“Stewart Giles does it again”

“Once again, Stewart Giles delivers an instantly gripping read right from the word go. The DS Smith series is absolutely awesome, with horseman being the best one yet, can’t wait for the new one. If you like gritty detective dramas with twists that keep you guessing till the end, the DS Smith series should definitely be in your library. Wouldn’t be at all surprised if this is the next big drama on TV.”

“Great follow up to

The Beekeeper”

I’m a great fan of the Jason Smith novels so I looked forward to a new character – Harriet Taylor doesn’t disappoint. The plot was well thought out, characters are developing nicely & it’s easy to imagine the next installment.
