The Nowhere Man (Orphan X #2) by Gregg Hurwitz

Susanne’s Review:

Desperate. Methodical. Powerful.

The tables have turned and this time, it’s Evan Smoak (formerly known as Orphan X) who desperately needs help.

Can I just say NO?! Please don’t hurt Evan, I love him!

Held captive by a vicious man with unlimited resources and a need for money, Evan has to use every weapon in his arsenal to save himself. Lucky for him, his captors have no idea who they are dealing with.

Evan is on a time crunch however as there are people counting on him, people who need his help and failure simply isn’t an option. What he didn’t anticipate however is the arrival of mortal enemies.

My heart was in my throat for much of “The Nowhere Man” (as Kaceey can attest) as I just could not fathom how Evan could escape, battling a myriad of armed guards and dogs too ruthless to describe.

My 5 ft. 2 in., petite little self wanted to jump into the book and do battle to save him! (LOL!)

I think I could win Evan Smaok over that way, don’t you?! (Yes, I know that Gregg Hurwitz is married, but a girl can pretend!) Alas, I digress, while I didn’t think that “The Nowhere Man” was quite as good as its predecessor “Orphan X,” I truly enjoyed it and I absolutely loved the last quarter of the book having had an inkling as to what was going to happen from the very beginning. This is a captivating, compelling heart pounding thriller that completely ramps up the suspense as the novel progresses. The ending really pulls out all the stops and makes me super anxious to read Book 3!

This was a fabulous buddy read with Ms. Kaceey!

Thank you to Gregg Hurtwitz for writing a fabulous character driven thriller!

Published on Goodreads on 8.30.20.

Kaceey’s Review:

Uh-Oh… Evan may have just met his match!
Evan Smoak is known as the Nowhere Man. He’s dedicated to helping people who feel hopeless, with no one or nowhere to turn for help. For them, one phone call is all it takes.

But what happens when the tables are turned and someone nabs the Nowhere Man, determined to take away all that he has worked so hard for. His privacy, his anonymity, his money and very possibly his life! Can Evan save himself? Well after all, he is best super hero I know, so…💁🏻‍♀️

“You can’t start over. All you can do is change direction.”

This is book two of the popular Orphan X series, and though it lacked some of the magic as book one, it was still quite a thrill ride!

Oh, and can I just mention the ending!?😱

Susanne and I are binging the series and already have book three Hell Bent queued up and ready to start!
