9780061718472: Slash and Burn

Joe Hunter is enjoying some much needed r & r when a young woman approaches him to help find her missing sister. Kate Piers knows about Joe from her dead brother Jake, Hunter's former comrade in arms, and for that reason alone he feels obliged to help. The fact that Kate is very attractive doesn't hurt.

Together they go to Imogen's Kentucky home where they are immediately attacked by a bunch of thugs, acting on behalf of local businessman Robert Huffman. Huffman is outwardly respectable but the psychotic twins he uses as his enforcers give the game away: he has links to organised crime and a deadly reputation with a blade. Huffman is also looking for Imogen, and kidnaps Kate to act as bait. Looks like Joe is in trouble again . . .

Review:

If you like the Jack Reacher books, you'll love Hilton's series . . . Action-packed from start to finish ( Heat)

Joe Hunter is fast becoming a serious rival to Jack Reacher in the action stakes . . . SLASH AND BURN is the kind of novel that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you along at breakneck pace before finally throwing you down exhilarated, breathless and screaming for more. The prose is sparse and so tightly wound it is impossible to turn the pages fast enough, making it a definite read-in-one-sitting novel . . . [Hunter] is an excellent character who is developing more and more as Hilton's confidence as an author grows. ( crimesquad.com)

A hell-for-leather tale that spins your head around like a mad fairground Waltzer ride. Eat your heat out, Jason Bourne. ( Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

Matt Hilton delivers another hardcore, action-packed gritfest featuring a cold-blooded killer with a heart of gold. ( Daily Record)

Book Description:

The third action-packed thriller in the compelling series featuring Joe Hunter, rival to Lee Child's Jack Reacher

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 188 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Matt Hilton delivers a thrill a minute. Awesome! --Chris Ryan, author of Who Dares Win Lee Child s Jack Reacher could have some worthy competition. --Booklist Fans of Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Robert Crais, John Sandford, and Michael Connelly have a new hero to root for: author Matt Hilton s former military Special Forces operative-turned-problem solver, Joe Hunter. Slash and Burn is the third electrifying thriller in the Hunter series, as the emotional stakes are raised to the limit when he and his new lady love set out to find her missing sister and run head-first into a maniacal Texas millionaire sadist with shady allegiances, a serious bloodlust, and his own private army. Like Dead Men s Dust and Judgment and Wrath, Hilton s previous Joe Hunter page-turners, Slash and Burn provides action to the nth degree, and powerfully supports the contention of California s Contra Costa Times that, Hunter is one of the most exciting new tough guys to come along in years.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Slash and Burn, Matt Hilton, Joe Hunter uses the skills he perfected with the CIA and in Special Ops to solve problems. But his sojourn in Florida is recreational . . . until a beautiful, desperate woman walks into his life. Kate Piers wants Hunter to help her find her missing sister. But there are several things Hunter doesn't know . . .Like the fact that the sister crossed a very bad man--a millionaire sadist who likes doing the wetwork himself. Or that the maniac has serious connections to the underworld . . . and runs a private army with enough firepower to blow a gaping hole through the heart of Texas. When a violent encounter with a pair of twin killers in the Kentucky hills results in Kate's capture, Hunter realizes there'll be no backing down, no matter how badly the odds are stacked against him. There's a debt to be repaid and vengeance to be had . . . and when his scorched earth campaign is over, there won't be anything left to burn. Bookseller Inventory # B9780061718472
