9780340978214: Dead Men's Dust - 1st Edition/1st Printing

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.

Review:

Hilton is more adept at humour than Lee Child ... the series should be electrifying Daily Mail Hilton writes well ... a promising start Guardian Hilton hijacks the reader on page one of this white knuckle terror ride - and doesn't let go. Daily Record The pace of DEAD MEN'S DUST is a scorcher, with the action beginning right from the start and never flagging... As a story character, Joe Hunter takes you in at the deep end and never lets up. Breathtaking. www.shotsmag.co.uk A high-voltage, gripping read ... Fast, ferocious and a thrill a page, this book will have you reading into the wee, small hours. The action is non-stop, the fight scenes authentic and thrilling. The finale in particular is as good as any action scene I've read in recent years. www.crimesquad.com If you're looking out for a new hero with muscle and deadly skills then Joe Hunter is your man. It's the most explosive debut I've read since Lee Child's modern day knight in tarnished armour, Jack Reacher, arrived in Killing Floor... It's breathless, page-ripping stuff - and Hunter will be back. Peterborough Evening Telegraph A dose of pure rocket fuel. Starts fast, gets faster, and doesn't quit right through to the slam bang finale. Dead Men's Dust is as enjoyable a thriller as you will read this year, and I do mean "Thriller!" My ears are still ringing with gunfire! I loved this book. Christopher Reich, author of RULES OF DECEPTION Taut, thrilling, tense - I loved it! Richard Hammond Hard-hitting and fast-paced, I was hooked from start to finish Simon Kernick 'Suffused with testosterone ... very exciting ... I liked Joe Hunter. Zara Husain, Simon Mayo Books Panel Fun, furious... a good read... cracking pace... crisp pacey thriller. Joel Morris, Simon Mayo Books Panel l enjoyed it... classic opening scene... last 1/3 really exciting. I was totally caught-up in it. Boyd Hilton, Simon Mayo Books Panel
