Overview

After barely escaping with his life while trying to save his half brother from a deranged killer, former-military-operative-turned-problem-solver Joe Hunter has a new life—and hopefully a quieter one—in Florida. But he's soon approached by a man who wants Hunter to bring his daughter, Marianne, home. He claims that her boyfriend, millionaire Bradley Jorgenson, is a twisted, abusive man, and he hints that Hunter should use whatever force is necessary to rescue the girl. The problem is, when Hunter finds the couple, Marianne appears happy, and Hunter can find no signs that Jorgenson has hurt her.

Things get even more complicated when a crafty contract killer by the name of Dantalion shows up at Jorgenson's exclusive island residence with his sights set on Jorgenson and Marianne. Dantalion has an agenda of his own, and nobody is going to stand in his way. Not even Joe Hunter.

When Hunter steps in and saves the couple, what started as a simple matter of snatch-and-grab turns into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that sets the hunter and the hunted on a grueling chase deep within the Florida swamplands.

In this pulse-pounding follow-up to Dead Men's Dust, the smashing debut that introduced Joe Hunter, Matt Hilton delivers an explosive white-knuckled thrill ride that will have readers gasping for breath all the way to the electrifying conclusion.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Hilton's uneven second thriller featuring ex-Special Forces warrior Joe Hunter and his PI partner, Jared "Rink" Rington (after Dead Men's Dust), a distraught father, Richard Dean, hires the two tough, capable men to extricate his beautiful 17-year-old daughter, Marianne, from the clutches of Miami playboy Bradley Jorgenson. Richard shows Joe and Rink a police photo of Marianne taken after Bradley beat her up at a party at his mansion one night. Complicating what should be a straightforward job is an extremely talented hit man, Jean-Paul St. Pierre (aka Dantalion), who's been hired by a mystery man to kill Marianne and Bradley. Joe effectively goes about his job, but readers may lose patience with the overly complicated plot, the explanations for which keep intruding on the more exciting scenes of mayhem. Still, those awaiting the new Jack Reacher or Doc Ford novel will find this a reasonable substitute. (Aug.)
