Summary
He was once called Orphan X. As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from a children's home, raised and trained as part of a secret government initiative buried so deep that virtually no one knows it exists. But he broke with the programme, choosing instead to vanish off grid and use his formidable skill set to help those unable to protect themselves. One day, though, Evan's luck ran out ...Ambushed, drugged, and spirited away, Evan wakes up in a locked room with no idea where he is or who has captured him. As he tries to piece together what's happened, testing his gilded prison and its highly trained guards for weaknesses, he receives a desperate call for help. With time running out, he will need to out-think, out-manoeuvre, and out-fight an opponent the likes of whom he's never encountered to have any chance of escape. He's got to save himself to protect those whose lives depend on him. Or die trying ..

Summary
In this sequel to Orphan X, former assassin Evan Smoak (now a freelance vigilante delivering justice) is being pursued by his ex-colleagues from the Orphan Program. They taught him everything he knows about killing, escaping, and disappearing, and they consider him a huge threat to their shadowy organization. Kidnapped and held hostage as his enemies get closer, the story really picks up when his captors realize that though they've trapped him, they're also trapped with him. Moving at a blistering pace, this white-hot read combines the moves of Jack Reacher, the skills of Jason Bourne, and the brains and money of Tony Stark. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
