Gregg Hurwitz’s latest novel is “Lone Wolf.” Once a black ops assassin known as Orphan X, Evan Smoak now helps the truly desperate. This time it is a little girl who wants him to find her missing dog. Not his usual mission, but this unlikely tiny job quickly explodes into his biggest mission yet. One that finds him battered between twisted AI technocrat billionaires, a mysterious female assassin who seems a mirror of himself and personal stakes so gut-wrenching he can scarcely make sense of them. “Lone Wolf” is also available digitally in Libby.
