    Story
    "Impressed with this author!"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Dead Eye to and why?

    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.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Holding COURT"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Eye to be better than the print version?

    Great audio. Did not read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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?


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Was able to separate each character during the narration


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

    If possible, I would.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Story
    "Very Intriging, thrilling read."
    What did you like best about Dead Eye? What did you like least?

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, from Court's first assignment, to chapter after chapter of being chased.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jay Snyder?

    Yes.


    Do you think Dead Eye needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would like to see him get picked up by the Israeli's special intelligence agency.


    Any additional comments?

    Much more modern day action, as opposed to Jason Bourne series.

    Story
    "Another home run by Mark Greaney"

    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.

    Story
    "Edge of seat thriller"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    Absolutely! fast pace on the edge of your seat, wonderful listening.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was good, predictable at times but always had a twist towards the end of each episode.


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

    He does a remarkable job narrating, this is only my 2nd audio book, so unable to compare but I do like what I hear.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    To Israel with love.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    Story
    "I just wish Mark Greaney could write faster"
    Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

    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.


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

    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!

    Story
    "I can't wait for the next Gray Man book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Eye the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. I've been waiting to hear about Kiev and I wasn't disappointed.


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    His voice is just what I would expect Court's to be like. It keeps me on the edge of my seat.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love the human part of Court that wants to be able to come home an "unwanted" man.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Addictive"
    If you could sum up Dead Eye in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense, Action, Intrigue


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

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The climactic (and chilly) ending, of course!


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

    Yes, if only I had the time.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
