Boy Nobody

Allen Zadoff

Zadoff (Since You Left Me, 2012) shines in this fast-paced thriller featuring 16-year-old "Boy Nobody," an unnamed Jason Bourne-like assassin. Since the age of 12, he's been under the control of a shadowy government organization known as "The Program,” which uses children as hired killers. However, things get complicated when he's ordered to take out the mayor of New York City because he’s immediately attracted to Sam, the mayor's gorgeous daughter. He even considers sabotaging the mission and begins to question the secretive Program because his target reminds him of the normal life he craves.
