Black Tide is the second of Peter Temple’s Jack Irish thrillers. It was first published in 1999. Jack Irish has no shortage of friends. Jockeys and journos, lawyers and standover men, people in nameless occupations who aren’t in the phone book. These days, though, the only family he sees are Irish men in faded football team photographs on the pub wall. So when Des Connors, the last link to Jack’s late father, calls to ask for help in the matter of a missing son, Jack is happy to lend a hand. But sometimes prodigal sons go missing for a reason. As Jack begins to dig, he discovers that Gary Connors was a man with something to hide. And his friends are people with darker and more deadly secrets.

Peter Temple wrote nine novels, including the four in the Jack Irish series. He won the Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction five times, and his widely acclaimed novels have been published in 20 countries. The Broken Shore won the UK’s prestigious Duncan Lawrie Dagger for the best crime novel of 2007. Truth won the 2010 Miles Franklin Literary Award, the first time a crime writer won an award of this calibre anywhere in the world.

‘Rips, snorts and crackles with a delicious pace.’—The Age; ‘Hallelujah, Jack Irish - lawyer, punter, dyed-in-the-wool Fitzroy follower and part-time cabinetmaker - is back…a stunning and welcome return…A fast, funny, fabulous thriller.'—Adelaide Advertiser
