Theres a debt to be repaid and vengeance to be had . . . and when his scorched earth campaign is over, there wont be anything left to burn.
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 high-octane Joe Hunter thriller series, including his most recent novel 'The Lawless Kind', published in January 2014 by Hodder and Stoughton. His next book 'The Devil's Anvil' - Joe Hunter 10 - will be published June 2015. His first book, Dead Men's Dust, was shortlisted for the International Thriller Writers' Debut Book of 2009 Award, and was a Sunday Times bestseller, also being named as a 'thriller of the year 2009' by The Daily Telegraph. The Joe Hunter series is widely published by Hodder and Stoughton in UK territories, and by William Morrow and Company in the USA, and have been translated into German, Italian, Romanian and Bulgarian. Matt is a high-ranking martial artist and has been a detective and private security specialist, all of which lend an authenticity to the action scenes in his books. He was also editor-in-chief and thriller guy over at the award winning e-zine Thrillers, killers 'n' Chillers, and has also published various horror novels.
