Publisher Description

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

The first in the international bestselling 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.”

Ephemera Danica ,

Excellent read

Well written, interesting character and an almost plausible although well tried plot. Of its genre it is definitely up there and if you are into the lone wolf characters, creators of mayhem, you will enjoy this.

Best written book in genre‼️

I sent a message via Instagram to the author, commenting that this book is the best written book I’ve ever read in this genre. I too am an author of thriller novels, and his writing humbled me. I’m sad it took me so long to find Orphan X!

Chalupaman ,

Couldn’t get through the first few pages.

Too many product placements and adverbs. Too many details that don’t matter to the story. Who cares what the phone is call or that it has gorilla glass.
