"Orphan X is the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time. Hang onto your seat because Gregg Hurwitz will take you on a dizzying ride you'll not soon forget!" —Tess Gerritsen
The Nowhere Man is a legendary figure spoken about only in whispers. It's said that when he's reached by the truly desperate and deserving, the Nowhere Man can and will do anything to protect and save them.
But he's no legend.
Evan Smoak is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to help those with nowhere else to turn. He's also a man with a dangerous past. Chosen as a child, he was raised and trained as part of the off-the-books black box Orphan program, designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence assets—i.e. assassins. He was Orphan X. Evan broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear.
Now, however, someone is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training. Someone who knows Orphan X. Someone who is getting closer and closer. And will exploit Evan's weakness—his work as The Nowhere Man—to find him and eliminate him. Grabbing the listener from the beginning, Orphan X is a masterful thriller, the first in Gregg Hurwitz's electrifying new series featuring Evan Smoak.

An Amazon Best Book of January 2016: Galvanizing and suspenseful, Orphan X performs a deft high-wire act between the current-day deeds of former black-ops assassin Evan Smoak and fascinating flashbacks to the training Evan received as a young teen in the government’s secret Orphan Program. Although Evan dove off the government’s radar years ago, he still practices the tradecraft that made him a top graduate of the Orphan Program--maintaining multiple safe houses, rerouting his electronic signals around the globe, avoiding emotional entanglements, and living his life by the Commandments his mentor/trainer Jack instilled in him to keep him alive. Evan also still practices his wetwork skills during rare vigilante acts to help those who are mercilessly preyed upon. When Evan is contacted by a woman in trouble with the Vegas mob, his attempts to help her literally put him in the line of fire. But are the bad guys after her--or is Evan the true target? As the plot goes deliciously serpentine, author Gregg Hurwitz peels back the layers of Evan’s psyche, developing a character with the potential to be the next Jason Bourne or Jack Reacher. An end-of-the-book shocker whets the appetite for Evan’s next adventure even at it adds a satisfying final note. —Adrian LiangAbout the Author:
