Publisher's Summary

We all have our little secrets.

When the remains of a brutally murdered young woman are left hanging from the Glenfinnan Monument in the Highlands of Scotland, DCI Jack Logan and his Major Investigations team are dispatched to investigate.

At first, the case appears to be fairly open and shut. But, as evidence mounts, Jack uncovers some shocking truths about the victim that risk turning the investigation into a potentially explosive international incident.

With a billionaire baying for his blood, a former FBI agent breathing down his neck, and half the world's press watching his every move, it isn't the murderer that Jack's afraid might be the end of him.

It's the stress.

And don't get him started on the bloody tourists....

A Death Most Monumental is the eighth book from internationally best-selling author JD Kirk and is perfect for fans of Stuart Macbride, Ian Rankin, Chris Brookmyre, and Val McDermid.

Plots and laughs

Another cracking good read from this author. Even though the storylines involve crime and death, the well-rounded believable characters frequently provide some laugh-out-loud moments to lighten the mood. A top-notch narrator just adds polish to the performance. Love the Scots accent! Eagerly awaiting the next Audible production of A Snowball's Chance in Hell (already in Kindle version with 4.5 stars) and there's another book in the pipeline later in 2021.

Love Kirk and Angus

I love these stories have read them all except one must get on to it. This is so funny. It’s not so much about the murder but about the comedy. Read it.

Yes

Great addition to this series. Right amount of intrigue and humour and a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming. I’ve become invested in these characters and need more.

Hoon

Another good DCI Jack Logan mystery. This one seemed a bit more predictable, but still it had a twist that the author threw into the story. I enjoy this series. Jack and Hoon interact a bit more in part of the story; he has the most creative foul mouthed insults, I kinda look forward to see what he'll say next. I really enjoyed the ending.

Great team!

I love this team! JD Kirk writes well & adds some great humor to balance the weight of the "crimes." Great character development & Angus King couldn't narrate any better in my view! Love the series!

Another good one

I adore this series. Quirky and interesting characters, and another good plot. Though, to be honest, I’d listen to this series for the characters and Angus King’s narration alone. I’d listen to a story about these characters going to a birthday party and I’d listen to Angus King narrate anything - adore him. The only thing I would object to in this book is did the author need to make the Americans such complete a**holes? I mean I know we can be, but many of us are not so bad!

Another excellent page turner

I loved this book and audiobook. It kept me hooked and laughing out loud throughout. Great story and narration as usual. I get serious JD Kirk withdrawal syndrome whenever I finish until I read or listen to the next book. Thank you for the brilliant stories.

Brilliant Series!

Despite being a murder detective series, there is rarely a chapter that didn’t make me chuckle or bring a smile to my face. I hope there will be many more books in this series......I can’t wait to find out what happens to the Ford Fiesta! 😂 As ever, fantastic narration by Angus King - excellent portrayal of an arrogant rich Texan.

Excellent

I love these books this one came out just in time for Christmas. Although it landed 2 days before I caught the the dreaded Covid. Which by the way completely helped me through it. It kept me going as usual a brilliant storyline from JD and as always brilliant narration from Angus I couldn’t of been in a better place. Thank you for this and please keep them coming.

Genius, genius, genius

So enjoyable. Gritty but tears rolling at the antics of Hume. The new welcome anti-hero. What a ride this book is. Great characterisations, every one. Characters we care about and one in the eye for the FBI. If only there were 10 more DCI Logan adventures. Have to wait with bated breath. My new fave Tartan noir series.

Surpasses all that came before

I do not have the words to express just how much I loved this book, I was in stitches, literally howling with laughter at poor Mouf (Craig) in the gents toilets, and the viaduct train scene was almost as funny, admittedly, I was over tired (from staying up too late listening to this book) so may have just found it more funny that it was really was but if you've ever read any of this series you'll have to admit that DC Tyler Neish is the most adorably clownish character. The crime itself was cleverly orchestrated, the whole investigation was classic Logan, with possibly a little more foul language than usual, I'm not certain but it doesn't bother me, although I know it bothers some and perhaps those people should avoid this series altogether. Angus King gave his usual stunning performance, and we all need more Logan and we need it now.

Another excellent read

I love this series of books. The stories are fast paced, the narration is superb, and the banter between the main characters is hilarious at times. This is my favourite series of books and I can’t wait until Audible get the next two in the series.
