What the bloggers thought about Deadly Friend:

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

The characters are extremely well-written and the reader can feel the evil exuding from Donny, to the extent where I had to occasionally put the book down and breathe! Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews 

The reader learns who the ‘friend’ is shortly into the story. Even knowing the ‘who’ doesn’t take away from the suspense. The author has taken a lot of time on character development and it pays off. Read more here

My first thought on finishing ‘Deadly Friend’ was ‘wowzers’ and then I wondered why the hell haven’t I come across K. D. Bloodworth before?  The author’s writing style is such that you can’t fail to be drawn into the story.  Each chapter ends in such a way that you simply have to read on and on.  I soon became addicted to reading this book and it’s easy to see why.  Read more here

Sassy Redhead Book Reviews

This was a great story. I did not read the first book, but this story filled in enough for me so that I was able to read this one on it’s own. The story was so well written that it really drew me in and made me feel as though I was a part of the story.  Read more here

The way the book was written made me want to keep reading it, even though I normally stop at the end of chapters I just had to keep reading this book to find out what happened next.  Read more here

Deadly Friend by KD Bloodworth

Available from Amazon

Following the horrific events in MRPERFECT.COM, Dawn thought she would never escape the demons that had haunted her every waking moment. But months of therapy finally freed her from the memories, allowing her and John to start their lives afresh with a new home in a new town. Slowly making new friends and gaining the confidence to take a part-time bar job, life was better than it had been for a long time.

Then, the past Dawn had tried so hard to forget caught up with her.

Awaking to her worst nightmare, beaten, bound and bloody, Dawn dared not move, fearing she would wake the monster in the room.

The man sleeping in the chair looked like her friend. Something was horribly wrong.



I lived in three different states before I started school, but then lived in the same house with my parents until I was nineteen. The wander lust took over and since then I have lived in nine different states and have lost count of how many different addresses I have owned.

Other than my family and dog, I have two other loves in life, photography and writing. The writing came to me later in life when I decided I could write some good fiction based on real life experiences. Truthfully, many of the things I have done most people would think I was making that stuff up. So, I started changing names and some places, adding a bit of spice, and my writing career began.

People often ask me if something in the story happened to me and all I can do is smile. Some secrets are best well kept.

This book is full of twists and turns. I pride myself in guessing the who-dun-its …. but it just didn’t happen with this one. The author had me running in circles.   Read more here

Ladybird is a really quick and compelling read which kept me guessing who the killer was almost until it was revealed.  Read more here

Ginger Book Geek

Bloody hell this was one hell of a dramatic, sometimes gory rollercoaster ride of a read.  ‘Ladybird’ is brilliantly written with a superb plot designed to grab your attention from the start.  Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Book Reviews

There are clues galore but I can never predict the killer, which is why I like these books so much. It’s a rip-roaring ride which I didn’t want to put down until I had finished it. Read more here

Debbie Hipster

Digging back into the world of Jason Smith it’s fast paced from the start. Now his friend the Ghoul is accused. The story has so many twists in the tale. It’s a race against time, as more and more deaths occur. Read more here

Ladybird (DS Jason Smith #3) by Stewart Giles

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

The Goul is arrested for Murder and Jason Smith is on sick leave.

Detective Sergeant Jason Smith is days away from the end of his sick leave after a case that almost cost him his life when he gets a call from an old friend. His friend has been arrested for the murder of a student. He wants Smith to investigate the murder and prove his innocence. Smith is persuaded return to work. The student was killed with a bread knife. Ladybirds were scattered on his dead body.

When another man is found dead with ladybirds on his body, Smith enlists the help of an insect doctor, the enigmatic DR Karen Wood, to try and understand the significance of the ladybirds. As Smith gets drawn closer to this mysterious woman and more and more men wind up dead with ladybirds on their bodies Smith quickly realises that Dr Wood is not who she seems to be.

Smith and his team unearth a terrible secret from twenty years earlier; somebody wants justice and, as more and more men die, Smith realises he is running out of time to find out who.

This is a fast-paced page-turner with twists and turns all the way to an ending you wont see coming.

If you like Police Procedurals, then this is a series you won’t want to miss.

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.

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.

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.
