  • **WINNER of the 2014-2015 Waverton Good Read Award**
    If I Should Die is the astounding debut from British author Matthew Frank.
    When a homeless man walks into Greenwich police station and confesses a killing, it should be the admission that cracks open a murder enquiry. Instead, he stumbles out on to the street and collapses, bleeding from a stab wound he's attempted to repair himself . . .

    From the publisher's description
  • 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

  • Detective Sergeant Fran Millhaven is just one of the best women copper characters you'll ever meet between the covers of a book . . . but Stark is the heart of this narrative. I am so looking forward to meeting him again . . . the moment Stark crosses over from soldier to CID detective is beautiful to behold. The action scenes, too, are terrific. Riveting
