aka James Harland, Matthew Lynn

Matt Lynn was born in 1962 and and grew up in Exeter and Dublin, before moving to London. He was educated at Balliol College, Oxford. After a career as a financial journalist and ghost-writer, which included three number-one best-sellers, he started writing the 'Death Force' series of action-adventure thrillers in 2009. Featuring a group of mercenaries, the series started with Death Force in 2009, followed by Fire Force in 2010, and continuing with Shadow Force in 2011. The News of the World gave the first book a four-star rating, describing it as “a Boy's-Own adventure guaranteed to get the pulse racing. It is up there with the finest that Andy McNab or Chris Ryan have ever penned.”
