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.

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.

Fits well into the series

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 first 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.
