My Review of Dark Horse by Gregg Hurwitz

I think we have been spoilt up until now.

Absolutely loved the early Nowhere Man and Orphan X books, loved Mia and Peter, loved the introduction of characters like Joey but was slightly disappointed by Prodigal Son and even more so by Dark Horse.

Is Evan becoming too much of a super hero with superpowers as he is virtually indestructible and getting more and more far fetched.

Didn’t like any of the other characters in the book too.

Just hope Evan stays in Castle Heights more, we have more Mia, Peter, Joey, Dog and the Castle Heights residents and less ultra baddy drug cartels in the next books.

Publishers Description of Dark Horse by Gregg Hurwitz

The electrifying new adventure in the Sunday Times bestselling series – in which Orphan X faces his most challenging mission ever . . .

‘A stellar series, and the stories get better with each instalment’ DAILY MAIL

Evan Smoak: former off-the-books assassin – code name Orphan X. His world is divided into those who deserve his help and those who’ve brought his singular brand of justice upon themselves.

A desperate father reaches out. His teenage daughter Anjelina has been kidnapped by a brutal criminal cartel and spirited over the border into Mexico. And while money is no object, Evan soon realises that his prospective client’s past is as clouded and compromised as his own.

If Evan is going to put his life on the line to rescue Anjelina, he must first decide whether he can act on behalf of a bad man. And even then, up against the men who are holding his daughter, there will be no guarantee of success . . .

‘Gregg Hurwitz has outdone himself with Dark Horse. Readers will get whiplash . . . The action strikes like lightning’ Luis Urrea, Pulitzer finalist for The Devil’s Highway
