Another DCI Logan book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Characters are down to earth . Dark humour is scattered through the story. I didn't like the animal cruelty but it is only a story and it was a baddie who did it. good book. ( )

This is a compelling story with interesting characters. A young boy has been kidnapped, and the similarities between this case and kidnapping/murders from years before are striking. Was the wrong man arrested? Can they save this victim? My only complaint was that the details were a bit gorey for my taste at times. ( )

First time I have read this author and was very impressed. Wonderfully written book and great characters. Enjoyed DCI Jack Lambert's place in the story and his interaction with the other characters. I am going straight into book 2 in the series - Thicker Than Water. ( )

First time reading this author and must say I really enjoyed the story right from the start. Liked the Logan character immediately and his dry humour, good pace to the story kept me wanting more. Scottish Highlands is the setting where Logan has been assigned from his Glasgow base to lead the investigation into a copycat abduction of a serial killer locked away by Logan previously. Used the kindle ebook/narration format, and the Scottish accent of the narrator added to the enjoyment of the book. Will be looking for the second instalment of DCI Jack Logan. ( )

The first thing that stood out for me when reading A Litter of Bones was the amazing first line; it gives us a hint of the dry humour that JD Kirk uses throughout the book to accompany the seriousness of a missing children storyline. Without making light of a dire situation, I loved how JD Kirk injected some dry humour into his writing to fully flesh out his characters and keep the reader fully entertained. Although we are reading crime, we don't necessarily need it to be constant violent deaths and grisly crime scenes, so with spending time on character development JD Kirk gets the balance perfectly right in his amazing crime debut.

JD Kirk has hit a gold mine with his DCI Jack Logan character; he's got Owen Petrie, a serial killer, incarcerated in Carstairs, the notorious psychiatric hospital outside of Glasgow, but Logan still has unfinished business with 'Mister Whisper'. Logan is haunted by the abducted little boy whose body was never found and he refuses to let the case go cold. When there are disturbing similarities to a new abduction, the police wonder whether there's a copycat or whether the wrong man has been caught. Logan stands by his conviction and joins the taskforce in the hunt for the new missing boy, but he can't ignore the link to the previous abductions...how can this be happening again when the killer has already been caught?

I really loved this book; it's so intriguing and it had my brain whirring with so many questions and possibilities flying around my head. How is Petrie doing this? If not him, then who? Has the right man been caught in the first place? Is something supernatural going on? Perhaps an ethereal Mister Whisper conjured by saying his name in the mirror 3 times? It's so good when a book gets you thinking like that, it just shows how invested in the story you are, and I was 100% invested in this one. I felt as if I was reading with my eyes open as wide as they could be sometimes, almost in a permanent state of surprise, so it really shouldn't have come as a surprise when I did actually gasp out loud in shock at one point (luckily I was reading alone, otherwise that would have taken some explaining).

Having been a long-time fan of Billy Connolly, I couldn't mistake the essence of Scotland running through the prose; from the jaggy bushes (remember Billy's jaggedy-arse wool?) to the bone drenching smirr of the Scottish rain. I love these little homages to dialect that bring the book to life and make it memorable. I found this book so entirely engrossing that I can't think of a single criticism of it; I loved the characters, the setting and the storyline and I'm really looking forward to reading more DCI Logan books.

I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion. ( )
