Book Description

The Harvestman is back! And determined to wreak revenge on Joe Hunter. When Rink is ambushed by a team of highly skilled killers, Joe is pretty sure his friend is being used as bait. And the intended prey is Hunter himself. Joe has to go 'off radar' to rescue his friend. Their deadly game of cat and mouse reaches its climax on the rusty hulk of The Queen Sofia - a container ship used by human traffickers - moored off the North Carolina coast where Joe's ex-sister-in-law is being held hostage. Against overwhelming odds, and amid a ferocious storm, Joe comes face to face with his old enemy Tubal Cain.

    More About the Author

    Matt Hilton quit his career as a police officer with Cumbria Constabulary to pursue his love of writing tight, cinematic American-style thrillers. He is the author of the Joe Hunter thriller series, including 'Dead Men's Dust', 'Judgement and Wrath', 'Slash and Burn','Cut and Run', 'Blood and Ashes', 'Dead Men's Harvest', 'No Going Back', 'Rules of Honour', 'The Lawless Kind' and 'The Devil's Anvil' (June 2015) with further books due in the series. He also has short stories in a number of collections including 'Even More Tonto Short Stories', 'Holiday of the Dead' (under a pen name), the Mammoth Book of Best British Crime 9, Drunk on the Moon 2, Uncommon Assassins, Brit Grit Too, Off The Record 2, Grand Central Noir, Death Toll 2, Blood Bath and a Joe Hunter short story has been featured in The Strand Magazine. Joe Hunter also features in eBook originals called 'Six of the Best', 'Joe Hunter: Instant Justice', 'Dead Fall' and 'Red Stripes'.

    In addition Matt has self published horror/action novels 'Darkest Hour', 'Dominion', 'Preternatural', 'The Shadows Call' and a collection of his short stories 'One Twisted Voice - traversing genres', and collected, edited and contributed to ACTION: Pulse Pounding Tales Volumes 1 and 2. he is also the author of pulp action hero 'Dirk Ramm'.

    Matt is a high ranking martial artist, and in his day fought in the fledgling MMA scene in the UK, and was Northern Ju-Jitsu Champion 2000. He has been a cop, a detective and a private security specialist, all of which lend an authenticity to the action scenes in his books.

    He has been writing since he was a small child, and is also an avid reader of crime, horror and thriller books, all of which inspire his writing style. Although seen as crime thrillers, Matt's Joe Hunter series combine elements from all of those genres, so is slightly different in flavour than many others in the same category. He is a huge fan of the pulp masters, and hopes to emulate their fast pace and derring do. Matt is the first to say that his books will never win a literary prize, but they're not intended to: they're there for pure entertainment.

    Saying that Matt's first novel, Dead Men's Dust, was shortlisted for Debut Thriller of the Year 2009 by the International Thriller Writers' Organisation (ITW) and was named as a Daily Telegraph Thriller of the Year 2009, and in 2013 was a Kindle UK top ten best seller.

    His books have been translated into German, Italian, Romanian and Bulgarian, and are published throughout the UK (and territories) by Hodder and Stoughton, and in the USA (and territories) by William Morrow and Co (books 1 - 6), and by Down and Out Books (books 7 - 9).

    Matt's Joe Hunter character is an amalgam of many of his influences that include Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan, George G Gillman's Joshua 'Edge' Hedges, and David Morrell's Saul Grisman to name a few. But he's also his own man.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best one so far 17 July 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The fourth Joe Hunter book I've read, and definitely the best so far. Dead Men's Harvest is a sequel to the first book in the series and features the return of that book's big bad.

    There's plenty of the standard action man sequences you'd expect, but Hilton really steps it up a gear for the big finish aboard a storm-lashed Russian cargo ship. Unusually for book 6 in a thriller series, there's a genuine sense of peril about the climax. Looking forward to checking out No Going Back next.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A great read if you like fast paced action 8 July 2012
    By Ianski
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I've read all Matt Hilton's books and as long as you suspend a little bit of reality they're a great read, carrying you along at a stonking, difficult to put down pace with a mixture of action and suspense (as key characters are put at risk).

    Compared to other authors mentioned in other reviews:

    - Personally I prefer Matt Hilton to Lee Child's Jack Reacher series as it feels slightly more human. At least Joe Hunter feels pain, seems vulnerable and has some limitations against a superhuman Jack Reacher who never gets hurt and can do almost anything.

    - Andy McNab's more realistic and gritty, but can also be quite depressing as key characters often get killed off at the end (but that's not to say there's not the occassional twist at the end of a Matt Hilton novel). Matt Hilton's got a more feelgood factor, but depends on your preference.

    - None of the above authors compares to Robert Ludlum (Jason Bourne) for me. The Bourne Identity (NOT the film) still ranks as one of my top ten books, but is dated now as it was written ~20 years ago. If you enjoyed the Jason Bourne films though, you'll enjoy Matt Hilton as there's a similar approach.

    This isn't his best book (my favourite was his first novel with Tubal Cain - Dead Men's Dust: The First Joe Hunter Thriller which I can still only rate a four star), but is still a great read and brings Tubal Cain back, but the story doesn't quite match for me and hence the three star.

    Overall there are two types of books for me. Books you own and read several times, getting a little bit more every time (eg. Terry Pratchett) and books you get from the local library and reading once is enough. Matt Hilton is definitely a library book for me.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 24 Mar. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Joe Hunter is great - now a well established operator with a sound array of backup his only fault is he is a little superhuman and I would urge Matt Hilton not to turn him into a Jack Reacher character who is unbelievable by his own indomitability.
    The characters are well written and have become real people and the writing encourages real empathy for them which is both clever and skilful.
    Looking forward to reading the next one !

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another entertaining read from Matt Hilton 5 Jun. 2014
    By P. Bean
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I stumbled on this writer and the Joe Hunter series about a year ago and every book so far has been a fast paced entertaining read. OK the plots are a little far fetched and the scrapes Joe Hunter gets into maybe a little extreme, but the writing makes it almost believable. I've been a Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt fan for a long, long time and more recently a Lee Child, Jack Reacher fan, but Joe Hunter almost make the two of them look like wimps! Ok, maybe not wimps, but the fast paced, unstoppable action just keeps me coming back for more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A clever and unexpected twist 10 Aug. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Yet another great book by Matt Hilton and an unexpected twist from his first book. Good enough to prompt me to re-read all of his books.

    May there be many more to come.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Men's Harvest 29 Oct. 2011
    Another classical Hunter thriller dispatches with the bad guys on his journey to save his brother not knowing that he is on a collision course with his old enemy Tubal Cain. Another action packed read couldn't put it down.

    This book is one of my favourites in the Joe Hunter series. Matt Hilton imbues his main character with all the inhuman elements a character could possibly have. The portrayal of this psychopathic individual is superb. You shudder and hope and pray that you will never meet someone like that in real life. He reminds me of that other character Matt Hilton created in his book Judgement and wrath, one Luke Rickard. That book is also another favourite of mine in the Joe Hunter series. I take my hat off to Matt Hilton. His stories are wonderful. In short he's a great writer.
