Boy Nobody

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Orchard Books

Boy Nobody is a teenage assassin employed by a government organisation, The Program. He turns up somewhere, blends in, kills his target and moves on to the next assignment. His mission is everything: he feels no emotion and doesn’t question his actions.

When he is assigned to kill the mayor of New York City and befriend his daughter, things change. He discovers he does have feelings -  and slowly, distant memories of a past life begin to emerge…

This is a brilliant, fast paced thriller, told in a blunt narrative style which perfectly conveys Boy Nobody’s mindset, devoid of all emotion. Clever and well-written, this is a thought-provoking and exciting page-turner.
