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.

Maybe. It was kind of long.
It was pretty good.
This was a little more realistic than some I have read by this author.
I want to like Mark Greaney's Cort Gentry. Really, I do. But at some point something has to go realistically right for the world's unluckiest man.
I am going to download Book 5 right after writing this, but not with the enthusiasm that I had for the first book in the series. It's more of an obligation.
Jay Snyder is very good and keeps you attuned to the book.
Greaney's writing though could have cut about half the book. In one of the earlier book, a character describes Gentry in vulgar terms, but to make it more G-rated, as if it were raining gold bars, Gentry would get hit by a concrete brick.
At some point, the one thing going wrong after another thing going wrong becomes too much. And that's the problem. This book could have been trimmed by a couple of hours by getting rid of several of the ludicrous situations.
If you have gotten to this book thus far in the series, you might as well read it. If it's your first, you are likely not to pick up another. Greaney is a good writer, otherwise Tom Clancy would never have entrusted him with the Jack Ryan series, but suspending disbelief comes hard after about the third Murphy's law situation in a row occurring on the same day or next day in sequence. It's overkill.
Does a great job of getting you emotionally involved in the story and characters and we learn a lot more about the history of Court Gentry.
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.
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!
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.
