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.

Absolutely I will listen to Dead Eye again. Each of Mark Greaney's books contain so much detail (but not boring detail!) that I want to listen again to make sure I have caught everything. The characters, the action, the plot - everything is worth a second or third listen!
I've seen the Gray Man compared to Jason Bourne and think that is an appropriate comparison as far as the character goes. If you like the Bourne series, there is a great chance you will love this series as well.
Jay Snyder kept me captivated throughout the book. I think his timing is impeccable. He knows when to be deadpan and when to "jazz up" his voice depending on the character and situation. I've not felt that he was over the top at any point in his narration. I will be seeking out more of his work!
I've listened to all four in this series and am absolutely hooked. If you haven't tried them but love spy novels or thrillers, give these a shot. Certainly start from the beginning though!
The story and action was amazing
I think all of the characters were well written.
Great audio. Did not read.
Gentry is a great character. Over coming obstacles from multi spy agencies, and set ups for failure. The Grey Man is true to his mission?
Was able to separate each character during the narration
If possible, I would.
Great series, must read. Look forward to authors Tom Clancy series.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
I was impressed with M Greaney's deep passion for well researched, action packed story. He doesn't over-define, but let's the reader feel like your looking over the gray man's shoulder through the story. I was impressed with his ability to escape being killed. I liked the least of his friend Ruth that was written out.
Yes, from Court's first assignment, to chapter after chapter of being chased.
Yes, I would like to see him get picked up by the Israeli's special intelligence agency.
Much more modern day action, as opposed to Jason Bourne series.
Just finished Deadeye by Mark Greaney last night and all I can say is wow. Another solid book that starts fast and doesn't slow down and we finally get the truth about the Kiev op. In this book Gentry meets what I would call his alter personality or what he could've been if he wasn't as conscientious and was a little bit greedy. Somebody with all the skills of the Gray Man and no qualms about killing regardless of the moral validity of the target. Deadeye is in his head and on his trail as well as Mossad and some contract operators from the USA. Jay Snider does an excellent job with the narration as usual. If you follow Mark on Facebook he has recently been posting some great pictures of his research trips to various locales around the globe and they really help with visualizing the story. Click the link, buy the book.
Absolutely! fast pace on the edge of your seat, wonderful listening.
The plot was good, predictable at times but always had a twist towards the end of each episode.
He does a remarkable job narrating, this is only my 2nd audio book, so unable to compare but I do like what I hear.
To Israel with love.
Discovering audio books is a whole new experience for me as I don't have the time or patience to spend hours reading. This provides me with a way to drop into another world and tune out the current world!
I LOVE this series. Court Gentry is such an interesting character. Conflicted, flawed but with an essential core of courage, honor and justice. He is so much more dimensional than Jack Reacher. Now don't get me wrong, I have read every one of the Reacher novels and love them, but he is a bit of an automaton.
Can't tell you without revealing a spoiler, but I will say the action is edge of your seat suspenseful and constant. Many times I had to sit in my garage and listen because I just couldn't pause the book until I knew how Court got out of THIS one!
perfect combination of writer and narrator
fast-paced action and never a dull moment
another great listen from audible
Jay Snyder does a great job of bringing Court to life. I can almost picture him in my mind as I listen to the story.
Yes. I've been waiting to hear about Kiev and I wasn't disappointed.
His voice is just what I would expect Court's to be like. It keeps me on the edge of my seat.
I love the human part of Court that wants to be able to come home an "unwanted" man.
I've loved this character since the first book. I can't wait for Mark to write the next one. Now that we are missing my favorite Vince Flynn, I hope Court can ease that loss.
Suspense, Action, Intrigue
The Gray Man's brief interaction with a Russian child in the middle of an operation, juxtaposed to Deadeye's cold indifference to an innocent bystander in the very next chapter.
The climactic (and chilly) ending, of course!
Yes, if only I had the time.
I can't wait for the next Gray Man book. This is the one that got me addicted to the series, and I've listened to every one since. Court Gentry is a guy you can root for, and you'll catch yourself trying to imagine ways he can get out of the pickles his finds himself in every other chapter, only to find yourself surprised when he does something you'd probably never expect.
