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

As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from the orphanage he called home and inducted into a top secret Cold War programme. Trained as a lethal weapon, he and his fellow recruits were sent round the world to do the government's dirty work. But the programme was rotten to the core. And now the man responsible needs things to be nice and clean.

All evidence must be destroyed. That includes Evan.

To survive, Evan's going to have to take the fight to his nemesis. There's just one problem with that. Jonathan Bennett is President of the United States and Evan isn't his only victim. To save himself - and the country - Evan is going to have to figure out how to kill the most well-protected man on the planet . . .

Industry Reviews

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 most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense -- Jonathan Kellerman
Orphan X is the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time! -- Tess Gerritsen
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
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 *
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 *
