Publisher's Summary

Spoken about only in whispers, it is said that when the Nowhere Man is reached by the truly desperate, he can and will do anything to save them.
Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man.
Taken from a group home at twelve, Evan was raised and trained as part of the Orphan program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets - i.e. assassins. Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man. But the new head of the Orphan program hasn't forgotten about him and is using all of his assets - including the remaining Orphans - to track down and eliminate Smoak.
But this time, the attack comes from a different angle and Evan is caught unaware. Captured, drugged, and spirited off to a remote location, heavily guarded from all approaches. They think they have him trapped and helpless in a virtual cage but they don't know who they're dealing with - that they've trapped themselves inside that cage with one of the deadliest and most resourceful Orphans.
Continuing his electrifying series featuring Evan Smoak, Gregg Hurwitz delivers a blistering, compelling new novel in the series launched with the breakout national bestseller, Orphan X.

I'm a fan & ready for book #3!!!!

I really enjoyed this book. I'm so glad that Gregg Hurwitz has decided to write a series again. I have enjoyed all of his other books and wish that some of the characters would have gone on to other books because I thought they were so interesting (like Shep from Your Next).
Anyway this book is action from beginning to end. Some of the are a little out there as far as Evan's improvisations but I've said it before about other series, of you like Greaney, Taylor, Thor , Coes and others of this genre then I think Evan Smoak is right up there with the best of them!! The book is great and fills in a lot of what was left out of the first book.
I thought it ended with a fantastic cliff hanger and I can't wait for the third book in this series to be released.
Scott Brick, as always gave an excellent performance.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Liked the original, moaned over the second!

What would have made The Nowhere Man better?

A more believable plot relative to Evan's supposed skill set. Stop with the constant melodrama especially during captivity; this portion of the book droned on and on and could have been trimmed by half.


Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

The jury is out!


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The last two and a half hours of the book were more in keeping with what I was expecting.


Any additional comments?

A highly trained warrior, an expert internet hacker with vast layers of anonymity , and having sophisticated international banking skills gets trapped by a FEDEX delivery? Really? "Expect the unexpected", yet time and again Evan walks into the unexpected! Piling misery upon misery upon misery, the narrator at times made me want to cry out "ENOUGH"! Shorten the book, get to the point and get the job done next time.
