The Lawless Kind The Ninth Joe Hunter Thriller by Matt Hilton
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Mentor and guide to Joe Hunter, Conrad of the Special Forces Arrowsake, once again calls on him and Asian-American Rington to ‘off the record’ duties. This is his fifth adventure. Joe is sent to do bloody battle with the drug barons of Mexico but actually he is off to rescue a child and its mother. Why is interesting. With plenty of action, action and then even more action, with escapes from dire situations and wonderful descriptive passages, this is splendid stuff. Highly recommended.

If you like Matt Hilton you might also like to read books by Lee Child, Tom Cain and Andrew Grant.

Synopsis

The Lawless Kind The Ninth Joe Hunter Thriller by Matt Hilton

Ex-counterterrorist soldier Joe Hunter has been called to Mexico to bring an end to a cartel that preys on the people they smuggle across the US border. Once the mission's ended, however, Joe's mission leader and mentor, CIA Black Ops director Walter Hayes Conrad, confesses that the bloody mission is not the real reason Joe has been summoned south of the border. For years, Walter has kept the details of his private life - especially his family - secret from everyone, even his closest friends. But disaster has struck: his great-grandson Benjamin has been abducted, kidnapped by Walter's sworn enemy, the leader of one of Mexico's largest drug cartels. Walter will do whatever it takes to get the boy back. And he know Hunter is the man for the job. But there's one complication -- the drug boss just happens to be Benjamin's father.

Reviews

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

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.

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!
