Книга жанра: Детективы, Триллеры. Chapter 1. A breeze stirred and the susurration of foliage was like the whispering of lost souls. All sounds indigenous to the Everglades pine lands. Jared ‘Rink’ Rington ignored the natural rhythms of the Florida night, listening instead for the soft footfalls of the men hunting him. There were at least four of them: men with guns. From the cover of a stream bed, Rink spied back to where he’d left his car. The Porsche was a mess

Martin Maxwell was once an agent of the Secret Service. He was also a man consumed by a fury he quenched through brutal acts of violence that earned him the moniker the Harvestman. Joe Hunter made him pay the price for his crimes and the government covered up his true identity, burying him under the name Tubal Cain. But Maxwell survived his near death at Hunter's hands.

The Arkansas mobster screamed all the way down then went deathly silent as he struck the roof of the house. The blood pouring down the steepled roof was an indication of what would be found when Petoskey was retrieved from the wreckage. Setting his mouth in a tight line, Baron reached into his pocket and took out his cellphone. He pressed a speed dial number. The phone rang three times before it was picked up. ‘Bad news, I’m afraid, sir,’ he said into the phone

Dead Men's Harvest is the fifth book I've read from Matt Hilton - the sixth in the long standing series featuring the enigmatic action man Joe Hunter - and although showing signs of ageing disgracefully I see no reason why Hunter should hang up his boots just yet! He still has what it takes to take on the bad guys and does it with such assurance that very few would question his credentials, and if they did he’d soon set them straight! One of the things I've enjoyed over the last year is discovering who Joe Hunter is and what he stands for.

Matt Hilton continues to be a very mediocre writer. He is good enough to read the next book in the series but just barely. He clearly has no experience with weapons or military tactics yet his main character is supposed to have both. A little reading and shooting would go a long way but considering the country he lives in this may be challenging. Most writers get better with time and in this genre after a book or two and sharply worded criticism they start doing a little research. Matt Hilton could be a 4 star writer but it looks like he is destined to become a two star writer.....

The book was brand new at the lowest price I could find!!! I read it and found it to be an excellent read. It had action throughout and I found it very hard to put down!!! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery and action in their books!

As a dedicated reader it is a thrill, yes, a thrill, to find a new author whose books grab you and you end up going back and buying everything they've written before you discovered him/her.

I read Mr. Hilton's Blood and Ashes a few days ago and was so grateful I had this book to read next. And before I leave this website I will be ordering every other book he's written.

So many reviewers painstakingly describe the plot - as does the publisher - so I've stopped doing that in my reviews. What I like to write about is how well the story is written, the pulse of the plot, and the characters. Mr. Hilton's series is about Joe Hunter (I'm seeing him as Jason Stathan) recently retired from a shadowy government entity but still being asked to perform heroic feats by his former commanders or friends and acquaintances. He's what every hero should be: brave, ethical, patriotic, loyal, clever, and with a gentlemanly kindness toward ladies, the elderly and dogs (I made up the dog part, being a dog lover myself).

Mr. Hilton's stories roll along rapidly, from one breathless moment to another. There are no superfluous words, but it's not too spare, either. It's just right. The characters are also well drawn. They grow and evolve during the story, with bits and pieces revealed as necessary to move the plot along.

I loved this book just as I did the first I read. I hope Mr. Hilton stays up day and night churning out books for me to read. Is it too much to write 1 a week? That will give me time to keep up with my other reading. Well done, Mr. Hilton.

If you like thrilling action, you're like these stories.

