In this latest Orphan X novel, Evan Smoak is on the run from his own organization. The lethal assassin known as the Dark Horse has gone rogue, and now all of America’s most powerful figures are after him.

But before he can face his enemies head-on, Evan must first overcome the demons that have tortured him since childhood. And it won’t be easy; because out in the open world, there are worse dangers than being hunted by ruthless assassins. There are people who will do anything to keep control…and they’ll kill anyone who gets in their way.
