About this title:

Synopsis: This book is the Winner of the 2014-2015 Waverton Good Read Award. If I Should Die is the astounding debut from British author Matthew Frank. It begins with vicious, apparently motiveless attacks on down and outs in South London. But when one of the homeless victims dies from his wounds, it's murder...For the Met investigation team's newest member, Joseph Stark, death is already all too familiar. Injured in an attack that killed his fellow soldiers and tortured by nightmares since he returned, Afghan veteran Stark has enough on his hands just trying to recover without enduring the scrutiny and sideways glances of his new colleagues. The drink and painkillers he's leaning on to keep going aren't helping. And there's only so long he can ignore the efforts of the Ministry of Defence to speak to him. When one of the victims of the attacks fights back it's soon clear that there's much more at stake than gangs preying randomly on society's weakest members. But as Stark hunts down the truth - and the rotten heart of the crimes - his own strength is fading. It seems that the ex-soldier's determination to see justice done may not, this time, be enough to carry him through. If I Should Die is the first title in a new crime series, and outstanding characterization, pitch perfect dialogue and precision plotting mark out Matthew Frank as a debut writer to watch. With the introduction of series character and ex-soldier police detective Joseph Stark, fans of Ian Rankin's Rebus novels will be hooked from the word go. Praise for If I Should Die: "A gripping murder story...Frank brilliantly maintains a balance between the demands of a complex plot and his character's difficulty in returning to civilian life...an accomplished first novel." (Sunday Times). "Well researched and totally convincing, this is the first of several Stark books. Great news if they're as good as this." (Sunday Mirror). "A very powerful novel. The writing is so good that it is difficult to believe that this is a debut." (New Books Magazine). "A highly assured debut...we'll look forward to the next." (Crime Fiction Lover). "A great debut introducing an unusual lead character - I'm looking forward to reading more in the series." (5*s - Novel Heights). "Brilliantly written." (Oodals Blog). Matthew Frank lives in Kent with his wife and three young sons. Between family life and work as an architect he tries to squeeze in a bit of mountain biking, scuba diving and midnight writing. If I Should Die is his first novel.
