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 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.
Books are ways to sharpen our minds . . . and souls.
This was an interesting story with many twists and turns. I am ready for the next story!
Could not stop listening -- I would highly recommend.
Thoroughly enjoyed this title. It's predecessor "Ballistic" just didn't feel like a Gray Man plot to me. But this one has redeemed Greney's Gray Man with all the elements of a great espionage thriller: CIA, private security contractors, Mossad, Metsada, rogue agents, cowboy operators, characters on the fence and a strong and believable female lead character...
I often grow frustrated with characters that are constantly on the defensive, running from something, being falsely accused or to whom no one will listen. But Greaney's Gray Man does it with great panache in this installment of the series.
It is fast-paced and moves quickly all over Western Europe. This book has a lot of action from the outset and the characters are really well developed. The Gray Man plays the escape and evasion version of whack-a-mole eluding the various people and groups after him. Dead Eye is a great antagonist. The usual suspects like Denny Carmichael are there to hate and loathe as well. This book leaves me wanting more. Hope "Back Blast" Gray Man 5 lives up to this book's level of quality.
