Today, I finished another Gregg Hurwitz novel. I read The Nowhere Man, which is the second book of the Orphan X series. As in the first book, Evan Smoak finds himself in an incredible, unbelievable adventure. What starts with as little as a napkin holder, soon turns into the most dangerous mission The Nowhere Man has ever faced. Ball bearings within ball bearings.
I really liked Orphan X. It was a James Bond-esque story that had your grip from the first page. I was happy that my expectations were met. The Nowhere Man kicks in where Orphan X left off. Not in a sense of time, but in a sense of flow. The way the story goes, it holds you. And only lets you go at the last page.
When I was half through the book, I started wondering about this series. I know it’s Gregg’s latest book to date, but will there be next? I found out that there’d be more books in the series (and according to some guy on Goodreads, at least four!). Yes! Yes, yes yes!
I enjoyed this book. It was what I wanted to read, without me knowing I wanted to read it. The story is great, Evan Smoak is a well-crafted character suited perfectly for the plot he gets thrown into. I can’t wait for the next Orphan X novel.
If you haven’t read this book, or it’s predecessor Orphan X, you should. I’m going to start a “Read Gregg Hurwitz books” campaign, starting today! So if you haven’t, now’s the time. They’re great. The Nowhere Man is an awesome story. Worth 5 stars if you ask me.
