It takes a lot to rattle Jack Irish but, as Melbourne descends into a cold, wet winter, his mood is on the same trajectory. The woman in Jack’s life has reconnected with an old flame. He has gambled and lost massively and seen a champion horse put down. It’s not surprising that Jack’s mind is not fully on the job he’s being paid to do: find Robbie Colburne, occasional barman. But when Jack does get serious, he finds the freelance drink-dispenser is of great interest to some powerful people, people with very bad habits and a distinct lack of respect for the criminal justice system…Any lapse in concentration could prove fatal.

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.

'One of the world's finest crime writers.'—The Times; 'World-class.'—The Washington Post; 'Readers might be tempted to slow down and savor the prose if the plot line weren't so compelling.'—Library Journal; ‘Clever, funny, exciting and exceedingly well written. The author weaves multi layers of plot, life, characters and emotions into an exceedingly satisfying narrative that grips from first to last page. If you haven’t yet discovered Temple, track down his books. He’spremier class.’—Daily Examiner UK
