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.

The audio edition is always better than the print edition when you have a good narrator. And especially when you find the right narrator, and use he/she consistently through the series. The Gray Man novels are no exception--an intense and believable storyline combined with a talented narrator, make for a great listening experience. These novels are on par with the Jack Reacher series for sure. I've listened to them all, and I can't wait for the next one. Thanks Mark Greaney and Jay Snyder!

Gotta love that "Thug Life"! This is so not the kind of book that I would have ever chosen. But I got the first book in this series FREE through an Audible promotion. Even then it took until I had nothing else to listen to before I settled on "The Gray Man". WOW!! Court Gentry is the man! This book, the last in the 4-book series in audio, is as exciting as the first. Court, a rogue ex-CIA Black Ops assassin, is back killing everyone in sight -except children and the innocent, of course! - while dodging a "Shoot On Sight" order by his former employee and bounties subsidized by a dozen foreign countries. But he's staying just one step ahead of them by fashioning bombs from shaving cream and Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup or parachutes from a box of Pampers and TimberLand boot strings. This is a thrilling ride for a woman whose most dangerous wounds comes from getting a paper cut or spilling Liquid Paper on herself.
" In the dark before the light live or die by shades of gray." From the song of the same name. This is my first Gray Man book and I have to admit I am a bit ambivalent about it. The plot it was well thought out so story moved at a good clip to hold the interest. The narrator was very good with pacing his words to stay evenly with the flow of the story. Lately, I have found some narrators who seem to believe the faster they can throw the words at you during a high action scene the better. It's like they are trying to make you 'feel' the action by reading harsh and rapid. I was glad Mr. Snyder did not do this. However, listenting to this book I found myself comparing our good/bad guy to the high octane character of Jason Bourne. It just seem there were many similarities between the two. Both were trained in some sort of brain wash program and both have their own agencies on their trail. I cant say those things really bothered me all that much so perhaps I will go back to the beginning of Gray Man's story and check him out from the get go. Overall, I enjoyed the book, thought it was well written, with a very smooth style, and well presented by this narrator.
No, I don't think so. The lead character is a bit over the top to be beliveable. I am a fan of tough resourceful characters I.e Rapp, Bosch and their awesome abilities. I think the Gray Man was a little bit closer to Batman. However, I decided to stay with it and it unfolde into a good story.
I gave him a three-pretty good job
