Waterstones Says

Fuelled by relentless pacing and moral complexity, the latest explosive instalment in Hurwitz’s bestselling Orphan X series sees Evan Smoak tracing a kidnapped teenager whose fate seems directly linked to her father’s shadowy past.

The hero
Evan Smoak: former off-the-books assassin - code name Orphan X. His world is divided into those who deserve his help and those who've brought his singular brand of justice upon themselves.

The victim
A desperate father reaches out. His teenage daughter Anjelina has been kidnapped by a brutal criminal cartel and spirited over the border into Mexico. And while money is no object, Evan soon realises that his prospective client's past is as clouded and compromised as his own.

The mission
If Evan is going to put his life on the line to rescue Anjelina, he must first decide whether he can act on behalf of a bad man. And even then, up against the men who are holding his daughter, there will be no guarantee of success...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Nonstop action and relentless pacing are matched by deeply philosophical and powerfully emotional undertones. Unlike comparable series that tend to lose steam after several instalments, this series just gets better as it evolves' - Publishers Weekly

'Hurwitz gives his seventh Orphan X thriller an epic scope, writing with verve and color... A crackerjack thriller that briskly enhances the legend of Orphan X' - Kirkus

'The Orphan X series has always been about moral ambiguity and the razor-thin line separating right from wrong, but this novel takes Evan even farther down the dark road than he's been before... Evan Smoak is one of thrillerdom's most compelling characters, and Hurwitz keeps revealing new aspects of his complex personality. Another sure-fire hit' - Booklist
