Selene (DS Jason Smith #6) by Stewart Giles

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

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 ever 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.


What the Bloggers are saying:

Black Books Blog 

The story follows Smith and the team as they investigate the murder of two men, who are not connected in anyway and are killed almost a month apart.  With no new leads the new DI brings in a psychiatrist she has used in the past to see if she can work out who the murderer is and why they are killing in the way they are.  Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews 

This is the sixth in the Jason Smith series and I have to say that these books get better and better. I’m enjoying the insight into Smith’s character and, although at first I thought the writer had made a mistake by showing how immature Smith was in the first book, his character is developing from book to book and I now bow down to the author’s superior knowledge. Smith is growing with each book.  Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog 

I enjoyed the twists in this book and the ending was great. The characters were excellent as always and it was great to see the relationships develop even further as the team struggled to crack on of the hardest cases they have faced to date.  Read more here

 

Linda Strong Book Reviews 

Each of the books in this series is better than the last. Jason Smith has become one of my favorite characters. I really enjoy the mix of professional and personal. The returning characters begin to feel like family and I look forward to seeing whatever Smith gets into down the road.  Read more here

My Thoughts


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 Witton 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.

‘A Great Read! Very intense at times, excellent writing and well worth the time to read. You can’t go wrong with a Stewart Giles book!!!’ – Kindle Customer

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. After Ann dropped a rather large speaker on my head 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 hit the shelves and hit the number one spot in Australia. The second in the series, The Perfect Murder did just as well. The third in the series, The Backpacker I have self-published and is now available.

The book kept me guessing all the way to the end, and even when Smith was talking to the murderer I still didn’t realise until he finally confessed and everything fell into place. Read more here

Ginger Book Geek 

Oh my goodness gracious me, ‘Horsemen’ is one seriously, stonkingly well written and fantastic book.  The author certainly knows how to grab your attention from the start and much like a hypnotist, he keeps you under the book’s spell until the moment you close the back cover.    Read more here

Horsemen (DS 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 seen talking to the woman the night before.

Smith is begged by Jimmy Phoenix 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 Sophie’s boyfriend, Lewis Van Camp is found dead an hour before her funeral, Smith is baffled. Lewis was his odds on favourite for Sophie’s murder.

Smith quickly realizes that rival horse breeders, the Van Camps and the Phoenix’s 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.

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.

My thoughts

This review is for the newly updated and re-edited version

I love this series. The books just get better and better and this one is no different.

I am pleased to see Smith starting to mature and get it together with Whitton. They make a brilliant team both personally and professionally. I also like the humour Stewart has run through the books especially with Chalmers and Smyth I can actually see that happening in real life.

The story revolves around the people with big money the underlying theme being ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’

Smith is planning a break away from all the evil and death in his private and professional life but first he needs to solve the McDonalds robberies that are taking place around the city. This brings him face to face with Jimmy Phoenix, a self made millionaire.

The McDonalds case closed Smith sets off for the Yorkshire wilderness but typical of Smith’s world a break is not going to happen anytime soon.

Love, love, love this story. There are so many twists and turns as Smith tries to untangle secrets and the intrigue builds right to the end. As is typical the ending is a totally unexpected.

Characters that grow with every book, a unique story with twists, turns and red herrings this is everything a crime thriller should be and more. A must read for lovers of great detective stories.

5 golden stars from me.

What readers are saying about Horsemen:

‘Just finished the latest Jason Smith book and thoroughly enjoyed the series so far. Great characters, clever storylines with excitement and humour thrown in. Well worth a read.’ – Margaret Murray

‘Having read the previous Jason Smith books, I was waiting eagerly for this new addition – and I wasn’t disappointed in the least. I’ve found them all engaging from the first page and so easy to become totally immersed in the story as it so carefully unfolded on each page.’ – Paul B
‘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

‘Another compelling detective story in the delightful DS Jason Smith series of thrillers. Jason finds he has to cross the Atlantic in order to solve a crime committed on his own doorstep. A most satisfying ending.’ – Kindle Customer

‘I have read the whole series back to back and really enjoyed them, both plot and character wise. Really looking forward to next one, to see what’s in store for Smith’ – JeffKnowsStuff

My Thoughts

NOTE: this review is for the newly updated and re-edited Kindle version.

WOW , what can I say I am absolutely loving this DS Smith series by Stewart Giles.  Selene is book 6 and is another riveting page-turner. The series gets better book by book.

Selene is 10 years old when she sneaks around in the middle of the night to watch a Pagan Ceremony.  What she sees shocks her into giving away her hiding place and she is captured and imprisoned.  6 years later she excapes but the experience has left deep psychological scars.

Sad, lonely, middle aged men are being murdered and then tucked up in bed.  This is a very difficult case for Smith and his team.  There are no clues, no apparent motive and no links between the victims.  As time drags on the team becomes depressed and nobody knows where to turn.

I love how the team develop book by book and Smith is really growing up he has had a lot of heartbreak and tragedy in his life and these have moulded him in to the person he is.  That person is totally unique and my hat is off to the author for the way he has created and developed Smith and the rest of his team.  All are unique characters with their own quirks and personalities but they all make up a very effective team.

I was sad to see one of my favourite characters leave but this is a realistic series and people come and go.

