can pronounce the foreign words (and some English ones) correctly, or at least close to correct. And an author who checks basic facts. He claimed a major character could understand the jist of a Farsi conversation because he spoke Arabic, which is similar. Wrong. Farsi (the language of Iran and Afghanistan, i.e. Persian) is Indoeuropean, like Sanskrit, German, Greek, and Latin. Arabic is in a completely different language family and is a Semitic language like Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I thought it drug on a bit, milking the suspense.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jay Snyder’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The first book by this author I listened to was OK. He's a mediocre writer with shallow, stock characters, but offers decent suspense. This one started to feel repetitive and did not sustain my interest as much as the first one.

    Story
    "A Better Twist on "Get Him Before He Gets You""

    The "Gray Man" is or will soon become a legendary character. A smart and ruthless killer, he is vulnerable and human. He is a reluctant freelancer with a "code" and a desire to return to legitimacy but someone at the CIA desperately wants him dead. His personal angst and conflicts are deftly written into the story - not preachy or overdone - just woven in to build a complex character. A similarly trained and skilled operative is searching for the Gray Man as part of a CIA contracted kill team. The story develops in a well constructed and complicated way to a mano e mano between the two killers.The intensity, twists and action are enormously well crafted until the final showdown which, in my opinion, was very contrived and went on for much too long. This is a fast paced thriller that will be difficult to turn off. Like me, I'm sure you will be eager to move on to the next Gray man novel.

    Any additional comments?

    I guess I have to agree with the other reviews I saw. This definitely didn't live up to the potential of the first book. So disappointing.

    "A best of type writer"
    If you could sum up Dead Eye in three words, what would they be?

    Believable, exciting, suspenseful


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

    The frozen pond


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Jay provided smooth transition to numerous characters quietly but effectively. He was invisible and provided the real feeling of the story.Greaney and The Grey Man are believable have heart and soul while being ruthless when necessary. Brad and Mark write excellent books.


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

    The Grey Man has a desire to be human while performing kills. He needs a woman with his beliefs that each other can appreciate.I feel sorry for Cort, The Grey Man, as he struggles thru life. Some one help him, Please!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Mark has an unusual talent to write expressive, feeling and dramatic current stories.If espionage and intrigue are your hot button this guy will light your fire.I would like to see Scott Harvath and The Grey Man collaborate to save Australia from a nuclear holocaust. Scott would be the violent no feeling killer a Brad Thor authored and The Grey Man could finesse a violent but reasonable solution.Damn shame there are only four books in The Grey Man series.Get to work Mark!

    "Another Great Gray Man Adventure!"

    Mark Greaney has tapped into a character that will ensure for as long as he can dream up stories as intense and interesting as Dead Eye and the ones before. I really loved Dead Eye. The pace from the very beginning is nonstop, there are no long dull passages, If you love action....this is your kind of character and novel. An assassin with a moral compass, who has the whole world out to kill him, overcomes every challenge to win the day, time and time again, and in the most unusual ways. All I can say is, long live the Gray Man. I pre-order Gray Man novels as soon as they are available. So far, every one has been a winner.

    "Gray Man Still Rocking"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Yes I will in a year or so. I'm sure I'll hear on understand something more the next time around.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The introduction of Dead Eye. He was very easy to despise and and root against.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The castle entry and ensuing battle.


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

    Don't have a tag line but I would cast Matt Damon as Cort.

    Story
    "Impressed with this author!"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Absolutely I will listen to Dead Eye again. Each of Mark Greaney's books contain so much detail (but not boring detail!) that I want to listen again to make sure I have caught everything. The characters, the action, the plot - everything is worth a second or third listen!


    What other book might you compare Dead Eye to and why?

    I've seen the Gray Man compared to Jason Bourne and think that is an appropriate comparison as far as the character goes. If you like the Bourne series, there is a great chance you will love this series as well.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Jay Snyder kept me captivated throughout the book. I think his timing is impeccable. He knows when to be deadpan and when to "jazz up" his voice depending on the character and situation. I've not felt that he was over the top at any point in his narration. I will be seeking out more of his work!


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all four in this series and am absolutely hooked. If you haven't tried them but love spy novels or thrillers, give these a shot. Certainly start from the beginning though!
