Reviews

Nonstop action and relentless pacing are matched by deeply philosophical and powerfully emotional undertones. Unlike comparable series that tend to lose steam after several instalments, this series just gets better as it evolves * Publishers Weekly *
Hurwitz gives his seventh Orphan X thriller an epic scope, writing with verve and color . . . A crackerjack thriller that briskly enhances the legend of Orphan X * Kirkus *
The Orphan X series has always been about moral ambiguity and the razor-thin line separating right from wrong, but this novel takes Evan even farther down the dark road than he's been before . . . Evan Smoak is one of thrillerdom's most compelling characters, and Hurwitz keeps revealing new aspects of his complex personality. Another sure-fire hit * Booklist *
Praise for the Orphan X Series * - *
Sheer escapist fantasy . . . Sharp, stylish prose, an immensely entertaining adventure * The Times *
A stellar series, and the stories get better with each instalment. [Evan Smoak is] the man you want in your corner when justice is needed * Daily Mail *
Orphan X blows the doors off most thrillers I've read and catapults the readers on a cat-and-mouse that feels like a missile launch. Read this book. You will thank me later -- David Baldacci * - *
Orphan X is his best yet - a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller -- Lee Child * - *
Another jet-fuelled thriller * Shots Magazine *
Orphan X is most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense -- Jonathan Kellerman * - *
Mind blowing! A perfect mix of Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher -- Lisa Gardner * - *
Orphan X is the most exciting thriller I've read since The Bourne Identity ... A new thriller superstar is born! -- Robert Crais * - *
Orphan X is not good. Orphan X is great. Whatever you like best in a thriller - action, plot, character, suspense - Orphan X has it -- Simon Toyne * - *
A new series character to rival Reacher . . . anyone reading Orphan X won't be surprised that a cadre of peers, from Tess Gerritsen to Lee Child, have lined up to praise it * Independent *
Bestseller Hurwitz melds non-stop action and high-tech gadgetry with an acute character study in this excellent series opener . . . Evan Smoak is an electrifying character * Publishers Weekly *
In terms of plot, characters, suspense and innovation, Orphan X is outstanding . . . I've always thought that one reason for Tom Clancy's success was the endless detail he provided about military hardware, and that the James Bond novels benefited from the loving attention Ian Fleming devoted to the martinis, expensive cars and gorgeous women he so admired. Hurwitz outdoes both writers . . . Orphan X is a smart, stylish, state-of-the-art thriller. It's also the start of a series, one that might give Lee Child's Jack Reacher books a run for their money * Washington Post *
A masterpiece of suspense and thrills . . . Turn off the real world and dive into this amazing start to a new series * Associated Press *
Don't miss this one * Booklist *
