The electrifying debut of ex-military officer and all-around tough guy Joe Hunter, who is on the trail of his missing and estranged brother . . . and the madman who may have taken him
Joe Hunter solves problems. Or, as he likes to put it, he's "the weapon sent in when all the planning is done and all that's left is the ass kicking." And as a former military operative and ex-CIA agent, he's good at what he does. But when he's told that his brother—with whom he hasn't been on the best of terms—has disappeared, he learns that everything he's faced before is child's play compared to what's coming.
Tubal Cain is a killer—smart, stealthy, and arrogant—but he's also sentimental. His most precious possession is the set of knives he uses, and when one of them (his favorite Bowie) is stolen along a deserted stretch of highway, Cain will stop at nothing to get it back.
Unfortunately for Hunter, the thief is his brother, a man who has been on the run from his own mis-takes but is now in the crosshairs of a seriously deranged man. To find his brother, Hunter must find Cain, and the chase takes all three men on a hair-raising journey across the country to a barren spot in the American Southwest, where bones have become nothing more than dead men's dust.
With its cinematic pacing, nonstop thrills, and strong, charismatic hero, Dead Men's Dust introduces Matt Hilton as a powerful and irresistible new voice in thriller fiction.From the Back Cover:
Former military operative and ex-CIA agent Joe Hunter solves problems. And he's very good at what he does. But now the problem strikes too close to home. Hunter's brother has disappeared after stealing from the wrong man, a seriously deranged thrill killer named Tubal Cain.
Cain is charming, smart, arrogant—a psychopath determined to outdo every American psychopath who's preceded him. He won't stop until the thief is found and appropriately punished—which means Joe's brother will die slowly, horribly, unless Hunter finds him first.
But it's a big country and Cain's ready to kill anyone in his way—even some who aren't. In a barren dead corner of the American Southwest there will be a reckoning, leaving the last man standing covered in blood and . . .
