Dead Eye: A Gray Man Novel

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.

    "Keeping with the Gray Man for Now"

    This was another action packed, far-fetched gray man story. I definitely end up liking the gray man, though the plot in these books is pretty out there. They are, however, excellent to listen to on long car trips because the action is non-stop and you don't find yourself wanting to doze off because the pace is slow or the narrator drones on.

    So, if you want to stay awake during those long trips, I recommend the gray man.

    "The Gray Man Meets his Match"

    Mark Greaney brings the Gray Man back for another adventure and this time he's up against someone who thinks and acts precisely the same way he does. I love these books and can't say enough good things about them. The story twists and turns and surprises you, all the while keeping up the action and the suspense.

    One thing that bothers me about this book and the ones before it. The Gray Man never knows what he did or what happened to get the CIA on his butt and trying to kill him. It's been 4 books now! Please spill the beans and reveal the mystery! How long can this go on? We need the answers. Each book seems to bring us closer to the answers, but just when we think we are getting close the prize is pulled away.

    Story
    "Great end to the series...or is it the end?"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Most definitely. I love the series and have read all of the previous titles. With the exception of book 2 (that was a little lack luster), this was by far my favorite. It was refreshing to see Cort Gentry go against someone of a similar nature ( a fellow assassin). The story kept me intrigued until the end and the battles that ensued between Cort & Russ were awe-inspiring! As always it was action packed & you find yourself rooting for The Gray Man yet again.


    What other book might you compare Dead Eye to and why?

    Mark Greaney co-writes with Tom Clancy, so I'd have to say it does have a Tom Clancy-ish feel to it (Jack Ryan). I would also say that this series holds it's on as well.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've said it before & I'll say it again. If they give out Oscar's for audio narration he would get one hands down. Phenomenal narration throughout the book. There was never a second guess about what character was what, even the female characters. His ability to distinguish each & every character whether Russian, Iranian, English or American Snyder delivers. I don't know how many languages Jay Snyder speaks, but his dialect was perfect with every different person. Jay Snyder is one if not the best narrator I've had the pleasure to experience in an audiobook. Period.


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

    Neither. It mad me very anxious. Anxious to hear the next chapter, see who dies & how. This book definitely plays with your emotions, at least it did for me. The narrator is so good at painting a picture of Cort Gentry, you feel as if he is a real person, someone that you would actually know...and maybe even like. Well, I mean if you were into tall, dark & handsome former CIA operatives who happen to be assassins in their spare time. The storyline forces you to be Cort's ally. You want to get out there with your AK-47 or 9MM and kill some people too...all in the name of justifiable revenge of coarse.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED it! I hope...really hope...that The Gray Man has not retired. If so, it was a proper end to the series.

    Story
    "Boiled Down Bourne"


    Take the Bourne stories and shave away character development, simplify the plot to good guy runs/bad guys chase, and you’ve got the Gray Man stories.

    This is not necessarily a criticism. What remains is a consistent character – Court Gentry will always be a “singleton,” a lone operator, his character will never be complicated by relationships, and whatever trouble he gets into he will rely only upon himself and his wits to get out of it.

    What we miss are answers to questions like how did Gentry become who he is? Why does the government want him dead? After four books we’re still left with vague and incomplete answers.

    The action is non-stop and the book is a page-turner; I didn’t want to stop listening to it. And it’s a return to classic Gray Man after the book 3 side trip to Mexico. I do wish that there was more character development, and that the storyline had more meat on it. The action was projected; it was too easy to see what was coming next. I like the character Court Gentry. I’d like to see him interact within a more complex storyline.

    Maybe we’ll get that in book 5. Now that Gentry is hooked in with a powerful foreign intelligence agency he’ll start doing the chasing instead of being the chased, and we’ll find out why the CIA wants him dead!

    I love listening to Jay Snyder read these stories. He can go from Frat Boy Dude to Commando in an eye blink. His narration makes all the difference.

    "My oh my! I love the Gray Man."
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Eye the most enjoyable?

    Mark Greany has out Clanceyed Clancy. Awesome story, continuation of the character and feel of being in the plot with the action. Ready to give up normal life and give it a go living the nomadic life with Courtland Gentry.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As improbable as it all is it is written so well I am sure it is all possible. You feel the story and the location moving with you. Constant motion, pain, empathy for the man who has killed dozens and has no home.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    Courtland Gentry of course.


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

    Just sad it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    Start at the beginning of the series and you will not be sad.

    "High Energy!"

    I read this novel when I needed energy; I could not read it before bedtime. I thought I was getting espionage, and the beginning hooked me, but it was just blood & gore the entire way through.
    I am sure this is someone's cup of tea, but, as for myself, I can only endure so many fights, bullets flying, broken bones and spying drones.

    "Best Tier 1 Assassin novels out there"

    I really love black ops/top assassin stories. I love hearing about the skills they need to possess to do what they do. This one is rather realistic even though the main character is very lucky, he is also so fun to read/listen about. Mark Greaney has done a great job painting the world that the Gray Man must live in. Constantly on guard, never being able to get close to anyone. It makes for some really great stories. One of my top favorite series without a doubt.

    "Best Gray Man yet, Mark!"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Eye the most enjoyable?

    The complex storyline that tied to prior plots. Exceptionally entertaining listen. Mark clearly does his research and I appreciate that.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Character development and a complex storyline that makes you listen and think. You must pay attention, because there are many characters and locations involved.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all Gray Man books and Jay's performance for Dead Eye mirrors the high level of talent of his prior performances.


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

    There's only one Gray Man and he's coming to settle a score.


    Any additional comments?

    As always, I very much look forward to the next Gray Man novel, and the collaborative stories to which Mark Greaney has contributed.

    "Brilliantly Fantastic"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Eye the most enjoyable?

    I have been a long time Gray Man fan. This is the author's best work so far. The non stop action that keeps listener on edge of their seats and keep wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    Jay had done a great job narrating. Hope he continues with future novels.

    "The Most Satisfying Grey Man Yet"

    I rarely give 5 stars in one category let along all 3 but this book is worth the 5 stars. I like books with action and good characters. There is plenty of action, in part due to a flashback to an earlier project (I won’t say which one but readers/listeners of the earlier books will be satisfied) and more insight into the human side of Court. You can’t help but route for Court from page one, admire his cunning, planning and perseverance. And you feel his turmoil and emotions throughout the book. I liked the earlier Grey Man novels but this one was just more satisfying. I can’t wait for the next installment.
