The Enigma (DS Jason Smith & DC Harriet Taylor #1)
From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new detective series featuring the detectives from both the series’ we know and love.
In Trotterdown, Cornwall a boat, The Enigma washes in to the harbour. The skipper is dead, and Harriet Taylor is brought in to investigate. But 1 dead body is not the only crime the team have to deal with.
Meanwhile, further up the coast in Whitby a boat washes up on the rocks just outside the harbour. Everyone on board is dead. Whitby Police are out of their depth, so DS Jason Smith is called in to help.
It soon becomes clear the cases are connected and the teams from York and Trotterdown settle down to work with each other.
This is a unique story with twist, turns and shocks all the way through making it an adrenaline pumping read you will not be able to put down.
DC Harriet Taylor had only been married for 2 years when her philandering husband was killed in a car crash. It is common knowledge around the station that the woman who died next to him was his latest lover. Harriet transferred to Trotterdown to escape the gossip and sympathetic looks. She is now finding her way around Cornwall and getting to know the other members of the team.
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.

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 and DS Jason Smith was born.
I finished Smith, the first in the series within a few months. 3 years and 8 DS Smith books later, I was contacted by Joffe Books to ask 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 also 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.
