Orphan X Book Summary
Evan Smoak is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to help those with nowhere else to turn. He’s also a man with a dangerous past. Chosen as a child, he was raised and trained as part of the off-the-books black box Orphan program, designed to create the perfect deniable intelligence assets—i.e. assassins. He was Orphan X. Evan broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear.
Now, however, someone is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training. Someone who knows Orphan X. Someone who is getting closer and closer. And will exploit Evan’s weakness—his work as The Nowhere Man—to find him and eliminate him. Grabbing the reader from the very first page, Orphan X is a masterful thriller, the first in Gregg Hurwitz’s electrifying new series featuring Evan Smoak.

Orphan X Book Reviews (Amazon.com)
5.0 out of 5 stars Top Read
Reviewed in the United States on September 25, 2017
A top read. This is one of those books that is so easy to pick up and read. The plot has potential to lead the reader anywhere. Who’s the real target? Who can the Nowhere Man trust? He’s helping two people at the same time, which goes against all his training and his code of ‘One mission at a time.’ But can he trust either of them? If not, they are really, really good at deception. There are no tell-tale signs. On top of all this there’s a possible love interest. It could work out, but how can he let someone else into his world?
Whatever happens the reader is sure right from the beginning that this book is heading for an explosive climax. But against who?
Anyone who loves a protagonist who is daring and audacious, who uses intense force to resolve other people’s crisis’s, who works completely alone, who infiltrates dangerous situations with ease, who is a weapons expert and who is exceptionally resilient and destructive, yet who can blend into the background with ease, will just love Orphan X.
5.0 out of 5 stars A man out for his own form of justice
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 3, 2019
Another great thriller by Gregg Hurwitz. Evan is a great character with a wish just to be a normal man but his justice and compassion for others keep him out of reach. He has a great network of friends who aid him in his missions to write wrongs. A must read..
5.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth it? And for whom exactly? The inclined reader finds answers.
Reviewed in Germany on March 24, 2019
Thrilling agent thriller with a fascinating main character, which on the one hand has outstanding abilities and possibilities (in this respect like a “James Bond”) but on the other hand is a complete loner (more like Michael Sloan’s “Equalizer” or the film of the same name with Denzel Washington in the main role).
Attention: It’s about brutal, unscrupulous killers — for delicately strung natures, maybe too much.
I liked the narrative very much because people and locations are described in detail and very vividly. The action takes place in Los Angeles and Las Vegas — who has been there before will recognize some things. Time and again, there are jumps in time for the main character’s childhood, which brings to light little by little why Evan Smoak is what he is.
In detail: (you know best what is important to you yourself)
sympathetic, interesting main characters: *****
good story/conclusive storyline: ****
plastic description/Atmosphere: *****
sometimes smile or create laughter: ****
thrilling moments of tension: *****
the area well involved: ****
tingling moments: ** Experiencing
interesting things: ****
Conclusion: For me, a captivating reading that inspired me so much that I immediately had to continue reading part 2 and part 3 of the series.
Books in this series:
1) “Orphan X” – Very good – I definitely recommend getting started with this volume
2) “Project Orphan” – is ok but not as good as the other two, you could skip
3) “Revenge of the Orphans” – For me the best part of the series
3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot, mediocre implementation
Reviewed in Germany on July 30, 2017
The plot is really good, the basic idea has a lot of potential, but the implementation is strange.
Partially granidos well written, so that you can put yourself in the character excellently, but sometimes just plump and amateur.
The shooting, for example, in the empty office building, is so incredibly unbelievable and a mere array of facts. It seems like if the subtitles for the hearing impaired of a Bruce Willis film had been copied.
De Autor seems to want to splurge with the number of Asian fighting techniques whose names he can write. But it doesn’t make sense to describe a melee.
Overall, I am very disappointed after the thriller was so praised. I wouldn’t buy it again, and the sequel doesn’t interest me anymore.
