Just thought that I'd share this review with you all, written by Todd Griffiths, an influential publisher from Hachette Australia.
I'm about twenty pages shy of finishing Dead Men’s Dust and I’m loving it. It’s about a thousand times better than I expected from past dabbles in the genre. Joe is a complex three dimensional character and the way Hilton explores the subtle but crucial differences between a sociopathic killer who has killed many with pleasure and a conscience ridden soldier who has killed even more but with a troubled moral self is nuanced and insightful in a way that belies the brief brutal bursts of “Bourne...” movie violence that punctuate the book. I can’t imagine someone could read a book in this genre after reading this and not find “Dead Men’s Dust” a superior book in every important way.
My whole-hearted thanks go to Todd for his inspiring words.
