Sixth time out for Joe Hunter, and while this isn't the best outing it wont stop me getting the next one. Hunter isn't quite Jack Reacher though and tries to make up for this by being super human on the fighting skills side - and in this storyline (without spoiling the story) there are a couple of situations that Hunter gets through that go way past the even the over optimistic. Come on Matt, I know Hunter is good but I half expect him in the next book to personally catch an IED, throw it back and come out unscathed. A couple of needless killings too in this one. He has enough reasons to go after the bad guys without every couple of chapters another 'innocent' getting killed and its getting a bit annoying to be honest.

Format: Hardcover
This sixth adventure in the popular Joe Hunter series is an action-packed thrill ride from start to finish and author Hilton holds the pedal to the metal on practically every page.

Hunter, former military man and agent for the mysterious counter-terrorism outfit Arrosave, once again finds himself pitted against Tubal Cain--a vicious serial killer also known as the Harvestman due to his quirky little habit of "harvesting" bones and other souvenirs from his victims. What makes their clash all the more unnerving this time around is the fact that Hunter thought he had killed Cain a number of years ago (as related in DEAD MEN'S DUST, the first entry in the series). When Cain escapes from the ultra-maximum security prison where the CIA had been holding him for mysterious reasons known only to them, the Harvestman is hell bent of getting revenge against Hunter and also wiping out Joe's brother John, who is in Witness Protection waiting to testify against the crime boss who helped spring Cain.

The plot is marvelously complex, with numerous back stories and ulterior motives all interwoven around the central thrust of events building steadily toward the inevitable clash between Hunter and Cain. Some of the action strains real-life credibility and Hunter's straight-ahead-at-all-costs method of doing things is borderline reckless to say the least ... but, ultimately, that is part of the fun. Hunter is a larger-than-life hero made to overcome larger-than-life challenges. And Tubal Cain is a cunning, well-realized, thoroughly despicable villain who makes a very worthy adversary.

The cutting back and forth between first- and third-person narrative has become somewhat common in thrillers these days and in several instances I, for one, have found it unnecessary and annoying.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have no idea why Matt Hilton is not a household name in the United States, especially among fans of thrillers. His novels, particularly those in his Joe Hunter series, start off strong and keep chugging. There simply isn’t a good place to stop reading, other than when you hit the words “The End.” And Hilton is the real deal, possessing a background in law enforcement and private security as well as extensive expertise in the martial arts. However, the most important element of his literary endeavors is that the guy can tell a story. While I’ve never met Hilton, I have the impression that he could keep an entire tavern enthralled for nights on end, spinning yarns without repeating himself even once.

"DEAD MEN’S HARVEST is impeccably plotted and perfectly paced. Two additional books in the series have already been published in Hilton’s native England, and hopefully we will catch up on this side of the ocean in short order."

The foregoing notwithstanding, it’s been a little difficult to obtain some of Hilton’s more recent works, a situation that hopefully has been sorted out for the foreseeable future and beyond. Which brings us to DEAD MEN’S HARVEST, the latest and best (in the U.S.) of the Hunter novels. While these books do build upon themselves, Hilton does a fantastic job of balancing the need to bring newcomers up to snuff on what has gone before while keeping things moving for those who have been along for the wild ride from the beginning. Accordingly, if you are new to the series and things initially seem confusing, hang in there for just a moment or two, and your patience will be rewarded.

Hunter is an extremely capable character, a former counterterrorism operative who now is able to pick and choose the matters in which he becomes involved.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a dedicated reader it is a thrill, yes, a thrill, to find a new author whose books grab you and you end up going back and buying everything they've written before you discovered him/her.

I read Mr. Hilton's Blood and Ashes a few days ago and was so grateful I had this book to read next. And before I leave this website I will be ordering every other book he's written.

So many reviewers painstakingly describe the plot - as does the publisher - so I've stopped doing that in my reviews. What I like to write about is how well the story is written, the pulse of the plot, and the characters. Mr. Hilton's series is about Joe Hunter (I'm seeing him as Jason Stathan) recently retired from a shadowy government entity but still being asked to perform heroic feats by his former commanders or friends and acquaintances. He's what every hero should be: brave, ethical, patriotic, loyal, clever, and with a gentlemanly kindness toward ladies, the elderly and dogs (I made up the dog part, being a dog lover myself).

Mr. Hilton's stories roll along rapidly, from one breathless moment to another. There are no superfluous words, but it's not too spare, either. It's just right. The characters are also well drawn. They grow and evolve during the story, with bits and pieces revealed as necessary to move the plot along.

I loved this book just as I did the first I read. I hope Mr. Hilton stays up day and night churning out books for me to read. Is it too much to write 1 a week? That will give me time to keep up with my other reading. Well done, Mr. Hilton.

If you like thrilling action, you're like these stories.
