The Nowhere Man by Gregg Hurwitz

The Nowhere Man by Gregg Hurwitz

I’m happy to see Evan Smoak return in Nowhere Man, the 2nd installment of the new series from Gregg Hurwitz. You may recall his debut novel, Orphan X, which I told you about last April.

Evan Smoak, aka Orphan X, is a former member of an elite warrior group, created and trained in the shadows with complete deniability and absolute secrecy. He’s now retired and serving as a Good Samaritan, passing along his secret phone number to struggling victims who he’s determined to help.

When they call, he answers with this simple question:

“Do you need my help?”

Warner Bros. is negotiating to buy the movie rights to Orphan X to be played by Bradley Cooper.

I also like Hurwitz’s now abandoned series about Tim Rackley, the Deputy U.S Marshall and elite manhunter. He’s reportedly working with TNT to develop a TV series based on the Rackley books, but nothing is out yet. If you want to try the Tim Rackley series, which I highly recommend, start with Kill Clause, the first book in the 4 book series.
