Publisher's Summary

This program includes audio-exclusive bonus content featuring Gregg Hurwitz.

A thrilling new story featuring Gregg Hurwitz's New York Times best-selling Orphan X!

Joey Morales was the last recruit of the government's full black operation, the Orphan Program. Trained to be an assassin until she washed out, she was rescued by Evan Smoak, the former agent known as Orphan X.

Now Joey, still a teenager and under the watchful eye of Evan Smoak, lives on her own (with Dog the dog) and attends college.

While on campus, she tries to stop a young woman's suicide attempt - and fails. Then Joey uncovers the reason for Becca Morgan's desperate act - a document called The List, which ranks and rates women around campus based on their sexual appeal and performance.

Determined to find the boys behind The List, the ones whose callous acts drove Becca Morgan to suicide, Joey recruits the help of her mentor, Orphan X, and uses all her skills to uncover and expose the ones responsible.

Usually working from the shadows, Joey has to put herself on the line and in harm's way this time to not just avenge the dead, but to protect the rest of the women who are targets of the hidden cabal behind The List.

Excellent

I absolutely love the Evan Smoak series of nail-biting, heart-stopping thrillers by best-selling and award-winning author Gregg Hurwitz. Actually, I listened to all his works that are available in audiobook format and I consider him one of the best writers out there.

In order to make the year-long wait for the next full Orphan X adventure easier and hopefully to introduce new fans to this awesome series, Mr. Hurwitz just released The List, An Orphan X Short Story brought to life by his go to narrator, series veteran, the extremely talented Scott Brick.

Scott delivers another perfect performance, which is to be expected of a voice-over artist of his renown. I was really happy to spend time in his company, as he tells us this story about bullying, unfairness and justice.

I highly recommend The List to any Orphan X fan and also to those who want a sweet morsel of this great author's writing style. The audiobook version is definitely better than the print one as its narrated by one of the best voices in the industry.

Wow!

Gregg and Scott have done it again! Another excellent book. This time we get a short story about Joey Morales! She's definitely a badass! I think she's just as dangerous as X, but in a different way. She makes an excellent counterpart to Evan! It's hard to imagine how she managed to constrain herself the way she did instead of going all "X" on these guys. I'm glad Gregg made this short about Joey. It makes me appreciate her character even more. I'd love to see more short stories with a few other characters in the series. As always, Scott does an outstanding job with the narration!

As good as ever

A little nugget of scrumptious Orphan X in a unique, and unexpected package. This is an interesting change in perspective. Loved it.

Great short story

It is always difficult to write a high-quality short story, but this one further develops the two main characters in the Orphan X series. Highly recommended.

Great Story

I don’t often do reviews so when I do it’s for a reason. This was GREAT. I also normally hate the shorts. As I like to lock in for a good long listen but still I loved this one. Great listen til the next full length comes out. And Joey needs to get her own full length. Like Mickey Haller with the Bosch series. Different stories but they always tie in. Check it out people that’s what I am saying !!!

Fantastic short story featuring Joey Morales. I recommend the Audible version with super-narrator Scott Brick.


Read the publisher’s synopsis with a pinch of salt, because the last 1/3 is hype. Joey Morales, grudgingly takes easy-peasy computer-sciences classes at UCLA, to please Evan Smoak. She prefers to sit in on graduate level classes, like bioinformatics, especially when she can tell the professor that he’s screwing up his algorithms.
Uni is going okay until Joey tries to stop another student’s suicide attempt. Becca Morgan throws herself off the seventh floor balcony—in front of Joey. Becca takes her last breath on the ground outside Boyer Hall, Joey cradling her. Like her mentor, Orphan X, Joey can’t the overlook the cruelty of the frat boys who caused Becca to jump. So Joey plans to exact vengeance in a sort of fairish and squarish manner.

The kindle version includes about 50 pages of Hurwitz’s next Orphan X book, “Prodigal Son.” I skipped the teaser.
The Audible version includes an audio-exclusive interview with Gregg Hurwitz and several Orphan X fans. This was a fun listen all ‘round, because Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators.

This series is awesome

Even the little shorts...they are all so well written that when you are done you have that weird feeling you have after you open Christmas presents up on Christmas morning. You are excited but sad that it’s over. Every single one of these books are action packed and the characters are fleshed out yet still developing. Joey really shines in this short story. Can’t wait to see where the author takes the two of these orphans next.

It's about Josephine, aka, Joey. and Orphan X

I love the Orphan X series, so of course I liked this short novella. However, I am not a tremendous fan of the character Joey. She is a young female who washed out of the Orphan training program. I much prefer Evan, aka Orphan X. He is magnificent in every way, in my opinion. Evan has taken an interest in Joey and is trying to protect and guide her. He financially supports her and is sending her to college. She is a daughter figure to him and even though she pretends to dislike Evan, I believe Joey loves him as a father figure.

This story is about Joey at college who is very much offended by some awful fraternity boys who are rating women on degrading attributes. Joey can inflict revenge in a big scale. Orphan X is always watching her back.

Perfection

I have greatly enjoyed all the Orphan X novels, but this short story about Joey, his sort of ward, is truly spectacular. Worth getting to know the series in order to get the most out of this gem of a study in the emotional interactions of two wounded souls, with all their prickly edges and deep (non-romantic) love. Especially recommended for anyone who has ever been a teenager or who lives a teenager, and even more so if you’ve known and loved a brilliant teen who is smarter than all their peers. This story made me glad I’ve started trying harder to resist “grade inflation” in my reviews, so I can reserve five stars for truly extraordinary gems like this story and its narrator.
