What the bloggers and reviewers thought:

Donna’s Book Blog

I did guess the ending in part but there were plenty of twists and turns on the way to get there and for me this is definitely up there with my favourite books of the series so far and I am already eagerly awaiting the release of the next book in the series! Read more here

Nicki’s book blog

A clever plot and a very unusual premise- something I wasn’t previously aware of. I won’t give anything away other than to say ugh! A highly entertaining, most enjoyable interesting read. Read more here

The Word is Out

As the story reaches its dramatic conclusion there are a couple of heart-stopping moments from which no one will emerge unscathed. Without doubt this book will be another huge hit!  Read more here

Sharon Rimmelzwaan

There is humour running throughout too, the banter and chemistry you sense they are that well wrote. A crime thriller that leads you up many a garden path before it shows you the right way! Read more here

Loopy Laura

We see glimpses of the murderer’s viewpoint which ramps up the anticipation as we know another victim is being sought. The murderer is using blood as paint and there is plenty of clever misdirection from author Stewart Giles as he presents us with a range of potential suspects. Read more here

Akamatra

Severed was another amazing book of Smith’s adventures into finding the “bad guys” and working along his significant other! A very nice plot and quick too! Not at all “draining” Read more here

Ginger Book Geek

For me, ‘Severed’ is brilliantly written but then I wouldn’t expect anything else from Stewart Giles.  He draws you into the story from the first word on the first page and once he has your attention, he refuses to let it go.  Read more here

Shalini’s Books & Reviews

The tension was slowly built adding its pitch with the turn of a page. I wanted to enjoy the feelings the book evoked, the adrenaline rush. Hence I switched off my analytical brain and just enjoyed the ride. The story took me to the highest zenith and threw me down, a complete free fall… What a rush!! Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

As all the books in this series, it is well-written with skillfully created characters. The crimes are filled with red herrings and high stakes. I highly recommend starting at the very beginning … you’ll find a fascinating journey. Read more here

On The Shelf Reviews

Severed is a fast paced police procedural that sucked me in from the very beginning with, I have to say, one of the most gobsmacking endings in this series. Read more here

Black Books Blog

There is a lot going on in this book, which kept me hooked anf wanting to read more all the way through it. The ending was extremely shocking and not quite what i was expectimg, but Stewart built the suspense up perfectly. Read more here

SEVERED (Detective Jason Smith #10)

Available from Amazon for 99p/99c
Read more on Goodreads

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new addition to the popular Detective Jason Smith series. 

A student, who hasn’t been seen for a while is found dead in her room.  Her throat has been cut but it turns out that is not the cause of death!  The post-mortem reveals that she had been drained of all her blood.

The killer has left behind no evidence and there are no clues.  Is there a vampire loose in York?  When another body is found Smith and the team are struggling to find a link or a motive.  Will this be the case that defeats the brilliant DS Smith? How much more heartache can Jason Smith bear? Severed will take him to hell and back.


My Review

I am loving all the books Stewart Giles is writing this year so I was thrilled to be reading this one.  Book 10 and I have read them all but I did start with book 8 and then went back to read his back list so I can confirm they do work perfectly as stand alone.

A student’s housemates report a noxious smell coming from her room and as the team investigate they find her with her throat cut.  How could nobody miss her for 2 weeks?  The mystery deepens when a post mortem reveals she has been drained of blood.  Is there a vampire on the loose in York.  There are no clues and Smith is unsure where to look.

This is a very intriguing story and as I expect from Stewart a very unusual one.  It is fast paced and the reader gets drawn in to the story in the early pages and then is hooked into a fast paced journey full of dead ends and shocking curve balls all the way to the totally unexpected ending.

Smith is pulled apart by this case at a time when he is still reeling from events in a previous case.  Will this be one case too far and push Smith over the edge?  It certainly puts his emotions under extreme duress but whether he survives physically and mentally – well you will have to read the book to find out.

Another brilliant addition to the series.  10 books in you would imagine the characters are fully developed but there is still much to learn and I am hoping that this series will continue giving for many more books to come.

5 golden stars from me

THE SETTING

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.

Miranda is something totally different. A stand-alone psychological thriller, it is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before.

Severed, book 10 in the DS Jason Smith series is now available. I am currently writing Mistress, the sequel to Miranda.

DROPZONE (DS Smith & DC Taylor #2) by Stewart Giles #detective #crimefiction #TeamSJ @StewartGiles #Blogtour #bloggers

Yesterday I reshared my review of THE ENIGMA if you didnt see that you can read it here. Today as promised I am sharing a #booklaunch with a difference. Dropzone begins with the death of a skydiver whose parachutes failed. Stewart received a lot of help and advice from his Skydiving friends at SKYDIVE ON THE VAAL (South Africa). On Sunday a paperback copy of DROPZONE went skydiving. It was pushed out of the aircraft along with the skydivers and left to make its own way down without a parachute (just like the skydiver in the story) Below are the photos proving that DROPZONE really can fly.

