Author of the DS Jason Smith and DC Harriet Taylor series of novels
I grew up in the north-east of England and after reading English & Drama at three different English Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling with my future wife, Ann.
We finally settled in South Africa, where we still live. I own a boat shop by the Vaal Dam and life couldn’t be more peaceful.
I came up with the DS Jason Smith idea after my wife dropped a rather large speaker on my head. Whether this was intentional still remains a mystery.
DS Jason Smith
Smith, the first in the series was finished in September 2013 and was closely followed by Boomerang and Ladybird. Occam’s Razor, Harlequin and Phobia (a series of short stories detailing Smith’s early life) were all completed in one hazy 365 days and Selene was done and dusted a few months later. Horsemen, the seventh in the DS Smith thriller series is out now as is Unworthy
DC Harriet Taylor
The Beekeeper, a departure from the DS Smith series and The Perfect Murder have been released through Joffe Book, London. The Backpacker, the third in that seriess will be out soon.
“There is still plenty of life in both DS Smith and DC Taylor and expect to see a lot more of them in the future.”
“It is a finely crafted semi psychological suspense and thriller. I was just so impressed with the story-line and the craftiness of the killer. The way the book was written you constantly doubt yourself whether your suspect is the right one.”
“I have said it before and I will say it again. There is just that something extra in a well written British who-dunnit. I am most definitely going to be on the lookout for more books by Stewart Giles. He is an author to keep an eye on.”
“This book is highly recommended for for those who like British suspense and thrillers.”
“Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with the opportunity to read and review this book.”
