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 . . .

The Nowhere Man delivers another masterclass in hi-octane thriller writing.

“Superb on all levels and a must-read for all thriller fans.” ―Providence Journal

"Beautifully rendered... genius at work." ―Winnipeg Free Press
“Hurwitz knows how to put the reader deep in the mind of his hero as the pace never lets up.” ―Associated Press
“Will keep readers on the edge of their seats… Hurwitz’s engaging, sympathetic characters place this thriller above the pack.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A brilliant sequel. As good as Orphan X was, this is an even better novel, mostly because of its more claustrophobic setting, its captivating villain, and the way the author keeps ratcheting up the danger, including one really clever twist near the end of the book. Where there’s Smoak, there’s fire―and plenty of it.” ―Booklist (starred review) 
“Fans of Jack Reacher will love Evan Smoak, a man who will do anything to aid the innocent (something he never was).” ―Library Journal

My Review:  OMG guys in this one the Nowhere Man is a prisoner and man was this good!! This book was so full of action that by the time it was over I kind of wanted to start it all over again. I could not put it down.  Hurwitz did an amazing job with this story and the characters and I think I am sold on thriller/suspense novels now.  This might have ruined me for all others though.  This one does deal with human trafficking so be aware of that, please.  This one reminded me of those Mission Impossible movies. And I loved every second of it!
