What the bloggers think:


Black Books Blog

I love this book as it is so different from normal crime books and had me hooked from the very first page. There are so many twists and turns throughout and you never quite know Miranda and her mental state as the drugs and her persona are very clever entwined leaving you guessing as to whether she really is insane or just using the system to her own advantage.  Read more here

Books From Dusk Till Dawn

This is a truly busy book that had me on a constant high and tense on all the story lines as it bounced from one to another. You simply can’t guess the outcomes of any of them. Absolutely belting!  Highly recommended!  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

Miranda relates to the reader each and every crime in detail. Some she says were accidents, but then she got hooked on killing.  But the big question is …. did she really commit these crimes? Or is this all in her own mind?  Read more here

#GuestPost: Why I wrote MIRANDA – Stewart Giles.

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

This is a fast read because I couldn’t put the book down and the suspense is a strong thread running all the way through the story. The reader is fastened in to their seat and taken on the roller coaster ride of a lifetime totally engrossed in a book that just keeps on giving all the way to the jaw-dropping finale.  Read more here

Jen Meds Book Reviews

Stewart Giles has produced a book that certainly has a lot of twists that keeps the reader guessing as to which parts are fact and which are fiction (if any are) and I will admit that I didn’t expect the ending at all. The main characters certainly don’t disappoint with the killer appearing to have no redeeming characteristics including no motive other than they seem to enjoy the thrill of the kill.  This is a thoroughly enjoyable read and would heartily recommend it to anyone who is a fan of psychological thrillers.  Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog

I have to say that I really enjoyed this story, it was different from what I expected based on the author’s previous releases but in a very good way, I thought it was a really good way to approach and tell the story.  I loved the different time periods where you go forward and back in time to learn about the past, and present for Miranda.  Read more here


You know the feeling when you read a brilliant book and you go out and get every book that author ever written only to discover each book is better than the last? Yeap, that’s what I’ve done in the case of Stewart Giles. He has become one of my top five mystery/thriller writers! I recently read his book Miranda and here is my review. Spoiler Alert: the book is BRILLIANT!!!!

From the first page of the book and the tagline about Miranda having killed 13 people, till the end of the book, I couldn’t put it down! This is a page turner with brilliantly writen characters, amazing edge-of-your-seat suspence and a totally TOTALLY unexpected end!  If you only read one book this month, read this one!  Read more here

Turn The Page Blog

Having read all the Stewart Giles books, I can safely say this is completely different.  A standalone thriller which keeps you guessing all the way through. I read this in next to no time, flows well, plot keeps you going! I cannot recommend this enough! Fantastic Read! Read more here

Nicki’s book blog

I really enjoyed this and took to the characters- even Miranda and felt sorry for how she was treated by Dr French. The pages turned easily and I wanted the book to be longer, if that
makes sense , I was enjoying it so much whilst wanting things to be put right.  A crime book with a psychological perspective, something that little bit different.  Read more here

Miranda: A stand-alone psychological thriller by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON for just 99p/99c

 ‘My name is Miranda. I’ll be twenty-eight-years old soon, and I’m a serial murderer.’

 ‘I might just kill again!’

 From #1 bestseller Stewart Giles comes a completely stand-alone psychological thriller that you don’t want to miss.

Miranda is a unique read, the best book yet by Stewart Giles.  Sentenced to life in a secure hospital for the murder of 12 people Miranda tells her story.

In the meantime, the reader is transported back to the time of the murders as we follow DI Keene and her team along the many twists, turns and dead ends as they try to find the murderer of several unrelated victims.

This is an edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline pumping read that will have you turning the pages all the way to the totally unexpected ending.

Buckle up this is a bumpy ride

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 there are plenty more to come. Unworthy, the ninth Smith instalment was followed by a totally new start to a series – a collaboration between the Smith and Harriet thrillers. Entitled The Enigma, it brings together the broody, enigmatic Jason Smith and the more level-headed Harriet Taylor. Miranda is something totally different. A stand-alone psychological thriller, it is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before. A new Smith/Harriet book is in the pipeline as is the 10th Smith instalment.
