Australia :DS Jason Smith Book 14
From #1 bestselling author: Stewart Giles comes another brilliant addition to the Detective Jason Smith series
Detective Jason Smith is sick and tired of the English weather. It’s February in York and the dark, dreary days are getting him down.
When his wife, DC Erica Whitton wins a holiday to Australia, Smith is reluctant to go. He has no desire to go back home. Against his better judgement, Smith agrees to show his wife and daughter where he grew up.
The perfect holiday soon turns into a nightmare as Smith finds himself in a race against time to save the only people he’s ever cared about.
Children in Smith’s home town are being murdered. There’s something rotten there, an evil Smith has never come across before, and the local police are not what they appear to be.
When his wife is attacked and his daughter is taken, Smith realises he’s on his own. With the clock ticking, and not knowing if his daughter is alive or dead, Smith comes face to face with the worst kind of evil he’s ever encountered.

AUSTRALIA quickly demonstrates true evil with a heinous, horrific, abhorrent incident. Following this, in an idyllic setting, the unthinkable happens. Relentless heart-pounding agonizing suspense will hold you spellbound from start to finish. You will not be able to put it down. The pages will fly by while your heart races on every one. This is a mesmerizing, one sitting, book.‘ – Eileen
I enjoyed treating about Smith’s adventures in Australia, as always fast paced with sharp, witty dialogue. A family holiday takes a sudden and shocking unexpected twist and becomes a personal crusade as Smith does what he does best and has to battle to piece together what has happened. Well written and believable as we follow Smith’s journey and how he overcomes the various obstacles in his way. Fast paced, enjoyable crime thriller set in Australia in contrast to York – Kirsty
One heck of a thriller – a real page turner.The best Smith story to date!-Carol

My Review

It is hard to believe that this is the 14th DS Smith book and Stewart Giles is still finding unique stories to write in this series.  Despite having read every book I am still hoping there are many more to come.

So once again Smith is put through more trauma and heartache in this latest addition.

Whitton wins a holiday to Australia, returning to the country of his birth, the place that has so many bad memories is the last thing Smith wants to do but showing little Laura the place her daddy came from persuades him and off they go.

If they were expecting a few weeks of sun and relaxation they have a shock coming.  A visit to Freemantle beach and Smiths worst nightmare becomes a reality.

With Whitton in hospital and Laura missing and the police seemingly incompetent Smith is very much on his own or so he thinks.  When help arrives from an unexpected direction the race is on to find Laura before it is too late.

This is a heartrending edge-of-your-seat story that had me turning page after page.  A totally unique storyline adds to the overall experience culminating in a brilliant thriller maybe Stewart Giles best book yet.  However, I seem to say that with every book and each seems even better than the last so I am very much looking forward to the next book in this awesome series.


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.

In 2014 Ann dropped a rather large speaker on my head and 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 was published and soon hit the number one spot in Australia. The second in the series, The Perfect Murder did just as well.

I continued to self-publish the Smith series and Unworthy hit the shelves in 2018 with amazing results.  I therefore made the decision to self-publish The Backpacker which is book 3 in the Detective Harriet Taylor series which was published in July 2018.

After The Backpacker I had an idea for a totally new start to a series – a collaboration between the Smith and Harriet thrillers and The Enigma was born. It brings together the broody, enigmatic Jason Smith and the more level-headed Harriet Taylor.

The Miranda trilogy is something totally different. A psychological thriller trilogy. It is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before.

The Detective Jason Smith series continues to grow and there are now 14 books including the introduction: Phobia.
