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.

    "Too many holes spoil the plot"

    I've been going through the Gray man series one after another, and this is the first one I'm kind of disappointed in. There are glaring plot holes and unfortunately they repeat again and again. Characters behave in unbelievable and incredulous ways even when you consider that characters' set up. I won't go into the specifics of the plot holes, but they amounted to the biggest weakness of this book.

    I'll still read the next books. I really like the main character. Unfortunately, he was 'missing' in most of this book. I have to give give credit to the author that he tried to change the formula. But, for better or worse, Gentry is an action hero. In this book the author gives him much less action, and the book suffers because of it. There is an excellent assassination scene in the beginning. But that scene is tangential to the main plot. In the main plot, you hear multiple times from many characters how good Gentry is, but unfortunately you don't see it for yourself. In most of the book, he just walks all around and looks over his shoulder.

    I will still keep consuming this series. Not every book in any author's series is good. But I sure hope it improves.

    "Good story but a little over the top"

    I would put this book at a solid 4 star rating. The plot was interesting and the characters were well-established. Many of the scenarios were so far fetch that it made it unbelievable. While there were portions of the story that were hard to turn off due to your desire to hear what happens next, there were few.

    All in all I enjoyed hearing the story. I would have no problem recommending this to others.

    "Won't stop"

    I've raced through the Gray Man series up to Dead Eye and am about to begin Back Blast I'm as fired up for this as I was the first audiobook.
    The series is like Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp on growth hormones and amphetamines!! The only downside is that I've almost read them all.
    Maybe best because the adrenaline surge while enmeshed in Cort's life is intense.
    Great series Mark

    Story
    "Much Better than the Original!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The original Gray Man book had a lot of potential, but was marred by stereotypical characters, some ingrained homophobia, a too over the top main character, and an announcer-like read.

    Dead Eye fixes these shortcomings and really brings out the potential of the Gray Man character in an action-adventure thriller that grabs the reader and holds on tight.

    The narrator seems to have hit a much better tone in this outing. His declarative style is dialed back and his characterizations are excellent. He does have a bit of a Rod Serling sound and cadence, but it only distracted a few times as I felt like I was listening to a Twilight Zone episode. Oddly, there were several short audio inserts that sounded like they were recorded at a different time, possibly in a closet, with wildly different sound and volume.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to pick one...

    The Gray Man was much more believable this time around, but his psychotic protagonist was an equal match in the narrative. But then there's the pivotal Israeli operative too...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were several memorable scenes, but I think I was most entertained by the chase through the bus and train station. Not wanting to give anything away.
