From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes book 2 in the very popular DS Jason Smith and DC Harriet Taylor series.
Brandon Stone is doing his first Accelerated Free Fall Skydive. He has done the training and his instructors are with him so nothing can go wrong…. Can it? A double malfunction and Brandon is staring death in the face. A very rare accident. Or is it?
Jason is returning to work after 3 months recovering from injuries at the hands of Boronov. Light duties? Not if Jason can help it.
DC Harriet Taylor is taking a well deserved holiday with Jon Finch that includes tandem skydiving. Out of all the planes in the country they were on the same one as Brandon.
With a detective as a witness this should be an easy case to solve. Wrong! Jason and the team need all the help they can get to unravel the lies and find the clues before more bodies turn up.
This is a gripping story with twists, turns and intrigue all the way through. A fast moving page-turner you will not be able to put down.
I love this author’s writing style so I was delighted to see that he had a new release, Dropzone and couldn’t wait to get started on it after seeing a few excellent reviews from other readers – well I have now read the book and they were so right in their praise!!
I thought that it was a brilliant story and so well written, the author has a natural writing ability and his books are addictive, this one was no different and I was hooked by the first few pages. His writing style makes the books a very easy read and I settled in and read this one in just a few hours. It is very, very good!!
The plot is great and I know from reading about the author that he himself is a skydiving fan so he makes the first few chapters very realistic and you almost get to feel what Brandon is going through, not a way I would want to go if you give me a choice and he has certainly put me off skydiving!!
The flow for the book is great and I had gone from cover to cover before I even realised and I loved that I was able to catch up with DC Harriet Taylor too, although I might be a bit controversial here and say that the book would have been just as good without her in it!
It is five stars from me again, this is possibly my favourite DS Smith book so far and can’t wait for his next release!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
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 there are plenty more to come.
Unworthy, the ninth Smith instalment was followed by a totally new start to a series – a collaboration between the Smith and Harriet thrillers. Entitled The Enigma, 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. Dropzone, book 2 in the Smith/Harriet series is now available and the 10th Smith instalment will be released later in the year.
