Fire on the Island, by Stewart Giles

Fire on the Island book cover48 drones carrying explosives hover over Guernsey. Luckily there are only 5 fatalities. Liam O’Reilly abandons his honeymoon to start investigating and discovers a link between 4 of the victims…
Fire on the Island is the 13th book in the DI O’Reilly series. There are some mentions of earlier cases but no spoilers.
One teenager is killed accidentally but Liam is convinced that the other 4 victims were deliberately targeted by a cold blooded killer intent on revenge. His investigation discovers that they had a connection but then he needs to work out who had motive and opportunity.
As always with this series, Liam has run ins with colleagues and the press. I love the cheeky insubordinate side to his personality that he uses to get his own way. Even though he has only just got married, there was less of his romantic relationship featured in this book as he is so focussed on the case.
The style of writing is easy to read and dialogue led. Short chapters push the plot along speedily and there were plenty of twists and dramatic scenes to make me read faster and faster.
Fire on the Island is full of drama and action, and is a great addition to the series.

FIRE ON THE ISLAND (Detective Liam O’Reilly #13) by Stewart Giles
From bestselling author: Stewart Giles comes another brilliant addition to the Detective Liam O’Reilly series.
In the evening of the 4th of July 2019 four dozen drones descend on Guernsey, and the peaceful island is ablaze in minutes. 48 individual bombs have caused destruction in all four corners of the island.
Detective Inspector Liam O’Reilly takes this extremely personally. He was enjoying his honeymoon in the far north of the island at the time.
As the fire on the island continues to burn, O’Reilly can’t sit back and wait for it to die down. He needs answers to why this happened on the island he now calls home.
But the truth is going to take him to hell and back.
The fire on the island is only the start: this is a case that O’Reilly may never recover from.
What readers are saying about FIRE ON THE ISLAND:
OH MY GOD, the research gone into this book is remarkable, very unstable reading, and gripped me well in. Well done! Once again this author has delivered to me another mind-blowing top read that I just could not put down reading it in a full day. Watch out for a lot of harrowing chapters. Could not fault it one bit. And yes I want more in this series. – Booklover Bev
Stewart does it every time. He produces a book that I can’t put down with twists and turns that keep the pages ever turning. There’s something really special about his writing that engages the reader right the way through. Liam is a very likeable character and has steely determination to achieve justice- sometimes in his own inimitable way, A thoroughly enjoyable read that I raced through. – Misfits Farm
Plenty of twists and turns and a lot of red herrings all contributed to make this a thrilling read.  Revenge, lies, smuggling and hate all play a part and we learn more about the regular characters while being introduced to new ones which makes for a well-rounded story. – Amazon Reviewer
Liam is my favourite character but his team of DC Katie Owen, DS Will Skinner and DC Andy Stone, add so much to the mix. Another great read in this series. Plenty of humour, lots of it from Liam’s interaction with DC Andy Stone. Andy is his daughter, Assumpta’s, partner. Liam gets so riled when Andy is around. Liam doesn’t have much tolerance for some people, in this book it is DCI Urban from the Guernsey Border Agency that sets him off, and I end up reading with a smile on my face. I have loved all the books in this series, and this is no exception. – Maureen
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.
