Matthew Frank is a Kent-based author who works as an architect during non-writing hours. His debut novel, If I Should Die, introduced Trainee Detective Constable Joseph Stark, newly discharged from the Territorial Army on medical grounds following a firefight in Helmand. Swapping one uniform for another, Stark discovers that the criminals of south-east London can be just as taxing as the Taliban. If I Should Die was published by Penguin.
The second Joseph Stark thriller, Between the Crosses, was published in September 2016, and there are a further two Stark books now under contract.
