1PHOBIA NEW2Phobia (5 early Jason Smith cases) by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON for just 99p/99c 1st August 2019 only!!


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

If you like gripping detective stories, then this is a series you won’t want to miss.


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.



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 Whitton 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.

What readers are saying about Phobia
