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.

    "Edge of your seat action packed."
    What did you love best about Dead Eye?

    That the Gray Man has an equal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The use of new technology incorporated into the story. If this technology really exists, it's kind of scary.


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

    Court Gentry for sure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it actually took me 3 days.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book in this series.

    Story
    "I am in love with the Gray Man!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh most definitely! I love everything the story, the character, the narrator. My only disappointment s that this seems to be the last book in the series so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye?

    The entire book was memorable I am hard pressed to recall a single memorable moment. I guess I was really glad that the Israelis recognized his efforts and wanted to help him and I was happy that he finally returned to the USA and it seems his next operation would be to take out the hated Carmichael.


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a great job narrating Gentry! I think he makes Gentry more Human, than Super-human.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Hell Yes!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly, highly recommend listening/reading to the entire Court Gentry series. I absolutely cannot wait for the next Court Gentry adventure. Did I mention that I have a huge crush on Court Gentry.

    Story
    "Lingusitic inaccuracies and a bad reader."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A narrator who can pronounce the foreign words (and some English ones) correctly, or at least close to correct. And an author who checks basic facts. He claimed a major character could understand the jist of a Farsi conversation because he spoke Arabic, which is similar. Wrong. Farsi (the language of Iran and Afghanistan, i.e. Persian) is Indoeuropean, like Sanskrit, German, Greek, and Latin. Arabic is in a completely different language family and is a Semitic language like Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I thought it drug on a bit, milking the suspense.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jay Snyder’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The first book by this author I listened to was OK. He's a mediocre writer with shallow, stock characters, but offers decent suspense. This one started to feel repetitive and did not sustain my interest as much as the first one.

    Story
    "A Better Twist on "Get Him Before He Gets You""

    The "Gray Man" is or will soon become a legendary character. A smart and ruthless killer, he is vulnerable and human. He is a reluctant freelancer with a "code" and a desire to return to legitimacy but someone at the CIA desperately wants him dead. His personal angst and conflicts are deftly written into the story - not preachy or overdone - just woven in to build a complex character. A similarly trained and skilled operative is searching for the Gray Man as part of a CIA contracted kill team. The story develops in a well constructed and complicated way to a mano e mano between the two killers.The intensity, twists and action are enormously well crafted until the final showdown which, in my opinion, was very contrived and went on for much too long. This is a fast paced thriller that will be difficult to turn off. Like me, I'm sure you will be eager to move on to the next Gray man novel.

    All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!

    "Wow, how could a spy novel be so tedious?"

    I guess I have to agree with the other reviews I saw. This definitely didn't live up to the potential of the first book. So disappointing.
