Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz

I really liked this over the top thriller. What's not to like? There is a great hero, Evan. He's a super trained secret black ops assassin for the government. But he is a man with a conscious. When he realizes his latest assignment is one that should not be, he wants out. He thinks he's made it safely and takes up doing good for others in desperate need. But soon a betrayal puts his life in danger and he has no idea who is after him or why.

Evan has been highly trained so he has all kinds of high tech gadgets. It's almost like 007 on steroids. There are so many suspenseful scenes I had to stop and take a breath from time to time. And just when I thought Evan was all machine with no emotion, a hint of romance drops into his life.

I recommend this novel to readers who like a high tech, well trained assassin type of thriller. Some of the action might have been over the top but it was a good read.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
