welcome to Tuesday, where Monday's history and Friday's a ...

Welcome to Tuesday! Today I am bringing you my review of the very addictive, action packed, and very hard to put down book entitled:

Orphan X (Orphan X #1)

If you are looking for something that will have you rapidly turning pages, spending your day and part of your night reading a most enticing thriller, than this book is for you.

Evan Smoak is quite a guy. He has a multitude of skills and is on a mission to help those who have no where to turn. He takes on people who find themselves at the ends of their ropes, thrown into despair, with no hope in sight, and provides then with a way to find their life once again.

Evan is powerful, he is trained, he anticipates and knows his way around the very worst of the criminal elements. Trained as a young child in all the arts of self defense, mind control, and resistance to pain, Evan was part of s secretive Orphan program, whose mission was to work undercover with a high level of plausible deniability. (in other words working for the government) However, Evan disappears and breaks with the program that trained him, including his beloved mentor/father Jack. He disappears and clandestinely offers his service to those in need.

However, someone is onto to Evan and he must use all his skills as The Nowhere Man to combat the evil that is at his door.

Told with multiple twists and turns and introducing Evan as a character that one can admire, Gregg Hurwitz has created a most thrilling thriller. The pages fly by and the level of tense action and situations push this book forward to a most satisfying conclusion. This book is the start of a series and it is already out for readers to enjoy. I know I will continue to follow Evan and his exploits in the next book.

Many thanks to Gregg Hurwitz for putting the zing into this thriller, Minatour Books, and NetGalley for providing this reader with a copy of the excellent, engrossing book. Onto the next book for me.
