Demons- Stewart Giles- Crime

Oooh!!! Another read from Stewart that I couldn’t put down! A man is found murdered
with a knife in his chest. It is later discovered that the cause of death was something
rather more sinister. DS Jason Smith is on the case when he should have been having
the weekend off with his wife and daughter but as ever work comes first. He has a nose
for when things are not as they first appear and it takes him a while to convince others
until they can see his point of view and what appears obvious. His wife is a DC and so
gets about his work, what she doesn’t get is when he starts doing things completely
out of character and puts not only his marriage in jeopardy but his career as well.
One murder leads to another with a similar M.O and messages about demons.
Who and why? I love Stewarts books. You know you have hit gold when the pages
magically turn and the real world falls away. Characters you easily take to and a
plot to keep the grey matter active- just as I like it. One stunning, totally gripping read.

Jason Smith series. ‘Forgive me father, for I have sinned.’ Someone is killing people in York. All of the victims share a secret that the murderer is
somehow aware of and all of them receive an identical message after they are killed. ‘God has forgiven you your sins, but He could not rid you of your demons. So I have taken
them for you.’ Detective Sergeant Jason Smith heads up the most draining investigation he’s ever come
across. Coming face to face with demons of his own, will this be the case that finally

historic county of Yorkshire. York Minster and a variety of cultural and sporting activities
make it a popular tourist destination. THE DETECTIVE 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 that doesn’t always mean following orders and procedures. However, he does get results.

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. In 2014 Ann dropped a rather large speaker on my head and 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 was published and soon hit the number one spot in Australia. The second in the series, The Perfect Murder did just as well. I continued to self-publish the Smith series and Unworthy hit the shelves in 2018 with amazing results. I therefore made the decision to self-publish The Backpacker which is book 3 in the Detective Harriet Taylor series which was published in July 2018. After The Backpacker I had an idea for a totally new start to a series – a collaboration between the Smith and Harriet thrillers and The Enigma was born. It brings together the broody, enigmatic Jason Smith and the more level-headed Harriet Taylor. Miranda is something totally different. A stand-alone psychological thriller, it is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before. Website: Twitter: @stewartgiles Facebook:
