Gregg Hurwitz introduced readers to ORPHAN X , Evan Smoak (2016 Super Hero) back in January, 2016. Once an orphan, now a man with a dangerous past.

A savior of the victims, the innocent ones—from corruption to sex slaves, while saving himself. When Evan was fourteen, Jack had trained him. The first person to treat him like a human. The Orphan Program. However, he may be targeted and these people are no slouches. Someone knows him and wants him eliminated.

For more than a decade, he had been the top asset in the top-secret government operation, The Orphan Program. Trained by the US military as killers. Mission: to assassinate government’s designated enemies. He is trained, skilled, intelligent, and resourceful.

Now, Evan is "The Nowhere Man." A personal mission--to help those with nowhere else to turn. The Tenth Commandment loomed above all else. Never let an innocent die.

Readers receive a satisfying teaser with, BUY A BULLET (Evan Smokes #1.5). He has spent a lifetime in the vicinity of trauma, usually inflicting it. He is known by some as Evan Smoak. To a few, Orphan X, but in general he is not known at all. The Nowhere Man.

In the action-packed short story, he is on the trail of Silicon Valley Steve Radack, bad-boy of the software dot-com world, the visionary behind Thumbprint, a software that allows one to press a finger to a smartphone and pay for a variety of items.

The focus is Radack’s girlfriend, the lovely Leanne Lattimore.She needs the help of The Nowhere Man. She is in great danger. The daughter of an insurance salesman and a school- teacher.
 


For all, you Orphan X fans, anxiously awaiting THE NOWHERE MAN, Coming, Jan 17, 2017, (Evan Smoak #2); you will be delighted with the first exhilarating "action-packed eleven chapters", to tide you over.

While Evan was done being Orphan X, he’d discovered that there was still work he should do as the Nowhere Man. Pro bono work. One thing was clear, Charles Van Sciver and his Orphans would not stop the hunt until Evan was dead. In the meantime, he stayed off the grid and stayed vigilant. He’s known as the "Nowhere Man", and requests his clients to pay-it-forward by passing on his phone number to the next person in need.

The secret Facebook of Hector Contrell. Trolling the middle schools. Girls. A sales catalog. Given immigration confusion, gang influence, and splintered family trees, disappearances aren’t rare when you’re dealing with broken ethnic girls. A renewable resource.

Something awful is coming. A girl needs help. 1.855.2.NOWHERE. A magical fix-it line. The first commandment Assume nothing – demands it.

A task, a purpose, an act of empowerment that transitioned them from victim to rescuer. Evan knew all too well that some wounds never healed, not fully. But there were ways to contain the pain, to take ownership over the scars.

The seventeen-year-old girl locked inside Container 78653-B812 being delivered to Jacksonville Port Authority. Who has purchased her?

Classic. Bold. Innovative. Action-Packed Adventure. Explosive. Suspenseful. Non-Stop thrills. An Electrifying Series!

Definitely worth the $1.99! Can’t wait for THE NOWHERE MAN. (hope to score SMP ARC).
