What readers are saying about Mistress:

‘One heck of a story. She’s clever, insane and I loved every page. It’s worthy of double the stars.’ – Booklover Bev

‘Giles has done it again!  I was riveted.  More expertly crafted action packed adventures with Miranda.’ – Carol Stone

My Review

This is book 2 in the Miranda Trilogy so if you haven’t read book 1 I recommend you do so because it helps to understand Miranda and her personality.

Book 1 ended with the death of Patricia and that is where this book begins. 

Lets start with the characters. 

Miranda, she found out by accident that she likes to watch people die, in particular men.  She also has an inbuilt repulsion of men ‘handling’ her in any way and her reaction to any contact is uncontrollable rage.  There is something about the character that you have to like.  Any woman who has suffered any kind of abuse is likely to have a small part of them high fiving Miranda for having the guts to do what they couldn’t.  Miranda is unique, different and an absolute genius of a character so kudos to the author for her creation.

DS Swales was Patricia’s colleague and he was also present when Miranda ‘confessed’.  Both he and Patricia put Miranda down to a weirdo and because of this he feels guilty that Patricia lost her life because they didn’t take the confession seriously.  He is on a mission to make amends for this mistake and that mission will take him to the other side of the world where he will follow Miranda but always one step behind.  He is a very caring man and I love how his personality has flourished in this book.

Lisa.  She is a news blogger and also the sister of a David who was sent to prison for a murder that Miranda committed.  Lisa teams up with Henry Swales using her blogging network to track Miranda.  Lisa is a selfless person who will stop at nothing to prove David’s innocence.  Tragedy wont stop her mission to see Miranda pay for her crime and David exonerated.

The story – well what can I say it is a roller coaster of adrenaline pumping suspense that will keep you turning page after page.  There are many twists and turns, numerous shocks and a lot of false leads.  Will Henry and Lisa catch her?  With Interpol and US Police each managing their own investigation the race is on to catch Miranda.  However, Miranda is nothing if not resourceful and she has avoided capture for some time.  Will time run out or will she continue to kill? 

I do love how the author has written in about bloggers.  They get a lot of bad press and it is brilliant to see them take an important and beneficial part in this story.

This is a work of fiction and the author has taken full advantage of that to write a totally gripping story with an absolutely breath-taking ending that makes for a 5star read.  I can’t wait for the final instalment.


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.

Blog Tour Wrap Up – VENOM (DS Smith #9) by Stewart Giles #newrelease #crimefiction #detective @stewartgiles

Thank you to all the absolutely wonderful Bloggers, readers and supporters who helped with the launch of VENOM your help is very much appreciated — THANK YOU Stewart and Jill xx

What the readers and bloggers thought:

Black Books Blog

The tension towards the end of the book is immense and, unlike most books, the drama doesn’t finish until the very last page with people being in danger all the way through the last couple of chapters. As with all of Stewart’s other books this one will keep you hooked and the action never lets up. The ending was shocking and Stewart has put Jason Smith through more things in this book than ever before.  Read more here

Sassy Redhead Book Reviews

I loved this story and the characters are always so great to read. I enjoy the way that the characters work together to get the results needed to solve the case. The depth the detectives will go to get results is always interesting to me. I enjoy a good sleuth story and this one did not disappoint. I thought I had the criminal sorted out but then I second guessed myself only to find out that I was spot on. Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

Kudos to the author who came up with a unique killer with a distinctive way to kill. Once started, I couldn’t put it down for long. There are surprising twists and turns, lots of action and plenty of suspense. Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

I always enjoy Stewart’s books but this one has scaled heights which he has never reached before. It was page-turningly brilliant and left me so dreadfully disappointed when I had finished it. I wanted more! Immediately! Read more here

The Word is Out

As with previous stories from this author this book is a joy to read and once started I just did not want to put it down. There is heart-warming humour and banter between the main characters which just makes the story even more human and enjoyable, and we get some insight from the killer’s point of view which is also interesting knowing things that Smith does not.   Read more here

Sarah’s Thoughts

So Stewart has nailed it once more. This is the latest Jason Smith book and it is gripping, the only complaint i have is that Jason is the target again (sorry Stewart). But if you want an easy read on an emotional thrilling rollercoaster this is it.

Turn The Page Blog

DS Smith is back…. Absolutely fantastic read, but I advise you not to buy this is you housework as it won’t get done ! I was unable to leave this alone. The blurb says it all… Read more here

On The Shelf Reviews

If you’re not familiar with Stewart Giles’ work, they’re fast paced police procedurals, with a sprinkling of dark humour, plenty of action. Smith is a stubborn Australian, who even though he’s matured a little is still his usual rule bending, stubborn self.  Read more here

Akamatra

This is a fast paced book as Stewart usually writes them. I was gripping my phone (I read it on my kindle app) and trying to refrain from bitting my nails! I loved it!  Read more here

Debbie Hipster

The cases were interesting and highly inventive and pulled on my intrigue the whole way through. And seeing Smith get emotional with this case tugs on heart strings for sure. Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog

I honestly think that this author’s stories are going from strength to strength, he has an additive writing style and I love reading about the characters he has created and can’t wait to see what he releases next – no hesitation with this one – it is 5 stars from me!! Read more here

VENOM, Detective Jason Smith book 9

Available from Amazon

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

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 SETTING
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 DETECTIVE
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 that doesn’t always mean following orders and procedures.  However, he does get results.

What readers are saying about Venom

‘This author’s style of writing is phenomenal to the end.  He never fails me.  All of his books that I have read have pushed all my buttons.  The only thing I can say I didn’t like was THE END!  NO! I want more of DS Jason Smith.  So looking forward to the next one.’ – Booklover Bev

‘What an amazing book, I read it in one sitting as I couldn’t wait to see what Stewart put Jason Smith through next.’ – Simon @ Black Books Blog

‘WOW! Just when I think that Stewart Giles cannot get any better, he goes ahead and proves me wrong. I absolutely LOVED Venom. The action is tight and fast paced. The tension keeps mounting until you feel that you physically can’t sit still any more. The plot is well thought out, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end.’ – Heather Opperman

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

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

AN ESSENTIAL INTRODUCTION TO THE DETECTIVE JASON SMITH THRILLER SERIES.

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.

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.

What readers are saying about Phobia

‘I really enjoyed this book, we get to read five stories featuring Jason Smith which set the scene and tell us more about his character before the first full length novel – Smith..’ – Donna Maguire

‘I still can’t understand why Stewart is not better known to fans of crime thrillers, but it’s their loss! Five stars *****.Pat McCulloch

– which is just as well as I have already downloaded the next 8 books. I’m liking DS Smith so far and look forward to reading more about this very interesting detective.’ – Dora

An unusual and effective way to introduce young policeman Jason Smith to his reading public, and to his induction into CID. A thoroughly entertaining read.’ Kindle Customer

All of the killings correspond to events in Smith’s life and the murderer leaves dates at the crime scene which tie up to important dates in Smith’s history.

As the countdown begins can Jason catch York’s first serial killer before it’s too late?

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.

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

The circus comes to town and children start to disappear.

Detective Sergeant Jason Smith is persuaded to return to work after three weeks of a marijuana induced haze. Forced to endure the leadership of a new DI, the fulsome Bryony Brownhill, Smith is faced with the most difficult investigation of his colourful career.
When the children who vanished are found murdered in various parts of the city, all clues lead to the circus grounds, but Smith and his team are met with a sinister silence everywhere they turn.

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.
