Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Out of the Dark by Gregg Hurwitz. 

As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from the orphanage he called home and inducted into a top secret Cold War programme. Trained as a lethal weapon, he and his fellow recruits were sent round the world to do the government's dirty work. 

But the programme was rotten to the core. And now the man responsible needs things to be nice and clean. All evidence must be destroyed. That includes Evan. 

To survive, Evan's going to have to take the fight to his nemesis. There's just one problem with that. Jonathan Bennett is President of the United States, and Evan isn't his only victim. 

To save himself - and the country - Evan is going to have to figure out how to kill the most well-protected man on the planet....

loved it!!

I could listen to the narrator read the phone book. He really brings the story to life. I loved the story and found myself laughing out loud in some parts.
The mix me humour and action is great.

I hope the next book comes out soon. off the find another book narrated by Scott brick now

Excellent way to lose yourself

I love this series. Well told page turner that doesn’t disappoint like so many other series. Can’t wait for the next instalment . Enjoy just as I did. Orphan x should be made into a film. It’s complete escapism and brilliantly written.
