Today I am very pleased to be opening the blog tour for Stewart Giles’ brand new, self-published book Unworthy.
About the Book
DS Jason Smith is dragged away from paternity leave when a woman is killed with her baby in the next room. When more women with children are brutally murdered, Smith discovers that they all have something in common – they all share a secret. When he finds out that the mother of his own child is on this list of ‘Unworthy’ women, he finds himself in a race against time to stop the killer before his whole world comes crashing down around him.
The book starts off quite dramatically with the reader being told that someone from a family of three is going to be dead within a week. From here on in the murder count rises and gets very personal for DS Smith as his partner is dragged into the story as she is on a hit-list.
Even though this isn’t the first book in the series it does work very well on it’s own, it is the first in the DS Smith series of books I have read and I caught up with the back story very quickly.
I have previously read two books from Stewart’s newest series – The Beekeeper and Perfect Murder and loved them so couldn’t wait to read this one. The main difference between this series and the other one is that this is a much darker series, with a lot less of the comedic moments which those two books had.
The story follows Jason as he tries to uncover the serial killer going round murdering women who he deems are unworthy when things get very personal as his partner ends up on the list..
It was a very easy read, which I finished in two sittings as I didn’t really want to put it down. The story had enough intrigue and twists in it to keep me guessing all the way through as to whether he would catch the killer and save his partner from being the killer’s latest victim.

About the Author
After reading English & Drama at three different English Universities and graduating from none of them, I set off travelling and finally ended up in South Africa, where I still live. I enjoy the serene life running a boat shop on the banks of the Vaal Dam. I came up with the DS Jason Smith idea after my wife dropped a rather large speaker on my head. Whether it was intentional still remains a mystery. Smith, the first in the series was finished in September 2013 and was closely followed by Boomerang and Ladybird. Occam’s Razor, Harlequin and Phobia (a series of short stories detailing Smith’s early life) were all completed in one hazy 365 days and Selene was done and dusted a few months later.
