How do you catch a man who is never the same man twice? That is the question posed in The Ninth Orphan, a highly-rated international thriller novel... An orphan grows up to become an assassin for a highly secretive organization. When he tries to break free and live a normal life, he is hunted by his mentor and father figure, and by a female orphan he spent his childhood with. On the run, the mysterious man's life becomes entwined with his beautiful French-African hostage and a shocking past riddled with the darkest of conspiracies is revealed. Fast-paced, totally fresh and original, filled with deep and complex characters, The Ninth Orphan is a controversial, high-octane thriller with an edge. Merging fact with fiction, it illuminates shadow organizations rumored to exist in the real world. Tackling genetic selection, mind control, secret societies and a chase around the globe, The Ninth Orphan also has a poignant, romantic sub-plot. The story contains the kind of intimate character portraits usually associated with psychological novels. Written by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan (authors of The Orphan Factory and Fiji: A Novel), The Ninth Orphan is Book #1 in The Orphan Trilogy. The unique thriller series continues with the recent publication of Book #2, a prequel titled The Orphan Factory. The sequel and final book in the trilogy, The Orphan Uprising, will be published by Sterling Gate Books in 2013. A feature film adaptation of The Ninth Orphan is also currently being developed.
