Into the Fire opening line: The industrial sliding doors heaved open to a burst of bitter alpine air, a dizzying flurry of snow, and a barrage of hoarse cries.
Evan Smoak wants to be done. He wants one more case, one more person to save. And then he wants his life back. A life that really was never his own. But will this one last save mean the end of his life? And will the truth about who he is finally break the barrier to a relationship he is not quite sure he wants?
Into the Fire
Evan Smoak – Orphan X aka The Nowhere Man – returns in an enthralling fifth adventure.As a boy, Evan Smoak was taken from his foster home and inducted into a top secret Cold War programme. Code-named Orphan X, he was trained to become a lethal weapon, then dispatched around the world to do whatever was required to keep his country safe. When Evan discovered the mission was rotten to the core, he got out using his skills to hide in plain sight while helping those who can’t help themselves.
Each and every one of the Evan Smoak books have been great reads. And this one is no exception. The great thing is you do not have had to have read the previous books to make sense of the latest one. If you are a Jack Reacher fan then you will really enjoy the exploits of Evan Smoak. I can highly recommend this.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
