Orphan X By Gregg Hurwitz


For fans of well-plotted, action-packed thrillers, in the same vein as I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes, at last here is a book that will fill the gap in your hunt for similar excellence. Gregg Hurwitz seems to go from strength-to-strength and this is the first book in what will become a series. Twelve-year-old Evan Smoak is rescued from a life of neglect and trained in a secret government program as an assassin. You may roll your eyes at this point, but, rest assured this is not remotely infantile, or cheesy – even though it’s a familiar plot structure. Hurwitz’ great writing, clever plot twists and character complexity result in a wonderful new hero, who, when he drops out of the program, dedicates his life to helping others who have no one else to turn to. I loved it – highly recommended.
