Linda Strong Book Reviews

It’s quite a journey watching him grow and mature from his very first day on the job to a man who has developed and honed his instinctive feelings that make him an exceptional detective.  Read more here

On the Shelf Book Reviews

Each story is split into short sharp chapter making it a quick and pacey read. I don’t often say this with a collection, I could not pick a favourite, they were all fantastic! Each story was well plotted, action packed and entertaining.  Read more here

Blimey oh riley this was a fantastic introduction to the dreamy sounding DS Jason Smith.  I am not usually a huge fan of short stories but I totally loved this collection.  The stories were well written and well plotted.  This collection of different short investigations/ stories were the complete package.   Read more here

This I think is the perfect introduction to DS Smith, as this isn’t the first book i read, II thin that it definitely builds on the character development! I would highly recommend this, especially to DS Smith Fans but also to short story lovers. Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog

I read the stories over a few nights and it was a treat for me as I learnt more about one of my favourite characters.  The stories are short but well written and they contain a lot detail.  They are as well written as the full length books so it was a real pleasure to read them!  Read more here

Phobia CoverPhobia: Five disturbing early DS Smith cases (DS Jason Smith Detective Thriller)


Available from Amazon

Phobia is a series of five DS Jason Smith cases he worked on before we met him in the first book ‘Smith’. We get insights into what moulded him into the Detective Sergeant we first get a glimpse of in ‘Smith’. Smith quickly realizes that police work isn’t always cut and dry. Justice is not always black and white; there are many shades of grey in between.

My Review

Stewart Giles Author PhotoStewart Giles – Author Bio

After reading English & Drama at three different English Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling and finally ended up in South Africa, where I still live. I enjoy the serene life running a boat shop on the banks of the Vaal Dam. I came up with the DS Jason Smith idea after my wife dropped a rather large speaker on my head. Whether it was intentional still remains a mystery. Smith, the first in the series was finished in September 2013 and was closely followed by Boomerang and Ladybird. Occam’s Razor, Harlequin and Phobia (a series of short stories detailing Smith’s early life) were all completed in one hazy 365 days and Selene was done and dusted a few months later.
