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.

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.

Excellent Listen

I loved listening to this book. He is a brilliant author and I loved the twists and turns, but most of all I love the narrators accent.
Really laughed throughout this audible book. I love how JD Kirk has such a wonderful sense of humour. I am addicted and now I will listen to the next one :)

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.

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.

Worth the wait, as usual!!

“Shogon”— Shona and Logan— will prevail !! Romance aside, Logan and the team do not disappoint and Mr. King’s narration stays spot on! I totally love this series and can not wait for the next.
All can stand alone on their own merits— the stories are dramatic enough, tense enough, funny and stick to procedural well— but I would recommend reading them in order. The characters are well thought out and interesting. Does not disappoint.!

Another Great One!

I can always count on the Logan series to be a wicked fun ride. I enjoy all the colorful characters and yes the creative cussing...if it offends you then you aren't willing to the harsh reality of real people & life. Me, I laugh at its creativity. Always a riveting crime storyline, I can't wait for the next one.

My favorite international crime series

JD Kirk writes about rather dark crimes- but the character development is so good, the humor and sarcasm so on point - that the stories are thoroughly enjoyable. Paired with excellent narration by angus king, these stories always deliver. Already looking forward to the next.

Why do I keep reading these!!

The last few books in this series have been very disappointing. They are 80% filler and 20% actual story about the case. This book had an entire chapter devoted to one character trying to figure out an iPad! No more of these for me. Angus King did a great job reading as always though.

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

disappointing

I'm a massive JD Kirk fan and love the character DCI Jack Logan but this was a bit of a let down for me and had less depth, and content as previous books. hope the next book is better

I love these books so funny as well as serious. Angus always nails it as the narrator. Don’t know what I’m going to do with myself until the next one comes out please write faster 😂😂😂
