Joe Hunter is giving Jack Reacher a run for his money

Joe Hunter vs 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.

Matt Hilton delivers a thrill a minute. Awesome! — Chris Ryan
From start to finish CUT AND RUN gripped me like a vice on steroids . . . Each set piece scene is carefully crafted and utterly believable due to the precise prose of an author who is growing in stature with every paragraph. CUT AND RUN is Hilton's fourth and best novel to date. While he has only been on bookshelves since May 2009 he is fast becoming a staple of the crime thriller action genre. — crimesquad.com on CUT AND RUN
