The Viaduct


THE VIADUCT by Stewart Giles- Crime

Oh wow! A darker tale in parts and one I couldn't put down. A young girl has been found beneath a viaduct with a suicide note in her pocket. Her mother insists that its not her handwriting and that she wouldn't commit suicide. On the top of the bridge one of Smith’s team has found what appears to be a circle associated with the darker side of life- black magic. When another girl is found and traces of a previously unknown substance are found at the post mortems, the team know there is something incredibly sinister going on. Who is doing this and why?

OMG! I love Stewart’s book and DS Smith but this one takes it to a whole new level. I knew Jason was tenacious and determined but wow, oh wow and every other related superlative. A book where I feel much research has been done and comes through very well. Of loyalty and love, of strength and resoluteness. A book I just have to give my special 5**- those that blow me away and have that something extra. Wow doesn't cover this. I'm stunned.

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 brought together the broody, enigmatic Jason Smith and the more level-headed Harriet Taylor. The Miranda trilogy is something totally different. A psychological thriller trilogy. It is a real departure from anything else I’ve written before. The Detective Jason Smith series continues to grow. I also have another series featuring an Irish detective who relocated to Guernsey, the Detective Liam O’Reilly series. There are also 3 stand alone novels.
