Orphan X - Gregg Hurwitz
The Nowhere Man is a legendary figure spoken about only in whispers.
It’s said that when he’s reached by the truly desperate and deserving,
the Nowhere Man can and will do anything to protect and save them. But
he’s not merely a legend.
Evan Smoak is a man with skills, resources, and a personal mission to
help those with nowhere else to turn. He’s also a man with a dangerous
past. Chosen as a child, he was raised and trained as an Orphan, an
off-the-books black box program designed to create the perfect deniable
intelligence asset: An assassin. Evan was Orphan X―until he broke with
the program and used everything he learned to disappear. But now someone
is on his tail. Someone with similar skills and training who will
exploit Evan’s secret new identity as the Nowhere Man to eliminate him.
