BONUS – Authenticity in Crime Fiction – Matt Johnson – The Epilogue

The Epilogue – our extra ‘quick-hit’ of chat, featuring a bonus question not included in our main guest interviews. Today it’s Thriller author, Matt Johnson

In the late 70’s, Matt served as a soldier from and throughout the 80’s and 90’s he was a police officer with the Met. His debut novel Wicked Game – a crime thriller – was published by Orenda Books in March 2016, with the sequel Deadly Game, appearing in March this year. Wicked Game was listed for the CWA John Creasey Dagger award, has topped the Amazon and WH Smith KOBO charts in several categories and at the end of 2016 was listed by Amazon UK as the highest-rated ‘rising star’ novel of 2016.
