Matt Hilton


Matt Hilton made the news in 2008 when Hodder & Stoughton signed him up for a five-book series featuring vigilante crime fighter Joe Hunter. His debut thriller DEAD MEN'S DUST was published in May 2009, and the second in the series, JUDGEMENT AND WRATH, will be published in October 2009. A former police officer and security expert, Matt Hilton has experienced countless fights, arrests and high tension situations. This gives a impressive level of authenticity to the action sequences in his books. He is also a high ranking Martial Artist and currently holds the rank of 4th Dan in the exacting combat art of Kempo JuJitsu. He lives in Wigton, Cumbria with his wife and son.
