A Death Sentence on Your 60th Birthday is Just the Beginning...
It's Hank Reed's birthday. As a citizen of the United Federation of Nations that means a mandatory death sentence simply because he turned sixty years old. Referred to as "retirement," it's one of the desperate steps the government has taken to curb overpopulation. Retirement is a widely accepted fact of life on a dying planet ruled by a tyrannical government. Hank's execution goes ahead as planned but state sponsored euthanasia isn't what it seems. The Reed family learns what really happens to retirees when secrets the UFN keep from the public start to unravel.
This book is intended to be read by adults and may be unsuitable for children under 17. Contains indecent language and descriptions of graphic violence.
How to Buy Property Overseas For Profit and Lifestyle
Inexpensive property…a lower cost of living…better weather…a more laid back lifestyle… it’s easy to see why so many of us are seduced by the idea of buying property overseas.
But what’s the difference between nervous investors who struggle with finding the right properties overseas and successful investors who end up with value-packed investments in lush tropical havens they’re bursting to tell their friends about? It’s certainly not an innate talent, a unique personality or some “secret trick” that’s out of your reach.
No, they’ve just figured out the kind of research they need to be doing when exploring unfamiliar markets. And it’s something you can start tapping into in the next few minutes.
The book gives you a solid roadmap for successful property investing that actually works in foreign markets. It lays out checklists of tasks, step by step guidance and tactics based on over a decade of in-the-trenches experience working in the international real estate sector.
I’ve seen too many buyers assume that local property markets around the world operate in the same way as the market does back home. Yet if you scratch the surface, even a little, you'll often find a very different picture.
So before you jump on an airplane you need to immerse yourself in the “how” of safe and profitable international real estate investing. Otherwise you’re flying
blind and taking risks you don’t need to.
Are you ready?
Blindsided (JM Mystery-thriller series Book 7)
None can see like the Blind…
Ryan Lorimar and Jessica Werner have a special gift: they can see ‘fallen angel’ apparitions within other people. But as the fallen angels in turn know that they’ve been ‘viewed’, it’s a gift that will get him killed. They need protection. They need to enter ‘Blind School’.
Their only hope is Ellis Kendell and his team of agents. Day in, day out, Kendell’s team trawl through street-cam images from across the nation to pick up that tell-tale eye light-refraction of ‘viewers’. Can Kendell’s team get to the viewers before the fallen angels and get them to safety in ‘Blind School’? But there’s also an added agenda: Kendell’s department want the ‘viewers’ help in tracking down more ‘fallen angels’.
Yet is Kendell deluding himself? Setting this small group of teens against a legion fifty-times their number of the most cunning and vicious murderers and criminal masterminds the nation has to offer – is he simply throwing them to the wolves? Fated to watch them one-by-one die. The odds are against them.
'An adrenalin-rush, one day read. If you’ve ever wondered what might make mass-murderers and megalomaniacs tick, now you know. Never has the ongoing fight between good and evil been so much fun, or so frighteningly real.’
- Wendy Mellor, Simply Scripts.
‘Harry Potter with attitude. Plumbs into the teen readership that has made Harry Potter and Twilight so popular, but with a wry slant that would also make it appeal to adults. Has ‘kidult’ written all over it.’
- Tom McIntyre, Xanadu Productions.
John Matthews reviews:
‘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.'
- The Times
'One of the most compelling novels I've read... an ambitious and big novel which will keep you enthralled to its last page.'
- Cork Examiner
'A classy, well-written and unusual thriller.'
- Yorkshire Post
'Matthews delivers one of the best debut thrillers in years, brave, ambitious and remorselessly entertaining. Past Imperfect is a stormer.'
- Dublin Evening Herald
'Move over Grisham, your reign is over! Reminiscent of vintage Grisham, but Matthews has his own distinctive style. Strong, believable characters and a plot that grips from page one and won't let go, twisting and turning its way towards a nail-biting climax - they don't come much better than this. One of the best and most memorable thrillers I've read in years. A winner all the way.'
- Bob Burke. Mystery Readers International.
Distinctively written… all the forceful energy of the best thrillers.
- Kirkus UK.
‘A clever premise for an epic page-turner written with wit, compassion (and) highly evolved characters.
- Daily Telegraph.
‘… A chilling and thrilling novel, one in which real people start to wonder if they are insane, and have to come to terms with a terrifying reality that threatens their own life. Mesmerising.
- Books Monthly
This is a fairly new excursion for me: a YA/urban fantasy adventure that started life as a film script. I was in the middle of a film adaptation for Past Imperfect at the time when a Hollywood Producer showed interest in the concept - so that was the form it first saw life in. So, yes, expect it to see life on the big screen some time 'soon' (see Douglas Adams' ref about 'baking cakes in Hollywood' for that one).
It also might only see limited life as a kindle direct book as it will soon start doing the rounds of publishers through my agent. So look upon this as mainly an ARC opportunity before it gets snapped up as the next Harry Potter or Twilight! :) Then it will disappear for a year before being seen again.

The trials of youth are always difficult, but sometimes fate brings forth every ounce of its fury down upon one soul despite their good intentions. Isiah Tolman embodies a heroic desire to feed the homeless through unconventional means. Unfortunately, the young man has disturbed the lives of a few tortured souls whose desire for retribution and hunger for chaos will send his life into uncharted territory.

Act III: Lives are forever changed as sinister revelations are exposed and those involved feel themselves compressed by unstoppable forces. As desperate decisions allow ruthless masters to impose their will, enemies are raised to the ground, and the innocence of youth is shed as the predatory nature of the world bares its horrid teeth…