Dead Man’s Harvest is the sixth novel in this series of action thrillers featuring ex-government undercover agent Joe Hunt. In this one, he is up against a nemesis from an earlier novel, Tubal Cain, aka the Harvestman, an insane super-killer who likes to mutilate his victims for souvenirs --a thumb, a rib, you have it, which he polishes up and keeps to remind him of the fun he’s had. Hunter thought he had killed Cain when they last met but he hadn’t –Hunter’s boss and mentor had put Cain in solitary confinement on the off chance he might be able to use him in the future. Bad decision! Cain escapes and he’s at it again, leaving the dead and dismembered behind him in a trail of blood and guts. At this point it gets complicated, and it would be unfair to spell out what happens or why. Joe hunts Cain. Cain sets up a trap to lure Joe into his lair. Joe fights back. A lot of people die along the way, both good guys and bad guys. The action is extreme but not beyond the bounds of the possible. The characters are a bit cookie cutter but not upsettingly so: Cain is the most fully realized but he is such a dark and menacing character and such an efficient killing machine that it doesn’t seem quite possible that he could exist. But the sketchiness in the characterization –and in the description of Joe’s love interest- doesn’t get in the way of this non-stop action, no-holds-barred action thriller. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down, and that’s all I really wanted from it. (3-1/2 out of 5 *)
I have no idea why Matt Hilton is not a household name in the United States, especially among fans of thrillers. His novels, particularly those in his Joe Hunter series, start off strong and keep chugging. There simply isn’t a good place to stop reading, other than when you hit the words “The End.” And Hilton is the real deal, possessing a background in law enforcement and private security as well as extensive expertise in the martial arts. However, the most important element of his literary endeavors is that the guy can tell a story. While I’ve never met Hilton, I have the impression that he could keep an entire tavern enthralled for nights on end, spinning yarns without repeating himself even once.

"DEAD MEN’S HARVEST is impeccably plotted and perfectly paced. Two additional books in the series have already been published in Hilton’s native England, and hopefully we will catch up on this side of the ocean in short order."

The foregoing notwithstanding, it’s been a little difficult to obtain some of Hilton’s more recent works, a situation that hopefully has been sorted out for the foreseeable future and beyond. Which brings us to DEAD MEN’S HARVEST, the latest and best (in the U.S.) of the Hunter novels. While these books do build upon themselves, Hilton does a fantastic job of balancing the need to bring newcomers up to snuff on what has gone before while keeping things moving for those who have been along for the wild ride from the beginning. Accordingly, if you are new to the series and things initially seem confusing, hang in there for just a moment or two, and your patience will be rewarded.

Hunter is an extremely capable character, a former counterterrorism operative who now is able to pick and choose the matters in which he becomes involved. In DEAD MEN’S DUST, the future comes back to haunt him, literally, in the form of a dangerous and crazed adversary that Hunter already put down once. Martin Maxwell, to put it mildly, is out there. Formerly a Secret Service agent, Maxwell took on the name “Tubal Cain” and earned himself the nickname “The Huntsman.” Hunter has long believed Cain to be dead, having dispatched him by his own hand. What is revealed early on in DEAD MEN'S HARVEST is that the U.S. government saved Cain’s life and incarcerated him in a maximum security prison, hoping to study him in order to determine what causes a human being to become a monster on the order of Cain. However, no one counts on Cain escaping, and when he does, all bets are off.

Hunter is drawn into the search when his old friend and occasional employer, Walter Conrad, becomes the first of many of Cain’s targets. But Hunter’s surprise that Cain is still alive is quickly eclipsed by the revelation that Cain’s ultimate target is John Telfer, Hunter’s half-brother. Kurt Hendrickson, the powerful criminal who aided Cain in his escape, is finally about to go to trial, and Telfer is the key witness against him. Cain, of course, is more than motivated to go after Telfer, figuring that he will begin his extensive plan for revenge against Hunter by first killing his brother and then exacting a slow and painful death upon him. Hunter has a similar course of action planned against Cain.

The result is a pursuit between the two men that puts the allies of both in great danger, even as Hunter himself is unknowingly hamstrung by a series of deceitful actions from an unexpected source. By the conclusion, much has changed, for better or worse, and Hunter will never be quite the same.

DEAD MEN’S HARVEST is impeccably plotted and perfectly paced. Two additional books in the series have already been published in Hilton’s native England, and hopefully we will catch up on this side of the ocean in short order. Those encountering Hilton and Hunter for the first time here will want to peruse his backlist in the meantime to discover the wealth of literary excitement there as well.
