Mr Mathews' new spoof murder-mystery series was launched in November 2018 and stars self-proclaimed detective genius Clinton Trump - an Englishman who shuns logic, breaches protocol and trusts in his own gut instincts. Meanwhile, his popular 'We Have Lost' comedy-thriller series set in 2040s

This was an enjoyable mix of Bertie Wooster & Reggie Pepper short stories. Towards the end of the collection - with the exception of the last topping yarn - the quality (top hat and) tailed off. I found at least one tale had far too many characte ...more

This comedy novel is brilliant, laugh-out-loud, perceptive and packed full of witty observations and gags. John O'Farrell is a real comic genius - that's why he used to write for UK political satire 'Spitting Image' and a host of other shows. He may ...more

“She only wants people in the president’s inner circle walking her precious pooches.’ ‘But I’m not exactly in his inner circle, am I, sir?’ Howie placed an understanding hand on Conor’s shoulder. ‘You’re the nearest person to the centre of the circle we could persuade to do it.”
Paul Mathews, We Have Lost The Chihuahuas

“We should definitely write a book – The Psychology of Presidents: A guide for dealing with the democratically elected and delusional.”
Paul Mathews, We Have Lost The Coffee

“Never ask a liar if he’s lying to you,’ drawled Louie. ‘You’ll only tie yourself up in knots trying to figure out what the hell they’re not trying to tell you.”
