Description 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 no legend. 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 part of the off-the-books black box Orphan program, designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence assets---i.e. assassins. He was Orphan X. Evan broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear. Now, however, someone is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training. Someone who knows Orphan X. Someone who is getting closer and closer. And will exploit Evan's weakness---his work as The Nowhere Man---to find him and eliminate him. Grabbing the reader from the very first page, Orphan X is a masterful thriller, the first in Gregg Hurwitz's electrifying new series featuring Evan Smoak.

Orphan Xby: martijn from den haag 02-02-2017 Fast-paced action thriller that reads like a Hollywood action movie.
I really like these type of thrillers. You want to finish it without stopping.
Evan Smoak(!)is an off-the-radar ex-Special Ops guy, who now helps those in need.
After his latest venture, his carefully crafted and contained world is showing cracks.
Is someone on his tail?
Highly enjoyable action for those that like Terry Hayes, Patrick Lee and a dash of Lee Child. This review refers to the Paperback edition
