Dead Fall - a Joe Hunter exclusive short story

I've recently written my first e-book exclusive short story for the US market, featuring ex-military operative Joe Hunter, and it will be released on 25th October this year.

When the bodies of two friends are found near the penthouse apartment of a known crime boss, Joe Hunter has revenge on his mind. He's never tolerated bullies, but this time it's personal. And no matter how many heads he has to bash to do it, Joe will find his man.

Includes a sneak preview of Blood and Ashes, the exhilarating fifth novel in the Joe Hunter series.

The ebook will also be released for the UK (and rest of the world market via Hodder and Stoughton relatively soon afterwards - although possibly with a different cover). Also watch out for another ebook exclusive Joe hunter short story coming soon called RED STRIPES (more news on that before long).

NO GOING BACK - the seventh Joe Hunter thriller - OUT NOW

NO GOING BACK - the seventh Joe Hunter thriller - is out now in paperback

Jameson Walker approaches Joe Hunter when his daughter Jay and her friend Nicole go missing at a gas station in the Arizona desert while on a cross-country trek across the North American interior. He mentions that a robbery/homicide at the gas station as worrying as the girls were due to be in the vicinity at that time. Joe accepts the job of locating the girls, though not at first convinced there's much to worry about. 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.

'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 )
