"A shocking stunner in every way. The perfect thriller." ―Robert Crais

When darkness closes in―he's your last, best hope. Evan Smoak returns in Gregg Hurwitz’s #1 international bestselling Orphan X series.

 

Taken from a group home at age twelve, Evan Smoak was raised and trained as part of the Orphan Program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets―i.e. assassins. Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the Program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man, a man who helps the truly desperate when no one else can. But now Evan's past is catching up to him.

 

Someone at the very highest level of government has been trying to eliminate every trace of the Orphan Program by killing all the remaining Orphans and their trainers. After Evan's mentor and the only father he ever knew was killed, he decided to strike back. His target is the man who started the Program and who is now the most heavily guarded person in the world: the President of the United States.

But President Bennett knows that Orphan X is after him and, using weapons of his own, he's decided to counter-attack. Bennett activates the one man who has the skills and experience to track down and take out Orphan X―the first recruit of the Program, Orphan A.

 

With Evan devoting all his skills, resources, and intelligence to find a way through the layers of security that surround the President, suddenly he also has to protect himself against the deadliest of opponents. It's Orphan vs. Orphan with the future of the country―even the world―on the line.

Praise 

 

"Out of the Dark is a stunner. I thought Gregg Hurwitz couldn’t get any better, but his latest Orphan X novel proved me wrong. Shut the blinds, turn off your phone and TV, and get some sleep now, because once you start this book you won’t want to stop.” ―Meg Gardiner, author of UNSUB and Into the Black Nowhere

 

"Explosive... Hurwitz is at the top of this game." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

 

"A stunning, action-packed plot that will leave readers breathless with anticipation and begging for more." ―The Real Book Spy

 

"The plotting is clever, the action is nearly constant and usually over-the-top, and X has something resembling a moral core. Bad guys get what bad guys deserve... Hurwitz fans will certainly enjoy this latest entry in the series." ―Kirkus Reviews

 

"Evan Smoak roars back with a vengeance in the fourth Orphan X thriller...this installment is as tightly plotted, efficiently written, and, yes, as curiously plausible as its predecessors. If Jack Reacher fans haven't checked out Smoak yet, they're missing a sure bet." –Booklist
