I really enjoyed this second instalment in the Orphan X series. The pacing was not quite as frenetic as the first one however, I did enjoy the time spent continuing to flesh out Evan's back story and history. This time Evan Smoak - The Nowhere Man - finds the tables turned as he is abducted and held prisoner.
Taken as a child and trained to be an "off the books" assassin for the U.S. Government, Evan engineered his own exit from the programme and returned as a gun for hire...but not just any gun for hire. Evan is the assassin's version of Robin Hood, giving power to the weak and victimized by killing those that victimize them.
"He comes to those in greatest need of his protection".
I'm looking forward to the next instalment in the series - a definite add to my TBR shelf in 2018!
