Product Description


The pace rattles along with the intensity of a disgruntled rattlesnake . . . A fantastic tale of "derring do" . . . The prose is Lycra tight and there is more atmosphere than previous novels. The Arizona desert is so well drawn it almost becomes a character itself. (

Sharp and hard hitting . . . Matt doesn't allow himself to get complacent, but continually delves deeper into the psyche of Joe . . . Fast-paced, action-filled and completely addictive, Matt shows his continuing maturity as a writer with an exhilarating ride that still maintains humour and wit. (

A thrill-a-thon book that packs in more action than all three hit Bourne films rolled into one. This is Hilton's fifth Hunter adventure and he's motoring so fast he's coming up on the tail of Lee Child and stellar creation Jack Reacher. . . It's a wham, bam, bone-crunching treat! (Alex Gordon, Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

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.

By joe74
Format:Kindle Edition
Matt is quickly becoming my author of choice. You know a book is good when your wife gets annoyed as you are still reading at 4am, when you have to be up again at 6.30am.

very simnply, if you liked the previous books in this series, you will absolutley love this one.

Up there with any of the Reacher books I have read and I do love my Reacher books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back Joe Hunter 6 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The return of Matt Hilton's two-fisted hero, Joe Hunter, is always one to look forward to - and this time is no exception. His latest escapade is a story that crackles along from start to finish, much like the rest in one of the best series around today. The only problem with a Hilton novel is that you can't put it down. This unfortunately hastens the end, leaving you with a gap to fill until the next instalment. Bring it on soon please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure enjoyment! 19 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are many things that give us humans enjoyment and not the least of these is stimulation of our senses. (Settle down missus, I'm not talking about that). This is what Matt's books do. They grab you and enthrall you. Of course I like this kind of book to start with, so he's on to a winner. But many books do it in waves. There are interesting bits, then dull bits that you read whilst looking forward to another good bit. This book is all good bits! You really do have to fight to put it down to address the basics of life! Hell, in that respect, it's a good diet aid.

I initially thought the story was going to be our hero going in to a bad guys ranch, kicking ass, rescuing the fair maidens and living happily ever after. Even then I was thinking what a good book, but the plot develops further into still familiar territory of a more than worthy adversary for Joe Hunter being drawn to the final showdown, which you are left in no doubt will happen. The ending is really spine tingling.

If you like any kind of a thriller, you'll enjoy this. Money well spent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Fast Read 4 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
No Going Back marks Joe Hunter's seventh adventure - and incidentally my sixth read of the series (not quite sure how I've missed one out but I have somewhere along the line!) - and I have come to depend on one thing, actually strike that, two things - Joe Hunter the action man and an amazing pace - they both go hand in hand. I remember reading Cut and Run way back in August 2010 and recall being blown away by a frenetic pace and found myself immediately comparing Joe Hunter to Lee Child's Jack Reacher, I've never looked back and Hilton is now one of my favourite authors. The characters are of course very different even though they both have similar goals, to right injustice and hurt a few bad guys along the way - there's nothing more satisfying than watching a few villains taken down a peg or two Hunter - or Reacher - style.

In his latest book Hilton continues to impress with another very very quick read. These books are almost impossible to put down and if you're anything like me you'll find yourself thinking just one more chapter before bed and before you know it, and half a book later, you've almost finished the damn thing! Matt Hilton writes in a no-nonsense style with a narrative that just sucks you in to the story and gives you a vested interest in what happens not only to Hunter but the various characters caught up in his travels. Hilton's novels have a certain warmth, a dependability about them, something you can rely on, and one thing is assured - a thoroughly entertaining journey of escapism awaits.

Like many action novels you have to suspend belief and reality somewhat, you don't question how one man can do one thing, survive another and against all odds come out the other end still fighting his way to victory or in some cases defeat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reacher fans reach for this series ! 18 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a great fan of Lee Child (Jack Reacher series) and when first pointed in the direction of this author was not sure if I would be disappointed or not, the case was not. Matt Hiltons hero Joe Hunter is very similar in several ways to Jack Reacher. He is ex-former military operative, ex-CIA agent with plenty of former military friends to help him out in a sticky corner. The stories are similar in style but Matt Hilton's writing style makes them that little bit different, different enough to enjoy and cast aside any comparisons with Lee Child. I have not as yet read this book having only in the last year acquired a Kindle, which I am stocking up ready for my holidays, hence this purchase. I have though read all the preceding books in hardback and paperback and if this comes close to those I will not be able to put it down once I make a start. On experience of the author alone highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good alternative to Lee Child 1 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have now read all 7 Matt Hilton books and await number 8. Yes, Jack Reacher is probably just a slightly better read, but I have consumed all these as well. So now I have two good series to keep me entertained.

3.0 out of 5 stars Joe Hunter is getting boring.
Too much hammering on the fact what a noble guy Joe Hunter is vs not enough action.
If you like Jack Reacher, you are not going to love Joe Hunter - really. Read more
