Past Imperfect #1:

Two boys.

One Murder.

Sometimes justice takes more than a lifetime.

Past Imperfect #1 is part of a two book set. Book #1 has a build up of events and characters with resolution to a number of these. However, book #2 is required for resolution to all events, which in total spans 30 years in a major crime investigation.

Book #1 is approx 280 pages and Book #2 approx 360 pages. Both editions are available on Kindle.

A car accident in California, a deadly assault in Provence, and two boys 30 years apart are left battling for their lives.

Dominic Fornier is the detective who finds himself at the heart of the investigation. A simple provincial case that becomes one of the largest and most important in French criminal history.

Fornier’s only hope is to prove the link between the two boys thirty years apart. A compulsive journey through forensic, medical and psychiatric evidence between France, the USA and London; a breathless paper chase of clues from a young boy’s psyche… and a desperate race against time with a killer who will stop at nothing.

Reviews for John Matthews:

John Matthews reviews:

‘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

‘One of the most compelling novels I’ve read… an ambitious and big novel which will keep you enthralled to its last page.’

– Cork Examiner

‘A classy, well-written and unusual thriller.’

– Yorkshire Post

‘Matthews delivers one of the best debut thrillers in years, brave, ambitious and remorselessly entertaining. Past Imperfect is a stormer.’

– Dublin Evening Herald

‘Move over Grisham, your reign is over! Reminiscent of vintage Grisham, but Matthews has his own distinctive style. Strong, believable characters and a plot that grips from page one and won’t let go, twisting and turning its way towards a nail-biting climax – they don’t come much better than this. One of the best and most memorable thrillers I’ve read in years. A winner all the way.’

– Bob Burke. Mystery Readers International.

Distinctively written… all the forceful energy of the best thrillers.

– Kirkus UK.

‘A clever premise for an epic page-turner written with wit, compassion (and) highly evolved characters.

– Daily Telegraph.

‘… A chilling and thrilling novel, one in which real people start to wonder if they are insane, and have to come to terms with a terrifying reality that threatens their own life. Mesmerising.

– Books Monthly
