Short Story Summary: “Buy a Bullet” by Gregg Hurwitz

Genre: Thriller


Evan Smoak has left the Orphan X program and is sitting in a coffee shop on University Avenue getting ready to head back to LA.

Minding his own business, Evan spots a man and a woman entering the shop. The man is holding onto the woman by her bicep, and is treating her roughly.

But, she grins and bears it.

Evan can’t do that.

Evan overhears other customers talking. Apparently, the man holding the woman is Steve Radack….silicon valley dot-com billionaire and quite the asshole (according to the Internet), where Evan finds the name of Radack’s “girlfriend”….Leanne Lattimore, from Kansas City.

Smoak decides she may be his first customer post Orphan X, but he needs to be 100 percent sure…..because….

Death is permanent.

To find out what happens in this short, 16 page story, you can download it on Amazon for $1.99. 🙂

Needless to say…….”The Nowhere Man” is born!
