Today I am very excited to be closing the blog tour for Stewart Giles latest book Malice on the Island, which is book 4 in his newest series featuring DI Liam O’Reilly.
About the book
Malice on the Island (Detective Liam O’Reilly book 4)
A FEUDING FAMILY AND A DEADLY SECRET.
Nobody knows when it first started.
The tranquil island of Guernsey is suddenly besieged by a wave of malice. Shops are getting set alight, houses are being sprayed with paint and friends are no longer sure if their neighbours are who they thought they were.
When a woman is found dead, covered head to toe in paint outside a house covered in identical paint Detective Liam O’Reilly is brought into the midst. O’Reilly soon realises this is much more than a simple case of murder. And when more bodies are found O’Reilly starts to wonder if he made the right decision in coming to the Island.
This is a crime mystery you won’t want to miss.
Perfect for fans of Joy Ellis and LJ Ross.

THE MIRANDA TRILOGY (psychological thrillers)
This is book 4 in the series so I would advise reading the other books first, although this can be read as a standalone of you so wish.
The book starts off with a fire at a restaurant and the owner blaming the family they have been feuding with for over a 100 years. The restaurant owner is Michael Simon and shortly after we find his fiance has been murdered.
This murder then brings in O’Reilly as he investigates and has to dig into what the two families are hiding, which is made trickier by the fact that neither side want to tell him anything.
The book further develops O’Reilly character and his relationship with his colleagues and daughter bring in some nice moments and really adds to the story.
The story gets into a lot of detail about family feuds and progresses nice and quickly with the ending coming as a surprise and left me wanting more from my second best detective after Jason Smith.
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 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 and there are now 14 books including the introduction: Phobia, with book 15 coming soon. In addition I have an new series featuring an Irish detective who relocated to Guernsey. The first 4 books in the Detective Liam O’Reilly series are now available.
