As a child Evan Smoak was recruited into an off the books program the called Orphan. The program was designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence assets. The children were raised and trained being given the skills to become assassins.
Evan used his skills to escape the program and is now a legendary figure known as the Nowhere Man. Now despite disappearing from his past someone is out there that knows Evan was Orphan X and a part of the program. Using his work to help people as the Nowhere Man against him his enemy is getting closer and closer.
Orphan X is the first book in the new Evan Smoak series by Gregg Hurwitz. The book is a high intensity non-stop thrill ride from start to finish. With multiple angels to the story with the hero trying to help people but yet someone out to get him this was definitely a page turner from beginning to end.
I really enjoyed getting to know Evan in this first installment. One of those off the books heroes that puts their life on the line to help others. Plenty of twists and turns along the line to keep a reader engaged in this story.
Overall, a fast paced, action packed great start to this new series.
I won this book from Goodreads First Reads.