A very  intriguing book with a lot of twists and turns and red herrings along the way.  It had me guessing all the way to the end and of course, I was totally wrong.

Another 5 star read – Brilliant!

THE SETTING

He has suffered many losses in his short life and is now a dedicated detective.

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.

BLOG TOUR – Harlequin (DS Smith #5) by Stewart Giles #crimefiction #policeprocedural #DSSmith @stewartgiles

Today is my stop on the #BlogTour for this brilliant new addition to the DS Smith series by Stewart Giles.  HARLEQUIN is book 5 in the series, a series that gets better book by book.  This is an adrenaline pumping read that will keep you turning the pages.

Harlequin (DS Jason Smith #5) by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON UK  US   AU

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.

Smith digs deeper and discovers the cause of this silence; the chain of events that led up to the vile murders that have shattered the hearts of the people of York.
This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller with an ending that 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 Witton 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 Harlequin:

‘Excellent and truly chilling murder mystery.’ – Maggie May
‘Another compelling detective thriller in the DS Jason Smith series.’ – Kindle Customer
‘A great writer and a great cast of characters inhabit these books. Well worth the time taken to read them.’ – Amazon Customer
‘What a fantastic book as the ending was not expected. This book is very hard to put down, really good storyline’ – Helen Green

My thoughts

This is book 5 in the DS Smith series and this review is for the reedited and updated digital version.

It is no secret that I am a big fan of Stewart Giles. His books tick a lot of boxes for me especially this Smith series. I suspect Smith could be an acquired taste and you have to read all the books in sequence to understand what he has been through and why he is taking so long to grow up. He is getting there.

As life has dealt him blow after blow he has picked himself back up with the aid of drink, cigarettes and now Marijuana. BUT he has also lost everybody who he cared about including his house. He is trying to put the house back together and his head when Whitton begs him to return to work as a 5 year old child has disappeared from his home.

We have a new DI in charge of the team and she isnt going to stand for Smith’s way of doing things in the same way Bob Chalmers did. But she has never come across anyone like Smith before either.

As more children go missing all clues point to the circus and the troupe have secrets of their own.

This is a very unique story. One that begs the question: Is evil genetic? The team encounter many problems along the course of the investigation and are left reeling when they join up the dots and realise who the killer is. But he hasn’t done yet. Can they catch him before it is too late?

This is a fast paced story that really gets the adrenaline flowing and the pages turning. Twists and turns with more shocks than a ghost train this is a riveting read that I couldn’t put down.

Definitely 5 stars from me

BLOG TOUR WRAP UP – Occam’s Razor by Stewart Giles #DSSmith #policeprocedural #detective #crimefiction @stewartgiles

Stewart and I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all the awesome Bloggers on the Blog Tour for OCCAM’S RAZOR. Once again you gave your time and expertise to help promote this book and we cant thank you enough. You are all SUPERSTARS xx

Black Books Blog

Whilst Smith and the team are investigating this another football player is gunned down in the middle of the street, and another has his son kidnapped.  Read more here

Ginger Book Geek

OMFG this was one seriously flipping fantastic rollercoaster ride of a read.  The author’s writing style is such that he manages to entice you into his web from the first word on the first page and before you know it you are hooked on the book with no chance of escape- not that I would want to escape from DS Jason Smith in any case.   Read more here

On the Shelf Reviews

Nothing like a bit of DS Smith to get you out of a reading slump! This is the fourth in the Smith series, while I suppose it can be read as a stand alone, I would suggest to read a few of the previous books (You can read my review of the previous book Ladybird here) just because you may miss some of the recurring story lines from the other novels.  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews 

There is plenty of action and twists and turns to keep the reader engaged until the explosive ending.  Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

Another Jason Smith novel and I looked forward to reading it, knowing that I was in line for a great time. I want to read each of these books quickly so that I get to the surprise ending but I also want to read them slowly so that I can enjoy every little clue and turn of phrase. Set in York (brilliant!), Jason is a detective sergeant with a team of detectives around him. I love their characters – they are all different and they each have their own little quirks which make them human and so real!  Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog 

I really enjoyed reading this story and it was almost like catching up with old friends!  The plot was well thought out and it has excellent characterisation as with the author’s previous books.  Read more here

So following on front the previous books I find myself reading another in the series, and diving more into the detectives past. We learn more of his personal history, and you start to feel like he’s someone you know in real life.  Read more here

My Review

Well the awesome Stewart Giles has done it again! Another absolutely gripping page turner to add to the very addictive DS Smith series. This review is for the newly updated digital version.

A footballer is killed after saving a penalty. 38000 witnesses and no motive! The team is struggling until Smith returns to work.

This is a very twisty turny read as Smith deals with yet another tragedy in his life and his past comes back to haunt him.

Be careful who you trust is the message behind this story and all the way through I kept changing my mind and bouncing around suspects and thoughts only to find out how wrong I was. People are messing with Smith’s head and his life is in danger. It is a roller coaster ride through the dark twisted minds of some evil people and they are happy to use whoever they can to achieve their goal.

It is difficult to review this book without spoilers so all I can really say is clear some time buy the book and settle down for an awesome page-turner that you will never forget.

I am loving this series the books get better and better If you like a good detective read with a unique story line and even more unique, complex characters then this is definitely for you.

5 golden stars from me.
