John Matthews is a leading British thriller writer. His books span genres of crime, action, mystery and legal-thriller and include: Basikasingo, Crescents of the Moon, Past Imperfect, The Last Witness, The Second Amendment, Ascension Day, The Shadow Chaser and The Prophet.
They have been translated into 12 languages with total sales of 1.2 million. In 2007, Past Imperfect was included in a top ten all-time best legal thrillers list in The Times. He was one of only two British authors in the list.
Personal note: I've been a published author now for almost 30 years (on and off). There was a 12 year hiatus between my first two published books and my next, most successful book, Past Imperfect. Meanwhile, I filled in as a war correspondent, journalist and editor.
