The Harvestman is back!

The Harvestman is back! And determined to wreak revenge on Joe Hunter.

When Rink is ambushed by a team of highly skilled killers, Joe is pretty sure his friend is being used as bait. And the intended prey is Hunter himself.

Joe has to go 'off radar' to rescue his friend. Their deadly game of cat and mouse reaches its climax on the rusty hulk of The Queen Sofia - a container ship used by human traffickers - moored off the North Carolina coast where Joe's ex-sister-in-law is being held hostage.

Against overwhelming odds, and amid a ferocious storm, Joe comes face to face with his old enemy Tubal Cain.

Another sure, sharp thriller from the pen of Hilton. Hunter crosses swords with his old adversary, Tubal Cain . . . and it will get messy. — www.crimesquad.com
As ever, the book proceeds as high speed through a series of increasingly explosive scenes with Hunter displaying his usual inventiveness in getting out of a wide variety of tight spots. Hilton's action scenes are his strongest suit and he uses them to very good advantage in this book. — reviewingtheevidence.com

Praise for DEAD MEN'S DUST:
'Hilton is more adept at humour than Lee Child . . . the series should be electrifying'
