Orphan X

Gregg Hurwitz

As a boy Evan Smoak was chosen, then taken from the orphanage he called home. Raised and trained as part of a top secret programme he was sent to the worst places in the world to do the things his government denied any knowledge of. Then he broke with the programme, using everything he'd learned to disappear. He wanted to help the desperate and deserving. But now someone's on his tail. Someone who has issues with his past. Someone who knows he was once known simply as Orphan X.

Put Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne into a blender. Add one drop of nitro-glycerine and three of sulphuric acid. Switch on, and don’t be surprised if the lid blows off. You’ve just mixed your first Orphan X. Gregg Hurwitz’s fabulous new creation is a character plucked from an orphanage and inducted into a top-secret government programme. He does the dirty work his masters deny all knowledge of. But now he’s disappeared; gone rogue – and someone’s on his tail.
