Product Description

Review

'Hilton is more adept at humour than Lee Child . . . the series should be electrifying' (Daily Mail 20090522)

'Hilton can undoubtedly write and DEAD MEN'S DUST roars along at a ferocious pace. A promising start to a welcome new series.' (Observer 20090522)

'Hilton writes well . . . a promising start' (Guardian 20090522)

'If you're looking out for a new hero with muscle and deadly skills then Joe Hunter is your man. It's the most explosive debut I've read since Lee Child's modern day knight in tarnished armour, Jack Reacher, arrived in Killing Floor ... It's breathless, page-ripping stuff - and Hunter will be back.' (Peterborough Evening Telegraph 20090522)

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed 3 Jun 2013
By ShaunOK TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This book had one of the most action packed and enjoyable openings I have ever read. I read the first 70 pages, took a five minute break and then ended up reading up to page 207. The characters and stories jump off the page and you really feel as if you are part of the action and the story. I liked Joe Hunter in Dead Men's Dust, I loved him in Judgement and Wrath. I can see Hunter becoming a favourite fictional character of mine.

I enjoyed the story in this book and the action did not let up until the very last page. It really does read like a Hollywood blockbuster and it is incredibly difficult to put it down. I was trying to read this with somebody talking to me and it was really frustrating wanting to tell them to shut up and let me read! It is an excellent book and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I love the way fiction allows authors to push the boundaries - they aren't bound by limits (e.g. money) - after all and situations can often seem unrealistic however all that serves to improve the story for me and I want books like this to be as action packed as possible, and this book is definitely that!

Overall this was a great book, a lot better than Dead Men's Dust - which in itself was a great book - however I think Matt Hilton is an author that will just get better with each book if this one is anything to go by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 3 Oct 2013
By Audrey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used to think Jack Reacher was the best but I've changed my mind. Joe Hunter is fearless, courageous and although morally questionable at times he's a man after my own heart. It is a great wrench to put the book down in order to get some sleep. I am now on Book 7. What on earth shall I do when I have come to the end of the series?

4.0 out of 5 stars good read 22 Nov 2013
By P. Bean
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This reminds me of Lee Child's Jack Reacher character. It's not as good as Lee Child's books, but I've read 2 Joe Hunter books so far and very much enjoyed both. It's fast paced and just a good easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! 17 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that I'm really enjoying this Joe Hunter series.

Judgement and Wrath is a fast-paced exciting story. I like Hunter and Rink, they have depth of character, and Dantalion was a believable enough Villain for me.

It's important to remember that these books are thrillers, and whilst researching to get enough realism in as possible, the author also has to make it exciting for us readers, otherwise they'd be the exact opposite of a thriller!

I read this book quickly as I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed switching from one persons viewpoint to the other, I also enjoy seeing things unfold from Hunters viewpoint, and knowing his thought process.

All in all, a great read. :D

Don't get on the wrong side of JOE HUNTER. He is basically a big boy scout, looking out for the good guys. Always makes enjoyable reading.
