Summary

Some scars never truly heal.

Life has been slowly improving for DCI Jack Logan lately. Happily settled down with the woman of his dreams and a dog he begrudgingly tolerates, things are finally going Jack’s way.

But could all that be about to change?

When a sadistic killer begins picking off victims on the streets of Inverness, Jack’s boss decides to bring in some outside help. But the new team member is an old flame from Jack’s past who isn’t quite ready to let him go.

And as the dead bodies rack up, the happily ever after that Jack has been building for himself might just be the next victim to fall....

City of Scars is the 14th books in the multimillion-selling DCI Logan Scottish crime fiction series. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, LJ Ross, and Stuart MacBride.

"With gripping, twisty-turny plots, unforgettable characters, and a rich vein of laugh-out-loud humour running throughout, if you haven't yet discovered the DCI Logan series, get started now!" (Thrilling Fiction)

Another master piece in MHO

I read and listen to a lot of detective novels, but I can say without doubt DCI Logan has become my firm favourite. twisting plot lines with strong male and female characters. unlike other authors Kirk gives his team life not just concentrate on the plot. but portraying the banter you get within close knit teams under stress.

City of Scars just continue to build on the strength of the series. Role on September for the teams next outing.

Very enjoyable

51 words in and I smiled! Brilliantly written, amazingly narrated. I almost wish I hadn’t started listening, just so I would hear it all again for the first time.

Thank you JD (Barry), thank you Angus - you guys rock

Another fantastic listen

JD Kirk cannot write his books fast enough. Roll on July for the next book in the Hoon series to ease the wait for the next Jack Logan book.

O.M.G! don't do this to me!!

Excellent as always! if you've not read/listened to this series yet, you're missing out!! Worth every credit! Can't wait to see what the gang get upto next! Without giving anything away, this installment will have you hooked from line 1! With all the usual laughs, but notwithstanding the touchingly real moments along the way! I literally wanted to stop listening at some points because I didn't wanna hear any bad things happen to characters I've become invested in! JD/Barry doesn't dissapoint and Angus brings them all to life! Cracking good read..... I'm still laughing at Tyler's unique flu remedies! 🤣

Fabulous - again!

I love this series and all the characters in this police drama procedural. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes serious, sometimes dangerous, sometimes gory. The development and interactions are superbly crafted and it is excellently narrated. I like the connection with Hoon - another series

Perfection….Yet again.

I was eagerly waiting for this book when I finished Come Hell or High Water. And my good I was not disappointed. This was an absolute joy to listen to, as ever. The story was great, plenty of twists and turns that keep you guessing. And still filled with so much humour. I laughed out loud countless time within the first few chapters and the hilarity continued throughout the whole book.. JD knows how to write a hell of a book. He is amazing. And of course Angus King and his amazing narration. His voice makes every book in this series (and the Hoon books) what they are. He and JD are a force to be reckoned with!!! I am impatiently waiting for the 3rd Hoon book in July. Until then I might just listen to this series all over again!!!

This is excellent. We start off with "a day in the life of a detective" which is very funny. The author really trots out her writing talent.
Then we get to the business of hunting for a murderer. All is as expected to police procedural work. And, a mystery guest from
Jack's past is assigned to assist the team and, oh- the humor continues as she outrageously,
rocks the statis quo.
Just when it seems we're.done.... some new twist leaps out and we"re off.
A very, very good addition to JD Kirk's
series with these folks.

Another winner for Logan

A series that has reached a comfortable maturity, with unforgettable characters and just the right helping of humour along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, hot on the heels of the (brilliant) latest instalment of the Bob Hoon series, a double helping of JD Kirk is always a good thing!

A must read

Another amazing entry from JDKirk. Serious crime with a wonderful down to earth twist. The narration could not be any better. Angus king brings every character to so much life it’s incredible. A true must read.

One of the best in the series!

Chock full of laughs and awesome characters, this installment kept me engaged throughout. The underlying story kept me guessing and Jack and the gang never fail to entertain. Bring on #14!

JD Kirk never disappoints! Another great one.

I look so forward to the next in the DCI Logan series and now Hoon- that my only disappointments come from waiting for next one. Loved this one and loved how as a reader we heard Angus King perform so much more relating to the characters personal lives. Time well spent.

Loved it, as usual!

This is one of my favorite series and this entry was just as good as expected! Love the balance of humor and darkness, good characters and an interesting crime mystery.
