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.

That the Gray Man has an equal.
The use of new technology incorporated into the story. If this technology really exists, it's kind of scary.
Court Gentry for sure.
Yes, but it actually took me 3 days.
Can't wait for the next book in this series.
By being not so predictable
The reader was good. He might be the only thing that will keep me until the end of the book
The story was/is too predictable.
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.
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.
He does a great job narrating Gentry! I think he makes Gentry more Human, than Super-human.
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.
Just a guy looking to fill the time gaps with fresh perspectives. Looking for insights that prompt glimpses of difference.
No life is too short to do it again
Yes, very visually engaging and fast moving
No I like a slow burn
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.
I thought it drug on a bit, milking the suspense.
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.
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!
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.
