'OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY' LEE CHILD
To some he is Orphan X. Others know him as the Nowhere Man. But to veteran spymaster Jack Johns he will always be a boy named Evan Smoak.
Taken from an orphanage, Evan was raised inside a top secret programme designed to turn him into a deadly weapon. Jack became his instructor, mentor, teacher and guardian. Because for all the dangerous skills he instilled in his young charge, he also cared for Evan like a son. And now Jack needs Evan's help.
The Orphan programme hid dark secrets. Now those with blood on their hands want every trace of it gone. And they will stop at nothing to make sure that Jack and Evan go with it.
With little time remaining, Jack gives Evan his last assignment: to find and protect the programme's last recruit. And to stay alive long enough to uncover the shocking truth ...
'WEAPONS-GRADE THRILLER WRITING FROM A MODERN MASTER' The Guardian
'A RIVAL TO REACHER' The Independent
In bestseller Hurwitz's thrilling third Orphan X novel (after 2017's The Nowhere Man), Evan Smoak, who once worked as an assassin for the Orphan Program, a covert U.S. government agency, and now helps people in trouble from his base in L.A., violates one of the agency's fundamental commandments: never make it personal. Evan's mentor, Jack Johns, who recruited Evan at age 12 to the program, calls Evan's help line. Soon afterward, operatives following the orders of Charles Van Sciver, another Orphan, take Jack prisoner aboard a Blackhawk helicopter. In an exciting action scene, Jack manages to sabotage the helicopter, but pays with his life. Evan decides to honor Jack's last request to take care of a "package," which turns out to be a teenage girl, who is, like Evan, also in Van Sciver's crosshairs. The master killer hoping for redemption and struggling to relate to others emotionally may be a genre clich , but such details as Evan's sleeping on a bed levitated by magnets are sure to please fans of the Roger Moore Bond films. 150,000 announced first printing; author tour.)
