ORPHAN X de Gregg Hurwitz : les éloges de la presse américaine

ORPHAN X, le premier livre d’une nouvelle série de thriller écrite par Gregg Hurwitz, tout juste publié aux États-Unis, n’est pas passé inaperçu :

L’Associated Press l’a qualifié de « chef-d’oeuvre » alors que le Los Angeles Times a dédié à Gregg Hurwitz un long portrait et que Patrick Anderson, journaliste au Washington Post, a été également enthousiaste.

Par ailleurs L’American Bookseller Association l’a inclus dans sa liste « Indie Next Great Reads » du mois de février et, selon les rédacteurs d’Amazon, il est l’un des meilleurs thrillers du mois de janvier.

Avant sa publication, les droits de traduction avaient été cédés dans plusieurs pays et les droits cinéma acquis par Warner Bros. !


The first book in a big new thriller series by Gregg Hurwitz

ORPHAN X is the most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher.  And Reacher would love this guy.  A page-turning masterpiece of suspense enriched by compassion and insight.”  – Jonathan Kellerman

Evan Smoak is Orphan X: a hero unlike any seen before. Trained in secrecy from childhood to be a superior assassin, he now uses those skills to aid desperate people in dire situations, removing the abusers from their lives and asking nothing in return, other than the forwarding of his phone number to someone else in need.  Though officially he doesn’t exist, he has powerful enemies from his past who want to eliminate him, and he hides from them in plain sight through a seemingly ordinary life in Los Angeles. In this inaugural book in the Orphan X series, one of Evan’s rescue missions goes horribly wrong, and Evan realizes the person he is trying to save just may be the person who destroys him.

Warner Bros has pre-empted the movie rights in a seven-figure deal!  Hot off his success in American Sniper, Bradley Cooper is attached to star and produce with his producing partner, Todd Phillips (the Hangover movies).
