Includes 7 free chapters of HELLBENT, the latest in the international bestselling Orphan X series.
Spoken about only in whispers, the Nowhere Man can only be reached by the truly desperate, he can —He will do anything to save them.
Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man.
Taken from a group home at twelve, Evan was raised and trained as part of the Orphan Program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets—i.e. assassins. Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the Program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man.
But his new life is interrupted when a surprise attack comes from an unlikely angle and Evan is caught unaware. Captured, drugged, and spirited off to a remote location, he finds himself heavily guarded and cut off from everything he knows. His captors think they have him trapped and helpless in a virtual cage but they don’t know who they’re dealing with—or that they’ve trapped themselves inside that cage with one of the deadliest and most resourceful men on earth.
Continuing his electrifying series featuring Evan Smoak, Gregg Hurwitz delivers a blistering, compelling new novel in the series launched with the instant international bestseller, Orphan X.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The second thriller in Gregg Hurwitz’s Orphan X series sends ice-veined antihero Evan Smoak in a fruitful new direction. Once a member of an ultrasecret government program, Smoak is now the Nowhere Man, a freelance guardian angel to the desperate. Hurwitz puts his well-trained superassassin through a series of increasingly bizarre showdowns with a list of villains that includes a modern-day vampire. There are echoes of both Lee Child’s Jack Reacher and the surreal cult TV series The Prisoner in The Nowhere Man, but Smoak’s deadpan cool and devilish ingenuity make him feel like no action hero we’ve ever met before.
Plots and subplots abound in the second of Hurwitz's thrillers featuring Evan Smoak, the ultimate assassin, who now uses his killing ways and bulging bank accounts to benefit mankind while avoiding his former associates in the covert Orphan Program, who want him dead. He's juggling a couple of cases a young woman on her way to international sex slavers and a boy in equally dire straits when he himself falls victim to a world-class kidnapper, winding up trapped in a fortress in a frigid, mountainous, probably foreign country. Reader Brick's relentlessly intense enactment tips Hurwitz's energized, violence-prone style into melodrama, but he also matches the author's feverish pacing, and that's enough to keep the material compelling. A Minotaur hardcover. \n
Almost as good as book one
The Nowhere Man
Loved this book. I found it difficult to put down. Can't wait for the next one.
Best ever, for me
I read a lot of books probably one a week, anything from Gray man to Silvia and Flynn, America assassin, and by far this is the best book I have ever read, I’m not clinic, in fact I’m no one, and I don’t give reviews but, this book deserved it.
Most impressive is the detail the author gives you can feel and see everything. I love the way the offer prepares a story and gives you exactly what you need to see. Guarantee you 100% you will not be disappointed with this author or book. Like I said my first review
