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.

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.
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
I enjoyed the Gray Man series at first, but it has become so formulaic and predictable that I only listened to the first 5 chapters and then the last 2 chapters to see what happened. It was exactly as I thought. As pointed out by a reviewer of one of the Gray Man novels, I was reminded of Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail when the Black Knight challenged our heroes to a fight. As each of the Black Knight's limbs were chopped off, he laughed and claimed it was only a flesh wound and kept fighting until he was just a round blob. Same goes in each book with the Gray Man. At the end of each he is battered, bruised, shot, stabbed, frozen and pounded. With bits and pieces of him scattered all over the country, he manages in the end to keep fighting - and we still don't get any answers or closure. I cannot endure another book in this series. I will leave it to the rest of his fans. Be sure you have plenty of bandages , splints, pain killers, antibiotics and blankets ready to patch him up and bring him back to health.
GRAY MAN WEAKNESSES SHOW HIM NOT TO BE SUCH A SUPERMAN AS ORIGINAL BOOK. CROOKED POLITICOS STILL THERE, BUT STILL SOME PRINCIPALED KILLERS.
NOT REALLY. PRETTY EASY TO PREDICT.
PROJECTED DEAD EYE'S EGOTISTICAL NATURE WELL.
LAUGH, BUT STILL HAD HIGH SPOTS
No. It's not as good (IMHO) as the previous books. While I liked the premise, it was long on talk and planning and short on action (something I never thought I'd say about one of Mark's books.)
No, in fact it got a little unbelievable and tiresome in spots.
I liked when he was driving down the road in the van. Court really is the man!
No, and usually I'm on the edge of my seat with the Grayman.
"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.
"Gray man back on form"
After a great start then two slightly lesser outings, this is gray man back on form again. Really enjoyed it.
"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!
