Book Nook: Hellbent, by Gregg Hurwitz

In this third volume in the author's "Orphan X" series Evan Smoak is living an undercover existence. He's hiding out because the highly trained assassins of the top secret government Orphan Program are looking for him. As Orphan X, Smoak was once a member of that organization. Now he's vanished and hoping to live a life that is more about performing good deeds instead of committing assassinations.

As "Hellbent" begins his former mentor is being pursued by professional killers. They are planning to kill this man who means so much to Smoak as a father figure with the expectation that in so doing they might force Orphan X to reveal himself and come out of hiding.

If you like reading thrillers with lots of sizzling action and futuristic technology then you might want to check out this series.
