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.

I loved the story line, but the fight scenes were a little long for my tastes. I loved Snyder. Overall it was excellent. I couldn't wait to get in the car to listen.
really hoping for more in this series! I've really enjoyed it and sincerely hope the movie happens. I think parts of this specific book would do well in a movie
This book had me on edge from the very start until the very end. An amazing action filled tale. There were several twists and turns. I was a huge fan of the first book in the series, not so much a fan of On Target or Ballistic, but this one brought me right back in. I never knew what was really going to happen, but I was always anticipating more. Great job Greaney.
I gave 5 stars to every book in this series so far. Even though I enjoyed this book I'm dropping it to 4 stars due to an event that I thought was too far fetched. Can't tell you what that is of course. You may not even see what I'm talking about. Just enjoy another gray man novel.
I really enjoyed this series but I'm disappointed by the dumbing down of the characters. Could have been much better but the jumping around aimlessly lost me over and over again.
The story is the most interesting yet, and the action is constant. Mark Greaney has always been good at action, but the plot and the characters are better developed than in previous books. The villain is well developed, you really are waiting for the SOB to meet a well deserved end. Greaney needs to let characters develop and not stay stuck for ever in the same mold! Thats part of the fun of imagining he gets a little enjoyment in life. But like i said, this was still the best story yet. Greaney;s work with Clarke has paid dividends on plotting and character development. Well done. SPOILER ALERT - Bond gets laid, Bourne gets laid, why can't the Gray Man get laid???
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!
