Silence on the Island: A Detective Liam O’Reilly Mystery (DI Liam O’Reilly mysteries Book 7)
From bestselling author, Stewart Giles, comes a new addition to the brilliant Detective Liam O’Reilly series.
January on the island of Guernsey is grim. It’s dark and depressing. Detective Liam O’Reilly expected as much.
What O’Reilly didn’t bargain for was the eerie silence on the island in the dead of winter.
And when an old lady disappears from a care home and reappears, dead on the grave of a soldier who died 80 years ago, O’Reilly has absolutely no idea what to think.
When more old people are found, murdered amongst the tombs of these dead soldiers, and O’Reilly is met with silence everywhere he turns, he really has no idea why these people had to die.
Then he finally hears the truth.
But it is a truth that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

THE MIRANDA TRILOGY (psychological thrillers)
Detective Liam O’Reilly and his team are back with another unputdownable addition to the series.
It is January on Guernsey and all is quiet, too quiet for the grumpy Irish detective. But where Liam is things never stay quiet for long.
A care home resident is found on the grave of a soldier in the military cemetery. Who would want to murder a disabled old lady? The suspects are the care home staff but there are no clues and no motive. Things are not right at the care home though, of that Liam is convinced. Then another body is found……..
This is a very intriguing story with many twists and turns and as usual parts that make you smile. The suspect I had in mind turned out to be innocent, the one I was sure was innocent was not so innocent after all. Very twisty turny making the reader think and rethink all the way through.
The characters continue to develop with Liam O’Reilly seeming to become a little less grumpy (or maybe not) and his relationship with Bram the cat is just brilliant. The story based characters gain depth very quickly and bring their own personalities to the story.
A very intriguing read that kept me turning pages all the way to the end.
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 brought 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 with book 17 now available. In addition, I have a new series featuring an Irish detective who relocated to Guernsey. The first 7 books in the Detective Liam O’Reilly series are now available. There are also 3 stand alone novels.
