While lots of people are excited about the return of Bob Hoon in Southpaw next month, I still get asked on a daily basis what’s next for DCI Logan and the rest of his team.
Well, good news, Scottish crime fiction fans – Jack and co will be returning for a fourteenth novel in the not too distant future. In fact, the Highlands will (once again) find itself the scene of another grisly murder in early May – less than three months from when I’m sitting here writing this blog post!
And, even better news, I can today officially reveal the title and cover for this latest instalment. Ready? Here it comes now…
Oooh, that all sounds a bit sinister, doesn’t it? I do hope that Jack’s going to be OK…
You’ll have to wait until May to find out! The book will be available on all formats on May the 10th, with Angus King once again providing narration duties for the audiobook.

Cover and title are great, just please don’t be too hard on Jack
No one will ever want to go to visit Scotland with all these cruel people.
Actually they will, Jack Logan will keep Scotland safe, or at least the Highlands
That’ll be because he’s from Castlemilk
Always great. Keep them coming. As and when you can find the time.
Im defo hiving withdrawl symptoms DCI jack Logan n his gang r like a family 2 me i miss them bn such a long time since last book, but, i know i hiv 2 b patient n wait as it takes times 2 write a book n what great books they r.
Love the cover. Waiting patiently for a sneak preview
I love all of your books, they are easy to follow, with great characters, I’m looking forward to your next book.
Mmm interesting the tital has me guessing
Brilliant. Can’t wait.
Wow can’t wait, you are the best writer of all time, thank you for such fantastic books
I love the cover!! Any scene in the Highlands is awesome!!! Btw, I’ve developed an odd habit after reading your books and listening to you as well. As I’m reading, I have a Scottish accent in my head. I’m afraid to try it out loud for fear it will be aweful as I have an Oklahoman/Texan accent in real life. It’s bound to be aweful but that’s what you’ve done to me.
Your book cover looks great as usual
Love it, I can’t wait. I’ve been going through withdrawal symptoms.
As usual, great cover and interesting title. Can’t wait
Sound intriguing can’t wait
Get in can’t wait
Love it and can’t wait. I binged all your books and there’s been a wee gap. Glad you got over your man flu!
Cover looks interesting. Happy your keeping Jack in the highlands where he belongs. May seems a long way off at the moment.
😂 I was just craving a new Logan instalment, 👀 looking forward to reading this.
Like the cover, would the city of scars be my home town Glasgow by any chance? 🤣. Please keep Jack safe
Brilliant, cannae wait 🤩
Cover and title brilliant, cannot wait fro see what happens to Jack. Hope Hoon still about
Like the cover is it Glasgow??
Glasgow isn’t in the Highlands though. Is it Inverness?
It is indeed Inverness. 🙂
Love the cover & title! Laughed so hard at your overnight note. My son is also the son of a helicopter pilot 😂
Hope you’re feeling better. Take as much rest as you can. Hope Boyband’s behaving!
Brilliant. A birthday present 4 me to me. Take care of yourself and of
course Jack and team. Great cover
Looking forward to it. I binge read 1 – 13 and getting withdrawal symptoms! PS I enjoyed Hoon- and I didn’t think I would
Can’t wait! Love Jack and co….and there’s Hoon first. You must have been very busy.
Love the cover JD and so looking forward to this team working again. Can’t wait.
Brilliant J D always enjoy your books and love Loganand his team.
Await in anticipation.
Can’t wait, really looking forward to it.
When can we pre-order the new book – wouldn’t want to miss the date!
Fantastic news; it feels like I’ve been suffering from a bereavement since Jack’s last outing!
Great book cover, by the way!
Can no one spell anymore these days? Jk, lol,🍆 heids,fml.
I reckon Logan owes Hoon big time; while you’re busy writing Hoon’s wonderful adventures for us Jack’s had a bit of a rest… but it sounds like you’ll be making up for that! I’m sure Jack and his team will be victorious, whatever you throw at them – keep it up!
Love the cover. Can hardly wait for the book
I love the cover, great title too!
Please, please be good to Jack and his lady! Surely he deserves some happiness? Love the cover. Title’s giving me a wee bit of the heebies 😁 Still canny wait though.
Same here. I hope that the team get through without a serious casualty.
