THRILLER REVIEW: Joe Hunter 4: Cut and Run - Matt Hilton

Release Date: 19/08/10


Joe Hunter's devil is Luke Rickard, a killer who has stolen his identity and committed a vicious double murder. His motive? Revenge. His method? A blade. His mission? Kill anyone Hunter holds dear. It is a deadly duel of wits that takes Hunter from the streets of Miami to the squalid barrios of Colombia to the jungle hideaway of a drug baron. And brings him face to face with his past. Revenge is a dish best served cold and Joe needs a cool head if Rickard is not to cut and run. CUT AND RUN - the fourth high-octane adventure for Joe Hunter, the man whose mission is to rid the world of bad guys.


OK, you love Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series, but it feels like such a long wait between books, so what are you going to do?

Well, worry no longer, we’ve just discovered Matt Hilton’s Joe Hunter series. Whilst we’ve dived in on Book 4, we didn’t start with the first title, we didn’t feel alienated, the character, which whilst darker than Reacher felt real and an anti- hero that many readers will really be able to get behind.

Add to this, an author who plays for keeps with a villain with matching skills and the game of cat and mouse that unravels within which when backed with great pace and delicious dialogue leaves the reader in no doubt that this series will be a thriller to enjoy by the seat of your pants.
