Evan Smoak is on his way back to Los Angeles and stops in a Palo Alto coffee shop. He notices a beautiful woman in the grasp of a man that looks unnatural. Further observation has him believing she shows all the signs of being in an abusive situation. After a little internet searching, he figures out the man is rich and powerful.
the heart of the story…
Here Evan shows us not only how thoroughly he researches all dynamics of a potential operation but his extreme discipline. He accomplishes a lot in a very short period of time and his patience is beyond that of ordinary people.
Scott Brick is Evan Smoak. Period. I’m only listening to the books going forward.
the bottom line…
This is extremely short but manages to firmly establish who Evan is and how the idea of The Nowhere Man took shape. The woman he rescues represents his first client and I’m glad we got this question answered, quickly and succinctly. It definitely whet my appetite for more.
