My Thoughts:
I've read JD Kirk 's Robert Hoon Thriller series first before I started reading this book. I understand that this series came first and that Hoon was the off-shoot story. However, I love Hoon so much that I wanted to read more of this author. I just hope that I haven't messed up royally by reading Hoon first before the DCI Logan series.

The main protagonist is DCI Logan and he is supposed to be the expert in the case having collared the original Mister Whisper. If it was Lt. Eve Dallas of the In Death series by JD Robb , then it would only be Dallas and Dallas alone who would know, catch and apprehend the perpetrator. Not the case here. Logan might be the main protagonist, but catching the perpetrator is a team effort. I love the In Death series! But I like the "team effort" better!

I like the way Angus King pinched his nose to give Jinkies his character.

My Thoughts:
Wonderful start to a new-to-me series!

This book uses a lot of foul language, so I wouldn't recommend it to children. At all! Nor to anyone with a delicate constitution. But I would recommend this book to crime fiction lovers!

Like I said in my review of Grimm Up North by target="_top">David J. Gatward, I love dour and forbidding heroes in crime fighting stories! And Bob Hoon fits that to the T!

I do not have the ear for Scottish accent. I have to read and listen at the same time. This makes for slow reading. So, this is not exactly a fast-paced read. However, I like to go slow with this book. Savor it. Make it last. Rather than whizz through it. Makes the reading experience more enjoyable!

I therefore, do not blame the narrator for the slower pace of the book. His Scottish accent fits the character so very well! Bob after all is Scottish. He therefore needs a Scottish accent in the narration. Even though I need a bit of time trying to parse what the heck he said.

A much better book than the first one which was shite. The banter between the polis is entertaining even if the plot is very predictable.

I have never experienced an epilogue that had such a negative impact on a book; I am not even sure I thought it was possible. It is like he wrapped it all up then panicked and thought I need to keep this cash cow going.
The book itself is a huge let down after the previous book and the plot is beyond silly.
