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 my first Gray man book and I did enjoy it. Near the end some of the events seemed a bit off. Not just the superhuman abilities the characters possess which is some of the appeal of this kind of book, but the plot itself was unbelievable. There were a few things that seemed out of character and some other things that obviously would have happened in real life but didn't.
Tell us about yourself! I love to read or listen( audio), nothing abridged ,I want every word the author penned that is what I want.
I love the grey man he really became more human to me in this last book . I'm glad he survived and hopefully we will find out why there was a kill sanction put out on him. I truly hope this is not the end. More please.
The story is good and well written. There are some logical inconsistencies. There is also a bit of sexism where the Mosad team leader assumes that a female operative is overly traumatized by some deaths and her judgement is clouded.
If you like fast paced, non stop action plots in which the good guy always wins you'll like this book. The narration at times was too much to take. You'd think that when reading a story set in Europe the narrator might take a few minutes to learn how to pronounce some basic place names, but the narrator of this book has yet to meet a foreign word he can't butcher.
From the publisher’s summary: “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.” While this book stands very well on it’s own, I wish I had started this series from the first book. I will be looking for the others now, in order. Excellent, rough ride. 5 stars.
Chapter after chapter of silly decisions and off the wall plot. The Gray Man is more similar to Leon of The Professional movie than Jason Bourne.
