Very entertaining book but resolution seemed haphazard after good build-up. Overall I am an avid reader of the Orphan X series with Hellbent being the best and The Nowhere Man the worst in the strong series but would put this chapter somewhere in the middle. Good use and development of continuing characters but needed a more impactful ending.
Another great nowhere man book. There are about 25 action adventure authors I read; Gregg Hurwitz is one of the five I can't wait to start reading. Not just a great action book but a well put together read.
Out of the Dark by Gregg Hurwitz is the fourth book in his Orphan X series. This latest offering is a thriller of the first order. Orphan X continues his exciting personal missions.
Evan is subject number twenty-four in the Department of Defense covert Orphan Program and has been given the codename Orphan X. Evan left the Orphan Program because he could no longer see himself as a mindless killer sent on missions not of his choosing. As the Nowhere Man, Evan now uses his training and resources to help desperate people with nowhere else to turn.
Hurwitz has created a captivating cast. Each character has a complete backstory. These characters are complex but not confusing. The plot is also fully engaging. There are enough twists to keep the reader interested without being predictable. The ending is satisfying but leaves enough mystery to allow for an addition to the series.
Out of the Dark is a complete success and I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to lovers of political intrigue. There is some violence but not enough to deter the average reader, though the very squeamish may be offended.
