From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new addition to the popular Detective 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 sends Smith over the edge?
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 that doesn’t always mean following orders and procedures. However, he does get results.
This is the latest release in the Detective Jason Smith series and I did a little squeal of excitement when it landed on my Kindle, after reading the blurb I couldn’t wait to get started on the book – and it was well worth the wait – I thought it was fantastic!!
I thought that the plot for this instalment was brilliant, it was well written and it was set at a great pace too, I loved that something happened in each chapter and there was plenty to keep my full attention and to keep me fully engaged too.
I love the characters in this series too and in this one it was good to see the other team members get slightly larger parts too.
I did guess what was going to happen in the book towards the middle and did think and mutter out loud, oh you hadn’t better, you complete idiot (to put it mildly), so now I just have to wait for the next book in the series to come out to see how Smith gets himself out of the mess that he has gotten himself in too!! The series is growing from strength to strength.
It is 5 stars from me for this one without hesitation – It had me hooked from the outset right through to the end – it was an additive, fast paced, thrilling read!!

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.
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.