What the bloggers thought of Dropzone:

Black Books Blog

As with all of Stewart’s books there are some nice little red herrings and more dead people along the way as we try and work out what happened.  Read more

Jessica Belmont

I highly recommend Dropzone. It will have your eyes glued to the pages and your heart thumping out of your chest. Read more here

Sharon Rimmelzwaan

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

Stewart Giles mixes an absorbing tale with patches of dark human behaviour and patches of humour which all make a great balance. Once again, as with all his books, it is impossible to second-guess who is behind the murders although I try every time.  Read more here

On The Shelf Reviews

If you’re looking for a novel with plenty of fast paced action and heart in your mouth moments, I think Dropzone is the book for you.  Read more here

The Word is Out

A terrific murder mystery, well written with plenty of twists and very engaging characters (including a repulsive pug!) which will keep the reader engrossed right up to the last page. Highly recommended, as are all the books by this author. 5* Read more here

Sassy Redhead Book Reviews

Akamatra

Do you really need to ask? I loved it! So much so that I asked Stewart for an interview and I am going live with it in a few days.  Read more here

Debbie Hipster

Once again it’s full of red herrings, keeping you guessing, and pondering on how did 2 chutes fail. Who is the murderer? It’s a good gripping pace, and highly enjoyed.   Read more here

Dropzone (DS Jason Smith & DC Harriet Taylor #2)

Available from Amazon   UK   US    AU    CA

Goodreads link to Dropzone

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes book 2 in the very popular DS Jason Smith and DC Harriet Taylor series.
Brandon Stone is doing his first Accelerated Free Fall Skydive. He has done the training and his instructors are with him so nothing can go wrong…. Can it? A double malfunction and Brandon is staring death in the face. A very rare accident. Or is it?

Jason is returning to work after 3 months recovering from injuries at the hands of Boronov. Light duties? Not if Jason can help it.

DC Harriet Taylor is taking a well deserved holiday with Jon Finch that includes tandem skydiving. Out of all the planes in the country they were on the same one as Brandon.

With a detective as a witness this should be an easy case to solve. Wrong! Jason and the team need all the help they can get to unravel the lies and find the clues before more bodies turn up.

This is a gripping story with twists, turns and intrigue all the way through. A fast moving page-turner you will not be able to put down.

THE DETECTIVES

DC Harriet Taylor had only been married for 2 years when her philandering husband was killed in a car crash. It is common knowledge around the station that the woman who died next to him was his latest lover. Harriet transferred to Trotterdown to escape the gossip and sympathetic looks. She is now finding her way around Cornwall and getting to know the other members of the team.

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 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.

What readers are saying about Dropzone:
As always, great plot with plenty of suspense and twists to keep you guessing until the end. – Kirsty Nimmo

“I loved this book. I think this maybe my very favourite Stewart Giles. It kept me on the edge to the end.” – Alison Gitelson

“I was quickly drawn into a world of air adventure and read it in two sittings. It’s an engaging, fast paced murder/mystery with believable characters, plot and background on their private lives.” – Carol Stone

It starts with an adrenaline pumping chapter and then delves into the investigation with a sprinkling of dead ends and jaw dropping twists and turns. – Books ‘n’ All

Still recovering from an accident, DS Jason Smith receives a strange phone call: ‘I want to live.’  The number is unknown, and Jason puts it down to a hoax call.  While doing a favour for DCI Chalmers the phone call suddenly begins to make sense and Jason is once again on the trail of a psychopath.

Can Smith stop this maniac before more people die?  Who is it and why does he have Smith’s number?  As the team struggle to find some kind of a lead Jason realises that it may not be his own life in danger this time but he is in danger of losing someone else he cares about.

This is a unique story that has a steadily increasing pace that continues to deliver all the way to the very last page.

The plot is well thought out, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.’ – Heather Opperman

Horsemen (Detective Jason Smith #7) by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new addition to the popular Detective Jason Smith series.

One draining murder investigation after another has left DS Jason on the brink of losing his sanity and he needs a break.

Smith sets off for the peaceful Yorkshire village of Scarpdale for two weeks of country air, slow walks by the lakes and no mobile phone reception. He wakes up on his first morning to find three policemen outside his room. A young woman has been found dead next to one of the lakes. Smith was one of the last people to see the woman alive.

Smith is begged by the woman’s father to find out what happened to his daughter. Against his better judgment, Smith agrees and starts to ask questions, but the locals are not giving anything away. When the woman’s boyfriend is found dead an hour before her funeral, Smith is baffled. The boyfriend was his odds on favourite for the woman’s murder.

Smith quickly realizes that rival horse breeders are involved somehow. Everybody he speaks to talks of something that happened in New York the previous summer; something sinister involving these horsemen but nobody seems to know exactly what went on.

An action packed thriller filled with the twists, turns and red herrings we expect from Stewart Giles. This is an edge of your seat page-turner that will appeal to all readers of crime fiction.

I’m a great fan of Stewart Giles and devour his books eagerly. I sometimes find that when I read a series I become bored and critical of the characters &plots but I never tire of Jason Smith.’–Pat McCulloch

Selene (Detective Jason Smith #6) by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON

Selene is book 6 in the adrenaline pumping Detective Jason Smith series by bestselling author: Stewart Giles.

A man is found tucked up in bed with his throat sliced open two days after Christmas.

DS Jason Smith and his team are baffled. It appears he has been drugged, killed and carefully wrapped up in a duvet. The only evidence Smith finds are some strands of hair belonging to a woman. One month later, another man is killed in exactly the same manner but there appears to be no link whatsoever to the two men apart from the fact that they were both single, lonely and middle aged.

Haunted by lucid dreams and terrifying double awakenings, Smith stumbles upon something that will send him on a hunt for the most baffling murderer the people of York has even seen. With time quickly running out before the next full moon and the safety of one of his closest colleagues entering the equation, Smith finally closes in on the most terrifying murderer he has ever come across.

This is a roller-coaster ride of a thriller with twists and turns all the way to an ending you won’t expect.

If you like Police Procedurals, then this is a series you won’t want to miss.

THE SETTING
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.

THE DETECTIVES
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.
