First of all, I have to thank Joe Konrath and Barry Eisler for the inspiration to put my past books on Amazon through Kindle. I have had enormous support and encouragement from readers in the USA over the years that books such as Past Imperfect and Ascension Day should be more widely available to a US audience.
Past Imperfect became something of a landmark bestseller in Europe, selling over 500,000 copies and in 2004 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.
I have also taken Joe Konrath's advice in pricing competitively with all my books - so this gives US readers the opportunity of reading quality crime thrillers with a rich pedigree at a fraction of the normal retail price. It also gives British readers the opportunity of reading the same works on Kindle for the first time. Enjoy.
John Matthews is the author of Basikasingo, Crescents of the Moon, Past Imperfect, The Last Witness, The Second Amendment, The Shadow Chaser, Ascension Day and (under the name of John Kilgallon) The Prophecy.
