    I love this series so much. If you?re new to it, Orphan X is kind of like the equalizer with heart. While I recommend starting with book 1 just because it?s awesome, you can absolutely start here. The author does an excellent job of giving just enough backstory for new readers w...

    3.5~4? ?Evan waited for two of them to cross by the front gate. Then he seated the accelerator against the floor. The Ram shot forward, 240 horses and 420 pound-feet of torque powering more than two tons of Detroit Steel through the perimeter fence. The gate smashed down, crushing...

    Update 3/2/19: Having just finished Orphan X #3.5 The Intern, which was awful, I am upgrading this to 4 stars. I realized that I liked the current stories in this book, and my earlier lower rating attributable to the old assassination story (see below), which lacked the context and int...

    3.5 stars In this 4th book in the "Orphan X" series Evan Smoak - also known as Orphan X - plans to kill the President of the United States, Jonathan Bennett. The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the series is a plus. ***** When Evan Smoak was a child Jo...

    4.5 stars Out of the Dark is the fourth book in the Orphan X series and my favorite since the first in the series. I loved the first book and its balance between the Orphan Program aspects of the story and Evan?s constant urge to atone for his past. Out of the Dark achieves the sa...

    If I'm ever in trouble, I hope someone calls Evan Smoak for me! Orphan X is back in the 4th installment of this fast paced, fun thriller series and he's going after his most hated opponent yet, the President of the United States. The prologue shows us a very interesting scene in Russia...

    This is the fourth novel in the Orphan X series. Again, you could read it as a stand alone, but I wouldn?t recommend it. Evan Smoak was plucked out of an orphanage at the age of 12 and trained to be able to kill anyway you could possibly imagine while remaining totally off the grid. ...

    Evan Smoak?s first mission as a nineteen-year-old in 1997 sent him to an Eastern European country to take out a general who was going to make the region unstable. Well, more unstable than it already was. At the time, current President Bennett was just an undersecretary at the Departm...

    "There are no good guys. There are no bad guys. There's only what needs to be done." Nobody writes thrillers like Gregg Hurwitz, particularly his Orphan X series. What an incredible group of books, full of pulse-quickening suspense, whip-cracking action, and at their heart, a flawed...

    *4.5 + Evan Smoak is the kind of guy you have to like--a trained killer with a big heart. There was once a top-secret government program that took orphans from orphanages and trained them to be expert assassins. Evan is one of those, known as Orphan X. At some point he'd had eno...

    This was brilliant - absolutely brilliant. I remember reviewing book one and making snide comments about Evan and his vodka fetish and the living wall. Well these things are still very much in evidence and I don't care any more. Evan is amazing anyway! What a book. Absolute non stop...

    This was headed for 5 stars until a bit of excessive bad-guy violence (on the good people), prevented it. I prefer more bad guys getting what they deserve in a righteous pounding, instead of the decimation of innocents. This is a continuing theme in the previous 3 Orphan stories as wel...

    The fourth Orphan X novel works well as a stand alone story even though the third book does lead into it. Orphan X was part of a government program to raise orphans to be assassins. After a time, his conscience got the better of him. He went off on his own as the Nowhere Man, setting u...

    Oh Hellooo ... I have a new crush, you've guessed it, Evan Smoak! What a ride. Plot is sort of Jason Bourne'ish, action is nail biting good. Evan vs. the bad guys, secret service, D.C. po po. Big guns, small guns, mortar, Matcha Latte -- he's well armed and get things done. I can't...

    This was good. The series was good. And I'm happy to say we're done. I think this, like the other three books in the series was hard to get into. And after four books I figured out why. But before we get to that, some pluses. This book is so fast-paced, it would get a speeding t...

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Orphan X series. It?s in the vein of James Bond and the Jason Bourne novels? your highly trained super-agent who can?t be beaten, and half the fun is seeing what crazy stuff Gregg Hurwitz is going to come up with next. In this one, Evan (Orphan X) is out to a...
