THRILLER REVIEW: Joe Hunter 7: No Going Back - Matt Hilton

Release Date: 16/02/12


Jameson Walker approaches Joe Hunter when his daughter Jay and her friend Nicole go missing at a gas station in the Arizona desert while on a cross-country trek across the North American interior. He mentions that a robbery/homicide at the gas station as worrying as the girls were due to be in the vicinity at that time. Joe accepts the job of locating the girls, though not at first convinced there's much to worry about. As Joe picks up the girls' trail he discovers that other young women have also disappeared in the area, and comes across the brutish Logan family.


I’ve been a fan of Joe Hunter since my contact at Hodder let me in on this series. They promised action, they promised a guarantee and of course they also promised a character that you could not only associate with but one that “you’d love to have a pint with in your local.” Since starting with Matt way back with book four, its been a series that has not only gone from strength to strength but one that is increasing building the success of the series as the dangers get bigger, the action more epic and of course Joe himself is becoming more cinematic with every appearance.

Add to this top notch action, an author who knows how to direct the reader as well as adding great pace, solid dialogue and backs it all up with some careful twists and overall its still a series that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
