Review: Judgment and Wrath by Matt Hilton


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. 

I had never read any of Matt's books before. When I read the synopsis of this book, I knew I had to have it. Judgment and Wrath is the perfect book for an action-junkie like myself. Joe is one of my favorite heroes and now I need to get my hands on the rest of the series.

  5. (Gosh - Bethie said exactly what I was going to say!) I'll be on the lookout for Dead Men's Dust (as well as Judgment & Wrath if I don't win a copy). I enjoy these kinds of action books and am always on the lookout for good authors who are new to me.
