5.0 out of 5 stars A very good one 6 Jan 2014
By Pius
Format:Paperback
The Dead Eye by Mark Greaney is a well written book with great characters and an amazing plot. I like adrenaline driven stories,and this is one piece that kept me going all the way to the end. The great thing about this story, like Triple Agent Double Cross, is the fact that it keeps spinning the reader with surprises while the story line stays focused, making it a page-turner that is sophisticated but not complicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep watching the name 12 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mark Greaney is a great writer already and I am sure he will become even better in the years to come. Up there with Tom Clancy himself, in his own right rather than co-author.
I read the first two Grey Man novels after reading Command Authority with last Ryan Junior book. I bought them for my Kindle as I am running out of space to store purchased hard copies any more. Having finished them I looked to see if there were any more only to find they were not yet available in Kindle format. Not wishing to wait till the publisher had done their deals I plunged in and bought Ballistic and Dead Eye. Worth every penny. A great read from start to finish and a last page that has you turning the blank pages screaming " What happens next??"
If anyone knows when the next one is coming out please share..

By Leigh

Court gentry is back in an excellent new book. I couldn't wait for it to be on kindle so bought it and it was well worth it. Mark Greaney writing just gets better and better. Court is a great complex character and this twists and turns at full speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good indeed 10 April 2014
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After three previous Grey Man thrillers and two under Tom Clancy’s name, Mark Greaney now lands this book full of experience and confidence.

This really is very good indeed and did remind me of the Bourne books (as written by Ludlum), Mark Greaney has added complexity to the pace of his previous books and the result is an intelligent and action packed thriller.

Our ‘hero’ Court Gentry manages to clear one of the enemies off his back, but is still on the run and being hunted by the US in the form of an external agency Treadwell. His is offered assistance by a fellow assassin who has his own agenda for The Grey Man and once again he is caught in the middle without knowing who to trust. New identification technology means he has fewer places to hide and those on his tail are getting closer and closer.

Blistering action, tradecraft, conspiracies and double-crosses merge into a real page turner. The author has a habit (also displayed in his Clancy novels) of re-introducing his characters at the start of chapters: “Thirty three year old Mossad targeting officer Laureen Tattersal stepped through…” kind of thing. It becomes very irritating very quickly and I hope he loses the habit quickly but that is the only minor irritation in an otherwise excellent and highly recommended book.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Gray Man" at the very top of his game 3 Dec 2013
By Nick Ciubotariu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked up "The Gray Man" 3 years ago on a whim. I read the whole thing in one day without being able to put it down. I consider Court Gentry the perfect character of this genre, a more realistic and much faster-paced version of Jason Bourne, and a younger, somewhat more menacing, and in some ways, more cerebral version of Gabriel Allon. Gentry is everything you would expect from the world's foremost assassin - highly trained, with a heart of a lion and the ability to survive in just about any environment and under any conditions. Court Gentry is no James Bond, but the reader is left with the unmistakable impression that Gentry could waste Bond and ten others like him before they'd even have the chance to unbutton their fancy suits and order a cocktail.

In Dead Eye (the 4th installment of "The Gray Man" series), Court Gentry is on the run, and the CIA, the Russian mob, and just about every law enforcement agency on the planet wants him dead. The CIA engages a private corporation, Townsend Government Services, to send hunter-killer teams to take out the Gray Man once and for all. Russell Whitlock, code-name Dead Eye is part of one of the teams sent out to terminate Gentry. But suddenly, Dead Eye saves gentry from almost certain death, in a show of trust. Is he a friend or foe? Is there a bigger game at play, with higher stakes and geopolitical implications? This is only the beginning of a great story, with head-snapping twists and surprises right up to the very end.

After reading the first 3 books, and coming off the adrenaline high provided by "Ballistic", I knew the next book would have to be spectacular. It absolutely is. Mark Greaney delivers in a big way with "Dead Eye". The intensity of the action and the pace hits hard and fast from the beginning, and continues throughout the book. The first seven chapters by themselves are enough to replace a pot of coffee and several Red Bullls :). Do not plan to read this book at night. I know a lot of reviews start this way - this particular one should be heeded wisely. The action does not stop, it just accelerates at full throttle and hits you right in the chest like a smoldering bullet with a potent mix of fury and adrenaline until the final page.

One of my favorite things about "Dead Eye" was the continued introduction of new characters. Most authors recycle heavily, but this is not the case with "The Gray Man" series. Indeed, friends and relatives have commented on how easy it is to read the books out of order, due to the fact that the author has managed to create a phenomenal and very consistent main character, with an ever expanding supporting cast of friends and enemies. In Dead Eye, for instance, we are introduced to a new hunter-killer squad contracted by the CIA to terminate Court, as well as the Mossad, led by a determined agent who won't be deterred by the CIA's agenda. This is really the magic of the Gray Man series - there is very little recycled material, and every book stands on it's own.

