As a child, Evan Smoak was plucked out of a group home, raised and trained as an off-the-books assassin for the government as part of the Orphan program. When he broke with the program and went deep underground, he left with a lot of secrets in his head that the government would do anything to make sure never got out.When he remade himself as The Nowhere Man, dedicated to helping the most desperate in their times of trouble, Evan found himself slowly back on the government’s radar. Having eliminated most of the Orphans in the program, the government will stop at nothing to eliminate the threat they see in Evan. But Orphan X has always been several steps ahead of his pursuers.Until he makes one little mistake…Now the President has him in her control and offers Evan a deal – eliminate a rich, powerful man she says is too dangerous to live and, in turn, she’ll let Evan survive. But when Evan left the Program he swore to only use his skills against those who really deserve it. Now he has to decide what’s more important – his principles or his life.
Brief Summary The Last Orphan by Gregg Hurwitz
The results seem mixed. On the positive side, he does a very good job in portraying how Evan begins to grapple with aging and continues to grapple with establishing emotional connections with others.On the less positive side, Hurwitz seems to be trying to add a sheen of literary seriousness by adding more stream of consciousness passages and by evoking The Great Gatsby and especially Heart of Darkness, with long references to a powerful man who weaves a mysterious spell amid fog, labyrinthine hallways and megalomaniac speeches. All this slows down the narrative. The greatest drawback of this reach for complexity, though, is the portrayal of Evan’s prime antagonist (Luke) as neither clearly good or bad. The resulting interactions between Evan and Luke are more like psychological drama than thriller, and therefore the resolution can’t deliver the emotional kick of the best thrillers.