Looks and sounds very promising.
I am looking forward to find out out what it is in store for Logan and the team.
I cannot wait for this!!! I’ve been getting serious withdrawal symptoms. Such an amazing series, I’ve been hooked since book 1.
Nice cover. I’ve missed Jack and the team. Can’t wait to get into their next adventure.
Poor Jack. Don’t be bad to him. I like the cover and the fact it has a Kirk on it. 😆
Soooo love Jack & his team. As an avid crime thriller reader, J D Kirk is my favorite author.
Can’t wait to see where the next adventure takes us. PLEASE PLEASE never stop writing this series.
Having withdrawal symptoms too! Love the cover and title. Can’t wait to see Jack and the team back. I did love Bob Hoon in his book – laughed so much over his use of language!
Looking forward to it, books are riveting
Cover does not look too sinister- but I bet there’s something scary going on inside. Can’t wait – keep up the great work, JD.
All the best and stay well!
Excellent cover but please don’t kill Jack!!! Cannot wait till May👍
I’ve had to binge read the full series again as missing Jack and wee Taggart, not to mention the other lovely people. Looking forward to May and to the new Hoon in the meantime to keep me going. Xx
Great news, that’s due on my birthday. Unfortunately can’t get the cover picture, just a blank space.
Can’t wait but can I wait to take it on holiday in June. I don’t think so. Lol
Love DCI Jack Logan, always have a picture in my mind of a tall Ken Stott, waiting with bated breath for the new book, missing the quick wit when he speaks to Tyler, hope they all come through this one safely.
cover looks great and love the title. cant wait to read about jack and his team .
I’m still on book 3 but I’m loving the series. I’m so glad to know it’s still ongoing 🙂
Yay- love the title- engaging and enthralling. Picture blends well with the others.
Looking forward to reading it
Looking forward to it, I love Jack and co.
Looking forward to Jack and his team returning. Very mysterious title. 😒
I’m loving seeing how the characters develop as I only started reading the series after a trip to the Highlands in September and am now eagerly awaiting book 14. Can’t help having a soft spot for poor old Tyler but really enjoying the different dynamics between all the characters and the dry humour which you don’t always find in crime fiction, a real talent. Keep ‘em coming please JD.
And yet again, I am wishing my life away! Title and picture look great, Kirk from a Kirk?
Aw naw. Poor Jack. Can’t wait.
All the way from Florida I worry about Jack. Love all your stories and the new book cover is great!
So looking forward to City of Scars but also concerned for Jack 😕 and his crew . Liking the cover .
Think I may have to listen to all the audible books in order to be ready for these new happenings. I do hope Jack and all my friends are still ok by the end !!!!
Can’t wait. It’s been too long since I met up with my Scottish ‘family’. Please let us know as soon as we can pre-order. I sincerely hope I’m not going to need tissues for this one. Get well soon, Barry.
Sadly this doesn’t come up on my iPad.😢
Looking forward to it , 😀
I second all of the above
My favourite books by far and favourite characters I can not think of just one
Im afraid i previously read the books but now I do audiobooks as the narration by Angus king is sublime he really brings everything together and jack sounds exactly how you would expect him too
So looking forward to book 14. I’ve been having Jack withdrawals so I’ve been re-reading 1-13. You still make me laugh out loud! Love these characters like friends. Well maybe not Tyler. Just want to shake him sometimes! LOL
Looking forward to another “can’t put down” episode. Perhaps Harry Grimm can lend Jack a hand?
I am 92 years old and love reading your fantastic stories. I just hope that I live long enough to read your next one. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the update. Looking forward to it!
Love the cover and can’t wait to read the next installment of the gang! 🥰
Yes! Can’t wait!!

Be kind to Jack. He deserves some personal happiness because he works so hard to keep the criminals in check. Just be kind to Jack!
Can hardly wait! When will it be available for pre-order? Hoon book#2 already on pre-orde
Great to have another book on the way from one of Scotland’s best writers. Love the cover – where is it?
Thank you! The photo is taken across the River Ness in Inverness.
The Old High Church, a beautiful church, in a beautiful spot on the river Ness….what could Possibly go wrong here?
Can’t wait to find out! Roll on May
