5.0 out of 5 stars surely a breakthrough record, 10 Mar 2014

This review is from: Southeastern (Audio CD)
Isbell doesn't put a foot wrong here. This seems like a classic in the making. If the opening track doesn't convince you; well, your heart must be a hard place...

5.0 out of 5 stars Poise and power in a dramatic Highland thriller, 10 Mar 2014

This review is from: Agency Woman (Kindle Edition)
With Agency Woman, Logan delivers a tense and dramatic psychological thriller whilst further developing his customary literary edge. His gifts for characterization and language continue to grow, and here are married to a complex plot that keeps the reader gripped. Logan achieves a skilful juxtaposition of genres, to produce this bold statement which will captivate readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly original story collection, 17 Dec 2012

This review is from: Storm Damage (Kindle Edition)
The ten stories in this collection will take you on strange, fascinating journeys through worlds which seem both familiar and foreign . It is rare to find such original and eclectic work; prepare to be surprised.
The creativity on display here, and the courage in refusing to obey current conventions, both mark Logan as an important and irrepressible author.


The Cold Six Thousand
The Cold Six Thousand
by James Ellroy
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars a modern classic, 13 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cold Six Thousand (Hardcover)
This is James Ellroy's tour de force; a huge novel in which he transcends the genre of crime writing and creates something new. Ellroy has developed a clipped and brutal style which perfectly conveys the corrupt nature of American society in the second half of the 20th century. This is compelling and unique - thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a multi layered and mysterious tale, 14 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Logan has created a compelling and insightful work which delivers on many levels. It is humane, frightening, gripping and humorous; coloured with a rich understanding of the human condition throughout. This is a significant novel which deserves greater exposure.
