What the readers are saying:

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

The action in the book ranges between England, Australia and Vietnam, as each little piece in the puzzle is revealed but it all has a certain sense of inevitability, making it page-turningly fast. I enjoy Stewart Giles’ easy writing style and his portrayal of characters, added to the fact that most of the action takes place in this wonderful County I call home.  Read more here


Linda Strong Book Reviews

As usual, Smith is at loggerheads with his superiors and at times he comes across as rude and sarcastic. He also has a softer side and the differences make him an interesting character to follow. It’s fast-paced and action-packed. I look forward to reading the next book in Smith’s adventures.  Read more here


Donna’s Book Blog

It is well written and has some fantastic characters.  The writing style is really suited to this genre and I loved the flow.  The storyline had me gripped from the beginning and I loved the ending!!  Read more here


Black Books Blog

This book follows Smith and Witton as they are trying to uncover York’s first serial killer, who is writing dates on the dead people’s feet after he has killed them.  He is very hard to catch as, even though he makes no attempts to hide once he has made his killing, he wears a disguise each time and changes his appearance and accent all the way through the book.


On the Shelf Book Reviews

I feel like this series is getting better and better! Boomerang is a fast paced police procedural that has a whole heap of twists and turns which leads to up an emotional and nail biting ending.


Debbie Hipster

Here I am once again thoroughly gripped and immersed into a fast paced, murder mystery. Following the mystery unfold through the Detective’s eyes. I love the two different timelines and the international aspect of the stories, and that the book kept me guessing right to the last point.  Read more here


Ginger Book Geek

Bloody hell ‘Boomerang’ is certainly one hell of a rollercoaster ride of a read.  I was gripped from the first word on the first page and Smith had me under his spell until I read the last word on the last page.  The story starts in a memorable way and you can’t help but carry on reading to discover how the Vietnam War is connected to what is happening in present day York.  Read more here

Boomerang coverBoomerang (DS Jason Smith #2) by Stewart Giles

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new addition to the popular Detective Jason Smith series.

A MAN IS KILLING PEOPLE IN YORK!

Initially the murders appear to be the random acts of a maniac.
Detective Jason Smith is put in charge of the investigation. It soon becomes clear that the murders are all connected to him in one way or another.
All of the killings correspond to events in Smith’s life and the murderer leaves dates at the crime scene which tie up to important dates in Smith’s history. When one of the dates is a time before Smith was even born, he realises he must look deep into the past to find a way to stop the worst spate of murders in York’s long history.
As the countdown begins can Jason catch York’s first serial killer before it’s too late?

This is a fast-paced page-turner that has so many twists and turns it keeps the reader guessing right up to the shocking end.

If you like Police Procedurals, then this is a series you won’t want to miss.

THE SETTING
York is a historic walled city in North Yorkshire, England.
At the confluence of the River Ouse and Foss, York is the traditional county town of the historic county of Yorkshire. York Minster and a variety of cultural and sporting activities make it a popular tourist destination.

THE DETECTIVES
DS Jason Smith is an Australian who was sent to York to live with his Grandmother when his sister disappeared from a beach. He has suffered many losses in his short life and is now a dedicated detective. He is a bit of a loose cannon he has his own way of doing things and that doesn’t always mean following orders and procedures.
DS Thompson is of the same rank as Jason, but he doesn’t have the same support or success. He and Jason have a love/hate relationship which brings a bit of humour to the series. Thompson is old school and thinks his age should give him respect and privileges, but life doesn’t work that way for him.
DC Erica Witton is Jason’s preferred partner they work well together and share a bond. She isn’t always appreciated by Jason, but they care about each other and that brings a different dimension to the series.

My Review


SG Author photo (4)Stewart Giles – Author Bio

After reading English at 3 Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling around the world with my wife, Ann, finally settling in South Africa, where we still live. After Ann dropped a rather large speaker on my head I came up with the idea for a detective series. DS Jason Smith was born. Smith, the first in the series was finished a few months later. 3 years and 8 DS Smith books later, Joffe Books wondered if I would be interested in working with them. As a self-published author, I agreed. However, we decided on a new series – the DC Harriet Taylor Cornwall series. The Beekeeper hit the shelves and hit the number one spot in Australia. The second in the series, The Perfect Murder did just as well. The third in the series, The Backpacker I have self-published and is now available.
