More About the Author

Matt Hilton quit his career as a police officer with Cumbria Constabulary to pursue his love of writing tight, cinematic American-style thrillers. He is the author of the Joe Hunter thriller series, including 'Dead Men's Dust', 'Judgement and Wrath', 'Slash and Burn','Cut and Run', 'Blood and Ashes', 'Dead Men's Harvest', 'No Going Back' and 'Rules of Honour' with further books due in the series. He also has short stories in a number of collections including 'Even More Tonto Short Stories', 'Holiday of the Dead' (under a pen name), the Mammoth Book of Best British Crime 9, Drunk on the Moon 2, Uncommon Assassins, Brit Grit Too, Off The Record 2, Grand Central Noir, and a Joe Hunter short story has been featured in The Strand Magazine. Joe Hunter also features in eBook originals called 'Six of the Best', 'Dead Fall' and 'Red Stripes'.

In addition Matt has self published two horror/action novels 'Darkest Hour' and 'Dominion', a collection of his short stories 'One Twisted Voice - traversing genres', and collected, edited and contributed to ACTION: Pulse Pounding Tales Volumes 1 and 2.

Matt is a high ranking martial artist, and in his day fought in the fledgling MMA scene in the UK, and was Northern Ju-Jitsu Champion 2000. He has been a cop, a detective and a private security specialist, all of which lend an authenticity to the action scenes in his books.

He has been writing since he was a small child, and is also an avid reader of crime, horror and thriller books, all of which inspire his writing style. Although seen as crime thrillers, Matt's Joe Hunter series combine elements from all of those genres, so is slightly different in flavour than many others in the same category. He is a huge fan of the pulp masters, and hopes to emulate their fast pace and derring do. Matt is the first to say that his books will never win a literary prize, but they're not intended to: they're there for pure entertainment.

Saying that Matt's first novel, Dead Men's Dust, was shortlisted for Debut Thriller of the Year 2009 by the International Thriller Writers' Organisation (ITW) and was named as a Daily Telegraph Thriller of the Year 2009, and in 2013 was a Kindle UK top ten best seller.

His books have been translated into German, Italian, Romanian and Bulgarian, and are published throughout the UK (and territories) by Hodder and Stoughton, and in the USA (and territories) by William Morrow and Co.

Matt's Joe Hunter character is an amalgam of many of his influences that include Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan, George G Gillman's Joshua 'Edge' Hedges, and David Morrell's Saul Grisman to name a few. But he's also his own man.

Another superb short story by the master action storyteller! It doesn't matter if you have never read a Joe Hunter story previously (but if you haven't you really should), this stand alone fast paced short story will whet your appetite for more.

It is a very good read and I have no hestitation in recommending it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tough love 3 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A no-holds barred Joe Hunter short which serves as a great intro for anyone who hasn't yet tried Matt Hilton's popular series about a tough, uncompromising ex-special forces man. High on body-count as always, this one has Joe laying it down to a group of murderous thugs in Florida, living up to his reputation of helping those who can't help themselves. A good, solid read with plenty of tension, gritty action and a satisfying conclusion.
