Early on, I was afraid the story was going to get overheated, and exceed even my considerable willingness to suspend disbelief, but I was drawn in and was satisfied by the finish.

I was hooked on the Grey man novels right from the second one. I mean I have read On Target first, actually. Then, of course I went back to read the f..Show More »irst one. The figure of the Grey Man is compelling. When I was thinking about him I realized that I like a professional assassin, a serial killer, who makes hits for money. But there is something about him what makes us, readers to stand on his side. It's maybe that he kills only bad guys, which speaks about certain principles he possesses. It's maybe that he is mysterious, always slipping out of the hands of his pursuers. This book brings an interesting plot into play. Dead Eye is almost like the Grey Man: though, well trained, merciless killing machine. But there is a big difference: he doesn't share the same principles. When he lays out his own scheme, he draws the Grey Man into a dubious game. An assassin always is in danger, the Gray Man's life isn't different, half of the governments are after him for one reason or the other. Mostly killing somebody important. But now his troubles are augmented having Dead Eye playing games with him. I liked the dynamics of the story. Dead Eye tried to go trough his airtight plan, but it is not by chance that the Gray Man is considered to be the best assassin. He changed the game, and Dead Eye had to adjust. In this book we learn a few things from the past of the Gray Man, which adds some puzzle pieces to the his picture. I especially enjoyed that the final battle was played out in Belgium. I live in Overijse, where the safe-house was, I go to work on route N4 every day, and I'm familiar with Uccle and Etterbeek. It was fun to see the story to unfold in these places. After the fourth installment, Court Gentry is still one of my favorites, right next to Jack Reacher.
