In the UK, 'CUT AND RUN' the fourth high-octane Joe Hunter thriller is released today in paperback.
Many of my readers here have already caught Joe's fight against the misogynistic pro-killer, Luke Rickard, but if you haven't, don't worry, there'll be no spoilers here.
Well, maybe a little one. In CUT AND RUN Joe's past came back to haunt him BIG STYLE, and the same can be said for the next book in the series - BLOOD AND ASHES - albeit in a very different way.
Those of you eagerly waiting to get your hands on a copy of BLOOD AND ASHES the good news is that you've only a little under a month to wait. The fifth Joe Hunter book, published by Hodder and Stoughton, will be released in hardback on 3rd February 2011.
Here's the blurb:
Brooke Reynolds died in a car crash. Tragic accident, the police say. But her father Don Griffiths knows otherwise. And he wants Joe Hunter to find the men responsible.
Joe is not convinced – until he is attacked by two troublemakers, and Don's other daughter is also threatened. Looks like more than coincidence. And sure enough, the entire family is soon under siege with only Joe to protect them. The ensuing blood bath is only the beginning of a trail of death that leads right to the heart of a racist conspiracy.
White supremacists want to hold the government to ransom; and they have got hold of a dirty bomb to add weight to their case.
Joe is on countdown: can he stop the plotters before they reduce the free world to ashes?
And here's the cover to watch out for:
