INTO THE FIRE by Gregg Hurwitz

The New York Times bestselling Orphan X returns – just when Evan Smoak thinks he’s done, his deadliest job yet pulls him back Into The Fire…

INTO THE FIRE: An Orphan X novel
by Gregg Hurwitz
Minotaur Books, January 2020

Evan Smoak lives by his own code. Once he was known as Orphan X. Trained as an off-the-books government assassin and spoken about only in whispers, Evan Smoak was one of the most talented – and most feared – men in the Program. But he broke free and reinvented himself as The Nowhere Man, a figure shrouded in mystery, known for helping the truly desperate.

If anyone is truly desperate, it’s Max Merriweather. Max is at the end of his rope. His cousin has been brutally murdered, leaving Max an envelope that contains nothing but a mysterious key. However, someone really wants that key, badly enough that Max – and anyone he turns to – is in deadly danger. What seems like a simple job for The Nowhere Man turns out to be anything but. Behind every threat he takes out, a deadlier one emerges and Evan Smoak must put himself in greater danger than ever before as he heads once more Into The Fire.

Critically acclaimed, his novels have graced top ten lists and have been published in 22 languages.

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

by Gregg Hurwitz
Minotaur Books, early 2016

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).
