And he wants Joe Hunter to find the men responsible. Trouble is, they find Joe first. The ensuing blood bath is only the beginning of a trail of death that leads to the heart of a racist conspiracy.

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 Joe Hunter thriller series, including ‘Dead Men’s Dust’, ‘Judgement and Wrath’, ‘Slash and Burn’ and ‘Cut and Run’, with further books due in the series.
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 has been writing since he was a small child, and is also an avid reader of crime, horror and thriller books, all of which inspire his writing style.
Matt’s first novel, Dead Men’s Dust, has been shortlisted for Debut Thriller of the Year 2009 by the International Thriller Writers’ Organisation (ITW).
His books have been translated into German, Italian, Romanian and Bulgarian, and are published throughout the UK (and territories) by Hodder and Stoughton, and in the USA (and territories) by William Morrow and Co.
