The Loner, by Stewart Giles

A series of murders on the street of York. Very differents ways of death but only one motive and one killer. Can Smith and his colleagues prevent the murderer fulfilling his mission…?
The Loner is the 27th book in the DS Jason Smith series.
The covid lockdown is about to begin and a killer is trying to complete his murders. In the space of a few days, there are a number of deaths and the bodies all have post mortem stigmata mutilations. Smith has issues at home and work to contend with as well as the impending lockdown and catching a killer. His daugher is pregnant and a new police officer is making life tricky.
The pace of the book and the rapidity of the murders are relentless. Chapters are short and the narrative is dialogue-led so the action and plot races along. The murders are quite graphically described and we have some chapters that show us the killer’s viewpoint to increase the tension and anticipation.
I make no secret that I love this series of books. The writing style is engaging and the characters jump from the pages. Grisly descriptions are balanced by the banter between the police team and among Smith’s family.
The Loner is a tense and gripping police procedural and serial killer thriller.

THE LONER (Detective Jason Smith #27) by Stewart Giles
From bestselling author: Stewart Giles comes another brilliant addition to the Detective Jason Smith series.
Sometimes, it’s the quiet ones you need to be careful of.
Detective Jason Smith has always considered himself to be a bit of a loner. His colleagues would agree with him.
But Smith has no idea that another solitary soul is about to give him the worst nightmares of his life.
Another loner is killing people in York, and this one isn’t about to stop until he’s caught.
He kills indiscriminately, and he’s extremely good at it.
It’s going to take a loner to catch a loner, and Smith is the only man who can stop the worst serial killer York has ever seen.

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.
