Move over, Jack Reacher…

March 13, 2017

orphanA friend of mine recommended ‘Orphan X’ by Gregg Herwitz, and boy, am I glad she did. Evan Smoak, the main character is a masterpiece. Trained as an orphan to be an assassin, he now seeks redemption for his past by doing good deeds for those in need. He is complex, damaged and very, very likeable.

I am a Jack Reacher fan, but this book is even better than some of Lee Child’s early books. It is fast paced and very twisty with a good cliff hanger at the end to make you want to read the next one in the series, ‘The Nowhere Man’.  A great “new” author for me that I will look forward to reading again.
