Publisher's Summary

After a violent home invasion in the remote wilds of Glen Coe leaves a family of four dead, DCI Jack Logan and his team are brought in to lead the manhunt.

But, when one of the victims is revealed to be one half of legendary 1980s Glasgow-based comedy double act, Neeps & Tatties, Logan is forced to leave the Highlands and head back to his old stomping ground. 

He may have spent his career dealing with the worst humanity has to offer, but to find out who killed Archie Tatties and his family, Logan will have to confront his most terrifying challenge yet - the seedy world of Scottish light entertainment. 

An Isolated Incident is the eleventh book in JD Kirk’s internationally best-selling DCI Logan crime-fiction series. Perfect for fans of Chris Brookmyre, Stuart Macbride, and Alex Smith.

Ah. A new JD Kirk, perfect, perfect. perfect to launch summer '21. I
love the growth of the characters
from the previous books in the series.
Glasgow- not so much- but the totality of this book has me hooked
more than ever. Guess I'm a paper/
audio soap opera groupie.
These are stand alone mysteries. If you are just joining us on the Kirk Fan Club bus you have the rare pleasure of picking up all the previous books.

Complex and satisfying

The DCI Logan series is a "must buy" for me---both book and audio. This latest did not disappoint. A gruesome and tragic set of circumstances sets Logan on the road to Glasgow, his old stomping grounds, with DC Tyler Niesh in tow. Their moments together are absolutely golden, brought to life by the superlative narration of Angus King. Old frenemies are encountered along the way, and Bob Hoon is sprinkled over it like pepper on a serving of good ol' neeps and tatties, as the team solves the case.

Loved it

I loved everything about it. Narration is great. I love the different voices ,it brings the story to life. I love a book that has a great team working together.I laughed and yet,I was still on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who was the killer. For me,I loved the book and the narrator.

Much foul language

I could not listen to this past the 2nd chapter because of so much bad language. Also the Irish accent was hard to understand.

Love this series!

I can't get enough of this series. The characters are like family and the stories keep you guessing.
The narrator is EXCELLENT! He has narrated the whole series and has different voices for the characters so you know which character is speaking.

Exciting and funny!

I love this series as the stories just get better and better! The Scottish accent intrigues me and the banter among the characters is most entertaining. The juxtaposition of that and the grisly murders being solved in such unexpected but plausible ways makes for a superbly entertaining read/listen!

another good story in the series

the narration on the story was excellent as usual the story itself had some nice twists and turns unfortunately for me it still has one annoying character that featured strongly in the story.
it is worth a listen you just have to have reasonable expectations

Why hasn’t this been developed into a TV series?

I love the manner in which these characters have been developed during the series of books, a wonderful balance of suspense and humour. Seems absolutely right for a TV series!

Another triumph

This series just gets better and better. Am now familiar with the characters of this police team. I still laugh out loud at some of the conversations. The narration is excellent and the writer has such an eye for the detail of ordinary life (and murder)!. Enjoying the growing relationship between Logan and Siobhan. I just love all of it

Gets better with each book

With each DCILogan book, I become more and more involved with these incredible group of characters. The actual crime they are investing, this one particularly good, is secondary to the fantastic world of characters Kirk has developed. Absolutely guaranteed to laugh out loud at least a dozen times, and a blossoming relationship in this latest book, genuinely had me feeling quite emotional. Brilliant series of books

Another fantastic addition to the series.

Fantastic story, and characters, highly amusing in parts.
Cannot recommend this series enough. JD Kirk is now one of my favourite authors. Recommend his stand alone Bob Hoon series to.

Appalling

This was the first of this book series I had listened to and while the storyline appeared to be good, the fact that virtually every other word was foul language and swearing, totally put me off from listening any further. I have no objection to swearing in context, but this was ridiculous. I have always been told that most people swear because they are too lazy to find a more appropriate word, so the author is depicted in a very poor light. I thought it would be more like the DCI Gillard books by Nick Louth which I really enjoyed, but it was a total waste of money.

More excellent writing!

It has taken me until the 11th book to review JD Kirk, because as I finished other ones, another volume beckoned. As volume 12 is not yet written (hurry up, JD Kirk), thus…
In this novel we meet the assorted team members dealing with a hideous crime, personal crises and a montage of nasties from the criminal underworld. The banter is as wonderful as ever, the cups of tea frequent as demanded, and the food as bad as ever, although lunch at the Pig bar hits new lows with descriptions that stay long after the book is finished.
Recommended.
Oh, and the Scottish words are amazing. Bad weather is ‘dreek’. Glorious. Oh, and read the other ten books.

Love this

I love this series. It’s actually quite strange with the characters so funny at times. The detectives are quite loud and I do laugh a lot. Angus King has been doing this series for ever so he knows the characters well.
Want another one soon.

Addicted

The development of characters and relationships in this series has me addicted. The job interview for Hoon had me laughing until I cried. The narrator is absolutely fantastic and nails all the characters each and every time. The storyline is solid, I definitely didn’t pick the killer until the end, but I admit I am listening more for what is happening with each character, the murder plot is now Secondary for me.

Terrible!

This series is usually excellent but this book really should not have been published. All the usual witty dialogue has been replaced by predictable cliche. The storyline is plodding and thin. Angus King puts in a brilliant effort trying to bring it alive but to no avail.
