When ex-soldier Joe Hunter agrees to protect grieving mother, Billie Womack, on behalf of a DEA contact, it’s a pledge he will come to regret. Her husband, Richard, was a thief. In a desperate attempt to escape his pursuers, Richard apparently died in a car crash, along with their daughter, Nicole. But the violent people chasing Richard think he escaped the plunge into the river canyon that killed Nicole: they want him...and the thirty million dollars he stole from them. And they think Billie knows where he is and that Richard will return for the money. Soon Joe and Billie become fugitives, chased by relentless killers. Joe has no idea who he can really trust, but he’ll do everything in his power to save an innocent life. Richard’s fate means nothing to him, but protecting the grieving woman is a no-brainer for Joe Hunter, even if it means taking a bullet meant for her. It’s a price he’ll pay, and come to regret, when he learns that killers shaped on the Devil’s anvil come in unexpected ways. ***Praise for THE DEVIL'S ANVIL*** “There’s plenty of heart-in-the-mouth action, smart dialogue and convincing extras...give me Joe Hunter over Reacher any day.” —Crimereview.co.uk “To sum up, 'The Devil's Anvil' is a fantastic novel which is a welcome addition to an excellent series. 5/5.” —Crimesquad.com “Fast paced, entertaining and very readable the story moves along at a frenetic pace...another great read.” —Milorambles.com

A thrill-a-thon book that packs in more action than all three hit Bourne films rolled into one. This is Hilton's fifth Hunter adventure and he's motoring so fast he's coming up on the tail of Lee Child and stellar creation Jack Reacher. . . It's a wham, bam, bone-crunching treat! * Alex Gordon, Peterborough Evening Telegraph * Sharp and hard hitting . . . Matt doesn't allow himself to get complacent, but continually delves deeper into the psyche of Joe . . . Fast-paced, action-filled and completely addictive, Matt shows his continuing maturity as a writer with an exhilarating ride that still maintains humour and wit. * www.shotsmag.co.uk * The pace rattles along with the intensity of a disgruntled rattlesnake . . . A fantastic tale of "derring do" . . . The prose is Lycra tight and there is more atmosphere than previous novels. The Arizona desert is so well drawn it almost becomes a character itself. * www.crimesquad.com *
