IF YOU'VE READ ORPHAN X YOU'LL BE DYING TO READ THIS He was once called Orphan X. As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from a children's home, raised and trained as part of a secret government initiative buried so deep that virtually no one knows it exists. But he broke with the programme, choosing instead to vanish off grid and use his formidable skill set to help those unable to protect themselves. One day, though, Evan's luck ran out ...Ambushed, drugged, and spirited away, Evan wakes up in a locked room with no idea where he is or who has captured him. As he tries to piece together what's happened, testing his gilded prison and its highly trained guards for weaknesses, he receives a desperate call for help. With time running out, he will need to out-think, out-manoeuvre, and out-fight an opponent the likes of whom he's never encountered to have any chance of escape. He's got to save himself to protect those whose lives depend on him. Or die trying ...The Nowhere Man delivers another masterclass in hi-octane thriller writing. It doesn't get better than this.

Reviews

That rare thing: a sequel that rivals the original. The No. 1 Bestselling The Nowhere Man is a thrilling, pulse-pounding ride for readers and the hero of Orphan X... 'An even more intense and harrowing thriller. The pace that never lets up' Daily Mail He was once called Orphan X. from the publisher's description An even more intense and harrowing thriller. The pace never lets up Daily Mail That rare thing, a sequel which is better than the original, The Nowhere Man is a thrilling, pulse-pounding ride for readers and the hero of Orphan X ... from the publisher's description 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 the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time! -- Tess Gerritsen Memorable as hell -- James Patterson Orphan X is his best yet - a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller -- Lee Child 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 most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense -- Jonathan Kellerman 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 The page-turner of the season is Orphan X ... Wonderful The Times A masterpiece of suspense and thrills ... Turn off the real world and dive into this amazing start to a new series Daily Mail 'There is a pristine classicism to Gregg Hurwitz's Orphan X, which borrows from Robert Ludlum and superhero lore to bring us Evan Smoak, adopted as a child by a shadowy figure called Jack and trained to be an assassin as part of a secret US government scheme. When the Orphan programme (as it is known) is disbanded, Evan moves to California and devotes himself to good works - taking out a slum-landlord paedophile cop, for example, after his victim calls Evan's special number. However, his meticulously compartmentalised life makes him vulnerable ... Orphan X is tight and tense in all the right places. But it wouldn't work half as well if we didn't feel Evan's pain and share his panic as the worst-case scenario unfolds: another former Orphan, with a less noble agenda, seems to be hunting him. Orphan X is weapons-grade thriller-writing from a modern master Guardian Pure nail-biting stay-up-all-night suspense -- Harlan Coben 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 Mind blowing! A perfect mix of Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher -- Lisa Gardner Bond, Frodo, Paddington Bear - some of literature's greatest heroes have been orphans. Add Orphan X's Evan Smoak to the list Shortlist 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 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 A masterpiece of suspense and thrills ... Turn off the real world and dive into this amazing start to a new series Associated Press Strikes like a fully loaded clip on an automatic rifle: taut, safety off, and lethal ... I can assure you, James Bond sits in admiration of this electrifying novel... In a plot that simply winds around like a clock, The Nowhere Man binds the reader to every page. Great job, Hurwitz thereviewbroads.com The Nowhere Man is part John Wick, part Nikita, part the Equalizer, and unless you're the one who called that encrypted phone number...you do not want to see Evan coming. This novel is anything but an ordinary thriller criminalelement.com
