The Devil's Anvil is Nigh

The Devil's Anvil - the tenth staggering Joe Hunter thriller - will soon hit the shelves and E-readers far and wide. It's just a little over a fortnight until the official publication date on 4th June 2015. I know some of my readers have been eagerly anticipating Hunter's return, being fifteen months since we last saw him in The Lawless Kind. I hope the wait has been worth it.

Available for pre-order now on Kindle and in hardcover 

The DEVIL'S ANVIL by Matt Hilton

Accepting the task of protecting Billie Womack is a no-brainer for ex-counterterrorist soldier Joe Hunter, but it comes with its own set of complications. 


Billie's husband, Richard, stole thirty million dollars from some violent people. He apparently died in a car crash with Billie's daughter, Nicola, during a desperate attempt to elude his pursuers. But his enemies don't believe him dead. They think he escaped the plunge into the icy river that killed Nicola and has now decided to come back for the money. If he's alive, they believe he'll contact Billie. 



It doesn't take long for the bad guys to arrive at her remote farmhouse. Soon she and Joe are fugitives. Dead or alive, Richard's fate means nothing to Hunter, but he promises to do everything in his power to protect the grieving mother. Even if it means taking a bullet for her, it's a price he'll pay. 



It's a pledge he will come to regret, as he learns that killers are forged on the Devil's anvil.

BLOOD TRACKS - The First in a Brand New Thriller Series from Matt Hilton

Earlier this year I mentioned I was holding off on some good news until all my ducks were in a row, papers signed and the news could be made official. Well, I'm very happy to announce that those lovely people at Severn House Publishers will be publishing a brand new thriller series from me, featuring new characters Tess Grey and Nicolas "Po" Villere. The first in this brand new action-packed series is called BLOOD TRACKS and will be available in the UK in November this year, and in the USA (and rest of the world) next Spring. Joe Hunter fans will love this new series, and hopefully it will garner a new readership too. On the subject of everyone's favourite vigilante, fear not. This is not a departure from Hunter's adventures. Hunter will continue too. So if you enjoy my books, rejoice, because I'll be back to (at least) 2 books a year from here on in.

The Shadows Call to You

http://booksandpals.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/2015-readers-choice.html

Totally unexpected as it was, I recently heard from BIG AL'S BOOKS AND PALS - an excellent review site that concentrates on ebook and indie published books - informing me that my ghost/paranormal thriller 'THE SHADOWS CALL' has been shortlisted for a readers choice award. I'm chuffed to bits at the news, because it is validation of the book I hadn't expected.

Voting is open at Big Al's now through until midnight on March 28th (mountain time USA). Anyone who would like to vote can do so by the link supplied above, where there are some great prizes on offer as incentives to readers. I wish all the nominees luck, and win or lose, I'm still over the moon.

The Devil's Anvil


The Devil's Anvil - Joe Hunter 10 - out 4th June 2015

Accepting the task of protecting Billie Womack is a no-brainer for ex-counterterrorist soldier Joe Hunter, but it comes with its own set of complications.

Billie's husband, Richard, stole thirty million dollars from some violent people. He apparently died in a car crash with Billie's daughter, Nicola, during a desperate attempt to elude his pursuers. But his enemies don't believe him dead. They think he escaped the plunge into the icy river that killed Nicola and has now decided to come back for the money. If he's alive, they believe he'll contact Billie.



After the Red Rain Fell

As well as writing the exploits of Joe Hunter, I also enjoy writing "other" stuff, as my readers probably know. Recently I was asked to contribute to an anthology of "military horror" by editor Geoff Brown of Cohesion Press, and am thoroughly pleased to announce that my short story "After the Red Rain Fell" will be included in the upcoming SNAFU: Survival of the Fittest, alongside some military horror stalwarts  like S.D Perry, Weston Ochse, Jeremy Robinson, Kane Gilmour and Joseph Nassise.

You can check out the full line-up for this highly anticipated collection right here: http://cohesionpress.com/our-books/snafu/snafu-ii-survival-of-the-fittest/

Down And Out Books to publish Joe Hunter in the U.S.


Bestselling British author Matt Hilton and indie-publisher Down & Out Books have joined forces to publish books 7, 8 and 9 in his Joe Hunter thriller series for the first time in the United States.
“No Going Back, Rules of Honor and The Lawless Kind will be released in America this coming January, June and November simultaneously as trade paperbacks and ebooks,” said Eric Campbell, Down & Out Books publisher “Matt’s Joe Hunter series is an outstanding action/adventure ride and I couldn’t be more pleased to have this opportunity to work with him.”
No Going Back, the 7th book in the series, finds Joe Hunter helping Jameson Walker find his daughter and her friend who went missing at a gas station in the Arizona desert. As Joe picks up the girls’ trail, he discovers that other young women have also disappeared in the area, and comes across the brutish Logan family.
Rules of Honor finds Joe trying to prevent his pal Rink from seeking vengeance when his father is brutally murdered because his mother, Yukiko isn’t telling everything she knows. But when there are more vicious deaths — all of them elderly men known to Yukiko — it becomes a matter of honor to uncover the shameful secret that lies behind the murders. Since the killer isn’t playing by the rules, Joe doesn’t care what he breaks to ensure Rink gets his revenge.

In The Lawless Kind, Joe helps bring an end to a Mexican cartel that preys on the people they smuggle across the U.S. border. Once resolved, Joe’s mission leader and mentor admits the mission was not the real reason for Joe to be summoned. His mentor’s great-grandson has been abducted by the leader of one of Mexico’s largest drug cartels. Joe’s mentor, Walter, will do whatever it takes to get the boy back. And he knows Joe is the man for the job.
Matt Hilton, who was born in Scotland and was raised and lives in England, quit his career as a police officer to pursue writing as his full-time vocation. His first Joe Hunter thriller was published in 2009 and was short-listed for the ITW Debut Thriller Award. There are currently ten Joe Hunter books in the series and he sees no end in sight. “I enjoy cinematic American-style thrillers, and Joe Hunter fits the tradition of such strong, determined avengers as Lee Child’s Jack Reacher and Robert Crais’ Joe Pike.”
Down & Out Books, an indie-publisher based in Tampa, FL has been serving up the best crime fiction since 2011.
