SMITH is the 1st book in the brilliant DS Smith detective series.  Read what the Bloggers thought:

On the Shelf Reviews

I really enjoyed this first full length Jason Smith novel! It’s one of those mysteries that you can really get stuck into! Like with Phobia the chapters are short and snappy with an incredibly fast pace but Stewart Giles still managed to weave an intricate narrative balancing almost three separate storylines and timelines.  Read more here


Linda Strong Book Reviews

There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader totally engrossed in the story. I look forward to following the further adventures of DS Smith.  Read more here

I have to be honest and say that there was not one thing that I disliked about the book.  I loved the fact that the majority of the book is set in York, which isn’t far from where I live. I loved the cast of characters although the Detective Sergeant who dislikes Smith needs a slap with a wet flip flop.    Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

The story is gripping with lots of shocks and surprises, pulling the reader in head first and not giving any time for the reader to come up for air. I read the whole book in two sittings – it would have been in one go but I had to sleep in the middle of it, falling asleep at 2.30am and waking at 5am to finish the story off. If you like a fast-paced story with believable characters and a well-crafted plot, then you will love this.  Read more here

I did guess who the murderer was about half way through, although I wasn’t 100% sure as I didn’t have a motive for them to have done it.  The ending was still very nail-biting as I wasn’t sure how it would end and whether the murderer would manage to escape or not.  The ending was very shocking but was very apt considering.  Read more here

Smith coverSMITH (DS Jason Smith #1) by Stewart Giles

Available from Amazon

‘The sleepy historical city of York is about to wake up’.
It is Christmas Day in York. A woman is found dead in her bed. A suicide note is found on her chest. It reads ‘I am so sorry Martin’. Hours later the police are called to a house a few miles away. A mother and her daughter have been brutally attacked; the mother is dead and the daughter is barely alive. The father is found shaking uncontrollably in the corner of the room. He is covered in blood but he is unharmed. His name is Martin Willow.
Detective Sergeant Jason Smith is put in charge of the investigation. After reaching dead end after dead end, Smith starts to put the pieces together and figures out that Martin Willow is innocent and the killer is still out there.
The little girl who was attacked on Christmas Day wakes from her coma and gives Smith a clue about the attacker; a piece of a song she heard directly before the attack. Smith then finds himself in a race against time to find this maniac before he kills again.

Stewart Giles Author PhotoStewart Giles – Author Bio

After reading English & Drama at three different English Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling and finally ended up in South Africa, where I still live. I enjoy the serene life running a boat shop on the banks of the Vaal Dam. I came up with the DS Jason Smith idea after my wife dropped a rather large speaker on my head. Whether it was intentional still remains a mystery. 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.
