Hellbent A Dark Conspiracy. An Innocent Victim Press Reviews

A masterpiece of suspense and thrills . . . Turn off the real world and dive into this amazing start to a new series * Associated Press * In terms of plot, characters, suspense and innovation, Orphan X is outstanding . . . I've always thought that one reason for Tom Clancy's success was the endless detail he provided about military hardware, and that the James Bond novels benefited from the loving attention Ian Fleming devoted to the martinis, expensive cars and gorgeous women he so admired. Hurwitz outdoes both writers . . . Orphan X is a smart, stylish, state-of-the-art thriller. It's also the start of a series, one that might give Lee Child's Jack Reacher books a run for their money * WASHINGTON POST * Bestseller Hurwitz melds non-stop action and high-tech gadgetry with an acute character study in this excellent series opener . . . Evan Smoak is an electrifying character * Publishers Weekly * A new series character to rival Reacher . . . anyone reading Orphan X won't be surprised that a cadre of peers, from Tess Gerritsen to Lee Child, have lined up to praise it * Independent * Orphan X is not good. Orphan X is great. Whatever you like best in a thriller - action, plot, character, suspense - Orphan X has it -- Simon Toyne Orphan X is the most exciting thriller I've read since The Bourne Identity ... A new thriller superstar is born! -- Robert Crais Mind blowing! A perfect mix of Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher -- Lisa Gardner Orphan X is most exciting new series character since Jack Reacher. A page-turning masterpiece of suspense -- Jonathan Kellerman Orphan X is the most gripping, high-octane thriller I've read in a long, long time! -- Tess Gerritsen Orphan X is his best yet - a real celebration of all the strengths Gregg Hurwitz brings to a thriller -- Lee Child Orphan X blows the doors off most thrillers I've read and catapults the readers on a cat-and-mouse that feels like a missile launch. Read this book. You will thank me later -- David Baldacci Praise for Orphan X * - * Hellbent is Gregg Hurwitz firing on all cylinders * Guardian * A serious contender for best thriller of the year * The Real Book Spy * As well-done as the rest of the series and bloody good fun * Kirkus * This is a great novel ... Do not miss this one * Booklist * Nail-biting, twisty thriller . . . [that will] appeal to devotees of Robert Ludlum's Bourne series * Library Journal * If Bond and Bourne had a lovechild, Evan would be that end product. We're treated to a superb combination of suspense, action, and plot twists from cover to cover. * Shots Magazine *
