The author of The Hunters serves up 11 sharp slices of Brit Grit for you to sample. Tales that grab you by the throat and don’t let go. Tales that beat you down and do nasty things to you while you’re out cold. Tales that live with you long after you've finished the final page.

A security guard gets more than he bargained for when he pays a visit

Overview

The author of The Hunters serves up 11 sharp slices of Brit Grit for you to sample. Tales that grab you by the throat and don’t let go. Tales that beat you down and do nasty things to you while you’re out cold. Tales that live with you long after you've finished the final page.

A security guard gets more than he bargained for when he pays a visit to The Carpenter’s Arms; two foul-mouthed women cause all manner of mayhem when they suffer from a bout of Bus Rage; a mother’s death brings about a permanent rift between brother and sister in The Short Goodbye; and the Stanton brothers cut a kneecapping, bone-breaking, foul-mouthed swathe through the underworld in The Greatest Show in Town, The Beautiful Game, One Sixteenth and The Fight.

This here's the hard stuff. And you'll take it and like it!

Meet the Author

Martin Stanley was born in Middlesbrough in 1972. He was educated in Teesside and later in Bristol, where he studied graphic design. He began reading at an early age. Although it was horror and science fiction that kindled his love of reading, it was crime fiction that really grabbed his attention. It began with Elmore Leonard, moved on to Jim Thompson and took off with his discovery of James Ellroy and, later, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and Ross MacDonald. He is the author of The Gamblers, a violent crime thriller set in Bristol and The Hunters, the first in the Stanton brothers series of crime thrillers. Martin is currently hard at work on the next thriller in the series The Glasgow Grin. He lives, works and socialises in London.
