Into the Fire by Gregg Hurwitz @GreggHurwitz @ScottBrick @BrilliancePub

the setup…
Evan Smoak (Orphan X) is reassessing his life now that he’s eliminated all of those within the government who were hunting him down. There is only one possibility remaining of him receiving a request for help as The Nowhere Man and he may end it there. When he receives the call, it’s from Max Merriweather, a man who’s down on his luck, alone and now running for his life. His cousin Grant was recently murdered but had left him an envelope to deliver to someone in the event of his death. He’s tried to do that but now knows he’s being hunted by an extremely dangerous man.

the heart of the story…
Evan was distracted throughout this story as he tries to determine who he’s going to be beyond The Nowhere Man and that seriously put him off his game. The threat against Max was monumentally larger than either of them thought and Evan kept ignoring instincts, increasing the risk to his own livelihood. Now that Joey has returned to Los Angeles, he has help and someone who has his back. I’m loving how their relationship is deepening as both are in over their heads in uncharted territory here. I also liked that Max’s personal circumstances were explored, providing insights about him that strangely gave Evan perspective as he navigated his own new directions.

the narration…
Brick is the voice of the series as well as Evan and I’m loving his performances. He outdid himself here.

the bottom line…
Each time I start the next book in this series, I can’t imagine how it will outdo the last or go somewhere new and each time I’m nicely surprised. Evan had me worried for his safety and survival for most of the story and his dangerous encounters were over-the-top scary. This one was beyond exciting and emotionally draining…in a good way. Still fresh after five books.

  1. Excellent review! Joey! I love these so much. I’m so glad I waited to read them until there were some available because waiting a year for each one would be rough.
