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.

Some fantastical moments that were unreal; nice pace; intricate story line; narration better than average; will read more.
This was an entertaining Gray Man novel but it began to drag on with lots of repetitive thoughts and comments by both the Protagonist and antagonist. Some plot maneuvers looked like they were inserted to burn up pages before getting to the meat of the story. Some characters are one dimensional. Performance is very good.
Sure, they are entertaining. Already read the Gray Man and liked it.
He's a good voice actor; I like his work.
This is the best of the series I've read so far. The ending is gut wrenching! The story is very ,very good!
The plot kept me on the edge of my seat because the story line seemed predictable but the plot twists when you think you've nailed it!
The narrator is like an orchestra conductor. He set the tempo, raised and controlled my interest in the story. I couldn't put it down.
Happiness, to me, is being able to look back and think to myself, "Well, that was fun!" Oh, there are regrets - but they are so worth it...
Can't say, but Jay reads this better than I would. Thinking about it, I'd give the print version a go someday to see what he missed.
Gentry, of course! He's the classic cut operative, but Greaney gives him a very dark and instinctive edge that I crave for, topped with a little dark humor that surprised me with a smile out of my focused listening experience.
Again, can't say for this question. I simply have not read the book.
It made me want to take a walk on a dark, rainy night with a concealed piece, dodging from shadow to shadow and tossing in an occasional jog.
The Gray Man is a figure of speech for lone, spooky figures in multitudes of context. The series lives up to what I would expect of such a legend.
"Despite flaws still a hell of a ride"
Fast paced and engaging
While this is not the strongest of the Gray Man series it still has redeeming features and it does still have the engagingly flawed character in Court Gentry
Court's mission to a Russian dacha was fast & furious that finished to soon. I had to go back and relisten.
While the story and pace generally kept me engaged some of the character inconsistencies and weak spots in the plot stretched my suspension of disbelief. Still it was worth the read.
Greaney delivers his usual face paced narrative and a wonderfully engaging character in Court Gentry, that for me had echoes of Ludlum's Jason Bourne. Overall I am still enjoying this series.
"The Best Grey Man Novel so far"
The Grey man is a special individual. He lives a somewhat sad and lonely existence, constantly trying be one step ahead of those who are out for his blood, while simultaneously working as a hitman, killing those who are deemed to be in the lower echelons of humanity. A hitman with a conscience, if that's possible.
This book for me, was the best so far in the grey man series. The story line was excellent, and I was not expecting it when I read the blurb. It has plenty of twists and turns, and it brings you along at just the right pace.
Once again, the downside of this book was the narrator. His accents are not very good, and he makes people sound like they are straight out of a cheesy movie.
I am already looking forward to the next in the series, as there is a little teaser of what's to come at the the end of this book.
"I really enjoy the series about the GRAY MAN"
LOVED it as always once u start its hard 2 stop...
I like the adventurers of the EX Spy
"13 hours 40 mins I will never get back"
Oh dear - I don't think this was a wise choice for me - contracts for killing, subterfuge and general evil. I haven't read anything by this author before, the synopsis didn't give me the awareness of how thoroughly unpleasant it was. I wasn't really taken with any of the lead characters, and I didn't enjoy the story at all.
I can understand that some people have enjoyed this book, but it really wasn't for me! What a waste of a valuable credit!
