Survival Horror says it all...

OUT TODAY! SNAFU: Survival of the Fittest

Includes a tale from yours truly called 'After The Red Rain Fell".




Survival horror says it all. 
Imagine Resident Evil… Silent Hill… with soldiers. 
Straining to make that one clip of rounds last. Making sure not to waste a single bullet. 
Lost in the shadows, low on ammo; only edged weapons; wounded, fighting to survive, the last remnants of the mission team trying to make sense of where they had gone wrong, and how to make it out alive with next-to-no resources. 
Survival horror, where every bullet counts. 
Featuring nearly 100,000 words of military fiction and sci-fi. 
– Jeremy Robinson & Kane Gilmour (Callsign: Deep Blue, Ragnarok, and Omega, all part of the phenomenal Jack Sigler/Chess Team series)

REVIEWS FOR SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST: 
“Of the four volumes thus far, Survival of the Fittest is arguably the 
most cohesive, certainly the most enjoyable for me to read. Every story 
was well-chosen; every author represented by solid, engaging storytelling, 
and every conclusion (even to those stories that are part of 
continuing narratives) inevitable and, at the same time, wonderfully 
surprising.” 
—Dr Michael R. Collings 

“Very enjoyable and well worth reading.” 
—Hellnotes 

“This anthology takes what’s expected from the genre and turns it 
into the strangest, most bad-ass mix of military horror stories in the 
best way possible.”

Follow the "Blood Tracks"

BLOOD TRACKS - the first Tess Grey and Po Villere Thriller - by Matt Hilton

Coming this November from Severn House Publishers

When her local District Attorney offers her a considerable sum of money to track down state witness Crawford Wynne, private investigator Tess Grey is in no position to refuse. Wynne is one of the few men still alive who can help the State nail vicious drug lord Albert Suarez. But Tess is not the only one trying to track Wynne down. Suarez’s psychotic brother Hector has been hunting and butchering anyone who is a danger to his brother.
Tess needs help and there’s only one man she can turn to: Southern renegade ex-con Nicolas Villere, known to all as Po. Po always gets his man, but he has never been teamed with a woman before. Both have their own agenda for taking on this case, and neither fully trusts the other. But of one thing they are sure: if they don’t cover each other’s backs, they are both going to die…

THE DEVIL'S ANVIL - Joe Hunter 10 - 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.

Joe Hunter Hits San Francisco With All Guns Blazing

Those great guys at DOWN AND OUT BOOKS continue to bring Joe Hunter's adventures to the USA, with the release of Joe Hunter 8 - RULES OF HONOR - in both Ebook and paperback on 1st June 2015. This edition is only available to readers in the USA.




When Rink’s father is murdered, Joe Hunter vows to help his friend avenge his brutal death. Rink’s mother Yukiko isn’t talking, her silence governed by the Bushido tradition of giri, or moral obligation. But other people known to Yukiko are also dying, all due to a shameful secret from their past that Hunter must uncover if he hopes to end the murders. To do that rules must be broken, and Hunter doesn’t care what he must break to stop the killer. 

“The action scenes are immaculately described...and even the shades of grey are murkier than ever. An excellent starting point to the dark and dangerous world of Joe Hunter.” 
—crimereview.co.uk 

“A rip-snorting novel which is fast paced, exciting and yet self-aware enough to address its own belief system.” 
—Graham Smith, author of Snatched From Home 

“...Hilton drives pace faster than The Stig...” 
—crimesquad.com 

“...grows at a steady pace and to be honest even though there’s more than enough action and killing to satisfy the most ardent action reader throughout the course of the book it plays second fiddle to the reason for the deaths, something I enjoyed more than any of Matt’s previous books...this for me is a more thoughtful adventure in avengement and plot building, the combination of both helps deliver a more mature action thriller.” 
—milorambles.com 

“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.”

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.
