The explosive Orphan X thriller from bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz.

'HURWITZ FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS' GUARDIAN

TO THOSE WHO TRAINED HIM, HE'S ORPHAN-X. TO THOSE WHO NEED HIM, HE'S THE NOWHERE MAN.

Once a secret government assassin, Evan Smoak walked away to help others.

But when his old handler calls with a warning - the Orphans are being killed off - he also receives a final mission.

A young girl - the last Orphan recruit - is in danger. First, Evan must find her. Then he must protect her.

But those tasked with her elimination will not stop.

And leading them is one of Evan's fellow Orphans - who'll do anything to see him dead . . .

If Bond and Bourne had a lovechild, Evan would be that end product. We're treated to a superb combination of suspense, action, and plot twists from cover to cover. * Shots Magazine *
Nail-biting, twisty thriller . . . [that will] appeal to devotees of Robert Ludlum's "Bourne" series * Library Journal *
This is a great novel ... Do not miss this one * Booklist *
As well-done as the rest of the series and bloody good fun * Kirkus *
A serious contender for best thriller of the year * The Real Book Spy *
Hellbent is Gregg Hurwitz firing on all cylinders * Guardian *

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
Orphan X is his best yet - a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller
Orphan X is the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time!
Orphan X is most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense
Mind blowing! A perfect mix of Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher
Orphan X is the most exciting thriller I've read since The Bourne Identity ... A new thriller superstar is born!
Orphan X is not good. Orphan X is great. Whatever you like best in a thriller - action, plot, character, suspense - Orphan X has it
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 *
