Mother. With each installment of Gregg Hurwitz’ series of novels featuring Orphan X, Evan Smoak, we learn more about this character and his depth and complexity evolves. In the sixth novel titled, Prodigal Son, Evan meets the woman who gave birth to him and gave him up for adoption. All of a sudden, Evan’s orderly world has turned upside down. The action and technology in this novel make for exciting reading, and a reader’s tension remains taut after the last page is read. Fans of the series are those most likely to enjoy this installment, and new readers can enjoy this as a standalone story, then devour the earlier novels to get to know this fascinating protagonist. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Prodigal Son from amazon.com.
