The astounding fourth novel from Gregg Hurwitz featuring Evan Smoak - Orphan X aka The Nowhere Man.

The President
For President Jonathan Bennett, reaching the White House was the realization of a lifetime's ambition. He's leader of the free world and the most powerful man on earth. But public support for his administration is wearing thin. And if the terrible truth about his rise to the top was exposed it would bury him. He will not let that happen.

The Assassin
As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from his foster home and inducted into a top secret Cold War programme. Code-named Orphan X, he was trained to become a lethal weapon, then dispatched around the world to do whatever was required to keep his country safe. When Evan discovered the mission was rotten to the core, he got out using his skills to hide in plain sight while helping those who can't help themselves

The Reckoning
But Evan knows about the President's dark past. And that's dangerous knowledge. To save himself and his country, Evan must ask himself one simple question: how do you kill the most well-protected man on earth? And, when he knows you're coming for him, how do you stay alive long enough to try? One thing is certain: a desperate call for help from another unfortunate in urgent need of Evan's protection isn't going to make it any easier . . .

Breathtakingly bold, brilliantly accomplished and blisteringly fast-paced, Out of the Dark is The Day of the Jackal for the twenty-first century.

Industry Reviews
Even more compelling than its predecessors. Hurwitz uses every ounce of his exceptional skill to describe the elaborate plans that exist to protect the most powerful man in the world and how they might be circumvented. Gripping, powerful and only too believable. Don't miss it. * Daily Mail *
Out of the Dark takes the reader on a journey that covers a wide range of emotions from potential love to outright terror. The relentless action and detailed mission planning make the tale both clever and smart. It's only the end of January, but this novel will be remembered as one of the best thrillers of the year * Associated Press *
Out of the Dark is the best thing Gregg Hurwitz has ever written and the kind of game-changing thriller that'll have people talking about it long after turning the final page. * The Real Book Spy *
The perfect thriller * Robert Crais, bestselling author of Cole & Pike series *
A superbly created page-turning action blast * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *
The fourth in a series that has put Hurwitz firmly on the thriller writers' map * Mail on Sunday *
Praise for Orphan X: * - *
Orphan X blows the doors off most thrillers I've read and catapults the readers on a cat-and-mouse that feels like a missile launch. Read this book. You will thank me later -- David Baldacci
Orphan X is his best yet - a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller -- Lee Child
Orphan X is the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time! -- Tess Gerritsen
Orphan X is most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense -- Jonathan Kellerman
Mind blowing! A perfect mix of Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher -- Lisa Gardner
Orphan X is the most exciting thriller I've read since The Bourne Identity ... A new thriller superstar is born! -- Robert Crais
Orphan X is not good. Orphan X is great. Whatever you like best in a thriller - action, plot, character, suspense - Orphan X has it -- Simon Toyne
A new series character to rival Reacher . . . anyone reading Orphan X won't be surprised that a cadre of peers, from Tess Gerritsen to Lee Child, have lined up to praise it * Independent *
Bestseller Hurwitz melds non-stop action and high-tech gadgetry with an acute character study in this excellent series opener . . . Evan Smoak is an electrifying character * Publishers Weekly *
In terms of plot, characters, suspense and innovation, Orphan X is outstanding . . . I've always thought that one reason for Tom Clancy's success was the endless detail he provided about military hardware, and that the James Bond novels benefited from the loving attention Ian Fleming devoted to the martinis, expensive cars and gorgeous women he so admired. Hurwitz outdoes both writers . . . Orphan X is a smart, stylish, state-of-the-art thriller. It's also the start of a series, one that might give Lee Child's Jack Reacher books a run for their money * WASHINGTON POST *
A masterpiece of suspense and thrills . . . Turn off the real world and dive into this amazing start to a new series * Associated Press *
