PRE-ORDER THE GRIPPING NEW SUNDAY TIMES TOP 5 BESTSELLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUT OF THE DARK AND ORPHAN X
Evan Smoak - former government assassin, 'Orphan X', turned white knight of last resort - is planning on hanging up his gun.
Then he gets one last call.
Max Merriweather has lost his wife, home and career. Now it looks like he's going to lose his life. A murdered cousin has left him a package and a team of assassins on his trail . . .
Nothing Evan can't handle.
If it weren't for the fact he's carrying a brutal concussion that's made him vulnerable. Or that the simple job of keeping Max safe quickly escalated into a mission unlike anything he's ever encountered.
But as Evan's problems mount just one thing is clear: he is now in the most dangerous position of his life . . .
'A stellar series, the stories get better with each instalment. Throwing the main character literally into the fire showcases how truly heroic Evan Smoak is. He's the man you want in your corner when justice is needed' DAILY MAIL

In bestseller Hurwitz's adrenaline-charged fifth Orphan X novel (after 2019's Out of the Dark), forensic accountant Grant Merriweather leaves his cousin Max Merriweather an envelope to be delivered to an L.A. Times reporter in the event of his murder. But when Grant and the reporter are both killed, Max turns to Evan Smoak, the Nowhere Man, for help. The envelope contains a flash drive with spreadsheets that Evan and his hacker prot g , Josephine Morales, are able to determine contain a money laundering scheme that ranges through L.A.'s criminal underworld. Early on, Evan is surprised by a gunman, and, while Evan survives, he suffers a concussion that hinders his combat abilities, but not so much that he hesitates to rescue Max from a police station or get himself jailed in order to get to a kingpin behind bars. Meanwhile, Hurwitz continues to explore Evan's nascent relationship with assistant district attorney Mia Hall, adding some complexity. By layering his nonstop action with character development, Hurwitz has created a terrific tale. 150,000-copy announced first printing; author tour.
