Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The Irish films make a good introduction to the work of Peter Temple, who's just a terrific writer — sharp, funny and ambitious.' NPR - Fresh Air

"Temple's characters are complex, his plots complicated, his world smudged if not outright dirty - that is, his books are entirely credible." -HeadButler.com

"Peter Temple? Only one of the world's better novelists. But unknown to most American readers largely because he lives in Australia." -HeadButler.com

Library Journal
Gold Dagger Award winner Temple follows up Bad Debts with this second entry in his Jack Irish series (both titles were published in the United States by MacAdam/Cage in 2005 and are newly available from Bolinda Audio). Here, Jack finds himself running for his life after agreeing to help an old friend of his father's locate his missing son. Narrator Marco Chiappi (An Iron Rose) delivers the Australian accents and double entendres brilliantly. Particularly enjoyable are his spirited reading of Temple's action-packed descriptions and his voicing of Jack's internal reasoning as he works out the convoluted mystery. Those liking a roller coaster of a story that is also well written and skillfully presented will enjoy this series, whose protagonist evokes Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe.—Susan G. Baird, formerly with Oak Lawn P.L., IL

    Black Tide

    This is a great mystery, once you get into it you won't want to put it down. Its about this family and husband goes off to work and is catching the subway train, someone has bombed the train and wife is horrified. A year later she sees the anniversary of the bombing on tv and sees her husband was not killed in the bombing,like she was lead to believe. This book is 416 pages on my nook.
    Dont want to spoil it but its a great book you gotta read if you like mysterys.
