My mistake for not paying attention, I thought this was the first book in a series... it was the forth. On it's own it stood well, and I actually thought the gaps were a clever way of getting the reader to fill in the pieces and thus engage more fully. Well it worked, but the gaps were probably the other three books!
Very well narrated and produces and I may get book five, but I'm a bit OCD that way, I don't like reading out of sequence. If this had been book one, then I'm sure I would go to the next installment - but I can't quite bring myself to do 4,1,2 3, 5, 6.

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.

Fast Paced and Action Packed
How do you stay alive when your enemy has the same lethal skills as you do? Mark Greaney has developed a complex story populated with equally complex characters The pace is rapid with so many unexpected plot twists the reader is constantly re-evaluating who, if anyone, is a good guy. While reading this book, I was unaware that it is the fourth book in the series. It is a gripping page turner.It can be read as a stand alone story, but I will, now read the preceding novels to find out what else the Gray Man has had to endure to ensure his survival.
