My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mark Twain famously said of writing that it involves chasing your characters up trees and throwing rocks at them.
Gregg Hurwitz has this down to an art. Poor Evan Smoak! First we learned about Orphan X in his debut novel, and now he's back, the Nowhere Man who takes phone calls from strangers desperate for help. All he asks is that they pay it forward by giving his number to someone else who's desperate and has nowhere to turn.
Of course, no good deed goes unpunished, and Evan finds himself up to his neck--and beyond--in troubles when a bad guy takes him prisoner.
If you like nail-biting, page turning suspense with a high level of gore. then the Orphan X books are for you. I can't wait for the next one!
