AN EXCLUSIVE EBOOK SHORT STORY, NOT A FULL-LENGTH NOVEL.

Taken from a children's home as a young boy, Evan Smoak was a trained to become a government operative known as Orphan X. But then he broke with the programme.

Now living out of sight and out of reach of his former employers, Evan chances upon a young woman in a coffee shop in Northern California who needs his help. Brutalized and under the control of a very powerful, dangerous man, she knows her life is at risk if she doesn't escape. And Evan knows that only a man with his particular set of skills has any chance of setting her free. His next move was never in doubt.

Buy A Bullet is the story of the day Orphan X became The Nowhere Man.

    Buy a Bullet

    At a Palo Alto Coffeeshop. Some guy who is mentioned to have just bought night-vision gear sits a a table when a trio enters: Dot-com success entrepreneur Steve Radack and a woman with his bodyguard. “At the table, the woman says, 'Would you mind getting it to go?‘ and he slides his hand to her wrist and deals it a cruel twist.‘ The guy with the night vision gear is Evan Smoak, once adopted by some man named Jack and trained to be a professional killer – for the government of the United States. Evan did the job until his conscience hit in. He now wants to help those who cannot find help elsewhere. He decides to stay. She will be his first. This 56-pages-short story is only available as an ebook or audio, but you may get it for free. In the timeline of the “Orphan X“ series, it is complementary to the first book, “Orphan X“, in so far as the latter tells about the youth and the present of Evan Smoak, whereas “Buy a Bullet“ tells about how he did first help somebody after he quit the program – so the timeline is sort of in the middle of “Orphan X“. Quite a decent appetizer with an extract from the 'full' "Orphan X" at the end, author Hurwitz promises what he will keep with the “real“ book: fast-paced, page-turning, sometimes pretty detailed as far as the brutality goes, and often really “tech-centered“. I learned how to avoid fingerprints (superglue on your fingertips), obtain the passwords from a WLAN and some more. I always get the impression that most crime story/thriller readers are women, this approach should enthrall guys as well and also satisfy those who care for detail, procedures. For free compensates short with me, the info on the start was helpful. I did already enjoy Orphan X and will now go for "The Nowhere Man“. Appetizer successful!4 stars (well, it DOES remain pretty short). THIS is on the full "Orphan X" https://www.lovelybooks.de/autor/Gregg-Hurwitz/Orphan-X-1234683129-w/rezension/1478688940/1518177854/
