    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.

    An Excellent Distraction

    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.

    Excellent!

    I love action and spy and good guy kicking bad guy's butt. This is all that and much more. And...and...it is well written. Which is not always a given..Show More »

    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. Before he was the Nowhere Man, Evan Smoak was a highly trained government operative known to a few as Orphan X. 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.

    Liked the original, moaned over the second!

    A more believable plot relative to Evan's supposed skill set. Stop with the constant melodrama especially during captivity; this portion of the book d..Show More »
