The Killing Code by J D Kirk, a review.

The Killing Code by J D Kirk

My daughter knowing of my interest both as a writer and reader of crime fiction gave me a copy of The Killing Code as a birthday present.

I had not read any of J D Kirk’s books before and this was my first encounter with Glasgow’s DCI Jack Logan.

It is always a difficult thing to write a review you want to give a reader a sense of what the book is about but give away as little of the plot as possible.

The story gripped me from the start. After the murder of a nurse, Logan’s desperate search for a brutal killer; kept me metaphorically on the edge of my seat. I raced through the pages, hoping Logan would find the murderer before another death occurred.

I really enjoyed this book it was well written, engaging and credible. I am really grateful to my daughter for introducing me to JD Kirk and DCI Logan; I shall be back to read more books from Mr Kirk.

  2. It’s always good to read recommendations, particularly of a genre I avoid.

  3. I learned from reading the book, How to Read Like a Professor, that multiple murders is one of the signatures of that genre – murder mysteries. The other things I learned are: the hero or heroine must reach the end of the story before dying (that helps with the suspense giving me heart failure), and whoever is closest to the main character better watch his or her back carefully. They’re likely to be next. Great review, Phil.
