Publisher's Summary

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.

Great Continuation of a Great Series

This has been a really enjoyable series. I had not heard of the Gray man novels before, but tried one when they had the the first book for free. I listened to that one, and then downloaded the remaining three books. I found this last book the best so far. The series is well written like the Jack Reacher series, however, I find the character actions in the Gray Man series easier to believe and more realistic. The narrator also does a great job, and I like that it is the same one for all the books so far. Highly recommended.

I can't do it. I just can't do it.

I tried and tried. I don't know what kind of koolaid everyone is drinking. I'd like to give Mark Greaney and the Gray Man a big hug. We have a super sensitive assassin + A super sensitive Mossad agent. How many times in one book can you mention that the Gray man is the most infamous, most deadliest, and the most heard of, and recognizable assassins in the world? Is this guy going to be on the cover of People magazine next. Top 10 available assassins? My mom could find this guy with as many other people who did. I was disappointed with the first Gray man Novel & thought I would never try another one. The 1st book was like a Monty Python movie. The only thing still left on the Gray man was his head & he still won the fight. I saw so many reviews with 5 stars - I had to give this book a shot. I was sure I would at least find this one enjoyable. After 1 full part & half of the second - I deleted it. I couldn't take it anymore. The Enemy and The Game by Tom Wood will have you drooling if you like this stuff. Try Consent to kill by Vince Flynn and you will have to take a cold shower if stuff like this gets people going. What's the saying? If not liking this book is wrong - I don't want to be right.

THE GRAY MAN STRIKES AGAIN!!!

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.

BEST Gray Man BOOK so far

Thoroughly enjoyed this title. It's predecessor "Ballistic" just didn't feel like a Gray Man plot to me. But this one has redeemed Greney's Gray Man with all the elements of a great espionage thriller: CIA, private security contractors, Mossad, Metsada, rogue agents, cowboy operators, characters on the fence and a strong and believable female lead character...

I often grow frustrated with characters that are constantly on the defensive, running from something, being falsely accused or to whom no one will listen. But Greaney's Gray Man does it with great panache in this installment of the series.

It is fast-paced and moves quickly all over Western Europe. This book has a lot of action from the outset and the characters are really well developed. The Gray Man plays the escape and evasion version of whack-a-mole eluding the various people and groups after him. Dead Eye is a great antagonist. The usual suspects like Denny Carmichael are there to hate and loathe as well. This book leaves me wanting more. Hope "Back Blast" Gray Man 5 lives up to this book's level of quality.

Freaking AWESOME!

Awesome, awesome, awesome - the GRAY MAN series gives the BOURNE series a run for its money and if the producers in Hollywood haven’t picked up on what would be a fantastic series set to the big screen than they are simply not paying attention!

In Book 4 of The Gray Man series, ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry is still trying to stay out of light and into the shadows. With so many entities out to kill him including the US Government, Court is having more and more difficulty remaining in the shadows. On his last assignment of taking revenge on a former employer who betrayed him, a killer very much like Court has now set his sights on him.

Russell Whitlock, code-named Dead Eye, is a graduate of the same secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and controlled Court. However, Dead Eye is going rogue in order to frame and terminate his ultimate target - Court Gentry and earn the distinction of being the one man who could take Court down.

In another of Greaney’s fabulous additions to his Gray Man series, I can say one might need oxygen handy as the suspense is so tense I find myself holding my breath through this authors amazing detailed descriptions of the blow-by-blow action. Greaney’s writing is astounding bringing you right along with the Gray Man’s adventures and heart-stopping suspense which he masterfully generates.

Bottom line: Mark Greaney’s Gray Man books are top notch and DEAD EYE is just one more example of the best you may find in CIA black OPs thrillers! AWESOME!

I am a Court Gentry Addict. I need # 5!

Where does Dead Eye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Gray Man books are fantastic audiobooks. Mr Snyder infuses every voice with its own accent, tenor and speed. Each time a character speaks I instantly knew who was speaking. And since the plots of the gray man books are always a rollicking, high speed chase from beginning to end. The book takes us through many countries and deals with many, many characters who may be friendly but are often not. I enjoy many types of fiction and find ranking books to be nearly impossible. BUT, here we are talking about how the book is narrated -- and this is one of the best.<br/><br/>BOX & SNYDER are a perfect matchup.

Love not knowing what's going to happen next.

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

No spoilers here.

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

Jay Snyder IS the Gray Man.

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

Very nearly unputdownable.

Mark Greaney can't write them fast enough for me.

Enjoyable

Would you listen to Dead Eye again? Why?

maybe

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

One of Mark Greaney's earlier ones

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

Very good at different characters

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Disappointment. I did not like that once again Court does not find out why he is being hunted. And once again, he seems to not be able to see a couple of steps ahead. And once again he is running.

Any additional comments?

I have decided I wont be reading another of these books as I don't want to read another book that has the same type of storyline that I have already read 4 of. I feel it will just be another book that just keeps the same story going from earlier.
