Description

“Brilliantly conceived and plotted … Read this book. You’ll thank me later.” -- David Baldacci

Includes 7 free chapters of HELLBENT, the latest in the international bestselling Orphan X series.

Who is Orphan X?

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 not merely a legend.

“Excellent…A smart, stylish, state-of-the-art thriller…might give Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books a run for their money.”—The Washington Post

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 an Orphan, an off-the-books black box program designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence asset: An assassin. Evan was Orphan X—until he broke with the program and used everything he learned to disappear. But now someone is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training who will exploit Evan’s secret new identity as the Nowhere Man to eliminate him.

“Hurwitz melds nonstop action and high-tech gadgetry…in this excellent series opener.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 09, 2015 – Bestseller Hurwitz (Don't Look Back) melds nonstop action and high-tech gadgetry with an acute character study in this excellent series opener. Evan Smoak, who was trained to be an assassin under the government's secret Orphan Program, is now a rogue operator known as the Nowhere Man with a mission to help those in need. As payment, each of his clients refers him to another innocent person in trouble. But Evan becomes the hunted when he tries to help Katrin White, whose father will be killed unless she pays gambling debts. A sense of authenticity permeates the story, no matter how outlandish the tech toys or over-the-top the action. Evan is an electrifying character who chooses daily to do good. Run-ins with his L.A. condo board add a bit of levity while a growing relationship with neighbor Mia Hall and her eight-year-old son, Peter, reinforce that a normal life is just out of Evan's reach. Movie rights were sold to Warner Bros. 100,000 first printing.

Orphan X

I was lucky to win a copy of this book on goodreads. It is one of the best books I have ever read. The subject matter was great. You won't be disappointed!

Great book!

Haven't turned pages this fast in a long while. If you like action-packed thrillers, you won't want to miss this one.

Best read of the New Year.

I'm a devoted mystery fan. This book was amazing--fast paced, surprising, creative--unique and wonderful. I pray this becomes a series. It should be on the number 1 best seller list. A must read. Dr Horn
