Evil on the Island (DI Liam O’Reilly mysteries Book 12)

‘I know about evil, because my mum is evil. She killed my dad. My mother murdered my father, and left him where she knew I would find him.’

A class discussion in a prestigious school on the peaceful island of Guernsey takes a sinister turn when the body of the father of one of the students is found, exactly where the boy said he would be.

The sixteen-year-old has no further information to offer the Island Police, and his mother has disappeared off the face of the earth.

Detective Inspector Liam O’Reilly has no idea where to look. The boy’s father was stabbed multiple times, but there is nothing at the scene to suggest why this man was killed in such a horrific manner.

Then another man is found dead.

But when a third suffers the same fate soon afterwards, O’Reilly knows that he’s up against something darker than his mind could ever comprehend.

There’s something evil on the island, and O’Reilly has no idea how to stop it.

What readers are saying about EVIL ON THE ISLAND:

An ingenious plot and one where I couldn’t work out as to whom the perpetrator was until it was revealed. A thoroughly entertaining gripping read. Hurry up with the next one! – Misfits Farm

Love the characters, a big plus for me. Liam has an up and down relationship with his cats but it might be on an even keel at present and his daughter’s partner DC Andy Stone has flashes where Liam can tolerate him. So quite a bit of humour throughout. A most enjoyable read. – Maureen

Another brilliant read that I was unable to put down. Intrigue and suspense all the way through, absolutely brilliant. – Amazon Reviewer


Evil on the Island is book 12 in the brilliant Detective Liam O’Reilly series by Stewart Giles.  They work perfectly as stand alone but they are very addictive so you will probably find you want to read them all.

I have loved every book and this one is no different I was hooked from the very beginning and the suspense built through the course of the story.  I always feel each new addition to the series is better than the previous book and that is definitely the case with this one.

The story begins with a schoolboy admitting to finding his father dead that morning and even more shocking he is convinced his mother is the murderer.  The Police are convinced it is just a schoolboy prank but it seems it is all too true. And worse is to come.

I have to admit I really had no idea at all who the suspect was until it was revealed at the very end and that was mind blowing.

I love how the book is fast paced but Stewart has managed to build personal aspects into the story to offset the darkness and as usual there is the amusing back story featuring his cats.

The characters we know and love continue to develop and the new ones fit the plot perfectly.  I love the schoolchildren they are realistic and act as I would expect of that age.

Another absolutely brilliant read that I was unable to put down.  I can’t wait for the next book.

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 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. I also have another series featuring an Irish detective who relocated to Guernsey, the Detective Liam O’Reilly series. There are also 3 stand alone novels.
