‘Do you need my help?’
They called him Orphan X. Evan Smoak used to be a government secret weapon.
Then he ran and became the man you call on when you’ve nowhere else to turn.
This time it’s a teenage runaway called Joey.
Like Evan she’s no innocent: she was brought up inside the same programme that raised him.
Now Evan must find Joey before those hunting her do.
Which is where the trouble begins.
Because this might not be about Joey at all.
And if it’s not, then it must be about Evan.
But finding out why could kill them both …
I have read the other books in the Orphan X series and loved them, this one was absolutely thrilling too. I loved going on the journey with Evan Smoak and meeting some of the characters he comes into contact with. I like Mia and her son Peter, he seems to come out with some funny stuff that he says to Evan and in this book I liked Joey. I wonder will there be another book.

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 . . .
After reading Orphan X I was really looking forward to reading the next instalment, I think to learn Evan Smoak’s background you really need to read Orphan X first. The story captivates you and intrigues you. I wanted to see what would be next for Evan and this book really does not disappoint. I did feel as though the ending wasn’t as good as it could of been but I will look forward to the next book.
