Orphan X

Orphan X: A Novel (Evan Smoak) - Gregg Hurwitz

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway to give an honest review. I am pleasantly surprised with the beginning... Very suspenseful and wonderfully written. Looking forward to continuing...


I have finished the book and it is truly a great spy thriller. The writing is excellent and polished and the plot does not languish. It style reminds me of the Bourne movies (although I have not read the books) but by no means is this taken from that. This is new and inventive with excellent plot twists.


My only complaints are my own... there is lots of swearing as the story moves on which I don't feel is necessary. There are two sex scenes which I always feel is not needed in a good book. I have taken a 'star' off for these.


A must read (apparently a movie is in the works) before the movie comes out! I will be reading more by this author.
