Crime writer Matt Hilton nominated for international award

2nd July 2010

Fledgling crime writer and ex-policeman Matt Hilton has been nominated for a major international crime fiction award.

The writer, whose first novel Dead Men's Dust was released last summer, will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the world's best crime novelists at the International Thriller Writers' Organisation's annual awards in New York.

Hilton's Dead Men's Dust is up against four other writers in the Best First Novel category.

The other shortlisted books are: Warren Fahy's Fragment, Collision of Evil by John J. Le Beau, Dracula: The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt, and Jamie Freveletti's Running From the Devil.

Speaking to the Times & Star, Hilton said: 'It's a huge convention where top writers, publishers and agents from all over the world come together with fans to celebrate thriller writing.'

'To win would be beyond my expectations, but just to be shortlisted is a staggering achievement.'

Other categories being contested at the 2010 Thriller Awards include Best Hard Cover Novel, Best Paperback Original and Best Short Story.
