Ex-CIA and Special Ops, Joe Hunter made a lot of enemies during his covert career—but none worse than the powerful man he left for dead in South America. Now, seven years later, someone with Hunter’s face has embarked on a horrific killing spree in Florida. Suddenly, people closely connected to the former military operative-turned-problem solver are dying—and when two cops who stop him for questioning are taken out by a sniper’s bullets, Hunter finds himself on the run from the legitimate author-ities . . . and a killer’s vengeance.
With nowhere to hide except in the coldblooded mercenary world of wetwork specialists, Hunter knows he faces a blood storm unlike any he’s encountered before—one that will force him to confront the damning shadows of his past as he fights, tooth and nail, for survival . . . and payback.
“Hunter is one of the most exciting new tough guys to come along in years.”

When speaking about author Matt Hilton’s former Special Forces operative hero Joe Hunter, Booklist says, “Lee Child’s Jack Reacher could have some worthy competition.” And not only Child’s readers, but dedicated fans of Jeffery Deaver, Robert Crais, John Sandford, Andrew Vachss, and Michael Connelly are going to love Hunter and his ways. Cut and Run is the fourth electrifying thriller to feature Hilton’s tough as nails “problem solver,” as an assassin with Hunter’s face launches a terrifying murder spree intended to frame his adversary—forcing Hunter to run from the pursuing law and his vengeful adversary alike, with no one to turn to for help and nowhere to hide. Cut and Run is non-stop excitement and Matt Hilton is well on his way to becoming a major force in thriller fiction.
