The Nowhere Man by Gregg Hurwitz @GreggHurwitz @ScottBrick @BrilliancePub


the setup…
Evan Smoak, formerly known as Orphan X when he was part of the Orphan program and now operating as the Nowhere Man, responds to his latest client’s plea for help. She’s fallen into the clutches of human traffickers and after he “resolves” the issue, it occurs to him he may have left other innocents behind. When he locates the lair, he realizes (too late) that he’s fallen into a dangerous trap and is in the fight of his life as he faces formidable enemies who are determined o see his demise.

the heart of the story…
I’d gotten comfortable thinking there wasn’t a situation where Evan couldn’t manage his way out but here it seemed like the challenges were insurmountable. His captor’s end game wasn’t immediately clear and in the meantime, people from his past seemed to be working on parallel paths to find him. There was a new danger around every turn and it was impossible to gauge truth from lies and subterfuge. I got brain camps trying to work through everything until it all became crystal clear.

the narration…
Scott Brick continues to embody this character in a way that works for me. He also brought some scary and sinister qualities to all those baddies in this one. I remain committed to listing to the entire series.

the bottom line…
I never felt like I could take a breath during this story and worried for Evan the entire time. He was in serious trouble and the resolution brought its own twists and surprises. It was exciting, suspenseful and nerve wracking, which was just what I was hoping for. Hang on because this was the bumpiest of rides with a cliffhanger ending!

  1. Excellent review! You can see why once I started I bought them all and binged right through them on audio. Scott Brick is excellent and I’ve listened to him on several series and yet I always enjoy it and feel like the characters are distinct.
