"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"--

Good read. Not as good as the first book, but I am still excited about what is up and coming in the series!

At first I thought it would be good, but not my type of book.

Admittedly not as good as the first in the series (Orphan X) but still a solid read. The story seems to rely less on nonstop action and a bit more on building the character of Evan Smoak and his struggle between his self-professed duty to those that need help and his own growing desire to lead a "normal" life.
That being said, there still are exciting scenes of Evan attempting to escape from people who have no idea who he is, or what they've gotten themselves into by capturing him. I'm looking forward to a third book, if there is one.

This 2nd Orphan X book was a slower read than the first one. The whole middle section with him trying to escape the chalet seemed to drag on forever. I actually put it aside for a couple of days while I read another book, then went back and forced myself to finish it. The pace picked back up after he left the chalet. The cliffhanger for the 3rd book looks good. I'll look forward to it being better than this one.

I hate to give this five stars, as it was precisely written for TV/Movies, that much is obvious - - but it was still an excellent action/entertainment novel. With state-of-the-art espionage technology! [But for gosh sakes, would the authors have their main action characters doing real exercises once in awhile, and quit it already with the pushups and situps, two of the most useless exercises there. Suggestion: Yoga for staying in overall healthy condition, but also handstand pushups, and variations thereof, improvised weights, balance exercises, other gymnastic exercises, unarmed combat routines, et cetera.]
