From the Publisher
'A wonderfully controlled piece of writing with some delightfully wry observations... the quality of the prose alone makes the book worth reading.'
Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review
'Peter Temple has a way with words and the richness of his language alone makes this book rewarding... This is a great book.'
I Love A Mystery newsletter
'Swift pace... rapid fire dialog.'
'A must for thriller seekers.'
'Fast, funny and assured.'
Australian Book Review
'The coolest and most elegant of Australian crime writers.'
'Temple is a phenomenon.'
Sydney Morning Herald
'An Iron Rose has Temple’s usual grizzled police veteran as the central character, a despicable and mystifying crime and a support crew of goodies and baddies although as in most of Temple’s novels many make the switch to the dark side by the end of the book. But don’t read it for the story line; read it for the language. Temple’s dry Australian vernacular and wit should be required reading for everyone above the age of 16. This edition is introduced by Les Carlyon, a better match for Temple’s writing I could not imagine.'
