Publisher's Summary

Evan Smoak - government assassin gone rogue - returns in Hellbent, an engrossing, unputdownable thriller from Gregg Hurwitz, the latest in his #1 international bestselling Orphan X series. 
Taken from a group home at age twelve, Evan Smoak was raised and trained as an off-the-books government assassin: Orphan X. After he broke with the Orphan Program, Evan disappeared and reinvented himself as the Nowhere Man, a man spoken about only in whispers and dedicated to helping the truly desperate. 
But this time, the voice on the other end is Jack Johns, the man who raised and trained him, the only father Evan has ever known. Secret government forces are busy trying to scrub the remaining assets and traces of the Orphan Program and they have finally tracked down Jack. With little time remaining, Jack gives Evan his last assignment: find and protect his last protégé and recruit for the program. 
But Evan isn't the only one after this last Orphan - the new head of the Orphan Program, Van Sciver, is mustering all the assets at his disposal to take out both Evan (Orphan X) and the target he is trying to protect.

Easily earns 5 stars!

I was not a huge fan of author Gregg Hurwitz until he released Orphan X two years ago. Evan Smoak is one of the most compelling new protagonist to be introduced in the suspense thriller genre during recent years. The second book titled The Nowhere Man arrived a year ago. I wrote a 3 star review of The Nowhere Man which is wrong and which I regret (and which I wish I could rewrite). Hellbent, the just released third novel in the Evan Smoak series released today, is outstanding in every way. Scott Brick's narration is pitch perfect.

Bring the thunder

Evan Smoak's commandment to “Never make it personal” literally goes out the window with the death of his mentor, Jack. But bloodlust gets stalled as he is forced to take on a rescue mission – Jack’s last assignment to him. Now he has a new dilemma – how to mix revenge and rescue without blowing either or both missions. The young girl, Joey, that he is now stuck with, forces him to face what he used to be before the Orphan program made him into who he is now, and this stirs conflicting feelings that he would rather not face. They are a distraction to his revenge obsession. But Joey’s distractions provide the heart and humor to the story, and even inspire Evan to start making some new commandments of his own – “Don’t fall in love with plan A”.

There are some minor nits to pick – the constant vodka and fire arms tutorials get a little old, and the sub plot with his neighbor, Mia, was an unnecessary sideline in this outing. But setting those aside, I still enjoyed the inventiveness of Evan’s schemes to vanquish the bad guys, and the continued character growth. A strong willingness to suspend disbelief is needed for this series, but if you are willing and able to just go for the ride, then Evan will take you on one wild roller-coaster, tugging on your heartstrings at the same time.
