Publisher's Summary

She left him for dead. Now, he’s back to repay the favor.

DCI Jack Logan should’ve known things were going too well. Genuinely happy for the first time in years, Jack has almost fooled himself into believing that the world is a decent place.

But when the discovery of a mutilated body kicks off a series of grisly murders, Jack’s dream of a peaceful life rapidly begins to crumble around him.

With friends in danger and enemies begging for his help, Jack must risk everything to protect the final would-be victim and stop the most monstrous killer he’s ever faced.

And to do that, sacrifices will have to be made....

Colder than the Grave is the 12th novel in the number one best-selling DCI Jack Logan series set in the Highlands of Scotland. Perfect for fans of Stuart Macbride, Chris Brookmyre, Ian Rankin, and LJ Ross.

Excellent finish to the series!!

This was one of the best books in the series. Loads of humor and a fast-paced story. While I’m said to see the end of the DCI Jack Logan series, I’m excited to start the Bob Hoon series. Bob is one of the funniest characters in this series. Bravo to Angus King, my favorite narrator of all times. The way he does the voices in this series is hilarious, giving each character a distinct personality.

I bought this as soon as I saw it was a new title by JD Kirk. I love following all the characters
in this series. It would be fun for you to buy books you may have missed in the series, esp book 1.

Highly recommended murder mystery police procedural

Although this fictional novel is a murder mystery police procedural, the characters were funny and the author created a light joking feel between them. Also the characters were very memorable and well fleshed out. I enjoyed it very much. Will be looking for more from the same author.

Yet another gritty, edge-of-your-seat murder spree

I love the Jack Logan series of mysteries. Really love them. And once I heard one performed by Angus King, it ruined me for reading them myself. The characters and the Scottish accent just shine in his narration. I would suggest reading the series in order so that the background stories and past crimes make more sense to you. Plus, they are all great. The murders are gritty and sometimes bloody - no cozy mysteries here, but the characters are perfect and there is enough humor and banter between the detectives to make it a great story. In this book, the Iceman character returns, but with lots of unexpected twists and turns. The pace is fast and the length just right. There is even a rascal of a puppy who helps solve the case but he mainly poops on the floor. As usual, Jack Logan approaches the case, which gets personal, like a bulldozer and flattens anybody who gets in his way. A must read!

JD Kirk and Angus King Rock

This has become my favorite series. I recommend reading the series in order since the characters are unique. Belly laughs and terror in each book. Treat yourself to a great listening experience.

The best yet

Sat up all night with this one on release day and I wasn’t disappointed. Kirk excels himself tying up ends from previous books and taking you from crying with laughter to …. Well, just crying.
Absolutely brilliant.

I prefer the audio books because the narrator really brings it alive.
Highly recommended

FANTASTIC!!

Brilliant writing as always from JD Kirk. The story was compelling from the start. I love how everything all linked together.

Brilliant narration as always by Angus King, he does a great job of bringing the characters off the page into the "real" world.

Fast paced, gripping with grit and humour throughout.

Brilliant book, as usual with this series.

This series gets better with every book. The usual characters are brilliant, and the bits of this book introducing the puppy are laugh out loud. The narration is exceptional as usual with Angus King. Would have given a 10/10 were that possible,

Another brilliant episode

Of course if you've read the other books you know where this is going from the start. There are no surprises. It's the interplay between the characters and the brilliant narration that makes this book such a joy.

J D Kirk never fails to make me use all my senses…. I laugh, I cry, I am horrified, and moved to such happiness to have made such great friends. Absolutely brilliant entertainment! And the narrator needs a medal too!

Absolute favourite narrator and top 3 series

I love everything about this series. Characters have been so well developed, the humour, the thrills and spills, the strength of unity amongst them and the ability to feel very much like you’re there or want to be (when the danger is over!). Please keep them coming, this one I couldn’t stretch out and was done in a day. I could listen to Angus King all day and all night,

Superb--hurry up with the next one JD Kirk!

This series is getting better. Love the team -- and new dog. Love the jokes, Love Angus King.

Only book in the series i didn't like was the Mr Whisper episode, which derailed Jack's career. Better when the team's on form! In this one two of the team are in danger but of course they all work together brilliantly to pull off a spectacular ending.

i fear that the introduction of a new series focused on the worst character (Hoon) may slow down output on this series. Please get back to work on the next Logan book, JDK!

The narration shines through

I love DCI Logan, and I would listen to anything narrated by Angus King, but the story line let’s this book down a little. After everyone he cared about was targeted by Mr Whisper some books back, with the team still dealing with the aftermath, it seems a bit much, and less than believable, to have a similar situation in Book 12. I’d rather a mystery where the police and forensic agencies are the investigators, not the victims. Despite that, whilst ever Angus King is voicing Jack, and Jack remains Jack, I’ll keep listening, be it Book 12, or Book 22. Great characters, made live by the stellar narration.

I just love these books. I listened to the first 11 one after the other having discovered the series by chance and was delighted to see the 12th book become available. Great story and very much enjoy the humour that is intertwined throughout the twists and turns. Roll on the next one.

Jd Kirk does it again!

Hilarious, absorbing and once again a great story! JD Kirk is by far my favourite author and Angus King’s intimate understanding of each character and embodiment of them often makes you forget he is the only one narrating! The best duo on audible by far! The only disappointment is the agonising wait for the next book!!!
