Publisher's summary

Just when he thought he was out....

Burdened by guilt over the trauma recently inflicted on his friends and colleagues, former-Detective Chief Inspector Jack Logan has spent the past nine months living in self-imposed exile.

When a mother and her young daughter are the victims of a double murder staged to look like suicide, Logan is dragged back to help hunt down and catch a brutal, calculating killer.

But the world has moved on without him. To do what needs to be done, Logan must first find his place among old friends and new enemies before the killer strikes again, and a whole Highland community tears itself apart.

Maybe early retirement wasn't such a bad idea, after all....

The Big Man Upstairs is the seventh novel in the internationally best-selling DCI Jack Logan Scottish crime fiction series, and perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, and Stuart MacBride.

Laugh out loud funny!

I love these books! Angus King puts a movie in my head as I listen and chapter 31 had me had me gasping for breath! Do yourself a favor and start with book 1, you will not be able to stop! Very well done!

Trust the author!

Wooooot! Okay per my last review I should have known! ( I am intentionally being cryptic as I don’t like to spoil things.) This is one of my favorite series of all time. The attention to detail even between books is ART. 🥰🤘🤌

Ah, the "big man"

DCI Logan returns from his island sojourn, and must adapt to a new DSup, and to rebuilding some singed bridges with his team. Terrible murders (and they are) are to be solved, Ben needs to be helped with the loss of his Alice, and how will Tyler and Sinead ever get over seeing a bad case of arrested development (a suspect) in a BDSM situation. Not to mention Logan has to pass the "bleep test" to cement his return to duty. A gripping and fun outing, and the narration by Angus King is just a delight throughout. He is superb, and makes these characters come alive.

Fast moving story, it's over before I realize it!

Another excellent crime thriller by JD Kirk. I have fallen in love with all the main characters. Although there's always a murder, there is great humor, too! I am going through all these Logan books in order. what a treat!
