From Booklist

Joe Hunter, one-time scourge of terrorists turned freelance knight errant, accepts what appears to be a simple mission: rescue young Marianne Dean from Bradley Jorgenson, her abusive lover, who is heir to a pharmaceutical fortune. Hunter goes to Miami to do just that and finds that the young couple is the target of a deranged assassin who fancies himself Dantalion, an angel cast out of heaven and a “Great Duke of Hell.” Hunter thwarts Dantalion’s first two attempts, setting up a mano-a-mano confrontation with the wraithlike killer in the swamps near Lake Okeechobee. Although Hilton’s gun battles, car chases, and explosions are reliably entertaining, his greatest talent lies in creating over-the-top villains. Dantalion is as bizarre and monomaniacal as Tubal Cain, the serial killer from Dead Men’s Dust(2009) whose goal was to eclipse Ted Bundy as America’s worst. Plotting and dialogue remain works in progress, but if it’s straight-shooting machismo readers are after, Hilton and Joe Hunter fill the bill. --Thomas Gaughan


Hilton is more adept at humour than Lee Child ... the series should be electrifying Daily Mail Hilton can undoubtedly write and DEAD MEN'S DUST roars along at a ferocious pace. A promising start to a welcome new series. Observer Hilton writes well ... a promising start Guardian If you're looking out for a new hero with muscle and deadly skills then Joe Hunter is your man. It's the most explosive debut I've read since Lee Child's modern day knight in tarnished armour, Jack Reacher, arrived in Killing Floor ... It's breathless, page-ripping stuff - and Hunter will be back. Peterborough Evening Telegraph --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Matt Hilton's new character, Joe Hunter, a former Special Forces operative who is now a private operative for those in need, burst onto the scene in his electrifying debut novel, "Dead Man's Dust". "Judgment And Wrath" confirms that Hunter is a character that will be around a long while and one that should appeal to all Jack Reacher fans. While preferring the addictive nature of the first Hunter book, "Judgment and Wrath" is still a strong sequel that indicates Hunter will get better abd better as Matt Hilton hones and fine tunes his fine writing skills.

Joe Hunter is an appealing character based on his back story, his martial arts and combat skills, his personally honed philosophy of how to treat bad guys, and his intuitive/analytical talents. Watching Hunter's back and helping with his cases are his two former military colleagues, Jared "Rink" Rington and, to a lesser extent, Harvey Lucas. In "Judgment And Wrath", Hunter is paid to find and return Richard Dean's 17 year-old daughter Marianne who has run away with her boyfriend, Bradley Jorgenson, the scion of a mega-wealthy family deep into the financial pockets of the military due to weapons and vaccine development. Dean implies she is the victim of abuse and he wants Hunter to take extreme measures to keep them apart.

Hunter quickly determines something is amiss as Marianne and Bradley seem deeply in love and she has no intention of leaving him. Joe fortuitously interrupts a deranged contract killer named Dantalion who has been sent by an unknown party to kill Bradley and Marianne. Dantalion is one of those love-to-hate incredibly viscious villains who believes he is an invincible fallen angel.

Before I tell you how much I enjoyed JUDGMENT AND WRATH, I am going to attempt to correct a minor misconception about Joe Hunter, Matt Hilton's primary protagonist. Contrary to what you may have read elsewhere, Hunter is not a clone of the worthy Jack Reacher, Lee Child's creation. While Hunter is possessed with a skill set similar to Reacher's, the two men are very different in a number of ways. Reacher operates off the books and is a nomad, moving from place to place without attachments. Hunter works with a team and has a change of clothes at the ready; while he doesn't exactly advertise his services as a problem fixer, he's not really a shadow figure, either. I mention this only because much has been discussed of the characters' similarities; they are different, each very capable of standing on their terms.

Which brings us to that portion of the program where we discuss Hunter and JUDGMENT AND WRATH, Hilton's second Hunter novel, on their own merits. Hunter is an interesting character, blessed with a glib tongue and an intelligence of high enough range to make him one of the more dangerous creatures in the brush. He also knows when to ask for help, which is there in the form of his pal and business partner Jared "Rink" Rington, who has been to a rodeo or two in his time as well.

JUDGMENT AND WRATH gets rolling when Hunter is retained for a retrieval job by a man named Richard Dean. Actually, that's not entirely accurate. While it's true that Dean seeks Hunter's help in finding his adult daughter, Marianne, and returning her to him, he also hints that he wants Bradley Jorgenson, Marianne's millionaire boyfriend, singing in the choir invisible as well.

This is the second book in the Joe Hunter series and it is great! Plenty of action and thrill to keep you turning the pages and the storyline is tight and suspenseful. Joe Hunter is one badass and he delivers with a punch! The storyline is good and sometimes you just don't know who the actual villain is and it is revealed in a very different way. If you like your books action packed, with plenty of thrills and things that will keep you guessing what will happen next, then this book is for you! I highly recommend this book to anyone.

Format: Hardcover
Concerned and fuming Richard Dean hires Florida private investigators, former Special Forces operative Joe Hunter and Jared "Rink" Rington, to extract his seventeen year old daughter Marianne from Miami playboy millionaire Bradley Jorgenson. Richard shows the two sleuths a police photo taken of Marianne after allegedly Bradley beat the crap out of her.

Hunter and Rink figure the case will be a cinch as they assume the wealthy Jorgenson will be a typical bully and run from them. However, the simple snatch and rescue proves convoluted when someone hires experienced hit man Jean-Paul "Dantalion" St. Pierre to kill Marianne and Bradley and the detectives find the teen happy with no signs of abuse.

The second Hunter-Rink investigation (see Dead Men's Dust) is a terrific but overly knotty mystery as too much goes on especially with the additional denouements. Still, Judgment and Wrath is filled with plenty of action as the lead duo finds nothing is what they expected as Bradley and Marianne seem like a nice loving couple and the professional killer quite adept. Readers will enjoy this exciting South Floridian thriller as Matt Hilton keeps the heat on his heroes.
