'An even more intense and harrowing thriller. The pace that never lets up' Daily Mail
Evan Smoak (aka the Nowhere Man), who used to be an assassin for the Orphan Program, a covert U.S. government agency, now lives in a fortified penthouse overlooking Los Angeles, in bestseller Hurwitz's stellar sequel to 2016's Orphan X. Evan masquerades as an importer of industrial cleaning supplies, but he's actually atoning for his murderous past by saving persons in need of help. He only asks that each rescued person refer him to someone else who needs his services. Despite meticulous efforts to maintain his cover, Evan faces many enemies who wish him grievous harm. One of them is Charles Van Sciver, the most brutal of the Orphans, who's now running the program and is on a mission to hunt down former members of the organization. Evan's efforts to elude Van Sciver and company will keep readers on the edge of their seats, but it's Hurwitz's engaging, sympathetic characters who place this thriller above the pack. 100,000 first printing; author tour.
