    What did you love best about Dead Eye?

    Court Gentry. Great name for a badass guy who doesn't want to be a badass guy.

    Reacher books somewhat; Suarez books, deMille books


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Didn't distract from the storyline


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It wasn't that kind of book. Unbelievable but lots of fun

    "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.

    "Wow! Can hardly wait for the next one!"

    Mark Greaney has hit a home run. Court Gentry is about the most engaging and compelling character I have ever read and Greaney's vivid and non-verbose writing style is fantastic. I become very emotionally involved in these stories which is a tribute to the skill of the author and the great delivery of the narrator. Just great stuff, informative, well researched and definitely edge-of-seat fare.

    I love reading, but my busy schedule usually keeps me from it. Audio Books have always been a fall back, even for long trips to anywhere!

    Story
    "Good Book, but predictable"
    What did you love best about Dead Eye?

    The way each party was introduced and then later tied together, made for a slightly predictable plot, but was very enjoyable. I can see where some people would be put off about all the "second-guessing" everyone does in the book, but based on the style I felt that it was very believeable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mark Greaney? Why or why not?

    I don't think it wouldn't hurt, especially if there was more on Court Gentry. Making it a sort of Jason Bourne-esk spinoff.


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

    Actually reading a book I'm able to imagine my own voices for a character, since this was not a full cast and crew reading...He did better than many others. But not as good as a full cast and crew reading would have been.


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

    Dead Eye: Trouble in Brussels!

    Story
    "NonStop Gritty Action Adventure I <3 The Gray Man"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Eye to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the print version but cannot fathom that my imagination would have done as good of a job as Jay Snyder - he gets better with each Gray Man performance!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Gray Man, Court Gentry. He is a man's man and 'real life' super hero. Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock which made him the perfect [oops almost spoiler] companion/adversary for Gentry.

    Fantastic writing!

    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.



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

    He is just fantastic. His portrayal of all the different [mostly] male characters were easily distinguished - the accents from American to German & Israeli, etc. were spot on. Excellent job!


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

    Suspense!!! I was on the edge of my seat and holding my breath throughout... I was angry with the CIA.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a REAL action/suspense/thriller...many of my reviews are for actions wrapped around romances (Suzanne Brockmann). This is the REAL deal - not a romance...along the line of Vince Flynn & Tom Clancy.

    "Best story so far"

    Court Gentry is a hero who everyone wants to make a villain. In this most recent novel, it is made more clear that he is being targeted by people high up in the US government for all the wrong reasons. We've always know that as readers, but this novel makes it very clear that Court is a victim of someone, somewhere, who wants him dead.

    The action is continuous. The storytelling is excellent. I was not 100% thrilled with the narration, but not enough to downgrade my overall score. I strongly suggest starting at the beginning of the series -- "The Gray Man" -- in order to understand Court's character.

    "The Gray Man"

    As in a lot of my reading, since finding audible books, I have found that certain style of books I enjoy listening to more than actually reading it. This is a great series. Lots of action good story lines and easy to picture the scenarios without even trying. If you like adventure and action and a good hero, listen to the series.

    "Another home run by Mark Greaney"

    Just finished Deadeye by Mark Greaney last night and all I can say is wow. Another solid book that starts fast and doesn't slow down and we finally get the truth about the Kiev op. In this book Gentry meets what I would call his alter personality or what he could've been if he wasn't as conscientious and was a little bit greedy. Somebody with all the skills of the Gray Man and no qualms about killing regardless of the moral validity of the target. Deadeye is in his head and on his trail as well as Mossad and some contract operators from the USA. Jay Snider does an excellent job with the narration as usual. If you follow Mark on Facebook he has recently been posting some great pictures of his research trips to various locales around the globe and they really help with visualizing the story. Click the link, buy the book.

    Story
    "Not what I expected"
    What did you like best about Dead Eye? What did you like least?

    I thought the fast paced story line kept the reader engaged but the plot was a little too far fetched and unbelievable at times.


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

    I figured it would end something like that. No real surprises


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I guess he did a good job considering the subject matter and faced paced action of the book I was engaged but felt at times the characters sounded too similar it was hard to differentiate between them


    Do you think Dead Eye needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Im sure there will be a sequel. This kind of book is set up for another one to come along with even more violence and shoot em out fast paced CIA operatives gone rogue..


    Any additional comments?

    A little too predictable! Reminded me of a blockbuster Hollywood movie where everything is blown up constantly and everyone is running for their lives. It was entertaining though and I did like the fact that it kept me engaged.
