Evan Smoak ist der "Nowhere Man". Ein geflüsterter Name unter Kriminellen, den manche für einen Spuk halten. Er hilft denen, die keinen Ausweg mehr haben. Dies ist seine Art sich seine Menschlichkeit zu erhalten, nachdem er jahrelang unter dem Decknamen "Orphan X" im geheimen Auftrag der US-Regierung getötet hat. Während er einer Jugendlichen hilft, den Fängen eines Mädchenhändlerrings zu entkommen, wird er überwältigt und entführt. Jetzt muss Evan all sein Können aufbringen, um sich selber zu befreien, bevor es zu spät ist ... Denn es gilt weiterhin sein 10. Gebot: Lasse niemals einen Unschuldigen sterben. "Orphan X ist waffenfähiges Thrillermaterial eines modernen Meisters" The Guardian "Spannung, die einen die ganze Nacht nägelkauend wach sein lässt." Harlan Coben "Orphan X ist herausragend. Ein smarter, stylisher, state-of-the-art-Thriller." Washington Post

Spoken about only in whispers, the Nowhere Man can only be reached by the truly desperate, he can —He will do anything to save them. Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man. Taken from a group home at twelve, Evan was raised and trained as part of the Orphan Program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets—i.e. assassins. Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the Program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man. But his new life is interrupted when a surprise attack comes from an unlikely angle and Evan is caught unaware. Captured, drugged, and spirited off to a remote location, he finds himself heavily guarded and cut off from everything he knows. His captors think they have him trapped and helpless in a virtual cage but they don’t know who they’re dealing with—or that they’ve trapped themselves inside that cage with one of the deadliest and most resourceful men on earth. Continuing his electrifying series featuring Evan Smoak, Gregg Hurwitz delivers a blistering, compelling new novel in the series launched with the instant international bestseller, Orphan X.

Mike Wingate, abandoned by his father at four and raised in foster care, is finally living the life he always dreamed of—he's happily married with a precocious 8-year-old daughter, and his construction company is about to finish a "green" housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. But then something from his own past, a past he doesn't even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family. Shady characters begin threatening Mike and, when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike's murky past than in protecting him. Now, with Mike, his wife Annabel and daughter Kat suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike turns to Shep, a dangerous man—and Mike's only true friend— from his childhood days in foster care. Together they will do whatever it takes to protect Mike's family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning, "You're Next."

How one woman turned her life upside down to help those who needed it most - half a world away. In 1997 Linda McCarthy Shum had a stable teaching career and a happy marriage with beloved partner Greg. Living in regional Queensland, Linda was a woman of deep faith with a family of grown children and grand-children on the way. She was 49 and her life was fine. But Linda's life had not always been so settled. Throughout her childhood she had been made to feel unwanted by a mother battling her own troubles. This cold beginning to Linda's life journey, and the sad cruelty she had just read about in a newsletter, would soon bring her life undone. The article spoke of Chinese babies being abandoned and dying because of a lack of human contact. The unwanted children were seen as 'throwaway kids' and armies of them were filling up the orphanages of China. Linda Shum was appalled. A year later, on her first-ever trip overseas, she visited an orphanage filled with sick and dying children, the hidden human aftermath of China's One-Child Policy. For almost two decades, while China busily developed into a wealthy economy, Linda has travelled back and forth from her home, raising money to better care for the orphans. Battling distrusting government officials and a constant lack of funds, Linda has saved countless little lives, while also establishing a school in the orphanage and a foster-care program. Today she is the founder and President of the Chinese Orphans Assistance Team (COAT). Linda's work has given the 'throwaway kids' a brighter future, but her achievements have been hard won. During her twenty-year sojourn against sorrow, Linda has had to overcome her own tragedies, surviving breast cancer and a double mastectomy and later the loss of her husband Greg. Host of ABC-TV's One Plus One, and former China correspondent, Jane Hutcheon was captivated by Linda Shum's story and driven to write a compelling account of a passionate and complex woman who has journeyed into the abandoned heart of the world's most populous nation.

This young readers’ edition of Christina Baker Kline’s #1 New York Times bestselling novel Orphan Train follows a young foster girl who forms an unlikely bond with a ninety-one-year-old woman. Adapted and condensed for a young audience, Orphan Train Girl includes an author’s note and archival photos from the orphan train era. This book is especially perfect for mother/daughter reading groups. Molly Ayer has been in foster care since she was eight years old. Most of the time, Molly knows it’s her attitude that’s the problem, but after being shipped from one family to another, she’s had her fair share of adults treating her like an inconvenience. So when Molly’s forced to help an elderly woman clean out her attic for community service, Molly is wary. Just another adult to treat her like a troublemaker. But from the very moment they meet, Molly realizes that Vivian, a well-off ninety-one-year-old, isn’t like any of the adults she’s encountered before. Vivian asks Molly questions about her life and actually listens when Molly responds. Molly soon sees they have more in common than she thought. Vivian was once an orphan, too—an Irish immigrant to New York City who was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children—and she can understand, better than anyone else, the emotional binds that have been making Molly’s life so hard. Together, they not only clear boxes of past mementos from Vivian’s attic, but forge a path of friendship, forgiveness, and new beginnings for their future.
