Dead Men's Dust

The first Joe Hunter thriller is a good read. Joe is a former Special Forces soldier who has worked 14 years as a counterterrorism agent. The book has the necessary ingredients that make a good thriller, but it did not excite me as much as Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. The plot is fast-moving. Joe is on the lookout for his missing brother and he does it to help his sister-in-law. In so doing he is up against “The Harvestman,” a crazy serial killer. I like Joe’s character and decided to read the second book, Judgment and Wrath, to see how the character will develop.
