Sometimes justice takes more than a lifetime.
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.
‘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.’
‘Impressive… strong characterization and a relentless race against time to avert the worst carry the reader along the thick pages of this psychological and legal thriller with a difference.’
‘Intriguing thriller (with a) …dogged and sexy French detective. Treat yourself.’
‘One of the most compelling novels I’ve read… an ambitious and big novel which will keep you enthralled to its last page.’
‘A classy, well-written and unusual thriller.’
Dublin Evening Herald
‘Matthews delivers one of the best debut thrillers in years, brave, ambitious and remorselessly entertaining. Past Imperfect is a stormer.’
