OUT OF THE DARK – Gregg Hurwitz
This is book four in the Orphan X series.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Hurwitz brings us book 4 in the Orphan X series, and I loved it just as much as HELLBENT. I came into the series late, but I went back to pick up books 1 and 2. I would highly recommend this series to those who love some political intrigue to their thrillers.
The Orphan project was an off-the-books operation that was designed to create assassins. At the age of 12, Evan Smoak was taken from a group home and was raised in the Orphan Program – he was known as Orphan X. After using the skills he was taught, he escapes and becomes the Nowhere Man – the person you go to when you’re truly desperate.
His new life is in jeopardy when he finds out that someone at the highest level of the government is killing off the Orphans and their handlers. Someone wants all traces of the program to be eliminated. The President made the mistake of killing Evan’s handler, and now he has one mission – to seek revenge. What will happen when Orphan A is brought in to take on Evan?
So much action and I love the espionage and intrigue in this. I’ll always be a sucker for those elements in thriller novels. I would highly recommend this series to anyone that’s fascinated with the idea of highly trained secret assassins. It’s quite the battle between Orphans and it’s one you won’t want to miss if you’ve already started the series.
