TAMPA, Fla. - April 8, 2016 - PRLog -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that Matt Hilton's latest Joe Hunter thriller, THE DEVIL'S ANVIL, is published this week in trade paperback and ebook formats.

"This is the tenth entry in this series and is just as exciting as the first" said Eric Campbell, publisher of Down & Out Books, "Joe Hunter is the kind of character that really resonates with crime fiction readers."


When ex-soldier Joe Hunter agrees to protect grieving mother, Billie Womack, on behalf of a DEA contact, it's a pledge he will come to regret.

Her husband, Richard, was a thief. In a desperate attempt to escape his pursuers, Richard apparently died in a car crash, along with their daughter, Nicole. But the violent people chasing Richard think he escaped the plunge into the river canyon that killed Nicole: they want him … and the thirty million dollars he stole from them. And they think Billie knows where he is and that Richard will return for the money.

Soon Joe and Billie become fugitives, chased by relentless killers. Joe has no idea who he can really trust, but he'll do everything in his power to save an innocent life. Richard's fate means nothing to him, but protecting the grieving woman is a no-brainer for Joe Hunter, even if it means taking a bullet meant for her.

It's a price he'll pay, and come to regret, when he learns that killers shaped on the Devil's anvil come in unexpected ways.
