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.

Yep, if you like Matt's Joe Hunter books then you'll like this. As a chef would say, this is a reduction - in that you get the whole experience but there's less of it and it's more powerful. Of course the price is less too.

There's a bit of a desire in recent times for short books that the otherwise bored traveller can read in their entirity. This works for that. Even the short book is a collection of short stories, so it still works if you have a few changes on your rail journey. The twist in the tail of each story gives you more than enough wncouragement to start the next.

Really the only criticism I can level at this collection of stories is that it ends and I want more!

I guess the main problem is that if you alight from that train and see someone being bullied. Having been that immersed in Joe Hunter, you'd be tempted to intervene, using his particular skill set. So perhaps this book should carry a warning: CAUTION: DO NOT TRY THIS ON YOUR JOURNEY.

But one thing you should try is is this book. It's a bit like Tinkerbell. Small but perfectly formed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Hunter: Six of the Best 30 Jan 2012

If anyone hasn't read any of Matt Hilton's 'Joe Hunter' books then I suggest you should. These short stories will give you a taste of what the character is all about. Broken down into bite size pieces the indomitable Mr Hunter is firm but fair. Without giving too much away each story is excellently written with a balance of sombreness and wit. If you have read the Joe Hunter books before then I implore you to add this novel of short stories to your collection.

I will make this review short and sweet, a bit like these stories :)

I loved the pace, the characters and the style of writing. For those of you who haven't read the Joe Hunter books it gives you an insight into the characters so you know what to expect and for those that you who have, it is more of the same but shorter! 6 good, punchy, short stories.
