JUDGMENT AND WRATH: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
JUDGMENT AND WRATH

BY MATT HILTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Matt Hilton quit his career as a police officer with Cumbria Constabulary in order to pursue his love of writing tight, cinematic American-style thrillers. He is the author of the Joe Hunter thriller series. His first novel, Dead Men’s Dust, is due to be released in May 2009 by William Morrow (HarperCollins) in the United States and with Hodder and Stoughton in the U.K. Dead Men’s Dust is currently being translated into four foreign languages. Further books in the Joe Hunter series will follow.

Hilton is married and lives in Cumbria, England. He is a high ranking martial artist and has been a police officer and private security specialist, all of which lend an authenticity to the action scenes in his books.

PRAISE FOR "JUDGMENT AND WRATH":

“Hilton is a sparkling new crime fiction talent.”

—Peter James, author of Looking Good Dead


“Lee Child’s Jack Reacher could have some worthy competition.”

Booklist


Following the success of his explosive debut thriller Dead Men’s Dust (“A dose of pure rocket fuel,” —Christopher Reich), author Matt Hilton delivers BIG once again with Judgment & Wrath. Ex-military operative-turned-problem solver for hire Joe Hunter is back—and this time he finds himself the prey of a relentless manhunter and targeted for death after rescuing a young couple from the ruthless assassin. Hilton’s Judgment & Wrath starts fast and keeps accelerating—and fans of Lee Child, Robert Crais, and Michael Connelly will discover they’ve got a new author and a new hero to eagerly follow into the dangerous shadows.

One of the reasons I'd like to read this is since he has been a police officer and is a high ranking martial artist, it lends to an authenticity of the book.

Steve Capell said...

First and foremost I am hooked on Jack Reacher novels and the statement on the top of cover, "Lee Child's Jack Reacher could have some worthy competition" intrigues me! I may have a new series of books that I will be following. I have found that authors that pursue writing in the field that they have worked in add a great deal of depth in their writing and since this author use to be a police officer that also intrigues me. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway.

This thriller is exciting and puzzling from the beginning. Marianne's father claims that her new husband is abusive and deranged but Marianne claims that she is not. This seems typical of an abusive relationship to me so I would be interested in reading this book.

I think it will be an interesting read just because it sounds like the "good guy" isn't going to end up with the girl this time. It sounds like he is to save the couple.
