Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Outstanding in every way." (Lee Child)

"Orphan X blows the doors off most thrillers I've read and catapults the readers on a cat-and-mouse that feels like a missile launch. Read this book. You will thank me later." (David Baldacci)

"Orphan X is his best yet-a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller." (Lee Child)

    As a recently retired "young" pensioner! I now have more time to read and listen to Audio Books as I renovate my house in Spain.

    "Good but not his best."

    This is a complex and gripping story by an excellent writer. I've been waiting quite a while for a new release from Greg Hurwitz and I wasn't disappointed. But in my opinion it was not his best. But still very enjoyable! It finished with plenty of space for a follow on or a series of the nowhere man. Here's hoping we're that lucky!

    "good, spolt with overacted main character"

    a good plot and entertaining characters. some of the situations were a bit far fetched though and it did twist and turn with characters turning up that were only briefly mentioned at the start with an expetion for you to remeber who they were and what the relationship was.

    "Gripped from word 1"

    This is a book you want to end so you know what happens but you don't want to end because it's so good. Scott Brickputs his usual enthusiasm into the narration and I bought the next book of the series before even getting to the end of this one as I want to know what happens to Evan next.

    "Solid but formulaic"

    Enjoyed the listen a lot but not a huge amount to differentiate it from other similar stories in the super-hero type genre. Saying that will listen to the next book for sure!

    Story
    "An enjoyable listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Orphan X the most enjoyable?

    The hero is a real rufty tufty sort


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Orphan X?

    When the baddies were dealt with


    Any additional comments?

    This was very much a Jack Reacher type of book, without the humour. However, it kept me guessing and I enjoyed it.
