It's good, but there are some glaringly obvious 'would never do's, for example holding a pine cone out on an outstretched palm for a sniper to shoot it out of your hand - and hoping he didn't take your hand off! Not as good as Victor The Assassin by Tom Wood, but having said that - I can't wait for book 3!

In the much-anticipated sequel (to me, anyway) to Orphan X, Evan Smoak is back. Evan had been a part of the secret &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;Orphan&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot; project, a project that took orphaned kids and made them into hardened assassins, sent in to do the jobs that the Government wanted &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;off the books'. Following the death of his mentor, Evan instead chose to work pro bono to help those desperately in need of his specialised services. The deal is, you call him, he solves your problem, then you have to give his number to someone else in need.
Following his most recent job of removing a lowlife human trafficker from the world, he realises that there is one more girl out there in the process of being shipped to a buyer. He knows he has to help her, but before he gets too far, he himself is kidnapped by a sociopath, hell bent on staying young and robbing as many people as he can. He identifies Evan through an online transaction and captures him for the purpose of forcing Evan to transfer a large amount of money. No one, except maybe Evan, realises the implications that this one action will bring about.
This is a nail-biting, action-packed thriller that keeps the plot twists coming right up to the last moments. I admit that I started to wonder whether Evan would actually make it out of captivity alive, with the odds so stacked against him, but I should never have underestimated his ingenuity.
Scott Brick was outstanding with the delivery of the story