With Dead Eye, the character, the author hit an absolute bulls-eye. A mirror image of Gentry, in many ways, Russell Whitlock takes the action right to Court Gentry, along with some old foes (or maybe friends?), as well as some new ones. You want to hate him very quickly, and you do, but he doesn't keep you from truly enjoying the book, rather, he adds to the flavor as one of the main antagonists. Strangely enough, as I finished the book, my feelings regarding Russell Whitlock (Dead Eye) change a bit, and I was left in a strange state of melancholic suspense about the character.

I have read enough books to be able to gauge when authors really put "research muscle" behind their books, and when they just kind of dial it in. Something I truly enjoy about Mark Greaney's books is their level of authenticity. Whether it is weapons, tactics, locale, lingo, the author goes to painstaking lengths to ensure the readers get as close to the "real" action as possible. Indeed, what really attracted me to "The Gray Man" series was the lean, direct and razor-sharp writing style of the author - there is no unnecessary "fluff" in his prose: every word has a purpose, nothing is ever wasted. High speed, low drag - just like Court Gentry himself.

The only bad part about this book is the fact that it ended. If I could give it a rating higher than 5 stars, I would. Flat-out my favorite book of the year, and now one of my top 5 all-time.

5.0 out of 5 stars And so lives the Gray Man 3 Dec 2013
By Smooth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story keeps going and gets better with every installment..which is not that common. Most of the time a new development in a series by many writers these days gets dull or sidetracked or formulaic and predictable. It's the opposite with the Gray Man.I think Mark worked out Court's entire plot first then split it into four books which is why it only gets better.
In any event, however the plot had been structured, the Gray Man series is one of just very few masterfully crafted reads today.
Keep them coming, Mark!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gray Man and Israel's Mossad? You bet your life! 3 Dec 2013
By J. Lesley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Once again a Mark Greaney novel kept my attention glued to the pages. It has been a long time since the last Court Gentry book, but this made up for all that time I spent waiting. I would really like to know if the surveillance techniques used in this novel are real or inventions by the author because they were disquieting and yet fascinating at the same time. According to things I'm reading and hearing in news stories it's possible some of us have probably already come under this kind of scrutiny in completely innocent situations. In this novel real time, eye-in-the-sky, low-level spying results in having Court's life on the line because of the target on his back. A private, off the books agency used by the CIA has committed their resources to finding Court and eliminating him. How better to do that than to keep a watch on a target they know Court will try to take out? Working for this private agency is someone who has the same set of skills as Court and that person is guiding the agents from Townsend Government Services with unerring accuracy. It's almost as if he's inside Gentry's mind. But the real target takes a while to be revealed and it is in the best interests of intelligence agencies of many nations to become involved in trying to prevent the assassination of a political leader. Dead Eye says he and Gentry are completely alike and they should team up and work together. Then the twists in the plot begin.

Court Gentry is one of my favorite fictional characters and I was very glad to see him take on even more humanizing characteristics in this novel. I almost felt that I needed to pat him on the back and tell him everything would be okay, except it wasn't really going to be okay. When all is said and done Court is a loner, but in this novel he has to work with other operatives including those from Israel's Mossad. This story is action packed from start to finish and I continued to find myself off balance when trying to figure out the character of Dead Eye. Greaney did a really good job of revealing that character's thoughts and motives over time to keep the suspense going. So there is suspense, and action scenes that had my heart pounding, and unusual gadgetry, and impressive surveillance techniques, and the mindset of people who live their lives on an edge of danger I only want to read about. Do these kinds of things happen in real life? Well, I don't know, but it certainly makes for an exciting reading experience. Now I'm left to hope that there won't be such a long gap between this and the next novel in this fascinating series. I'm pretty stingy with my 5 star ratings for novels, but this one earned that designation from me. Wow, what a ride!

I received an advance copy of this novel for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Total Thrill Ride from Beginning to Breathless End! 7 Dec 2013
By HUGH D COBB JR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mark Greaney is the best young thriller writer out there today. His stories flow and move like an accelerating train - once you're on board you don't want to get off until the end which usually leaves you breathless and wanting more of this most compelling character, the Gray Man.

Dead Eye continues the story of Court Gentry, an operative who is lethal in every way but who struggles with his own humanity in a job that can quickly bury those traits. Dead Eye is finely drawn and compelling. It does not rely on conventions or gimmicks. The writing surprises yet is fresh and truthful. It is well written, well-researched and always holds the reader's interest.
Language is frank, honest and true to the tier one operators I have met. Weapons are authentic and perform as they do in life. Technology is treated the same way. The book is fresh as today with a timeless central figure. Mark Greaney is a super talent . I couldn't put this one down.

Mark Greaney just keeps getting better. After reading Dead Eye I feel like I need to go back and lower my ratings for every other book I have read this year. Bravo, Mr. Greaney!
