'Matthews maintains the suspense... an engrossing odyssey into the seamy side of a world that is so near, yet sometimes seems so far. Compulsive reading.' --The Times
From the Author
Past Imperfect became something of a landmark bestseller in Europe, selling over 500,000 copies and in 2007 was included in a list of top ten all-time best legal thrillers in The Times (London). Notably, it was one of only two books by British authors in that list - the rest were all American. Stylistically, think in terms of John Grisham meets Stephen King - IOW, a legal/crime thriller with a difference.
For the last few years, all of my past titles have been available on Kindle to a US audience for the first time, with at one point Past Imperfect - along with Ascension Day - getting in the top ten bestsellers on Kindle. I would like to thank various other Kindle authors for their input and guidance along the way: Joe Konrath, Barry Eisler, Rebecca Forster and Scott Pratt.
