A Litter of Bones Hardcover – 12 October 2020
Enhance your purchase
A missing child. A tormented detective. A ticking clock.
Ten years ago, DCI Jack Logan stopped the serial child-killer dubbed 'Mister Whisper,' earning himself a commendation, a drinking problem, and a broken marriage in the process.
Now, he spends his days working in Glasgow's Major Investigations Team, and his nights reliving the horrors of what he saw.
And what he did.
When another child disappears a hundred miles north in the Highlands, Jack is sent to lead the investigation and bring the boy home.
But as similarities between the two cases grow, could it be that Jack caught the wrong man all those years ago?
And, if so, is the real Mister Whisper about to claim his fourth victim?
A Litter of Bones is the explosive debut crime thriller novel from Amazon number one bestselling author, JD Kirk, an exciting new voice in Scottish crime fiction. Perfect for fans of L.J. Ross, Ian Rankin, Chris Brookmyre, and Stuart Macbride.

Thank you, Mr Kirk for such a great read, which is why quickly bought book 2 in the series: "Thicker than Water".
An author I will be keen to follow.
I enjoyed this first novel, plenty of action, and humility, good to read a book where DCI admits his mistake.
I look forward to reading some more soon.

I’ve pre ordered the next Logan novel and really hope it’s as good as the first.
Well, A Litter of Bones, ticked every box multiple times. I love this author's style, and as it's his first crime novel he's done more than a first class job. The characters are well thought out and diverse, the protagonist DCI Jack Logan is an absolute dream of a character. He doesn't suffer fool's gladly, doesn't always play by the rules, justice is paramount, and his team are an unknown quantity, as he's bought into cover a crime in up in the Highlands!
An intriguing introduction to the plot, moves quickly, to pull you in with highs and lows and lots of hold your breath moments. Heart stopping then pulse racing moments throughout, giving your system a thrilling workout. It's a cleverly written storyline that's different, parts you don't see coming. Written in such away, the author makes you feel like your watching from inside the book.
The dialogue and banter throughout this book, is just wonderful including some brilliantly funny quips!
I honestly can't recommend this book highly enough, it's a fabulous first, of I hope many more books to this series featuring the wonderful irrepressible DCI Jack Logan!
Book 2 released on 30th June can't wait!
