Published by Orenda and endorsed by both Peter James and Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Matt’s debut novel, Wicked Game, was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey Dagger in 2016, reached #5 in the UK Amazon charts (all books), and #2 in Australia. Amazon UK voted it the highest rated debut novel of 2016. Deadly Game (2017) and now End Game (2018), the final book in the Wicked Game trilogy, also draw on Matt’s experiences and are described as displaying the same raw authenticity as their predecessor.
