The Nowhere Man – Gregg Hurwitz (Evan Smoak Book 2) – Genre – Action / Thriller
Blurb: That rare thing, a sequel which is better than the original, The Nowhere Man is a thrilling, pulse-pounding ride for readers and the hero of Orphan X . . .
‘An even more intense and harrowing thriller. The pace never lets up’ Daily Mail
He was once called Orphan X.
As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from a children’s home, raised and trained as part of a secret government initiative buried so deep that virtually no one knows it exists. But he broke with the programme, choosing instead to vanish off grid and use his formidable skill set to help those unable to protect themselves.
One day, though, Evan’s luck ran out . . .
Ambushed, drugged, and spirited away, Evan wakes up in a locked room with no idea where he is or who has captured him. As he tries to piece together what’s happened, testing his gilded prison and its highly trained guards for weaknesses, he receives a desperate call for help.
With time running out, he will need to out-think, out-manoeuvre, and out-fight an opponent the likes of whom he’s never encountered to have any chance of escape. He’s got to save himself to protect those whose lives depend on him. Or die trying . . .
The Nowhere Man delivers another masterclass in hi-octane thriller writing.
It doesn’t get better than this.
My Review: Firstly I would like to thank the publishers for the opportunity to read this book before it was published (I don’t think they actually had a choice as I pestered and begged and threatened until they gave in and sent me a copy! WOW what a ride – BUCKLE UP and HOLD ON TIGHT as The Nowhere Man is one hell of an action packed thriller. This book had me on the edge of my seat with my pulse racing from start to finish. I absolutely adore Evan Smoak and this would make a fantastic movie (as long as Tom Cruise doesn’t star in it). A total thrill seeking, action packed, page turning, brilliant book and please Mr Hurwitz hurry up with book 3.
