    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.

    Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional

    Do you need my help? It was always the first question he asked. They called him when they had nowhere else to turn. Raised and trained as part of a top-secret programme, he was sent to the worst places in the world to do things his government denied any knowledge of. Then he broke with the programme and disappeared. But now someone's on his tail. Someone who knows he was once known simply as Orphan X.

    Great story with plot twists.

    Loved this book, can't wait for the sequel. Enough action and great story. Sad and feel good moments alike.

    The Nowhere Man is a figure shrouded in secrecy - a near legendary figure who helps those lucky few who are given the means to reach out to him.

This is the story of Smoak's first outing as the Nowhere Man, where after completing a mission in Northern California, he happens to spot a young woman at a coffee shop....

    Would Love to know someone like this!!

    This could have been the first chapter in a book about Evan Smoak's past. Excellent first short story about his first mission on his own. I usually do..Show More »

    Spoken about only in whispers, it is said that when the Nowhere Man is reached by the truly desperate, he can and will do anything to save them. Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man.

    I'm a fan & ready for book #3!!!!

    I really enjoyed this book. I'm so glad that Gregg Hurwitz has decided to write a series again. I have enjoyed all of his other books and wish that so..Show More »
