Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gregg Hurwitz’s Orphan X is his best yet—a real celebration of all the strengths he brings to a thriller.” Lee Child, Anthony Award–winning author
“From the explosive opening where a boy begins his dramatic transformation, Orphan X blows the doors off most thrillers I’ve read and catapults the readers on a cat-and-mouse chase that feels like a missile launch. Brilliantly conceived and plotted, his character Evan Smoak, Orphan X, deserves his own niche in the thriller hero hall of fame. Read this book. You will thank me later.” David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“What is Orphan X? A thrill-a-minute read with twists and turns galore. I’m looking forward to Evan Smoak’s next adventure.” Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author
“With this high-action book, Hurwitz lays the groundwork for a new series that will probably only get better…Hurwitz has endowed his character with an interesting naivete about, and attraction to, familial relationships. He has the potential to become an iconic character.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
